I'm wondering where the old "invert colors" feature from MS Paint has gone. My new version of MS Paint 6.1 doesn't seem to have this feature?

    I believe the shortcut still is Ctrl+I or Ctrl+Shft+I Apr 2, 2014 at 19:59

Actually, the option still exists, but it's not found on the ribbon. You can only find it when right-clicking an image:


The result:

Everything inverted

If you select everything or nothing, the entire image is inverted. Else, only the selection gets inverted:

Rightclick on selection

The result:

Partial inversion


You can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+I.
