I started using Piskel, but it doesn't save to .bmp files.... can anyone help? (also MS Paint doesn't work)
sorry that i didn't look through the whole sub-section to find something similar, but there are 36 pages and I have time restrictions.

I tend to use Macromedia Fireworks MX 2004, but it isn't free software.

I am partial to FireAlpaca. It has a pixel brush and some limited animation tools.

Always used MS paint. It's the simplest one I used so far.

Graphics Gale is my preferred sprite editor.

You could just use MS Paint and change the file type to .bmp, that's how I do it.

The same can be done in Booster's Lab, which automatically does for you if you open a fresh Cave Story file with it. Then all you have to do is save it, close Booster's Lab, and edit it with whichever photo editing software you want (preferably any of the recommended programs here).
