Question, should i just try and reinstall? ..(OS windows7 hp service pk 1, internet explorer 10, 4 gig ram, 400g free space, system all up to date) thanks for any help...airboat233
In what way it crashed? Did you use the portable version or the installer?
If you had the older version installed and installed the new one, it is possible that something from the old version remained on your computer. Usually, this should not happen, but who knows. Using the portable version and putting it into a new, empty folder is the easiest way to get it running. If you want the installed version, it may help to uninstall the older one first, then verify the there is nothing left in the application folder (usually C:\Program Files\RealWorld Paint), then go to %APPDATA%\RealWorld\RWPaint and delete the PlugIns folder, which may contain updates for the older version. Then install the new version downloaded from this web (some mirrors, like download.com may have older builds).
Hi and thanks a heap. I did the uninstall and checked for left overs (could not find any) and then installed the new version. All is good .Thanks agin airboat233
Is pcx the only option for the size of a new canvas / picture? I would need mm or cm and DPI
Yes, only pixels can be used and you can also select dpi (pixels/dpi*25.4 = mm).
But you can use simple expressions when specifying image size. If you want to set the size of your new image to 20mm at 100DPI, you can type "20*100/25.4" (without the quotes) into the Width box and 100 into the Resolution box and it will work.
May I ask why you want to use these physical units at image creation? They only matter at the moment of printing and if you use the print plug-in, you may select desired size in physical units just before printing and see how the image fits onto a page.
