I just installed Paint.net 2.5 after reading an article in magazine Clickx about the program.

It looks like a famous program.

The first thing I did after opening the program was searching for an iside browser, but I didn't find it.

Is there a browser inside?

I miss such a facility because I like often to switch from one directory to an other. F.e. to copy or move images.

Like I wrote: "F.e. to copy or move images".

It seems for me easier to scroll in an inside browser to open images files based on a view with thumbnails in a specific directory.

It should be also a facility to create new or rename directories where you can copy or move certain images.

An overview with thumbnails is a great comfort f.e. to rename some images.

A lot of programs own such a browser of directories with thumbnails like f.e. Xnview, Paint Shop Pro, PhotoFiltre.

At least: "Paint.NET is image and photo manipulation software" like is written in the Overview of the Help function.

Thanks for your answer.

I think they were talking about a file tree. Like the "Explorer Bar -> Folders" option in Windows Explorer. That way, you could open up new files without leaving the main UI window.

But I don't see this as being too feasible until MDI is implemented.

As for the 'folder browser' functionality... I'd say Windows handles that pretty well and there's no need for us to do a mimic of it. Microsoft has paid a lot of engineers a lot of money to develop that already!

As for tabs / multiple-document-interface ... yes, we're doing that for a future release.
