PINTA is an open-source, cross-platform bitmap image drawing and editing program with with support for layers, blending, transparency, and plugins.

its many features are typical of image editing software including drawing tools, image filters and colour adjustment tools. The focus on usability is reflected in several of the main features of the program: Unlike some simple image editing software, Pinta also features support for image layers.


KRITA is a free and open-source raster graphics editor designed primarily for digital painting and animation purpose. It features low-distract UI, high-quality OpenGL accelerated canvas, color management support, advanced brush engine, non-destructive layers and masks, group-based layer management, vector artwork support and switchable customization can go to this page to get the full story. Suffice to say if you want an alternative to GIMP with all the complexity, Krita is for you.


Personally I use KOLORPAINT to edit and create/edit my 2D sprites and icons. Its fast, simple to use and works well with ENIGMA as an external graphic and background editor.
