Well here's a little list of some freeware image editors...

Arrow Ultimate Paint LE

Ultimate Paint is a full-featured 32-bit Windows graphics program for image creation, viewing and manipulation. On this page you can download different versions, see what extras UP gives you compared to other paint programs, take a look at its cool plug-in effects, register the trial version and browse the tutorials. In the latest trial version all basic functionality can be used without limitations. In addition we have also introduced a new freeware version.
UP supports JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, PCX, AVI (reading only), TGA, WMF/EMF, ICO (reading only), IFF/LBM and WAP BMP image formats and Twain compatible scanners. You can easily print your image, setting its size, position and orientation.
It has a flexible brush handling method which encourages creative drawing. It's similar to what good old Deluxe Paint had, so if you're familiar with DP, you will love Ultimate Paint. You can also retouch and enhance photos using a comprehensive set of built-in tools and plug-ins. Features include resizing, rotating, flood filling, text operations and a lot more. Comes with dozens (more than a hundred!) of cool plug-in filters, and Adobe plug-ins are also supported. All pictures are handled 24 bit. The user interface is adjustable to the user's experience level, thus both novice users and experts can use it conveniently.

NOTE: Freeware Version
Same as the trial version, but does not support Adobe Photoshop plug-ins and has only 20 image filters built-in. Can be used without any limitations.

Source code is available under the LGPL. If you don't see links in the download section I can provide then on request. I'm usually hacking on code rather than keeping every last i dotted and t crossed. If you don't see a feature you want your welcome to add it to the code and send me a diff.
While i.Mage is not deprecated I don't spend a lot of time on it these days. Requests for features or bug fixes may take some time to get some attention.

Arrow GIMPshop

GIMPshop is a modification of the free/open source GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), intended to replicate the feel of Adobe Photoshop. Its primary purpose is to make users of Photoshop feel comfortable using GIMP.

It shares all GIMP's advantages, including the long feature list and customisability, while addressing some common criticisms regarding the program's interface: GIMPshop modifies the menu structure to closely match Photoshop's, adjusts the program's terminology to match Adobe's, and, in the Windows version, uses a plugin called 'Deweirdifier' to combine the application's numerous windows in a similar manner to the MDI system used by most Windows graphics packages. While GIMPshop does not support Photoshop plugins, all GIMP's own plugins, filters, brushes, etc.
Due to the changes to the interface, many Photoshop tutorials can be followed in GIMPshop unchanged, and most others can be adapted for GIMPshop users with minimal effort.

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.

RealWorld Paint.COM has much hidden power under the hood and harbors features unexpected in a freeware image editor. Many of its drawing tools and image filters are able to do gamma-aware blending and color gradient interpolation, producing correct colors by default.

A powerful scripting system allows users to greatly extend and customize the functionality of RW Paint.COM using JavaScript. For example the "Create screenshot" command (used to generate the screenshot above) is a scripted function.

Beside the ability to use native plug-ins for virtually everything (filters, tool, fills, windows, codecs, storage, ...), RealWorld Paint.COM is also able to use the vast amount of plug-ins compatible with Adobe Photoshop.


See ya
