Drawing An Alternative To “Microsoft Paint” For Linux

If you have used Windows in past or you still use MS Windows, you may know that MS Paint is very handy tool. Linux doesn’t have its own paint or photo editing application, few Linux distributions include such application developed by 3rd party.
Drawing‘ is a simple basic image editor, which functions similar to Microsoft Paint but targets the Linux desktop. It is open-source and available for free under license GNU GPL v3. We may not be able to get everything done with this application but we can use it for screenshot editing, basic image editing and so on.
Drawing supports popular image formats such as JPG, PNG, and BMP. Using this application you can quickly add call-outs, text on memes, and other basic operations such as crop, scale, flip, saturate, and rotate etc. The selection tool allows you to define an area (rectangle or free), which you can move, cut, copy, paste, edit with canvas tools, export, open as a new image, etc.
