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.

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.

not that I'm voting for these, but if you have GNU Paint, why not similar ones like KolourPaint, XPaint, MTPaint, MyPaint?

Mm-hm. That I agree with.

Sometimes the GIMP, sometimes Krita (the AppImages make it very easy to use). I run a much-used copy of Adobe's Photoshop CS2 under WINE (ancient as hell, but still pretty powerful; I bought it back in the day, but have also used the GIMP a lot over the years, so am used to both). It's one of the very few Adobe products that run perfectly in the WINE environment.....

I also use a Windoze-only photo-editor called PhotoScape, by MooiTech. Again, everything works under WINE. I got so handy with it under XP, since it was introduced back in 2007, that I can't imagine not using it!


Mike.
