D-Pixel is a 256 colour bitmap editor designed for editing pixel graphics. It is my own personal editor which I think other people will also enjoy using. It has many features not available in other 256 colour paint programs:

  • Easy to use and simple icon based interface
  • Resolution independent interface and canvas area
  • Smooth zooming and panning
  • A persistent Workspace which automatically saves settings and workspace images on exit, and then loads them back in on the next start of the program
  • Customisable right mouse button, and held left and right mouse button drawing options
  • Many different paint modes, some based on palette entry changes, and others on true colour effects mapped to the current palette
  • Built in 4 layer system for easy erasing of drawing actions
  • Multiple undo / redo system
  • Both full Circle / Ellipse drawing and optional section drawing
  • Tile mapping mode for automatic changes to duplicate tiles

Seashore is an open source image editor for Mac OS X's Cocoa framework. It features gradients, textures and anti-aliasing for both text and brush strokes. It supports multiple layers and alpha channel editing. It is based around the GIMP's technology and uses the same native file format.

However, unlike the GIMP, Seashore only aims to serve the basic image editing needs of most computer users, not to provide a replacement for professional image editing products. Seashore was created by Mark Pazolli who, together with a handful of other developers and helpful users, still develops it to this day.
