My Verdict For LittlePainter:

LittlePainter is a free open-source painting software that provides you a clean and simple interface to paint conveniently. The insert text option is nonfunctional and no cropping feature is available. However, these limitations are quite trivial, and frankly I just love the rainbow option that it provides.
