  1. I can think of some ways to improve this: 1. Ignore paint.net's restrictive rules of the palette system, namely the 96 color limit. Instead, allow reading more colors from the .txt file; for example, if the .txt file contains 256 lines, it should read 256 colors from it. 2. When there are fewer than 96 lines in the .txt palette file, the plugin adds white to remaining entries. This can produce unexpected results when the .txt palette file has no white. It should treat this .txt palette file as if it actually had fewer colors. 3. What formula do you use for t
  2. Apparently Microsoft is nice to me, at least at some point in time. The Paint in XP is the best to me, but the XP itself was bad. Windows 7 was even worse, so glad I have Windows 10. I'm using Paint in XP when I want to draw a png picture. Don't ask me why, these are my opinions.
  3. That's right, I prefer Paint. The only reason I still have paint.net is because of its circle tool, generating identical results as my implementation: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/137683607/ but in an image. Why this circle tool is special? It's because it correctly includes pixels inside a radius, and excludes pixels outside a radius. My implementation allows players to adjust radius (0 to 10 tolerance is -0.5 to 0.5 radius).
  4. " If the color box was made like that, it might be to have more space for the canvas. So, doing it like the way you've demonstrated may clutter the workspace. " No. The third window of what it should look like is an extra feature that allows people to have custom palettes, with custom sizes. This image demonstrates 18x16 setting for large palette. I use Windows 10. The Paint in XP is simply an .exe file that can run on Windows 10. The reason I don't like Paint in 7 is that it has a different palette. No! The eraser from Paint will not confuse beginners. In fact, it
  5. How is my color scheme weird? What do you mean by "controls"? On a red paper, erasers turn pencil drawings red. They don't somehow remove the red color of paper. Please allow erasers to be what they were in Paint, and not remove the "any color feature" and square color, and snapping to grid lines with eraser. Also note that this topic was posted on edge of my sleeping time. Here is the continuation: 4. There are no convenient resizing. Paint had only three (bottom, bottom right, right) but it's better than nothing. 5. Both programs have issue that the s
  6. Paint in XP is just a lot better than paint.net. 1. New image is always in 800x600, and to make matters worse, in 99% size. In Paint, it was in last set size. 2. Eraser is always transparent. In Paint, you can select any background color to erase, and the eraser is square. Eraser in Paint is a convenient option to both enlarge drawing size and use background color instead of text color. Right-clicking with eraser in Paint will replace text color with background color. 3. Paint.net shows the color circle behind the "More >>", and no RGB sliders or text boxes. That is
  7. My gimp plugin for scaling algorithms: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2gmgp2tair3r2wa/scale2x.py?dl=0 Download gimp, then move the plugin to C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\plugins. The xBR implementations are no-blend. Image you should use: Results: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/2jybtkqvktz7fgy/AABp_lpsc-g0shkYDhimuxura?dl=0 Note: xBR implementations have the difference functions replaced by equality. One part of xBR picks a pixel with least difference from original (which is used in the enlarged pixel) and I couldn't reproduce it. I added edge detection to fix it.
