Simple paint program for creating icons and pixel-based art

'mtPaint' is a simple GTK+1/2 painting program designed for creating icons and pixel-based artwork. It can edit indexed palette or 24 bit RGB images and offers basic painting and palette manipulation tools. Its main file format is PNG, although it can also handle JPEG, GIF, TIFF, BMP, XPM, and XBM files. Features include the ability to protect certain colours on the canvas from being painted over, up to 100 undo levels, a multiple image clipboard, the ability to view images between 10% and 2000% of their original size, and Spanish and Czech translations.
