I tried GIMP some time ago. I did practis through a texture making tutorial.
At the end it is absolutly too complicate for me.
Paint.Net looks verry good. just toyed around a bit. This could be the missing programm
in the collectinon of Artweaver Texturemaker and Irfanview. It also demostrate the capabilitys of Mono where I am generally a bit sceptic about. I start looking for a Mac but only found another PC for Linux. Mono is for porting Hexdraw to Mac and other plattforms.

thanks for posting this Pelle

GIMP is a good and free bitmap editor. I've heard many good things about another free app called Paint.NET as well (nothing to do with the regular Paint that comes with Windows... luckily).

Robert , change the the Filtype of *.bmp
open an explorer, menue -> extra -> folder options, -> tab 'File Type' ,
searching BMP, button change-> select MS-Paint or other program. -> check always open with.
At bnow I use 'PC Image Editor' for this but it is not good with zooming

hope this helps

Robert, there's a little EDIT button at the bottom of the viewer that should open Paint for you.

When I try to edit an overlay, the Image viewer is opened, instead of Paint or something else useful. What can I do about that?

thanks verry much for your picture Robert

In case of an overlay or text, try out right clicking on the rotation bar several times.

Enrico , I am alo not an proffesional artist and this programm is dedicated to people like me and you :-)
There is a manual.pdf ! I please you to read the few pages, cause there are some not so obviously things.
Use Texturemaker for the Pattern. Save it to the texture folder and load it to a new terrain.
Artweaver is usefull for coloring buildings or the gullys in the image above.

Another question Jo (I am not a graphic professional :-)
You told upon the use of Artweaver software. What I must do exactly to organize a self-made pattern in AW and save it for Hexdraw?

If you like to have the woods in an other color, recolor a copy of the woods.png.
As you will change nearly any terrain, I like to recomend to choose the open ground color or texture first. because all other terrain will depend on. I am verry courios on seeing pictures of that, cause at now I have not seen anything not drawn by myself :-)
