Multipaint: A New Graphics Editor for C64/ZX/MSX

Multipaint is a new, open-source, cross-platform pixel graphics editor, created by Tero Heikkinen aka DrTerrorZ. Inspired by Deluxe Paint from Amiga, Multipaint targets the ZX Spectrum, MSX-1, and C64 home computers. On the latter, both hi-res and multi-color modes are suppored.

Multipaint is written in Java and should run on all major OSes with a Java Runtime installed. More details, downloads, and the source code can be found on the project website.


  1. Thanks for the information. I needed something like that for a quick conversion of a picture into the spectrum format and it did the job!

    1. Glad you found it useful ;) For conversion to Spectrum format I actually prefer img2spec. It's very simple to use and has a lot of options regarding dithering and such. ( - the one from Silent Developement, that is. The one from Sol/HSA might be more powerful, but it's windows only).

  2. It's true img2spec has more options. I just couldn't remember its name! Anyway Multipaint was good enough, and I'd like to create a whole picture with it, in the future...
