GraphiQL is a bitmap drawing program produced by Talent Computer Systems which was controlled by a set of keyboard commands. A later version, controlled by icons was released under the Sinclair Research Limited label as QL Paint and later under Talent's own label as GraphiQL+

Quite a neat utility, this provides the most common commands you require and handles both 4 and 8 colour screen modes, allowing you to access the full 512x256 screen. Files are output as full 32768 byte screen dumps. This is one of the few drawing programs which allows you to set the flash attribute on each pixel, and includes the following features:

  • Freehand drawing, 8 colours, optional flash
  • Rubber banding, rubber boxes, circles and elipses
