LazPaint is an open source and free to download raster image editor aimed at users who are looking for an application that is more easily accessible than GIMP. While GIMP offers a broad range of powerful features that mean many see it as a genuine open source competitor to Photoshop, that power comes with a steep learning curve that is often a barrier to use for less experienced users.
This means that there is a market for less powerful, but more user friendly image editors.
LazPaint presents its users with a pretty clear and easily understood user interface...For image editor newbies who aren't looking for an overly powerful package or to enhance their photos, I believe that it is worth taking a look at.
