We’ve covered NY-based graphics suite Aviary several times since their initial launch. Today I learned about Sumopaint and it is very slick. It has most of the basic features of Photoshop or PaintShopPro. From what I can tell Sumopaint has basically all of the drawing tools along with actual layers. Some of the tools include: blending modes, layer effects, brush tool, ink tool, and a text tool.
Images can be saved locally or into a Sumopaint account. I did notice that the local save function didn’t work in IE. There are a variety of community features including voting and a comprehensive photo search for photos stored on Sumpaint.
Kevin Tofel was impressed with Sumopaint when he reviewed it on their initial launch this past summer. Brad Linder wondered if it was a dupe of another online photo tool, Splashup. I could see my sister using Sumopaint for her basic graphic creation needs.
I assume once they exit beta, some sort of premium services will make up their business model.
