New features of Personal Paint 7.2 include:
The CD version of Personal Paint 7.1 is also available at a special upgrade price. For additional information on upgrading please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions section. A free upgrade of the main program file from version 7.0 to version 7.1 is available in the download section.
Unlike version 7.0, which was the last version to also be available on floppy disk, Personal Paint 7.1 was only available on CD (a full-size CD-ROM, not an 8 cm CD like the 7.0 "Limited Edition", which became a CD collector's item). In 1997 the standalone version was discontinued, and Personal Paint was merged into the Amiga Forever distribution.
A demonstration version of the software, as well as updates and other support files are now available for free download. This site also contains a Frequently Asked Questions section and other Documents about Personal Paint, plus a special presentation on Internet Graphics. The Distributors section used to explain where you can get Personal Paint, which is now included in Amiga Forever.
