MsPaint Hack


I made this hack paint, to have more attractive colors on the main palette and some key shortcuts that had not previously existed.
This is great for those who like to make pixel art in the classic mode!


Key Shortcuts:

z zoom 
x rubber 
c bucket of paint 
v brush 
f dropper 
b Pencil 
n select 
s aerosol 
g rectangle
h curve line
j straight line
k rectangle with rounded edges 
l free select
p polygon

I did not understand your question, can you be more specific?

caca (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 8/17/2014 18:29

Awesome. Thanks. Is there a way to bring back the color remplacer in windows 7's paint?

Thank you very much!!

I usually like to give various programmes a try, but so far i've kept to GG.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/29/2014 16:18

No. You use the app that is the most comfortable for you. It does not matter what one uses at all.
The most popular for pixelartists lately has been GraFX. Free and plenty of addons in the forum plus plenty of help for it.

Wow I really wish I would've had this when I was growing up. Always boggled me why they didn't include shortcuts.

AshCrimson (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/29/2014 13:46

Good to see people still working on mspaint! This will probably sound stupid, but im currently using GraphicsGale, is there any reason to use MsPaint over GraphicsGale or should i stick with GG?

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/29/2014 12:07

The ctrl+y feature to redo something after undoing it doesn't work D: ctrl+z works but ctrl+y does nothing, please fix it! I'd like to use this :D

Good idea. I made a french version if anyone is interested:

Great, thanks for sharing! Does the hack close the program every time someone tries to use the aerosol tool, like it should? 

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/28/2014 17:44

You know GraphicsGale allows you to change the startup palette and configure keyboard shortcuts.
