Officially supported file formats are JPEG, PNG, BMP, and GIF

That said, we do our best to accept any image format your browser can read. sRGB is the only officially supported color space. CMYK causes some browsers to show you the wrong colors while you edit, though the result should still come out ok.

The maximum allowed image size is 8 megapixels

Your active size limit can be configured in the app up to the maximum limit. Images larger than the active size limit will be shrunk to that size. Note that this is pixels, not bytes; and there is currently no image byte size limitation.

Officially supported browsers are the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Microsoft Edge

Supported platforms are modern desktops and laptops, though other modern browsers on other platforms may also work.


Your image size exceeds your active size limit. For best results, please crop the image to the portion you wish to clip.
