Rendera 1.7 Painting App released

Rendera 1.7 recently released, is an open-source painting program. It was primarily designed with photo restoration in mind, but is also useful as a general painting application. The tools, shapes, blending modes, edge-wrapping, and cloning may all be combined to suit a particular need. Brushstrokes are rendered after being drawn, allowing for slower, non-realtime calculations to be applied without interfering with the mouse or tablet response.
