"Poor substitute for Microsoft Paint"

August 01, 2015  |  By Xtremetic

 |  Version: PaintRibbon 1.1.3

Pros

Provides ribbon interface for XP users, but with less functionality than the Windows 7 version of Paint, apart from good support for layers, with a dockable layers panel and the ability to resize images which is not available in the XP version of Paint. Can save In the TIFF format as well as PNG, JPEG, BMP and PRB formats.

Cons

After a brief acquaintance with Paint Ribbon I list some of the most glaring shortcomings of this program.

Requires .NET Framework so is slow to load. No handles on selection to enable resizing. Undo button does not work for alterations of existing images. I cannot find the paint tool. Less tools and shapes compared to those available with the Windows 7 version of Paint. No transparency selection or other selection options available. No free-form selection available. The workspace is severely limited by the ribbon interface and an inexplicable empty space above it. No print preview available which even the XP version of Paint had.

Summary

Despite it's limited functionality the Windows 7 version of paint was a highly polished product like everything that Microsoft does. PaintRibbon needs much further development to match Microsoft quality, but it does offer good layers support. For other entry level paint programs it might be worth checking out LazPaint, Pinta and Fotographix.
