why so? why fix whats not broken?

Being open to new things is always a good thing. Try Promotion for a bit longer and if you have questions, just read the manual, and if you then still have questions pm me, I am almost as complete as the manual and I prolly can point you to some stuff that is a bit more obscure :P
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

I started spriting with Paint.
It get's the job done for me but that is probably only because I am a newbie spriter. Eventually it will probably be crap to me as well.

Ms-paint isn't bad or anything, its just that it has no Features that other programs from the 80s and 90s had
such as Dulex paint (animation, color wise and so).
Anyway the whole issue isn't about the tool artist use but the artist himself.

Wow. Lots of people here don't like MS Paint *tugs at her shirt collar* lol

Well, I gave it a 9. Why? I like it alot. I can do pixel art with it. lol
That and it's the only program I've ever used for pixel art. So I'm totally in the dark about all these other programs you guys are talking about.

I use Photoshop to make things transparent, and I also use it to save my pixel work as GIFs without losing any color (which MS Paint does for some reason).

As for making animated sprites, I use a little handy program called UnFREEz. It's very basic, but it does the job.

One feature I'd like MS Paint to have is a "layer" feature where I can open a hand-drawn pic, and pixel over it without actually effecting the pic. ...If ya all know what I mean. lol

<3 mspaint... my best bud :)

Indeed.
Just a shame about the palette management and trans. Other than that, It's my gold... or fool's gold.

It's a basic image editor that comes with windows. BASIC... there are better image editors out there, like photoshop and even paint shop.. or god forbid GIMP... (which is actually a wee bit better these days). I know that these do not cater for pixelart but mspaint doesn't either.

Photoshop is awesome as a tool for all sorts of image manipulation and editing. Painter is great for emulating traditional media. Paint-shop pro and the rest are a bit cack... but essentially perform a similar role to photoshop... but paint.. (cough, cough) paint is like the pocket knife of an image editor. You'd only ever use it if there was NOTHING else available.

Something like pro-motion is MADE for pixelling. Argument over. Why even argue about it?

Old argument.

I own Pro Motion; I went out of my way to get it--- and you know what? I STILL use MS Paint. Why? Because every time I open up Pro Motion, I feel like a fucking idiot. How could a program that's used to create such a simple form of art be so ridiculously complex? I'm sure that if I studied the program a bit, I'd grow to love it. Meh. I guess I'll start studying that manual again...

Old habits are hard to break.

Straying from the Promotion vs MSPaint discussion, is a MSPaint pallete competition an old idea? Im sure it is, but that would be fun if it were (re)made.
