GSoC: Tux Paint ‘Magic Tools’

Tux Paint is a small but powerful and efficient Painting Application for children. We can create pictures in Tux Paint using the Built in tools like Paint Brush, Stamps and add extra effect to them using the ‘Magic Tools’.

This project deals with the creation of extra ‘Magic Tools’ for Tux Paint using the new Magic Tool plugin API by Bill Kendrick. This makes use of the Simple Direct Media Layer (SDL). The main aim of this work is to make the children available with new tools and providing them a platform to extend their creative ideas.

The aim is to create some tools that will provide some additional effects to the images. This includes a Rain plugin which is more like the Grass tool provided with Tux Paint, gives a rainy effect to the image. Another intended plugin is a Scratch plugin that will provide an effect such that the entire canvas looks scratched.
