sfalken Posted March 17, 2011 Share Posted March 17, 2011 (edited) All, I'm really trying not to be too negative in my career as a Luddite, but it's hard not to cave in. Here's what I mean: after wiping my main workstation's hard drive due to a very new and very nasty rootkit virus, I decided to take the plunge and install a 64-bit OS for the first time. You can imagine how lost I felt when I discovered I could not use Paint Shop Pro 4.14 anymore - I'd been using it since 1997. It's been my Notepad for images, and I'm sure nothing else is going to be exactly the same - which is what I want, admittedly unrealistically. So I ended up trying Paint.Net, and it seems pretty close, but my biggest bitch is the damned tools not being toolbar-able. At least they follow the window, which is a small step toward sanity, but the fact they each have to sit there as their own window is really distracting. I see by forum posts that this is a frequent complaint as well, so it's not just me. Multiple windowed images open at one time is also an important feature; I don't want to have to go up top and click to another image: +1 MDI child canvas. Please know I write software for a living myself, so I can already hear how annoying these compaints sound to the developers - just my two cents. -------------------------------- So all that having been said, has anyone written plugins for this stuff? I doubt it due to the nature of the issues, but I thought I'd ask. SO if anyone has any suggestions, it would be appreciated. -------------------------------- BTW, I'd be totally cool with paying for an image program that had the features above; you have a good thing going Rick. Thanks, sF Edited March 17, 2011 by sfalken Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
