Having been a windows user for what seems like ages now, I have always been looking for a substitute for the disappointing and featureless MS Paint, Microsoft's standard paint program. Upon coming across PaintBuster, I was happily satisfied. The program features robust support for almost all the image formats that I could come up with, including JPEG, GIF, PNG, ICO, and much much more. Although the GUI (graphical user interface) is nothing amazing, its simplicity is pleasing and enjoyable. PaintBuster avoids overdoing the GUI and becoming hard to handle like many other programs. I also enjoyed PaintBuster because of how snappy and fast it is. Rather than opening up the huge Photoshop application I have, I can now use PaintBuster to make simple as well as more complex changes such as cropping, resizing, color adjustments, and exposure to all types of images.

Overall, PaintBuster is extremely robust for how lightweight and fast it functions. This is an incredible alternative to MS Paint that I use frequently in daily editing of pictures. My only gripe, however, is its high price tag. At $35 I start to question whether its really worth it, but upon consideration I think it is, although that's for the buyer to decide in the end.


Looking for a replacement for your lackluster MS Paint application? Or just in search for a program that will take care of quick fixes effectively? PaintBuster is right for you.
