A Paint tool for Windows, Mac and Linux

There are a variety of software available for painting and image editing works loaded with a bouquet of features and many of which are actually inappropriate for beginners and home users. Here is a little, free painting and image editing program that every one can give try.

HeliosPaint is a free, simple paint program for Windows, Mac, Linux and UNIX operating systems. This little program (below 1Mb for Windows) can be used for creating, editing and resizing images.

HeliosPaint includes most of the tools necessary for creating or editing an image such as sizeable brushes, pencil for editing pixels, shape tools, Scissors, lasso and wand for selecting and moving image segments, HSB/RGB/contrast/gamma adjustment of image, image filters, etc.

Some tools provide excellent performance like a commercial application, for instance, image filtering tools and color transparency adjustment. The application has an intuitive interface, with a little effort anyone can easily work with this application. However some works takes little long time to load on my PC.

The program is written in Java, so Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 5.0 or greater is be installed on your computer to run the program. The application has no installation required.
