I have been using Paint.NET for several years now it is a better than good for image and photo manipulation, and considering that it is free it becomes the obvious replacement for the native MSPaint.

I have been doing a bit of basic Windows programming recently and needed to create some icon files. I found this excellent add-in to Paint.NET that allows you to save files to directly to the icon format in Paint.NET.

The installation simply requires that you place the IcoCur.dll into C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\FileTypes folder!

Enjoy!
