Microsoft Paint Alternatives with feature 'Support for Layers'

    Being bundled with every version of Windows in recent memory, Paint is a basic option, but its tools are usually enough to get the job done, so long as that job is basic image and graphics editing.

    There are plenty of free options available across every major operating system and device form factor that offer more feature-rich experiences, such as layer support and support for extensions and plugins.

      LazPaint vs Microsoft Paint opinions
      Almost everyone thinks LazPaint is a great alternative to Microsoft Paint.
      Really lightweight and fast, has a lot of additional features but is neat, making it powerful but not complicated (looking at you, Gimp). It would count closer to a Paint.NET replacement in my opinion. Though if you have this why would you ever want a normal MS Paint clone?
