    I created a small paint program for my nephews Shawn and Iben. You can paint using different brush sizes and colors, and clear the painting. No advanced features, no saving and loading files, just painting. Version 1.0.1: fixed some bugs, and replaced the UpDownControl with a custom control for changing the brush size.

    TabletPC/Ink support?

    It's not a full-fledged painting application. It's just something I wrote Saturday in about an hour or two. It's for my 2 nephews (3 and 4 years old), so I just implemented the functionality THEY need. I wouldn't really trust them with a TabletPC. I've noticed they have problems with using a mouse (too big for their little hands), but they really enjoy painting with the pen of my Wacom tablet. EDIT: You have the source code, so you could add support for TabletPC yourself. Don't you love open-source Wink ?

    I just released a small update. Some bugs were fixed, and I replaced the UpDownControl with a custom control for changing the brush size.

    The application was built for small children that just want to paint, so it does not contain any advanced features. You can also find another tool I created to save screenshots: Screen Capture.
