Hunting, as in I'm looking for some. But okay, I need new/extra media for editing photo and editing video. I recently did a clean install on Windows 7, and much of my software (right word?) was gone and I had to get it back. Some of them, however, either I tried and something happened, or I may need clearification on the right place to get it. Here's my situation:
I originally had Paint.NET before the clean install, and did dl the .exe afterwards, but I didn't install it, and I did a Malwarebytes scan that said that the .exe of Paint.NET was maybe, or maybe not, a rogue, but something for this scan to call it bad, and got rid of it. I do have Gimp 2.8, which is great, but doesn't have certain things that Paint.NET had. Examples include being able to manually rotate the picture (not 90 degrees, or 180, but in between them to whatever you like them to be), and its own select tool that selects that part of the picture, not the whole picture, or the whole part, if that makes sense. Basically, because I liked both Gimp and Paint.NET, I'm looking for another Paint.NET to replace...the Paint.NET. Now, if that .exe of Paint.NET was infected, and isn't a virus carrying app to begin with, please let me know and show me a link so I dl the right one. But if it is, is there something out there just as good if not better than Paint.NET that I can get?
Before, I had Windows Movie Maker, normally for XP and Vista. Regardless of the flaws and mixed reviews, I really liked it and really could use it again. I know there is a Windows Live version, but I can't understand why people would prefer that over the other one. Anytime I tried the Live ver., I couldn't do certain things like inserting a clip between two other clips (and if that can do that, please tell me and I'll re-dl it and try again) But I want to re-dl Movie Maker for XP (that should still work on Windows 7 like before, right?) but again, like the photo editing above, is there a better version that I can get?
If someone, maybe a group of people, that can offer me ideas, great!
PS I'm referring to free software you can get online, not really things you have to buy. Just to be clear.
