    Default Drawing

    I use M/S "Paint" a great deal to make drawings and edit pictures. BUT I would so like to make shapes and (in particular) cut and paste neatly on an angle rather than only horizontally and vertically.

    Is there a software, available in NZ, which will do this?

    (I know "Paint" is considered dumb, but it is easy to use!!)

    Paint.Net

    As for your particular feature, I guess you would play around with the "Layers" menu and the "Rotate/Zoom" item.

    Illustrator would be the best app for that. It works very well with InDesign if you are doing print work or is fine by itself.

    If you want something free have a look at the free Serif software

    Serif have been round for years (I used them on a 386 in the early 90s), they tend to make older versions of their software available

    I don't know if they (older versions) would run on Vista, and I haven't used them in a while but I beleive they have "quick shapes" (I don't get to draw things, probably just as well)

    There is also various other Serif software on there
