Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've been using Paint Shop Pro since around version 3 or so, and since it's release nine years ago I've been using version 7. I just love the interface, though it is dated now, and I understand how to use the program. However, for some reason the tool options palette window will no longer minimise when I move the mouse away (after switching to Windows 7 it's started doing this) and it's really irritating... so I've realised that, much as I love the old program, it's time to move on.
I've tried using some freeware programs such as Gimp and Picasa, but none of them have a browser that seems to work as well as PSP7's. I can't explain it. They just confuse me. I'm pretty sure I've tried others over time but I can't remember any. I like PSP7's editing capabilities (though they are limited nowadays) and would like any new program I use to have some good options of its own, but something as big as Photoshop confuses me.
Any suggestions would be great. I know there's a learning curve to face because whatever programs I try will have a different interface, but something that marries an excellent picture browser like PSP7's with immediate editing options (without having to change windows or programs) would be fantastic.
...and I thought of how all those people died, and what a good death that is. That nobody can blame you for it, because everyone else died along with you, and it is the fault of none, save those who did the killing.
