Chasys Draw IES image suite

The Chasys Draw IES image suite is a completely free tool that competes with other popular and free image-editing tools such as Paint.NET and The GIMP. It consists of four components, the main being Chasys Draw Artist, a full image editor with powerful feature set. There’s also an image viewer (Chasys Draw Viewer), batch conversion tool (Chasys Draw Converter) and tool for processing RAW digital camera image files (Chasys Draw raw-Photo).

Chasys Draw Artist is a fully functional image editor, with a powerful set of features to rival both commercial and other free applications. It promises a radically different approach to image editing, and is also capable of creating images, icons, CD labels and other useful designs. The best way to explore the program is to create a copy of the chosen image and start working on it. Some niggles include: no option to adjust the size of the canvas, limitation of working on one image at a time, and 'un-smooth' interface. The 12.3 MB (zipped) Chasys Draw IES v3.61 for Windows 2000, Windows 7 (32 bit and 64 bit), Windows Server, Windows Vista (32 bit and 64 bit), Windows XP can be downloaded at
