Xpaint is a color image editing tool which features most standard paint program options. It allows for the editing of multiple images simultaneously and supports various formats, including PPM, XBM, TIFF, etc.


XPaint was originally written by David Koblas. The last version he released was 2.1.1.

In 1995, I picked up XPaint, fixed a few bugs, added some bugs of my own, and threw in some new features. This resulted in the versions 2.2 through 2.5.7.

For several years, not much happened due to lack of time.

Then, in 1999, I was approached by Jean-Pierre Demailly, who had implemented some new features. The next few releases (2.5.8 through 2.6.2) were mainly Jean-Pierre's product.

In 2002 I decided that the time was ripe to put XPaint on SourceForge.


If you need a more sophisticated paint program, I recommend The GIMP.
