    "BAD...Don't Download"

    May 01, 2012   |   By jaylark

    Version: Ultimate Paint Freeware Edition 2.88 build 1135

    Pros

    I finally got the affending file off my computer. It was almost impossible to remove this software from computer.

    Cons

    Buggy, Corrupt!!!

    Couldn't close program after using -- kept getting pop-up message saying access denied.

    Minimize the program and went to add & remove files. After removing files, got message that it couldn't remove all files.

    Tried to go directly to folder to delete file, and it said access denied because program is currently being used. Yes, it's still open, can't close it.

    Turn off computer to try to get software to shut down. After rebooting, the program is still open...it won't close. Keep getting access denied.

    Finally, decided to do a system restore, which finally worked and got the offending & crude program off my computer.

    Moral of the story is to deal with name brands you trust!!!!!

    Summary

    Do I need to say more??????????

    "Not great-but good for it's size"

    October 24, 2009   |   By sndwnr

    Version: Ultimate Paint Freeware Edition 2.88 build 1135

    Pros

    I've used this little program for a number of years. It works well at touching up graphics (though limited). I like it's small size, and it works well for me. Nothing fancy, just the basics.

    Cons

    As stated above-nothing fancy, just the basics.

    Summary

    A realloy nice, little program and the price is right.

    "It works, but no advantage"

    January 18, 2007   |   By Ghost_ARCHER

    Version: Ultimate Paint Freeware Edition 2.88 build 1135

    Pros

    It works and does what it supposed to do.

    File size is slim.

    Cons

    No support for advanced features like layers.

    Following freeware is much more powerful.

    gimp (need gtk)

    paint.net (need .net framework)

    photobie (need .net framework)

    photoplus

    "Has features that are better or non existent in MS Paint and others."

    December 27, 2006   |   By Pyrolizard

    Version: Ultimate Paint Freeware Edition 2.88 build 1135

    Pros

    One of the things I really like about this program is that you can rotate any image, or even just a part of an image 360 degrees without losing the quality of whatever you rotated. This program supports transparency in GIFs, a few filters(such as Embossing), Alpha [selection] support (the "Magic Wand" tool is useful here, hold mouse button down on "rectangle select" to find it.), and all this among other things. It is all around better than the MS Paint that comes with windows, if you give it a chance and take a second to read the help file that comes with it.

    Cons

    The user interface isn't what you might call "simple" and maybe a little weird. It isn't like you have one main window--you can have (sometimes by mistake) several image editing windows, along with the program window open at the same time, cluttering up your desktop. It get's a little confusing in that case. Unfortunately, this is somewhat common with some Paint programs so it's just something you might just have to get used to (along with learning what buttons do what) It's not something you're going to figure out in its entirety in one day, unless you've got plenty of time :P .

    "Shutdown twice in middle of use"

    July 25, 2006   |   By randy_coyote

    Version: Ultimate Paint Freeware Edition 2.88 build 1135

    Pros

    This program has a lot of user control available. Each tool seems to have a lot of variations. The Symmetry function is kind of neat, but I'm not sure it's all that practical.

    Cons

    First, it shutdown on me twice while I was trying to modify a bmp file. Second, it's so flexible the user interface is confusing and counterintuitive. This program requires a lot of practice to use effectivley. It is certainly not for someone who wants to some quick clean up of graphics or to just change colors. I've uninstalled and am in search of something simpler, and more stable.

    "OK program, has nice effects....."

    March 30, 2006   |   By megamannt92

    Version: Ultimate Paint Freeware Edition 2.88 build 1135

    Pros

    I use this program to design pictures and graphics for my web page (jonasmmp.50megs.com). Has some nice tools and some really nice effects you can add. Alright program but not the best....

    Cons

    Can be a pain to move around and postion words and graphics and it lacks some tools that other programs have.
