32-bit images can often be a complicated process, but NeoPaint's excellent alpha channel handling makes the process straightforward and painless. In case you're wondering, an alpha channel is a special mask used to identify which portions of a picture should be transparent (see through) and which portions should be opaque (solid).

NeoPaint's integrated screen capture utility, NeoGrab, is an extremely useful tool for creating manuals, training materials, newsletters, websites and more. Captured images are automatically transferred to NeoPaint for editing, cropping, saving, etc.

Users reviews & testimonials

Thank you very much. It worked and I am up and running. I make a living on Ebay and use NeoPaint every day to prepare my graphics. I'm a very satisfied customer.


Just wanted to give you a thumbs up on NeoPaint 4.7. I needed something better than MS Paint, but didn't want to spend a lot of money. I checked out half a dozen shareware image and paint apps today. NeoPaint 4.7 was by far the easiest to work with and the most useful. The others had strange interfaces or other problems. But NeoPaint was easy to understand and I was able to get right to work and cleaned up 15 images and put them in a 25 page document. You guys are the greatest!


All I can say regarding NeoPaint v4.7b is, "Bravo!" again and again. I've been a registered user since the earliest versions of NeoPaint for DOS. You've never disappointed me for quality, function, and tech support. Thank you so much, and please, keep up the great work.


This is the type of customer service that I get so rarely that I marvel at it. I have always been a happy NeoPaint user, and still consider it my primary graphics program.


I just wanted to say that out of all the art software I've tested or purchased - yours [NeoPaint] is the BEST! It is user friendly with so many wonderful tricks and special features that it is well worth the money I paid for it!

Thank you for putting out a superior product at an affordable price.
