Help for Paint.NET etc, please
Well, I've looked right through this forum for information about Paint.NET, and I've found nothing.
If anyone is familiar with it I'd like to get some idea of what it can/cannot do.
Also, assuming it does what I want, I'd appreciate it if someone could provide me with a link/zipfile for a version 2.7 or earlier, cos the current version won't talk to anything prior to XP. :(
It's a free program so there shouldn't be any copyright issues with a zip.
Currently, I'm using MS Paint, but I've been outgrowing it for a while. I need a bit more functionality, but I really don't have time to learn the big programs.
Mainly, I want to create some tiles and objects with transparent backgrounds, cutting and pasting from drawings, photographs etc. Nothing very complex, but a bit more than MS Paint can handle.
If there are any alternatives that are One Small Step up from MSP I'd be pleased to hear about them, too.
Xara is very easy to learn!
Select the app that's best for you, but as Ascension says, I swear by Xara. Where did you here it was complex - I taught me nephews how to use in one afternoon, just an hour or so, it they are 8 and 10 years old. Its very easy to learn and use, believe me.

Only if you want to try!
