EZ Paint is a free alternative program to MS Paint for your Windows Vista, 7 or 8 OS that has many of the same shortcuts and features. Developed as an easy to use aid for creating illustrations, EZ Paint also touts many features not available in MS Paint which are crucial to web page design such as the use of gradients and the editing of .png and .gif files which contain transparencies. EZ Paint has over 50 different textures which can be combined with different colored backdrops. The program also has over 30 custom built-in shapes which can be edited and saved as a custom polygon or shape file. Not to mention all the line, arc, arch, and curve editing tools it also provides. EZ Paint picks up where MS Paint leaves off providing much expanded features in graphic design and editing while retaining a fairly comfortable easy level of use. EZ paint is aimed at casual users of MS Paint that are looking for a more powerful graphics program with the same look and feel of MS Paint.
