Best Free Paint Program

Best Free Paint Program | Tools Of The Trade: Open Source & Free! | Scoop.it
In our 2012 review of the top free paint program, we found 5 programs we could recommend with the best of these as good as any commercial product.
Dr. Heidi Maston's insight:

Paint programs, although they overlap in functions, are really a different class of product from raster editors such as Adobe Photoshop and the GIMP. Both the aforementioned  apply artistic filter effects to photos and transform them to look like works of art. Vector-graphics drawing software, such as CorelDRAW and Inkscape, which are programs that have freehand illustration tools with the ability to render images at any size, also differ. Even traditional 2D animation programs like Toon Boom Studio and Pencil, that use both raster/vector imaging, are more concerned with animation rather than paint manipulation.
