I personally haven't tried Tux Paint but it looks to be a simple well thought out graphics package.

Just gave it a test run. A fun little program, easy to use,lots of predefined brushes, even speaks my native tongue (Danish). Guess it would be OK for simple drawing tasks, especially if you had a digitizer (don't know if it is supported?). The pictures, however, can't be saved or exported - they are  stored within the program (I have looked through the different tuxpaint folders, but can't seem to find them). According to the readme.txt this is supposed to be this way, so that kids, using the program, won't be able to screw up the computer  Cheesy

I rate this program "Excellent" for the sake of my 5-yr-old daughter. This is her favorite program.

It's also teaching her some basic graphics skills, and more recently she's expressed an interest in learning how to use Inkscape, though it's still a little beyond her.

BTW, abmman, TuxPaint saves in PNG format in your ~/.tuxpaint directory. That's where you can find the images.
