I should have known better than to abbreviate a word when communicating
with a school teacher.  Sorry.  ;-)

Since everywhere I work seems to have an internet connection, but doesn't
always have GIMP or Photoshop, or admin rights to install software, in a

SumoPaint.  I love GIMP, but sometimes other options are good to have too.
