The last time I reviewed this was in 2006. Now that I'm a little more advanced in my graphic art, and photo edits I've out grown MS 'pain' and Photofiltre. I just didn't want to learn a new program was all. Update: This isn't that hard to use after all. Instead of trying to use the (weird) erase tool to clean up images use the fuzzy select toon and for totally clean up the rectangle select tool then right click > edit > cut to clean off say pixilated junk. I frekn' HATE MS paint in windows 8 now. I save a nice clean image that I just made come back to it later to find that the quality has been reduced, and it's pixilated) The ordinal MS paint never did that, and would save images as a bmp image nice and clean. Not any more. I have yet to figure out how to get this program to save my files as a bmp image. I'll come back later with a new review when I do. Also, I was excited to find that it has a smudge tool.
It has many functions and it's free, but it isn't for occasionally editing.
Needs to read help also to draw a simple line and a learning period for more complex action.
Over the years, I've downloaded Gimp to see if I can use it but I've always been put off by the interface with the floating tools. Why won't you lock them for god's sake? It's so unusuable as all the separate windows get in the way of each other. It looks like the first ever attempt at making a graphics program. I'm sure it functions well enough but sort it out!!!
