< http://mtpaint.sourceforge.net/ >

It's more user friendly, looks better (gtk1 instead of xlib), and has more features such as:
- exporting ascii art
- animated gifs
- gamma, brightness, contrast etc advanced image manipulation
Oh, did I mention it's 27kb smaller than Xpaint :P
So, any objections?
PS: < I've already compiled it >, take a test drive

Posted by roberts on Dec. 04 2007,20:46Does it support xpm? Our iconView.lua is using xpaint as an icon editor.
Posted by mikshaw on Dec. 05 2007,00:38Yes, it supports xpm. I've been using mtpaint for the last few weeks on my slackware system specifically for that purpose, and it is the *only* gui image editor on that box that can write XPM. I think the xpm lib in slackware might be broken, and perhaps mtpaint writes the file directly?
In any case, I particularly like using mtpaint for xpm because it automatically loads the color palette from the xpm file rather than displaying its own built-in palette as xpaint seems to do.
