Tux Paint is an attractive drawing package for students and it runs on a variety of platforms. It is easy to use with other programs such as Photostory and Voicethread as the files save automatically with the PNG format.
The folder where you save files can be altered using the graphical interface supplied with the download which is excellent! The network administrator can nominate the folder where the drawings save. And the automatic save feature means that even the most inexperienced students can create and keep their drawings.
Tux Paint has all the features you would expect of a drawing program and some unique ones too.
This is a delightful piece of software! Students from Prep to grade 6 love it.
