Hello Pilliboy12,

I do not think that you can use Windows 7 Paint in XP, but these are some great free ones that you can use in XP instead if you like.

Paint.NET - Free Software for Digital Photo Editing

or

IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

Hope this helps,
Shawn

There is a great little PhotoShop clone called introducing Pixia that you can take a look at too - 100% free, and works well.

The Gimp is also one of hte more popular ones, although Paint.NET is growing a fanbase really quickly....

You can use paintribbon, its a paint application for XP and Vista which has the ribbon and is made to look like the Windows 7 Paint

the idea is to have windows seven's paint in xp, if it won't work then maybe something that works just like it and resembles it would be ok?

@swarfega, pixia crashes in W7? but pilliaboy12 wants to use something in xp, maybe it works in xp.

@pilliaboy12, have u tried any of the programs suggested? pls help everyone by giving some feedback.
