Similar to Windows Paint with fewer tricks, this application is a decent piece of freeware if you’re simply looking to dabble. The main program window of Brush Strokes Image Editor is an empty palette, so to speak; it’s not crowded with the toolboxes often seen in design programs. Most program functions are found underneath the main menu as one-touch buttons. Though we liked this organization, it requires a bit of research to figure out which button does what (no alt-text appears when you move your cursor over a button, as is the case with other popular applications). Most traditional editing options, such as color and brightness adjustments or image rotation, are offered, yet we couldn’t find an option for sharpening or cropping an image. Overall, Brush Strokes Image Editor isn’t the most robust image editor out there, but as freeware it’s useful if you’d rather use a tool other than a standard Windows Paint editor.
