KolourPaint is a free, raster graphics editor by KDE, similar to Microsoft's Paint application before Windows 7,[4] but has some additional features such as support for transparency.[5][6]

It aims to be conceptually simple to understand, providing a level of functionality targeted towards the average user. KolourPaint is designed for daily tasks such as:

  • Painting: drawing diagrams and "finger painting"
  • Image Manipulation: editing screenshots and photos; applying effects
  • Icon Editing: drawing clipart and logos with transparency

In version K Desktop Environment 3.3, KolourPaint replaced KPaint as the standard simple painting application.[7]

KolourPaint has a port to Microsoft Windows as part of the KDE on Windows initiative.
