Some Pinta tips (from a noob)

*If it can't access your 2nd hard drive, go to Settings/Applications/Pinta and turn on R/W removable media (click on user name, not Other Locations)

*If dialog boxes are stuck in the middle of the screen, go to Tweaks/Windows and turn off Attach Modal Dialogues

*Pinta has no smudge tool so just clone over sensitive information, which looks better anyway

*Reduce and crop before you sharpen so it happens in real time

*Pinta's Open Files has no thumbnails or previews so just drag files (even multiple) from your images folder

*Open a new Deskspace, bonk Pinta on one half of your screen and your images folder on the other. Then drag the divider so you have a good fit
