Paint.NET is getting noticed!

Recommended Posts

With good reason. Red Eye Removal in Paint.NET isn't very good.

Anyway who cares, they're pimping Paint.NET to a huge audience, which I'm fine with.

It has happened again, Paint.NET has been slashdoted'

http://developers.slashdot.org/article. ... reshold=-1

This article has been written with a emphasis on Rick's "Backspaceware" issues recently.

Congrats Rick!

Why not fix it then?

That's what I was thinking. But as I said in another thread...

"Every time someone says "that can't be hard," Rick sighs, rolls his eyes, and wonders why he didn't become a doctor like his mom wanted him to. :-)"

In CorelDRAW, red eye removal is a tool, not an effect. All you have to do it click on the tool then click on the eye. It is all automatic after that. Works really good, too.

Yea, I also heard that it got #19 on the top 100 best computer products of 2007!
Really?! Rick should mention that somewhere...

This is where you say 'oh, wait, I was talking of another award given to Paint.NET, so, you're wrong'.

Y'know, I use StumbleUpon, and one of my registered interests is freeware. I frequently stumble upon lists of freeware apps for all sorts of uses, including image utilities. Paint.NET is frequently on on these lists, and if it isn't, I give the site a Thumbs Down, if it is, Thumbs Up. Just doin' my part. 8)

Not really an article or review per se, but this topic from the MediaMonkey forums is attracting some nice attention... and new users.

MediaMonkey, as you may guess from the name, is a media player built for the Windows platform. Well, I say 'media player', but really it's only a music player/library, though you won't see me complaining.

Unlike most free image editors, Paint.NET supports layers and has an actions manager.
Is this a shout out to pyro's ScriptLab?

No, they're just referring to the History window.
Hmm, IMHO, neither ScriptLab nor the History window can be classified as an "Actions manager." I think maybe whoever wrote that is slightly delusional...

Oh well. It's good press in any event.
