Pinta is a free and open-source image editing application which falls into the category of paint programs and also interesting to note is that the program is based off of the wildly popular Paint.NET application.
This image editing is full of useful features including an unlimited amount of history states (which remaining tame while using memory), layers which Photoshop users might find useful and a very wide range of colors through the color palette which allows for a high degree of customization.
Like any other modern paint program, Pinta has razor-sharp selection tools which can differential between different color tones which allows you to automatically select different parts of the photograph or project you have open.
Another good feature of Pinta is its support for multi-tasking which allows you to switch between and work on different images during the same session.
Some of the paint tools which are included are paint fill, pencil brushes, paint brushes, a cloning tool and adding text to images.
Overall, a very nice editing application and a great use of the open source code made available by the Paint.NET project.
Pinta can add text to an image and apply special effects to a picture.Pinta features and highlights:
