Let’s face it, when you want to do photo or picture editing the default Microsoft Paint is not nearly enough. A lot of applications have tried to fill the void and AMC e-Paint offers witty humor along with a robust editing package.
Installation & Requirements
The program’s setup is very simple and there is nothing that will confuse you. The only thing you have to decide is whether or not you want Alchemy Mindworks’ UpToDate software to check for updates automatically or not. The supported operating systems are Windows NT/98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/7/8 in 32 bit forms but 64 bit systems can run it as well.
If you are a free user, the first time you open the application you will be asked to evaluate the software simply by clicking on the respective button. The application will connect to the internet and do the rest. You will also need to go through the first run wizard. You will go through various options like setting the theme and the way the application’s tools behave. You can leave all of them at default and you can also choose to change them later in the settings menu so you need not worry about it.
As with any image editing software, it will take some time to get used to the myriad of options presented by the application. However, the interface is quite clean and does not feel like it is cluttered with information and tools like other applications of its kind. A lot of the tools you will use in this program are very common amongst editing software. Even if you have used just Paint you will find a lot of familiar tools here but they have a lot more options and are more robust all around. For example, the simple pen can be edited in size, transparency, angle and flatness as well as shape. Every single tool has a very nice amount of options that help customize your work to an incredible degree.
In general, the application offers most things you expect to find in an editing program. Filters, conversions, cropping, editing and fixing parts of whatever image you are currently working on are all very easy to do with e-Paint. Obviously, you can either insert an existing image or create one of your own from scratch. You can even merge images to create whatever you want and the zooming tools are incredibly helpful to keep track of your editing needs.
