[PyQt] image tool like paint

It is relatively easy. You need a QWidget-detived widget that will collect mouse up/down events and store pixel data. Color is set by setting a pen via a toolbar. After that you can incorporate zoom/scaling and additional tools.

Some of the questions though are do you want it to be raster (as above) or vector, like Inkscape? Vector is a little more tricky, but the same basic concept.

Good Luck!
