as OP writes
Thank you, aus9. If there exist other things I can do with it, be sure to mention them.
1) Number of undoes and RAM amount
##################################
as eemaestro already knows how to use kb shortcuts to undo .....with CTRL + z, it may be important to remember that mtpaint on clean install does not know how much RAM you have.

pulldown image -> preferences or Ctrl + p

my tower has 8G and I rarely make mistakes LOL so don't need a lot of undoes

Image

2) changing from select mode to paint mode to select mode
#####################################################

when you first open mtpaint.....cursor is a + sign....................its in select mode (for cropping etc)
if you choose a brush kb shortcut F3......unless you have changed defauls in MX.....your cursor will show the shape of your new brush
if you have finished with a brush....CTRL + a......gets you back to select

3) mtpaint can convert image formats
##########################################

open target image
pulldown file -> save as
click on file format......choose file output format eg jpeg (for jpgeg there is option to degrade to less than 100%)
choose new-filename
click OK
good Luck from MX-16 user

Thank you, aus9, for the tips. I already tried the first one. I'll try the other two another day.
I appreciate that.
