MyPaint - Painting and drawing program on Linux Mint

MyPaint is an easy-to-use painting program which works well with Wacom graphics tablets and other similar devices. It comes with a large brush collection including charcoal and ink to emulate real media, but the highly configurable brush engine allows you to experiment with your own brushes and with not-quite-natural painting.
A distinctive feature is the ascetic interface that allows the user to focus on the process of drawing, only occasionally turning to the tools when needed.MyPaint comes with a large brush collection including charcoal and ink to simulate real environments, but customizable brush engine allows you to experiment with your own brushes.MyPaint is the equivalent of MS Paint (Windows) for Linux systems.

*MyPaint has a minimal interface and features exclusively for drawing, there are no typical for image editors, such as highlighting, zooming or filters.

*Main functions use the keyboard shortcuts, for example to increase (reduce) the brush to 'F' and 'D' respectively, the hide panel on 'Tab', etc.

*Great set of brushes and their settings, import/export, create and modify brushes and their groups. There are such brushes like blur, color mixing, erasing, etc.

*Support tablet. App is designed to work with it.

*Visual color picker in the color triangle under the cursor or window, supports RGB and HSV.

*Endless canvas delivers from within, giving unlimited scope for creativity, saving only the used portion.

*Supports OpenRaster (.ora), png and jpg, which enables further processing in other image editors or work with layers in editors that support OpenRaster, for example krita.

*Initial support for layers, change the transparency and copy/paste.

*Cross-platform. The program is available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS.
