Pinta is a free, open-source image editing software designed to offer a straightforward yet powerful alternative to more intricate image editing tools like Adobe Photoshop or GIMP.
The software is specifically compatible for tasks such as photo retouching, drawing, and image composition. Pinta provides a set of drawing tools such as a pencil, brush, eraser, and shapes like rectangles and ellipses, and users can also make selections using the marquee, lasso, and magic wand tools.
In addition, its support for layers, filters and effects, along with its cross-platform compatibility and open-source nature, make it a perfect choice for those looking for a free and versatile image editing solution.
The tool's user interface (using the GTK+ toolkit) is clean and intuitive, making it effortless to pick up and understand for newcomers to image editing. It is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux platforms.
