This compact program edits images and animations in the most popular formats. Despite its small size and light footprint, Saint Paint Studio has all the essential image-editing features, including tools for cropping, resizing, correcting colors, applying various effects, and drawing with a brush or pen.
Similar to full-fledged graphic-design packages, the program supports layers and lets you create simple animations. Saint Paint uses all the standard hot keys found in other image editors. However, the interface is crammed with tools and is outdated compared to other, similar products. On the plus side, mouse-over labels make it easy to figure out what each tool is, but the overall aesthetic feels drab and could use a redesign.
The program no longer comes bundled with Talking TimeKeeper, a great improvement, although the nag screen still exists for trial users. Considering its small size and decent capabilities, Saint Paint makes a nice pick for those who don't need the advanced features in more expensive image editors, but it doesn't offer enough to make it unique or a must-have.
