Why can't Lasso do true freeform/freehand

Recommended Posts


I found a video on the web which shows an older paint.net version using the Lasso the way I expected.. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=4&sqi=2&ved=0CCAQtwIwAw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D2CX7PJnNSyk&ei=na4vTcyOAZDEgAfy_sVa&usg=AFQjCNFpTTFYKsaiF4UmLBedLGXEfrknMA

that is they show the lasso tool manually drawing a line around an object and then connecting it at the ends (Just like MS Paint). But in the latest version of paint.net, its automatically a free form polygon - I can't connect it because its already connected to itself. Basically, its like the square or elliptical selection but a bit more freeform. All I want to do is manually draw a selection.

Do I need a plugin or something?

Thanks in advance.
