Hand Drawing Software

  BBW 16:32 27 Jun 2005

Can any one recommend a drawing programme! Something easy like MS paint, but with added options.
I like hand drawing and have used them in my web site to illustrate.
I have used:
1. 'Paint Shop Pro 7,' horrendous for simple drawings.
2. 'Serif Drawplus 7,' wants to stop you drawing simply.
3. 'Ultimate Paint,' but will insist on doing it's own thing.
4. I have always used 'MGI Photosuite SE,' but it was taken over by ROXIO who do not support it, and since upgrading to WIN2000 it will not draw as before.
I have purchased each package , so don't want to pay up again for software I cannot use!

Try the new trial of MS Acrylic - it seems very nice to me.

Hi All,
Curio, a little basic for me!
DieSse, I'm running Win 2000, the programme runs XP only!
€dstowe, looks very promising, can draw and edit photograhs, plus it will copy from clipboard to Paint.net.
Many thanks all
Best Regards, Brian

Many thanks for your suggestions 'Belatucadrus' 'Pixia' looks very promising. I have started to use 'Ultimate Paint' from a disc supplied with the mag. Layers don't get in the way, and it works very similar to my old paint programme, so no learning curves. It is also reasonably priced!
