Default Which painting apps can export transparent backgrounds

I tried drawings sprites on sketchbook, but it exports with a solid background , which means sprites will have a white box around them. Which apps will export with transparency aka. Alpha channel?

Paper by 53 but it's not really for sprites.

You could continue to export using your existing package but wherever you want transparent you set it to a particular colour (eg hot pink). You can then use MS Photo editor to mark your chosen colour as transparent. In the past I have used MS Paint and MS Photo Editor to make sprites. It's rather primitive but at least uses stuff you have pre-installed in Windows.
