Is there a Paint.NET alternative?

I want to crop, maybie highlight some of the picture and be able to save in jpg. I want a program that is easy to use. I tried Gimp but it was way hard to use.

My question is are there any easy to use image editing programs.

I dont want

A Ubuntu replica of the windows paint. Or something that looks like it came from windows. Or something that is made for kids.

I want a real program!

Pinta Install pinta

im1

It's description seems to match your desires ;-)

Pinta is a drawing/editing program modeled on Paint.NET. Its goal is to provide a simplified alternative to the GIMP for casual users.

Features include:

Adjustments (Auto level, Black and White, Sepia, …) Multiple layers Unlimited undo/redo Drawing tools (Paintbrush, Pencil, Shapes, …)

It's in USC too so a mere sudo apt-get install pinta works too.

Well a program that can use layers isn't a simple easy to use program, I'm trying "shutter" now... –  Alvar May 21 '11 at 13:52
    
+1. first thing that came to my mind as I read this question :) –  Vicky Chijwani May 21 '11 at 14:21
    
Yeah shutter. That was my first choice too. –  David Rando May 21 '11 at 15:15
    
Shutter is actually very easy to use, the screenshot isn't that create, I thought it would be more like gimp. –  Alvar May 21 '11 at 18:43

@Alvar: you did not add that requirement in first instance. This is a real program, I can open it and view its source. –  Lekensteyn May 21 '11 at 19:01
    
It looks like paint in windows! :( –  Alvar May 21 '11 at 21:03

@Alvar: you must have had a very bad experience. Anyway, look forward, leave history behind you. –  Lekensteyn May 21 '11 at 21:50
    
paint isn't that bad if you copy-paste a screenshot, but if you draw, then it's just huge pixels. –  Alvar May 27 '12 at 13:41
