I am looking for a good pain program to replace MS Paint that is as small and as simple to use as MS Paint but with some more advanced features not fond in Paint. Mostly creating transparent GIF and PNG files and some beter image resize options.

I dont do any complicated or advanced image editing so proffesinal programs such as Paintshop Pro and Photoshop are both not required and a waste of money.

Anyone know anything good out there?

How about The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program)?
It's powerful, but loads fast, and it's open-source, so you don't pay anything.

I used to really like Paintshop Pro up until version 7, 6 was very simple to use, tho sadly not free.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
