PaintTool SAI is a paint tool for Windows PCs that lets users harness their creative side.

Basic image editing tools

If you've ever wished you could spice up some of your photography or digital artwork, you'll want to take a look at a paint program to do it.

PaintTool SAI is one of your options, and it's a good one in many respects. It contains the basic tools you'd expect to find in a paint program, such as airbrushes, a paintbrush, watercolors, pencils and an eraser. You can flip, rotate, zoom and alter the colors, saturation and hue.

In addition, PaintTool SAI has some slightly more advanced features, such as layers and canvases, that can really add depth and neat effects to your graphics.

Simple interface and navigation

The program has a simple interface that's easy to navigate. While PaintTool SAI's interface is simple to navigate, learning all of the paint program's features will take some time, as with almost any graphics editing program out there.

The simple interface is also quite plain and looks old fashioned, which might put off potential users who would prefer a little more panache in their paint program.

Does what it says on the tin

Overall, PaintTool SAI is a competent tool that lets you edit and enhance photographs and other graphic images.

PaintTool SAI supports the following formats

    "It's pretty good but confusing."

    It's pretty good. It's just a bit confusing at first. I like drawing and painting and that stuff, so I like it. More.
