JDraw is a pixel oriented graphics editor written in JAVA for most systems!



Quote
JDraw is a pixel oriented graphics editor designed especially for small to medium-sized pictures used to decorate web pages. It is completely written in Java, simple to use and saves (animated) GIFs, ICOs and PNGs.

I started writing this tool because it took me ages to do little things like changing a couple of pixels, making a colour transparent, adjusting some RGB values. Most graphic tools irritate with hundreds of sexy filters but have steep learning curves or just don't care about simple pixels. So it's high time for a good old pixel editor.

Programming language: JDraw is entirely written in Java. It supports JRE 1.4, 1.5 and 6.

Supported Platforms: JDraw's latest beta version was developed and tested under Windows XP.

Features so far:

    * plain, filled and gradient filled rectangles
    * plain, filled and gradient filled ovals
    * plain and gradient filled text
    * colour picking, cropping, filling
    * image scaling (since v1.2beta)
    * image rotation (since v1.2.1beta)
    * copying/moving clips
    * rotating/flipping clips (since v1.2.2beta)
    * save animated GIFs (interlaced/not interlaced)
    * save PNGs (interlaced/not interlaced)
    * save ICOs (true colour, 32 bit) (since v1.1.3)
    * save JPEGs of configurable quality (since v1.1.4)
    * read all image formats supported by Java
    * colour reduction, colour replacing, colour swapping
    * grayscaling (since v1.2.2beta)
    * image browser (since v1.3beta)
    * tolerant fill tool (since v1.3beta)
    * palette operations like editing RGB colours, alpha values
    * configuration of the Look&Feel to use (since v.1.1.3)

Really, it's a nice little tool. :)
Please help us to make JDraw really robust, bug free and useful, so try it out, test it and tell us about ideas for new features.
