I think I'm going to install Paint.NET. I need a replacement for my trusty licenced Corel PhotoPaint 7 (for Windows 95 which doesn't even support the PNG format).
I installed Gimp since everybody talked about it, but it disappointed me. I guess it can do everything I need, but I can't find where! I never read any manual for Corel PhotoPaint and yet I could find all the options I needed intuitively enough; in Gimp I can find none. I'll try Paint.NET.
What I need is: color management (change RGB to palette: optimized, adaptative), GIF animations, transparencies, effects (such as pixelize), rotate, pixel by pixel retouching, etcetera etcetera. I just can't believe Gimp doesn't have these options but I just can't find almost any of them, so I'm not liking the interface, and I'm sure it has lots of Photoshop clone stuff I don't need. I could always stick with Corel.
Any advice? Where to find these options in Gimp? Can Paint.NET do these jobs?
THX in advance
