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 :)

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
