Rassam-paint is a free painting application using GTK with support for formats that include PNG, JPG, BMP, CUR, ICO, TIFF, PGM, PBM and basic image editing tools such as shapes or text.
Rassam-paint is a free, basic painting application using GTK2 which comes with tools such as crop, rectangular and free hand selection modes, drawing tools such as pencil, brush, eraser, flood fill. Basic shapes like lines, ellipses and rectangles are also supported.
The program also allows you to zoom in or out, rotate and flip images, and enable or disable transparency.
Information displayed in the status bar includes the image size and cursor coordinates.
The only program I encountered was a freeze when trying to use the text tool, after getting a warning about data corruption.
