What is your faviorite paint program
« on: June 07, 2013, 09:22:13 AM »
I have played with many paint programs over the years, which 1 is your faviorite?

I came across real paint a few weeks ago and it's becoming my faviorite over gimp and paint.net, it has both vector and raster layers which means I don't need to use both gimp and inkscape to get the effects that I want, it is kind of like a free version (ulead's photo Impact).

I guess it depends on what you are making.

A few of my favorites for "Pixel Art":
Grafx2 (See: http://propellerpowered.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=5ae5492a208e21c2ee791f56ea2cf657&topic=390.0)

Pickle http://www.pickleeditor.com/index.html

If I am having to create any more complicated graphics I go back and forth between gimp and Paint Shop Pro.

ArtRage. Runs on mac, pc, and iOS. Especially great on iPad with Nomad Brush (a brush-like stylus that works on capacitive touch screens without batteries).

Never heard of that one before, thanks for the tip.

I have been using (but calling it my favorite would be a grave understatement ;)) Windows Paint.  I have never found anything that is as quick and simple (and maybe "brain dead", too).  I really need something that is between a general paint program and a CAD program; the measurement and snap tools and the ability to define a shape/object/component would really come in handy.  Those things are sorely missed, each time that I fire up Paint, but I haven't found any better solution that is very simple and has a short learning curve.
