Drawing small graphics in Windows
October 21, 2011 12:35 PM   Subscribe

What do you use to make quick little drawings in Windows?

I love OneNote for taking notes, in and out of class, but I have to make a lot of charts (think an axis with a few lines, nothing precise).

The built in graphics in OneNote is miserable. Much worse than Word for example. Much. It would be nice to have a small, free, simple program I could use to make little graphics and then copy and paste those to my heart's content.

I use Paint.NET pretty much daily for stuff like this!

I'm using Powerpoint for simple chart-like graphics.

Um, mspaint or Paint.Net, whichever shows up fastest in my Start menu search thingy.

It's been ages since I've used any of these, but check out Paint.net, Inkscape, or IrfanView. All are freeware.
