       gpaint - a small easy to use paint program for GNOME


       gpaint [filename]...


       This  manual page briefly documents gpaint (GNU Paint), a small-scale painting program for
       GNOME, the GNU Desktop Environment. gpaint does not attempt to compete with  GIMP,  it  is
       just  a  simple  drawing  package  based on xpaint, along the lines of 'Paintbrush' from a
       popular non-free operating system.

       gpaint is still work in progress and many features are  still  being  developed.  However,
       gpaint is usable and useful for simple image editing tasks.


       Currently gpaint has the following features:

       *  Drawing  tools  such  as  ovals,  freehand,  polygon  and text, with fill or shadow for
       polygons and closed freehand shapes.

       * Cut and paste by selecting irregular regions or polygons.

       * Preliminary print support using gnome-print.

       * Modern, easy to use user interface with tool and color palettes.

       * Multiple-image editing in a single instance of the program.

       * All the image processing features present in xpaint.


       Future plans include the implementation of zooming  in/out,  image  scaling/rotation,  and
       turning  gpaint  into  a  Bonobo  component  for  simple  image editing tasks inside other
