A modern paint package

MiltonLogo

Milton is an open source application that lets you Just Paint.

There are no pixels, you can paint with (almost) infinite detail. It feels raster-based but it works with vectors. It is not an image editor. It is not a vector graphics editor. It is a program that lets you draw, sketch and paint. There is no save button, your work is persistent with unlimited undo.

What Milton is not:

Milton is not an image editor or a vector graphics editor. It’s a program that lets you draw, sketch and paint.

User Manual

If the GUI makes something not-obvious, please create a github issue!

It’s very helpful to drag the mouse (or pen) while pressing space to pan the canvas. Also, switching between the brush and the eraser with b and e. You can change the brush size with [ and ] and control the transparency with the number keys.

Here is the latest video tutorial

Check out the patreon page if you would like to help out. :)

Milton is Windows only at the moment. Linux and OSX support is intended for the future, but I don’t know when that will come.

How to Compile

Windows

Requirements: VS2015. If you have another version, edit scripts\vcvars.bat to point to your Visual Studio path. (2010 == 10.0, 2012 == 11.0, 2013 == 12.0, 2015 == 14.0)

Run cmd.exe and type the following

scripts\vcvars.bat
build.bat

Milton will be compiled to build\Milton.exe

Linux

No linux support at the moment.

OSX

No OSX support at the moment.
