Paint.NET is an open source, raster graphics editing program for Windows, developed on the .NET Framework. Originally created as a Washington State University student project, Paint.NET has evolved from a simple replacement for the Microsoft Paint program, which is included with Windows, into a powerful editor with support for layers, blending, transparency, and plugins. It is often used as a free, legal alternative to the costly photoshop.
It features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help, tutorials, and plug-ins.

When you are posting images in blogs or forums, You like to have a watermark on them. So that all know its been uploaded by you. If you are running a blog or a website, You use this to prevent copying. Even if someone copies he’ll be advertising for your site. 🙂
There are many utilities available to watermark images. Very few are free and this is one of them. The actual application size is just 24KB. When I downloaded this I thought it’ll be a junk program. But then it’s coded with .NET. It’s small and serves my purpose. Remember that it’s a simple watermarker. You can change font, font size, bold, italics and underline text. You can change the position of watermark and its rotation.

Whats that??? I actually never figured out why programming languages have such names. .Net, C#, C ,C++ (yeah yeah. ++ because it’s the next version of C). But then I realized that they must have considered some situations which may lead to many confusions. And the confusions lead to more confusions.
Imagine if the programming languages have names of human beings. Consider .Net. If .Net was called as Jessica (My favorite Hollywood actress). What would have been difficulties while conversations?? Something like…
I want to learn Jessica
I’m learning Jessica
Jessica is Object oriented
Jessica has garbage collector
Programmers are really intelligent persons. I never under estimated them. But they do consider such things and it’s mind blowing.
Does that programmers rule apply to me?? I’m writing code in .Net and hence logically I’m a programmer. But how can a person with lot’s of nonsense be called a programmer and hence an intelligent person?? Consider myself as an exception. 😀
