For me I use paint.net. Also I am aware of Gimp too but I find paint.net to be easier to use.

Kolourpaint.

No layers, so there's a lot of copypasting into extra whitespace.

Paint Shop Pro ver 7.04 - the last version before Jasc was bought over and PSP became a bloated mess. It is getting a little long in the tooth now, so it lacks some features that you might expect in modern software, but I still find it an excellent, well-featured, quick and easy tool to use for the kind of graphics editing needed for Doom.

I miss my copy of PSP, which I lost during my last hardware upgrade.

Now it's primarily GIMP. I occasionally try other programs, but my workflow has matured so much that the sprite-centric features other solutions offer don't really give me that needed bump in productivity. Plus with the right settings, GIMP is actually very good for spritework. I'd wager I could make it even better with plugins, but I've never taken the time to look for things like onionskinning.

I'm not a major sprite maker, but when I did minor edits for any of my maps, I just use Photoshop. Zoom in enough and it's pixel by pixel with a grid. lol

Blender + Photoshop. Krita is an alright free PS alternative. Better than GIMP by a mile imo.

Microsoft Paint for pixeling, and Paint.NET for anything else.

Aseprite is extremely worth the money. Krita is also very useful if you need Photoshop like functionality but can't wrap your head around GIMP.
