GrafX2 is a bitmap paint program inspired by the Amiga programs ​Deluxe Paint and Brilliance. Specialized in 256-color drawing, it includes a very large number of tools and effects that make it particularly suitable for pixel art, game graphics, and generally any detailed graphics painted with a mouse. The program is mostly developed on Linux and Windows, but is also portable on many other platforms.

If you are not sure why Grafx2 is so much better than the good old Microsoft Paint, here are some of the most important features :

  • Image editing in indexed colors (with palette), up to 256 colors
  • Classical tools : lines, circles, text, multiple undo/redo, built-in brushes, …
  • Less classical tools : airbrush, splines, gradient-filled shapes, custom brushes
  • Dual-view mode, you can see and draw both zoomed and actual size views at the same time
  • Extensive palette editor : RGB and HSL color systems, editing group of colors, define and create color ranges
  • Palette control : reorder colors without altering picture, common palette generation for merging two images
  • Shading mode : helps you to antialias with your own gradients
  • Grid mode : draw tile and easily assemble and copy them to create a screen mockup.
  • Patterned mode
  • Transparency, smoothing, smearing, and other advanced effects
  • Extensive and customizable shortcuts. You can control everything with the keyboard and disable the menu to draw fullscreen
  • Unusual screen modes : wide and tall pixels, constrained palettes. Very useful for pictures dedicated to 8 and 16-bit computers.
