Pinta
Edit your image in the cross platform image tool Pinta

Paint.NET is a powerful image editing package originally created by the team involved in the development of Windows' Paint tool. Despite these humble beginnings, Paint.NET has gained something of a following, and Pinta is another image manipulation program based on Paint.NET.

The application has been designed with a range of levels of ability in mind. Experienced user will be able to jump right in and start using some of the more advanced tools, but the learning curve for beginners is gentle and intuitive.

As with Paint.NET, users are encouraged to experiment with their creativity, and this is made possible thanks to the inclusion of an unlimited level of undoing, as well as the ability to work with an unlimited number of layers. This, combined with dozen of built in special effects and filters, means that it is possible to create impressive works of art from scratch, or work with existing images such as photos.

All of the basic drawing and editing tools you would expect to find in a mature image editing package are to be found here, and when it comes to interface customisation, Pinta is incredibly flexible. Each of the various toolbar, windows and panels can be placed almost anywhere within the program window, or transformed into a floating window. Anyone who regularly works with different platforms will appreciate the fact that Pinta is available not only for Windows, but also Linux and Mac.

Please note, Mac users will need to download and install a copy of Mono (http://www.go-mono.com/mono-downloads/download.html), while Windows users will need to install Gtk# (http://ftp.novell.com/pub/mono/gtk-sharp/gtk-sharp-2.12.9-2.win32.msi) in order to use Pinta.

Verdict:

A powerful and flexible image editor that rivals many commercial tools. Well worth checking out.

Mac version isn't signed

Ugh. The Mac version isn't signed, so I can't install it on my work computer.

Total crapware

After installing GTK# and then Pinta this software crashes every time I try to start it. I get Visual Basic runtime errors even though it is properly installed on my XP machine. DO NO even bother with Pinta, it is a total waste of time.

Pinta does not run under Windows 8 CP

It installs, but does not run. When you try to run it, nothing happens! It just closes before it opens.

Eduardo, I don't think many apps are Windows 8 friendly yet :)

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
