May 23rd, 2010 | by admin |

Image resizing and editing are the most comon tasks we do on daily basis.Although windows has mspaint software installed by default.But if you have ever used it, you must have noticed that it lacks several tools which we need.Another problem of using MSpaint is that, whenever you save image to another format (e.g. bmp to jpg) there will be massive color loss and image will become almost useless.

There are some free photo editors available to download which are Free Alternates to MSPaint.We can use them for doing daily photo editing,resizing and converting tasks.Most of these free photo editing softwares also have batch process, which we can use to do a same task for multiple images.

1) Gimp


GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.

It has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.

2) Paint.net


Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software for computers that run Windows. It  features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help,  tutorials, and plugins.

3) Mypaint


MyPaint is a fast and easy open-source graphics application for digital painters. It lets you focus on the art instead of the program. You work on your canvas with minimum distractions, bringing up the interface only when you need it.

4) Tuxpaint


Tux Paint is a free, award-winning drawing program for children ages 3 to 12 (for example, preschool and K-6). It combines an easy-to-use interface, fun sound effects, and an encouraging cartoon mascot who guides children as they use the program.

5) Paint.COM


RealWorld Paint.COM can display images using any zoom factor and always shows 100% accurate preview of the drawn shape. Tooltips are displayed throughout the user interface to explain meaning of controls.

After a geometric shape is added to an image, control handles appear and users can further adjust the shape. New points can be added to poly-lines, curves and polygons by dragging a handle of an edge.

RealWorld Paint.COM allows you to edit pictures with layers and assign effects to every layer. A layer can have for example a bevel effect active giving all shapes a 3D look and feel.

6) Photo Pos Lite


Photo Pos Lite provides many of the same tools for photo editing and retouching that other programs do. However, this program nudges slightly ahead of similar competition with its layout.

7) mtPaint


mtPaint is a painting program which Mark Tyler developed from scratch so he could easily create pixel art and manipulate digital photos.
It uses the GTK+ toolkit (version 1 or 2) and runs on PC’s via the GNU/Linux or Windows operating systems. Due to its efficient design it can run on older PC hardware (e.g. a 200MHz CPU and 16MB of free RAM).

mtPaint is free software, which means you are able to freely use, modify and distribute it according to the GNU General Public License.
