I have been using this FREE painting program for years and HIGHLY recommend it. Even though it was released way back in 1997, it's powerful yet simple to use and everything is intuitive so it won't take forever to learn how to draw and edit photos.
Unfortunately the sites where you can download it are full of all kinds of unwanted junk, so I am making it available for download from Dropbox.
It's possible that you could get a message "Failed to update the system regristry. Please try using REGEDIT." If you do get such a message, just click OK and the program will launch.
