    U-Paint is now updated to the 2.5 version. I want to thank the over 400 people that downloaded my old versions. The new version in addition to the included readme, has a built-in manual and an included PDF manual, hopefully this will be helpful to those who seem to refuse to read the instructions in the readme.

    There has been a lot of changes added to this version, and it is very close to being a serious free replacement for Art Academy. You can now save and load your drawings, there is an undo button, there is a color dropper now, and some other new features, and is worth upgrading to the new version.

    From the Readme -
    Screenshots of the built-in manual and included PDF manual -

    Update: If you are not using HDMI to a 720p or 1080p TV, the app is not guaranteed to work properly.

    Currently looking over the FS functions to include SD card saving and loading, probably in BMP format so you won't lose any quality. Possibly may also include FTP functions like ftpiiu, but SD Card is probably going to be the most user friendly and will be added first. You can already save screenshots of your work using something like USendMii though, so use that until I add more functions to the program. I've checked out Art Academy Sketchpad, and I want to make my app a good free replacement for something like that.

    It's coming SOON(TM). Heck, you never know, there might even be a game added, like a Pictionary type one or something ...

    It at least means that it's on the table and I do want to add it eventually.

    Just a quick update on this app -
    https://twitter.com/xhp_creations/status/740256450396717061

    The program will be loading and saving PNG files, and will support all PNGs, including those with transparency, but only full transparency, it's not GX2 yet, so there isn't any partial transparency support yet. I hope to one day use GX2 graphics, but to re-program everything from framebuffer to GX2 will take some time. Every PNG it saves will be with no compression, for best quality, but it will load PNGs that do have compression, or use index palettes, but the image will be converted to RGB once loaded.
