If you didn’t notice that I have a new banner on my website, then you need to visit my site more often (including you RSS readers). It was created using paint.NET which is nothing less than Photoshop as far as I am concerned … and it’s free!

It started development at Washington State University as an undergraduate senior design project mentored by Microsoft, and is currently being maintained by some of the alumni that originally worked on it. Originally intended as a free replacement for the MS Paint software that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful yet simple tool for photo and image editing. (source)

Although the banner above might not say much for my artistic skills, it should definitely tell you that an amateur like me can easily generate professional quality images using paint.NET.

It was created using the following picture (taken by my brother in NY) on a layer which was made semi-transparent.

By the way, the fact that my banner is professional quality is not a matter for debate.

So what are you waiting for? Ditch that illegal copy of Photoshop on your PC and download paint.NET!
