Title: All the Paint Programs You'll Ever Need - has reached compulsory school age
Post by: fernewelten on 15 Jun 2018, 00:08
Hello folks,

AFAICS, the sticky post "All the Paint Programs You'll Ever Need" has been updated in 2011 the last time, so it has reached compulsory school age by now.

Despite the brash claim at the start, "This is a list of all the working (highlight of the author) links to paint programs", several are not, amongst others:


Synfig is mis-labelled. This is mainly an animation program, not a vector program.

Time for some modernization, perhaps? :-\

Photopea.com : This is a 99%-faithful clone of Photoshop (literally a clone : it's Photoshop only with a different name. I couldn't believe my eyes when I found it), but it's online and free (www.photopea.com). It's a life-saver when you can't open .psd files because you're not on your usual work computer or when you don't have the permissions to install stuff on the machine. Just open Chrome or Firefox, go to photopea.com, and here you go.

Krita (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=55901.0) can do a lot for your rastergfx needs.
