XP Paint for 7

on: September 08, 2011, 06:12:00 am
I recently upgraded computers, and Paint has always been the only way I've done pixel art, but as I'm sure most of you know, Windows 7's Paint is terrible. I've heard about several programs that are like XP's, but one of them is down and the others are basically GIMP, which I already have and prefer Paint to.

So, is there anything as simple and precise as XP Paint that I can use? Even user created programs are welcome.

you can find the xp version of paint on the internet.  However graphics gale is probably the best way to go if you want a simple pixel art interface.

First, welcome back, Pixelation. I missed you.

Second, I found the actusl program from XP on a site, so it's all good here. Been using it quite a bit.
