Ultimate Paint is a compact, fully functional graphics editor.

I downloaded and installed Ultimate Paint, thinking that any graphics editor which only consumed 4 MB of hard drive space couldn't have all the functions of those which consume nearly 25 times that amount of space. Naturally, the program proved me wrong!

Ultimate Paint has most of the features of the more expensive, space intensive programs, like Paint Shop Pro or PhotoShop, at a fraction of the cost. You can even use third party filters and plug-ins (like Flaming Pear's Blade Pro, Super Blade Pro, Alien Skin's Eye Candy, Xenofex, etc.) with Ultimate Paint (just like those other graphics editors!). If you're a beginner thinking of learning graphic art, but don't want to invest heavily in the "big boys", Ultimate Paint is perfect! Or if you, like me, have an older computer with a small hard drive and are very concerned with program size, Ultimate Paint is a godsend.

The shareware version of Ultimate Paint is fully functional for 30 uses. After that, you'll have to purchase a license. I am incredibly impressed with Ultimate Paint and heartily recommend it!
