Our tech is modified to be used for testing purposes without a license key. To start testing just follow this Get Started guide and leave out the step of entering the commercial license keys. The editor will simply render a watermark over the preview and final results. And in case you need any technical assistance, make sure to reach out to us: We’ll be glad to help.

Note: Since we're working with the latest web technologies, all code samples are using the ECMAScript 6 standard. If you're using an older ECMAScript / JavaScript standard, please use Babel to compile the examples to ES5.

PhotoEditor SDK can be integrated with just a few lines of code, any it comes with rich API, which allows for complete customization.

import { UIEvent, PhotoEditorSDKUI } from 'photoeditorsdk';
const editor = await PhotoEditorSDKUI.init({
container: '#editor',
image: 'example.png', // relative to assets directory
// Please replace this with your license:
license: '',
