OK I would hope that even Microsoft would agree that the MS-Paint program included with Windows is a lttle weak. And once you complain, people instantly say — you’ve got to purchase Photoshop! (As if there’s no middle ground!)
A client recently asked me if there was a program, better than MS-Paint, but not as confusing and expensive as Photoshop — so I installed the FREE Paint.NET program. My client could not have been happier.
This was a software project that began at the Washington State University, and has grown into a wonderful full-featured Photo/Paint application.
