    Image editors. Microsoft Paint good at anything?


    Hello. I been seeing lot's of cool customized images used in signatures. I tried myself to do one. But as you can see it shows clearly that i need more experience and maybe a better image editor. I used Microsoft Paint to do my signature image. What you guys using to do such cool images? Can Microsoft Paint do such art work?

    While I do absolutely no GFX here, I do create custom sigs for a lot of my fellow clan members. There are a lot of programs out there. Most of them are pretty expensive. To get a good, free start, try Gimp. GIMP - for Windows

    Or Inkscape, which is what i use. It's a vector program, so it'll be a bit different than what you're used to. But it's very powerful.

    hey nice sig, Florin - well done..!!

    Only time I use Paint is when I want to quickly resize a monster photo - some cameras take huge pictures..!!

    that's to make it fit into MicroSoft PhotoDraw V2 - sadly that prog is no longer available (MS discontinued it..)
    I still use it quite a bit, though - it came as part of MSOffice2000, it's still very versatile
    and it's so quick at picking up one format and saving it into another - y'know like jpg, gif, png - whatever..

    If I want to do finer stuff, I use the Corel suites CorelDrawX5 and Painter12, which are totally brilliant,
    but a bit over-the-top for your immediate needs - certainly more than a basic editor..

    Paint.net is pretty good. The Gimp is good. Both of those are free.

    Microsoft Paint can just do some simple image editing job.

    MSPaint artwork.

    Paint comes with the OS, and I love Win7's since it resizes stuff (handy, that, for all those rich text work emails). For the more complicated stuff there's GIMP.
