Paint.NET is getting noticed!


Recommended Posts

The off topic stuff is why we have the , guys. :-) Thanks.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

The guy in the keynote says that if you use the Common File Dialog in Vista, which Paint.NET uses, you get all the benefits of the new Windows APIs automagically.

Now, topic closed, sorry, David.

No. Way. I've just seen Bob. And... *poof!*—just like that—he disappears into the mist again. ~Helio

Possibly un-install and the like.

Not likely, seeing as that is not in the general program list (see 'All Programs' below). My guess would be a list of recent files access by the program.

This is not a troubleshooting thread. Stay on topic.

Popular Science Magazine Recently ran an article on their website about open source alternatives to Photoshop CS2 and Paint Shop Pro X. Although Gimp and Gimpshop kinda stole the spotlight in the article, a link was provided for Open Source Alternative ("A quick online guide to the best open source software.") where Paint.NET is duly listed as a viable alternative to the afore mentioned heavy hitters.

Yeah i have gimp and i really dont like it at all Paint.net has a much better interface and as far as i know gimp has no... plugin style features more like paint with magic wand^^

Paint.net will be one of the top discussed...has many of the powerful features including the ability to use layers.

found one at http://lifehacker.com/5077690/get-windows-7s-best-features-right-now

I was looking @ Windows 7 stuff and found Paint.NET in this paragraph.

Upgrade Calculator and Paint; Get PowerShell

Windows 7 brings with it a few key upgrades to the ancillary programs it bundles, like Calculator, Paint, and WordPad. While you can't get the new Office 2007 ribbon in your WordPad right now, if you're a Paint user do consider upgrading to the free Paint.NET, which supports layers, multiple open images, and much more than regular Paint ever dreamed. To get you some powered-up Calculator action, XP users can install Power Calculator, and Vista users can don their eye patch and try getting this version of the Win7 Calculator to run on their system. Finally, Windows 7 comes with PowerShell pre-installed, but you can download and install PowerShell yourself right here.
