GrafX2 - The Ultimate 256-color bitmap paint program
=== ABOUT ===
GrafX2 is a drawing program dedicated to pixelart and low-color graphics. This
program is dedicated to everybody who knows what a single pixel is. Its layout
is not very different from the famous Deluxe Paint or Brilliance, so it will be
quite easy to handle it if you know at least one of these programs. If you
aren't used to the art of drawing with up to 256 colors, it will be a little
more difficult for you, but you should give it a try (or more, because most of
the power of this program won't show up on the first try). Then, you might
eventually like to draw the oldskool way !
Grafx2 was originally written for the MS-DOS operating system. The authors then
released the sourcecode and we've modified it to run on your favorite platform
(if we missed it, please tell us !). Check the homepage at
http://pulkomandy.tk/projects/GrafX2 for latest news and bugfixed versions.
