Download link still pointing to Pixia 6.00G rather than to 6.00H and gets a "not found" error.

Webfork is correct, there is a portable version. Worked fine for me on XP. I also like the knockoff of it called Pinta available for Linux. It's not full-featured yet, but it certainly works.
Off-topicP If you really want portable, put your favorite version of Linux including whatever programs you want on a USB stick and you've got an entire portable OS!

Checker: a portable version of Paint.net is available, but untested and not something I would use: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=61988#p61988

@ Fixitman: But Paint.net is not portable ... or is it?

Just get Paint.net, works much like photoshop, but very easy to understand, installs easily, has layers, has add-on tools, no install problems... there's even a program for Linux based on it (Pinta.) I use it even when something simple like Paint (in Windows) would do, but also for more complex tasks. It's not something you'd use in a professional environment, but then again you wouldn't be using a freeware program if that were your occupation.
Pixia is buggy, even according to the Japanese creators website.

I forgot to change the download link ... again. (I'm an old man) ;)
Sorry for that.

Download link fixed.
@rogerthedodger: you need to follow "How to extract" instructions.


rogerthedodger 2013-02-10 02:24

yep download link definitely busted, and the website only lists an installer?

Whoa dejavu...

The download link seems broken

You have to go to website:

Napiophellos:I have not used it since I found those files,maybe that option would work but it was not thumbs.db as I have that disabled-it was a hidden file and cant remember the name-but you have to select show hidden files and show protected system files in folder options-then I saw the files in every folder I opened with Pixia.
