When you click the download link, a page opens with the download, just un-check the "Use our download manager and get recommended downloads" box. You'll get the zip file that you want. My Avast keeps blocking the site/file so I just disabled. After download I checked using VirusTotal and comes up clean.

It can export to other vector graphics formats such as SVG as well as non-vector graphics formats like JPG, TIFF, PNG, EMF, WMF, PSD, BMP, and PSD.

The program supports OLE allowing one to copy objects and paste to other OLE applications and vice versa, but the portable mode may experience issues with this.

seems like this program deals with the registry, it comes with some registry files and their contents hint that the registry gets modified a lot by this program...

@Andrew Lee: Yes I know about it. I don't expect to make a 64 bit version any time soon. Someone already asked them about it and got a link: That's why I'm asking here, maybe someone has tried or knows something.

Has some interesting features but so far I find I prefer PhotoDemon, which seems to have a few more filters and controls.

PapaiMark on 2020-05-17 21:32

A simple operation of copy / paste a piece of an image is a nightmare.
No shell options for selection.

circular on 2020-10-07 15:24

@PapaiMark I am a bit shocked that you say it would be nightmare to copy / paste a piece of an image. I invite you to add an issue on the GitHub page of LazPaint to explain the problem you are encountering. You can also post suggestions of improvement there.

and a quick FYI about the comment on not having to pay for CSS editing, the "free one' in the program seems to be somewhat of a bad joke. It is a beat-around-the bush feature that lets you do something you wouldnt expect it to, and other features are just plain missing.. they may be there buried somewhere, but to a user who just installed it and is testing it out, it isn't very convincing, I did manage to find some of the features after an hour, and you shouldn't have to go into code to correct something that the editor did wrong. The spell checker seems like instead of correcting words it replaces the word and leaves the misspelled word right next to it. Like I said, maybe there is some option buried but to the new user of the product, it just doesn't do it. I ended up just writing my own simple WYSIWYG webpage editor in a few days and have the functionality i need... sheesh

webfork on 2013-11-05 22:13

osirisgothra: Every WYSIWYG editor I've worked with requires that I go back at some point and fix something in the code that the macro editor side broke. In my experience so far, BlueGriffon does some things better, some things worse. As to the CSS and rigidity, I agree, but the truth is that this is the direction Adobe went with Dreamweaver and I think BlueGriffin is trying to be an OSS alternative to that program rather than a normal WYSIWYG.

extracting the installer works with Universal Extractor (last version: 1.6.1), when updating bin/innounp.exe to latest version.
