Lubuntu will best for you as it is lightest among the Ubuntu derivatives. You can use Xubuntu, if you want a bit more functionality than Lubuntu. If you want something visually appealing, then use Elementary OS, it looks a bit like OS X and is lighter than Unity.

You have answers for gimp, but I also find gimp a bit hard work for this sort of thing. I don't have windows so I don't know what its Paint is like, but I can recommend the very simple and old xpaint, the even simpler gnome version gpaint, or my favourite for over 10 years (and more sophisticated), xfig, all in ubuntu.


2

I have a simple solution: Select the Pencil tool Click on your image Press Shift and hold and press Ctrl and hold for the steps below Move your mouse and click Move and click again to complete your rectangle

Select the area you would like to outline with the rectangle select tool, go to Edit > Stroke Selection. You will get a dialogue. Choosing Solid Line will create an outline using the currently selected foreground color. Choosing With a Paint Tool will give you more creativity.


2

Create new layer. Rectangle select for outer wall of rectangle. Bucket fill that rectangle or paste a texture if you want to use a texture for your outline. Edit shrink selection by the width you want for your rectangle. Cut. Right click on the layer and merge the layer down.
