It is an impressive program but I would like to see much faster
freehand drawing. In other words, it is not much good as a _paint_
program. (Compared to TVPaint, for example.)

For image processing, it is one of the programs everyone should have
on their drive. And it's free.

Agreed. PPaint however is a more than adequate replacement for DPaint. I have yet to find anything as good as either of those on *any* platform. Perfect Paint however serves as a superb middle ground between a Bitmap painter and an Image processor.

Jasc software's family of painting products such as paint shop pro and animation shop combined give a pretty good competition in my experience.

Altough they may seem crap if you have'nt spent lots of time dwelling into the combined usage of tools in those 2 programs.

I liked Paintshop Pro up to version 5 but in the recent versions, the more "features" they add, the worse it gets - its not intuitive any more and simple operations take ages because it keeps trying to second guess you. Just damned annoying. They should've stuck to what they were good at and not tried to be more like Photoshop.

There is a Windows DPaint clone called Promtion from www.cosmigo.com

It is only 8 bit, but is a fairly close copy of DPaint.

I have tried those, even bought Paintshop Pro at some point.
Animation shop, at least at that point, did little but eat up all the memory in the machine, obviously made for creating tiny gifanims, not full screen animations for hires-laced TV resolution modes :)

PfPaint is a wonderful product, I just have one wish: *Please* give me back the standard Intuition menus at the top of the screen!

I completely agree with that. An Amiga program should follow Amiga
standards unless there is a very good reason, which there isn't in
this case.

It is very annoying to hit the right mouse button for Save, Quit, etc
- and nothing happens.

The problem with intuition menues and gadgets is that you can't change their colours (pens) after the screen is opened.
However the same trick as in PPaint could be used: change the palette while the menu is displayed.

DeLuxe Paint also changed the palette for viewing menus and
requesters.

But I only use Perfect Paint on a 24-bit display. There should be no
problems working on a 4-bit (or whatever) image in a window on a
24-bit display.
