GNU Paint (gpaint) is a simple, easy-to-use paint program for GNOME, the GNU Desktop. Gpaint starts as a port of xpaint and takes advantages of features unique to the GNOME environment. Gpaint is licensed under the GNU GPL, version 2 or later.
- Drawing tools–ovals, freehand, polygon, text, with fill or shallow for polygons and closed freehand.
- Cut and paste by selecting irregular regions or polygons.
- Print support using gnome-print (still flaky, will be improved upon next release)
- Modern, easy-to-use user interface with tool and color palettes
- Editing multiple images at the same time without running multiple instances of the image editor
- All image processing features present in xpaint
