PowerPaint is a comprehensive image editor that lets you modify photos and even create your own drawings.
There are a lot of desktop painting programs out there available to download. Some even come as standard when you buy a new Windows PC.
PowerPaint's developers post that PowerPaint is "the best tool to replace Windows Paint." By all accounts, it certainly boasts more features than its stripped down counterpart. Even in the "Image" drop-down menu alone, you can turn your drawing or photograph gray, halftone, invert the blacks and whites within the picture, adjust the brightness and contrast and much more. PowerPaint also comes with a bunch of pre-made basic shapes, lines, arrows, stars and banners. These are just simple examples of clipart, but it's certainly convenient to have them already installed.
In addition, PowerPaint has different types of texture brushes to add special effects to your images. You can fill in the background with a specific color and even insert an additional photograph into the image you're already working with.
PowerPaint supports the following formatsOpens: JPG, BMP, TIF, GIF, PNG, PCX, TGA, EMF
Saves: JPG, BMP, TIF, GIF, PNG
