I know what you mean Doc. Up until 5 years ago I was still using one of
the first ATARI computers, you know, the one with 3
interconnected old style floppy drives. I had the original PRINTSHOP by
Broderbund on floppy, thats what I started out with.
Then I got an old IBM E26 (K6 processor) and rebuilt it), I still use it. But I
prefer using the one I'm on now, It's a cheap little
eMachine that I spent a year upgrading and modifying to my own specs &
requirements. I've replaced everything on it except
for the PC board and CPU.
There used to be a nice little free graphics editing program available for
download on softwarearchives.com , but that site
no longer exists as a free site. I still have a copy on my "F" drive in a zip folder.
It's called UltimateFX, it's shareware and is
fully operational. If anyone would like to try it I can make it available for
download on here under this heading,
it is only 2.1MB in size very manageable on a highspeed connection.
If the moderators here do not mind me doing so.?Or e-mail it if your IP allows for
that large an attachement. If not then I will try to make it available at SaveFile.com
since I am planning to put my heads and skins there anyhow, that's if i can ever
get them all organized into zip folders.

* Here is the text file about the UFX prog explaining some of its components.
*******************************************************
Ultimate FX 1.3 by MEGALUX Ltd.
Paint program for the creative.
Includes JPG/JFIF, GIF, PCX, BMP, PNG, WMF/EMF,
ICO, IFF/LBM, TGA and TWAIN Scanner support,
flexible brush handling, more than a hundred
photo-processing filters and effects, printing
and extensive help system. Multiple undo/redo.
Built-in image browser and image optimization
wizard. Send image via E-Mail and HTML
thumbnail generator.
*****************************************************
Not bad for a free shareware prog. All you have to do is move the
small splash screen asking you to register it out of the way. The
software is fully functional even without registering it.

I also get tired of seeing Photoshop just about everywhere too so I like to avoid it. :wink

Uh-oh, you meant Paint Shop, right? PhotoShop is much more expensive.

Alady, you said: Print Shop. That name brings back some very old memories, like even before Windows existed, and I could only choose between black & white or 16 radioactive colours for drawings.
I think the artist in me has been traumatized by having to use that program in the past.? :zdg_hitcomp

Yes I did mean Photoshop and that's also another good reason for me to avoid it   ;D

Here is the UltimateFX  zip folder. Just download, unzip it to the directory of your choice,
click on the self-extracting program installer and give it try.

*Please remove this reply and download file if you wish to do so.
Just let me know if this was not something you wish to have on here. :)

Tom, looks very professional.  I've no idea how to do some of it but I'll have fun making it out.

Lynn, Sent me an e-mail in the morning if no one sends you the program by then and I'll send to you.
Can't now, I'll be out for the evening.

All,
  Just upgraded to Paint Shop Pro 9, on sale after the X version came out.  Prior to 9 I was using ver 4 which was the only version I had without a time limit.  I have some skin and cloth samples which I wanted to upload but I am having problems uploading them.  I'd say it's a pretty good editor.

All,
  I picked up Paint Shop Pro 9 a while ago, on sale because of the release of  the X version.  Prior to 9 I was using ver 4, the only one without a time limitation, I also tried a few other samples but  liked Pro.

I believe that the makers of Paint Shop come up with a new version every year.
I am not convinced that new versions contain actual improvements.
