    One of the most simple and useful tools for cutting down screen shots etc to create user manuals.

    yes I am sure there are better programs but this just worked and was easy to use.

    It's only been deprecated; they aren't actually removing it. Or not yet…

    Yes, pretty much the only thing I use Paint for, usually when someone asks me to email a screenshot of something that's easier doing that than explaining what's on screen.

    Plus it's included in the client's standard laptop build so no need to try to install other 'unauthorised' applications.

    I suppose there's still Paint 3D if/when they remove Paint itself, but doubt it's as simple/quick to use, if it even offers the same 2D functionality set.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    I liked WordPerfect and DrawPerfect, and went to great effort to learn them thoroughly, until the rug was pulled on them.

    Never really got into Photoshop, and would never contemplate paying for the latest "online / cloud" version, as I like full local control of my programs and data.

    (I did once manage to find a bootleg copy of Photoshop that to all appearances worked. But the fecking thing was all in Spanish! )

    Now that would be interesting. Plenty of geeks out there that would like to have a play with that I am sure. Could be fun.

    Still the best use of Paint other than abusing MF

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”
