This package provides the simplified painting program rgbPaint,
a spin-off from mtPaint by the same authors. Light on dependencies,
it can edit and save images in ICO, JPEG, or PNG format only,
though it can also read GIF, PCX, SVG, TGA, and TIFF formats.
The user interface is intentionally kept simple, without drop-down
menus. Ten brushes are provided, and a palette of twenty colors,
each of which can be replaced from a color blender. The available
actions are painting, filling, and area selection. The program can
also start by taking a screen snapshot to use as the initial image.
Originally aimed at the OLPC initiative, rgbPaint works well with
the Sugar desktop environment - especially with a graphics tablet;
even young children can quickly master it to produce true brushwork!
