HP Touchsmart Compatible with Paint.NET

Recommended Posts

If it runs Windows then it'll work. But Paint.NET doesn't take advantage of any touch input stuff.

It'll probably just simulate touch input as mouse input.

That is essentially correct. The screen becomes an input device just like a standard (Windows-based) tablet. So the only difference you should encounter is the change in conventions used for menu selections and such. We utilize from time to time a Windows-based tablet at work. There is a tutorial that is part of the OS (Windows XP Tablet) which will guide you through the overall use of tablets.

If you have not yet purchased the unit and are inquiring here before you make your purchase, you may ask the retailer if such a tutorial exists on it as well. As I understand it, Windows 7 has built-in tablet support, but I do not know if when tablet capabilities are enabled, whether a tutorial or help file is available.

Paint.NET is working fine on a HP TouchSmart tm2 (Win7) (rotatable display).

Sometimes I'm using this laptop in tablet mode to do freehand sketches.

The pen is supported and allows to draw using the foreground or background color.

A plugin allows me to straighten the sketches (not public in the moment because it is optimized to my workflow and I'm not sure that others are able to handle it ;-)

Some time ago I provided an add-on for the touchpad which allows to use some gestures in Paint.NET.
