Paint download?
« on: September 15, 2007, 09:50:04 pm »
Might be the wrong forum...  :-\
Whatever. I wanted to ask if anyone could give me a download link to the Vista version of MS Paint maybe? I wanted to try that out..

Heh, I'm not even sure if that's possible without installing Vista, but I too am interested if it is.

On a vaguely related topic, does anyone know where I can get an old copy of paint with the transparency switch intact?

I found out that theres an emulator you can use to start some programs that come with Vista, just like its version of paint. But I couldnt find the .exe anywhere on the net, and I didnt want to wait any longer, so I just hacked my current version of paint, replaced the icons, cursors, the program icon and the palette :D

I'm really interested in getting the old Paintbrush version of windows 3.11. First of nostalgia reasons (it's what I started of with pixeling) and because I remember, that it was possible to save the current palette and load it again later, but maybe it's necessery to install a old windows version and to copy the paintbrush?

Shame, I would have liked one or two extra goodies.  :(

Yeah, I was told that there was a zoom slider, improved palette, and a crop feature.
