GNU Paint
GNOME paint program

Gpaint is a small, easy-to-use paint program for GNOME. It features drawing tools (ovals, freehand, polygon, and text, with fill or shallow for polygons and closed freehand), the ability to cut and paste by selecting irregular regions or polygons, print support using gnome-print, a modern, easy-to-use user interface with tool and color palettes, the ability to edit multiple images at the same time with running multiple sessions of gpaint, and all the image processing features present in xpaint.
