    Paint.NET

    is image and photo manipulation software designed to be used on computers that run Windows XP or 2000. Paint.NET is jointly developed at Washington State University with additional help from Microsoft, and is meant to be a free replacement for the MS Paint software that comes with all Windows operating systems

    The programming language used to create Paint.NET is C#, with GDI+ extensions.

    Paint.NET has many of the powerful features that expensive commercial applications have, including the ability to use layers.

    This is the second semester that Paint.NET has been a project at Washington State University, and we have the goal of adding as much functionality as expensive commercial applications provide, but of course, for free!

    You can find it here

    Well I had a look and had to Download a 24 mb file from MS just to get the thing running.

    But I removed the whole package after trying it. it still needs lots of development in my eyes.

    But for free its ok.

    aah you're talking about .net framework from MS. Most peeps involved with creating graphics for games and websites need it. Other apps also use it.

    Which paint prog tho? Gimp or paint.net?
