I lost my graphics tools

Post by llewelyn » Thu Jan 09, 2020 3:52 pm

Its been over a year since I last did some sprite designs and it would seem that during that period I nuked the folder that had my graphics tools in it! Now i can't recall the names or locations so what I need are some apps that run on Windows that I can use to make Spectrum sprites and UDG's. Can anyone help me by suggesting something, it would probably be better than what I had anyway.

Thank you both. ZXPaintbrush site's either gone or turned all German but I think its gone. I looked for it online and the pages all said go to the website. I think I did have that one too and 7up sounds familiar as well.

HEY! Wow! Brilliant! I typed it into my Windows search box and lo and behold it found it! Wasn't showing up when I went through the Programs listing, weird eh, but great! Now lets see if it can resurrect 7UP!

No joy with 7Up though, oh well, ZX Paintbrush is possibly all I need.

You can still download it here. Just start typing paint into the search field and it’ll show up.

Multupaint is also another great paint program.

Same place I linked you to a couple of post earlier. You need to spell it out, though: SevenuP.
