RealWorld Paint.COM 2009.1
« on: April 20, 2009, 09:13 AM »
Hi all,

new version of our freeware image editor is out. Paint.COM supports layers with styles, Photoshop .8bf plug-ins, scripted filters and more.

New version brings:
  • portability - all settings are local in portable mode
  • languages - application can be translated by ordinary users
  • tutorials - on an embedded web page
  • lasso, move and fill tools

Enjoy,
Vlasta

Me either.  I have RealWorld Icon Editor that I got during one of the contests that I use on occasion.  It is good, though I am no artist so mine are very good at all.  I don't take enough time I guess.  The software quality is good though.  I will check this one out and maybe buy it if it covers all I do with photoshop (a very old version, but I can't justify upgrading for the relatively simple tasks I do).

I see from the comments here http://fileforum.bet...aintNET/1096481993/1 that Paint.NET does not support Photoshop .8bf plug-ins

that is a hard question, I'll have to find some time to make a comparison, but here are few points:

Paint.COM:
* is not .net based and hence more portable, faster and less resource intensive,
* already has features that are planned fro Paint.net 4.0 like layer effects (video) or soft selections,
* has more advanced drawing tools - you can adjust last drawn shape, use non-integral coordinates, define custom fill gradients or sRGB optimized blending
* good Photoshop .8bf plug-in compatibility

Paint.NET:
* older and more established -> more tutorials and people, who can give you an advice
* more effects and native plug-ins created by community
* simpler user interface

There is much more differences, but for starters it should be enough...

I agree, Paint.com is really nice and speedy in what it does.  A great project ! (with a perhaps not so well chosen name?).
Is the main difference to your "RealWorld Photos" the option there, to do the lossless JPG editing?

- have to admit I originally thought the thread was about a new version of Paint.NET

You also found Photos? There are a couple of other differences - it is paid, can do batch processing (also via droplets), has few more filters and tools focused on photo retouching (like cropping to given aspect ratio or with perspective removal, cloning tool, comic bubble tool, content-aware resizing, unsharp mask, levels, vignetting correction).

In short, Photos is for photo retouching and batch processing and Paint is for creation of logos and other web graphic.

Yes, the Paint.COM name is controversial, a bit of a joke and something to counterweight the flood of .net apps. I am old school C++.
