This is the only one I actually use (even if rarely), so yay.

Krita is probably the least horrible (free) option.

Is GNU Paint actually still being developed?

still the GIMP for me.
surprisingly lightweight, usually does what i need.
my editing needs are small, i rarely create sth from scratch.
for size optimization i use cli tools.

"KolourPaint is a free and open-source raster graphics editor by KDE."
I rarely use anything else.

GIMP. Surprised to see DigiKam in the list, I use it but not for this.

Different tools for different jobs. I use GIMP, Krita, and RawTherapee but I voted for RawTherapee because it fills an important niche (Krita is great for digital art but I don't really get the full benefit of it without a graphics tablet and that isn't really something that I'm into anyway).

GIMP. Fast & easy. Darktable is nice too though.
