LazPaint – free and open source, cross-platform light editor of images with multiple tools and filters


  • LazPaint is positioned as an analogue of PaintBrush and Paint.Net;
  • Support for all major file formats, including multi-layer raster images and 3D files;
  • It is possible to save/export an image/drawing to various graphic formats;
  • Print support;
  • You can zoom the image;

Manipulation with the image:

  • Resize image/drawing;
  • The functions of rotating clockwise/counterclockwise (90/180 degrees) and mirroring the image horizontally and vertically are available;
  • The “Resample” function is available.

Color manipulation:

  • Colorize: set the color of an image while preserving intensities;
  • Shift colors: cycle colors and change color less (saturation);
  • Intensity: make colors lighter or darker without making them white;
  • Lightness: make colors lighter or darker by making them whiter;
  • Normalize: use the whole range of each color channel and alpha channel;
  • Negative: invert colors (with gamma correction);
  • Linear negative: invert colors (without gamma correction);
  • Grayscale: converts colors to grayscale with gamma correction.

Filters. Filters can be applied to the whole image or to the active selection:

  • Radial blur: non directional blur;
  • Motion blur: directional blur;
  • Custom blur: blur according to a mask;
  • Sharpen: makes contours more acute, complementary to Smooth;
  • Smooth: softens whole image, complementary to Sharpen;
  • Median: computes the median of colors around each pixel, which softens corners;
  • Contour: draws contours on a white background (like a pencil drawing);
  • Emboss: draws contours with shadow;
  • Sphere: spherical projection;
  • Cylinder: cylinder projection;
  • Clouds: add clouds of the current pen color.

  • Drawing tools: pen, eraser, eyedropper, fill with solid color/texture/gradient, add text, warp, various selection tools, draw geometric shapes (rectangle, ellipse, polygon, curve), lines (poly lines, curves);
