Life before the selection tool!

I just loaded up DPAINT IV after not using it for at least 22 years to try my hand at some old school graphics.

Holy shit, how did people survive without a selection tool back then?

I don't remember it being this fiddly back in the early 90's when I used to make my own sprite graphics and animations but it's great fun nonetheless.

I guess I'm so used to Paint Shop Pro now.

It's amazing the things we take for granted these days!

And there is even a spare page where you can store different versions during experimentation.

The select (pick up brush) tool was already there in DPaint 1 :-D
