Any FOSS alternatives to MS Paint? Krita and Glimpse are quite sophisticated, so maybe something simple to just use in a pinch.

If Windows XP level of MS Paint is good enough, I believe KDE’s Kolourpaint is something you might want.

YES. This is exactly what I’m talking about. Thanks so much!

oh, but is there a Windows version or something similar?

KDE does not seem to publish Windows versions of it. I assume there would be little point in releasing a Windows version, since Windows already has MS Paint by default.

If you fancy something like Paint.NET, you might consider Pinta. Pinta is FOSS and supports a number of operating systems.

Wonderful. This is perfect. Thanks so much!

Krita, GIMP and KolourPaint are all good but server drastically different purposes.

I’d like to add Quick Draw Everywhere to the line-up (although it’s an android app)

IDK if this helps but there’s also JSPaint which is a pretty close approximation in the browser.

I don’t know if it’s too complicated or not, but I’d say give paint.net a try if you’re using Windows: https://www.getpaint.net/index.html

Oooh of course! It’s not exactly Open-Source, but it’s free and really good. Cheers.

It’s just available for GNU, but thanks anyway.

was there something here or did you write *deleted by creator* yourself?

I was recommending KolourPaint but I realized it has already been recommended by someone else so I deleted it.
