I still remember going to computer class and that one of the things they taught us was to use Microsoft Paint. I've never been a big fan of that software (or any of the same company), but Microsoft Paint has its "fans," so to speak. And since the Linux community is capable of cloning everything, there are several alternatives, among which the protagonist of this article that has recently launched TuxPaint 0.9.25.
With so many alternatives, it is difficult to choose one, but this one bears the name of the Linux mascot and has been in development for a long time, which is why it is one of the best known. The new version has been available since last year, which could be a long time if we were in the middle of the year, but in reality we have only been able to use it for a week. And among the most outstanding novelties, one stands out above the others: Tux Paint 0.9.25 allows you to export a series of images or slides to animated GIFs.
Tux Paint 0.9.25 highlights
The news that they have introduced in the last seven months are the following:
- Ability to export multiple individual images to animated GIFs.
- New options in the shapes tool.
- The erase tool has been updated and now includes smaller sizes, as well as the ability to apply finer, contiguous brush strokes when moving the pointer quickly.
- The on-screen keyboard will now appear on larger screens.
Tux Paint is a multiplatform software, which means that it is available for Linux, macOS and Windows, as well as Android and BSD, but for the latter there is no new version yet. Linux users can install it from different ways, some available in the official download page. They should update the Flathub version soon, and Arch Linux based system users can now install it from the AUR.
