even in the realm of professionals, suggestions are typically allowed.  usually you just can't outsource a significant portion of the job, which oddly enough in todays world does not include the early creative processes....

You would still be making a choice to follow the other's suggestion.

what if someone suggests an idea for you to do? should you technically be disqualified? :O

Using the Vista MSPaint default colors create a scene of your choice.

If you choose to make an abstract scene, then it is allowed. But it is not allowed if you don't choose to do so.

XP also had a blurring resize, unless you selected the image.

Nothing good, but it has new buttons and a blurring resize, which veritably SUCKS.

Oh, the palette has approved! Has Paint  had any new features, bug fixes or updates too?

user
soda (Level 10 President) @ 11/26/2007 12:56
Is there a way to download or get this palette?

Nevermind, got it.

The Vista palette is surprisingly decent compared to previous versions.

In which case, I actually wish we were using an older version's colors! Would've been more of a challenge.

Google images just inspired me

No guys, you don't have to use all the colors. Its just an exploration of the default color possibilities.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 11/26/2007 02:16
