Paint Tool SAI is a small but highly advanced raster graphics editor and painting application for all modern versions of Windows OS. Originally released to the public in 2008, this highly regarded digital art software has received numerous upgrades over the years, making it one of the best lightweight apps for easy, stable, comfortable, and enjoyable drawing on the PC platform. Because of its slim hardware requirements, it remains one of the most popular digital painting software for older and weaker PCs, especially those who are still running old versions of Windows such as Windows XP and 2000.
