Simple painting editor with powerful tools

AvancePaint is a simple but powerful painting editor that gives you bunches of options when it comes to drawing on your computer.

Admittedly, AvancePaint looks seriously out of date, and although the program is compatible with Windows Vista, its Help section is not. You shouldn't really let that bother you, however, as the program is easy to navigate and you'll be able to discover all the tools through trial and error.

AvancePaint is very much a painting editor and a simple one at that, so don't expect Photoshop-like miracles. Even so, it hides a number of interesting tools and effects, and you should be able to use it to produce very interesting art. AvancePaint will allow you to set your pictures as a wallpaper, create profiles and add effects like borders, frames and symbols.

AvancePaint is best thought of as a feature-packed alternative to Paint, and as such, it does a good job. Unfortunately, its appearance is pretty off-putting, but if you can get past that, you'll have a lot of fun creating pictures with AvancePaint.

Simple, feature-packed editing power for your pictures - AvancePaint.

    A fairly good free paint program.
    I tested the free AvancePaint for half an hour and I found it to be quite capable once you learn how to use it. It lacks natural brushes but you can compensate for that by using a combination of the tools and e More
