GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software suitable for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, a image format converter, etc.
GraphicsMagick is a robust collection of tools and libraries which support reading, writing, and manipulating an image in over 90 major formats including popular formats like DPX, DICOM, BMP, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PNG, PNM, SVG, and TIFF. A high-quality 2D renderer is included, which provides a subset of SVG capabilities. C, C++, Perl, Tcl, and Ruby are supported. Originally based on ImageMagick, GraphicsMagick focuses on performance, minimizing bugs, and providing stable APIs and ABIs. It runs on all modern variants of Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X.
Tux Paint is a simple and entertaining drawing program geared towards young children. It has a simple interface, sound effects, and a cartoon character (Tux, the Linux penguin). Along with drawing brush strokes, lines and shapes, you can also enter text and place "rubber stamp" (or "sticker") images on the picture. Tux Paint is extensible, and could be useful in an educational environment (such as a grammar, elementary, or grade school). It's portable across numerous platforms, and runs well even on slower systems like the Pentium 133MHz.
CinePaint is a deep paint image retouching tool that supports higher color fidelity than ordinary painting tools. CinePaint is used to retouch feature films and for professional photography. CinePaint opens high fidelity image file formats such as DPX, 16-bit TIFF, and OpenEXR, and conventional formats like JPEG and PNG. It has a flipbook for movie playback of image sequences in RAM. It supports 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit color channels, HDR, and CMS.
Barcode Studio is designed to quickly create high-quality barcode images. It is commonly used for pre-press requirements, postal bar-coding, desktop publishing applications, mobile tagging, print shops, and general barcode purposes. It supports all linear barcodes (like Code39, 2of5, EAN, UPC, Code39, Code128, and EAN/UCC128), 2D barcodes (like PDF417, QR-Code, Aztec Code, DataMatrix ECC200, and MaxiCode), GS1 DataBar, and HIBC codes. Barcode data can be entered manually or imported from external data sources. Serial numbers are created automatically on demand. It has a built-in quality preview. Single as well as batch barcode creation is supported via the command line or the graphical user interface. Barcodes can be printed directly, copied to the clipboard, generated as image files (BMP, GIF, JPG, TIFF, or PNG) or exported as vector graphics (EPS, EMF, WMF , PDF, or PostScript). The created barcodes are useable immediately: Just insert the barcode graphics into your artwork, database, form, or any document.
Pixel is an application for editing, retouching, manipulating, and animating RGB, CMYK, and HDR images. It was formerly known as Pixel32. It is available for Windows, Linux, Linspire, Mac OS X, BeOS, Zeta, QNX, MorphOS, FreeBSD, eComStation, OS/2, SkyOS and even old plain DOS, for both x86 and PowerPC architectures.
