It may be poor man's Photoshop, but GIMP casts a Long Shadow with latest update

Re: I miss Deluxe Paint

Just tried and it is easy.

Draw something.

Select an area using any of the select tools, area, rectangle, oval, etc.

On the Edit menu, select copy,

Click on the pencil/paint brush tool.

In the tool options, choose clipboard as brush

De-select the area, menu select choose none


* Bonus:, adjust size of the brush using the '[' and ']' keys (like photoshop)

Very easy to figure out and I never did it before. GIMP is soooo complicated.

PD: I also loved DPaint, Amiga Rulez!
