    Microsoft Paint vs KolourPaint opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Microsoft Paint is still a legitimate alternative to KolourPaint, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

I already have Microsoft Paint on my computer, and the reason I came here was to look for something that can at least convert an image into greyscale while keeping a simple and intuitive interface.
