LazPaint is a free and open-source cross-platform lightweight image editor with raster and vectorial layers created with Lazarus. The software aims at being simpler than GIMP, is an alternative to Paint.NET and is also similar to Paintbrush.

Supported file types

  • layered files (lzp, ora, pdn, oXo, flat psd)
  • multi-images (gif, ico, tiff)
  • flat files (bmp, jpeg, pcx, png, tga, webp, xpm, xwd)
  • raw images (dng, cr2, nef, arw...)
  • vectorial (svg), 3D (obj)

Has drawing tools, vector shapes, phong shading, curve adjustments, filters, render some textures, Python scripting.


  • Many common actions can be done with the toolbar. Zoom can be changed with the magnifying glass (+ or -), or by clicking on the 1:1 button to show the image at its original size in pixels, or with the zoom fit button to set the zoom so that the whole image be within the window.
  • It is possible to undo/redo the 200 last operations. If you have a doubt on what you are drawing, undo back to the beginning, save a copy, and redo the modifications before going further. Image manipulation
  • An image can be resampled, flipped horizontally and vertically.
