If you still use MS Paint for graphical work, first of all, I pity you…  Secondly, you most definitely should check out this application – Paint.NET:
 
 
What is it?  Well it’s basically a free program originally designed to "replace" MS Paint.  However, unlike MS Paint, this image manipulation application also includes various features you will find in a full-on graphics editor (like Photoshop, GIMP etc…) – such as layers, undo, effects (Hum… Gaussian blur – for shadow (link) ) etc…
 
So if you are looking for something "light" and quick to edit your images, it’s worth giving this application a try – I found out how useful it is when I need to edit screenshots, for example, this screenshot:
