In 1999, Bill Gates famously wrote off Linux -- free, collaboratively written software -- as a threat to Windows only in the relatively tiny "student and hobbyist market." But by last year Microsoft itself had become one of the top 20 corporate contributors to Linux, writing code to make sure its products work well with the ubiquitous software -- a sign of just how thoroughly Linux has conquered the enterprise.

Free Open Source Image Editor LazPaint Review

Free Open Source Image Editor LazPaint Review | Linux and Open Source | Scoop.it

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.

Ashok Ramachandran's curator insight, June 13, 2013 8:41 AM

As described above, if you want a free open source image editor with features comparable to Adobe Photoshop, go for GIMP. However, if you want a more user friendly image editor, then you can check out LazPaint.
