    How to disable Paint's brush tool anti aliasing?


    In Windows 7 the brush tool in Paint has an anti aliasing feature, which makes the paintbucket tool not work as it should. It's hard to explain so here's a screenshot - the shape is not properly filled:

    How do I disable the anti aliasing just in Paint without disabling things like ClearType or whatever (which doesn't solve the problem anyway)?

    Sorry, you can't. It was an option when 7 was in beta, but removed in the final. If you have Vista, or have access, you can use that version of Paint on 7

    Have you tried an alternative, like Paint.net?

    I use Paint.net and Photoshop CS3 but most of the time MS Paint is perfectly satisfactory for what I need at the current moment, unfortunately it has the AA "feature"

    Yeah, many people complained about it. Hard to do pixel perfect when the smooth type is on. A Guy
