Introducing RealWorld Paint.COM

Published by on December 25th 2008.

RealWorld Photos (to be released next week) is going to get a freeware sibling called RealWorld Paint.COM, a lightweight, easy-to-use, general purpose image editor with some notable features. Why Paint.COM? To give a hard time and point out all .net framework weaknesses. .com has always been better than .net, don't you think?

List of features

  • Image masks (selections) - create selections with various tools including Magic wand or Brush select. Apply functions like blur, grow, shrink, import or export to image mask.
  • Layers - add, remove, duplicate, import, export layers. Assign effects to layers (for example have everything in a layer beveled).
  • Opacity (alpha channel) - automatic alpha channel - it is there when you need it.
  • Gradients and pattern fills - fill drawn shapes with custom gradients or assign a gradient overlay to a layer.
  • Powerful drawing tools - modify last shape with control handles. Add/remove vertices to/from poly-lines and polygons by dragging and dropping a handles.
  • Ps-compatible filters - the application is able to use image filters compatible with Adobe Photoshop.
  • Scripting - create your own image filters in JavaScript. Make use of built-in filters and tools from within the script.

Give it a try!

…and you will be pleasantly surprised. While the application looks simple, you will discover it goes deeper than an average freeware image editor after using it for a while. It is fast and responsive, capable of working with large images, it supports mouse gestures, can do gamma-aware blending, Photoshop plug-ins, and that’s just the beginning.

And best of all: .net framework is NOT needed and the application is easily portable.
