A handy picture editor application
The user interface of the program is clean and intuitive. You can open a new document by setting the page width and height.
But you can also open an existing image file in the PNT (Paint Ribbon files), BMP, JPG, JPEG, PNG, TIF or TIFF formats.
So, you can use a selection tool and magic wand, select a circular area by drawing on the canvas, take a screenshot and draw shapes.
Furthermore, you can use tools for pan, fill, text, brush and color picker, as well as zoom in and out. Plus, you can crop, resize and rotate the image, add and duplicate layers, as well as specify primary and secondary colors.
PaintRibbon also lets you switch to full screen mode, fit image to window, show or hide the layers and colors dialog windows, use the "undo" and "redo" functions, apply the grayscale or sepia effect, as well as invert selection.
Last but not least, you can set an image as wallpaper or share it online (e.g. send by email, publish on Facebook or Twitter).
The software takes up a massive amount of system resources and doesn't include a help file. Unfortunately, PaintRibbon doesn't come bundled with enough graphic editing tools but the app didn't freeze, crash or pop up errors during our tests. We can only suggest you test it for yourself.
