KolourPaint is a free, raster graphics editor by KDE, similar to Microsoft's Paint application before Windows 7, but has some additional features such as support for transparency.
It aims to be conceptually simple to understand, providing a level of functionality targeted towards the average user. KolourPaint is designed for daily tasks such as:
- Painting: drawing diagrams and "finger painting"
- Image Manipulation: editing screenshots and photos; applying effects
- Icon Editing: drawing clipart and logos with transparency
In version K Desktop Environment 3.3, KolourPaint replaced KPaint as the standard simple painting application.
KolourPaint has a port to Microsoft Windows as part of the KDE on Windows initiative.
