Not that I know of for free.  This one is pretty simple to use.  What I did is saved my GRE image as a gif and then opened it in Front Painter.  I just made this one for my message board:

I know there are a couple different "FrontPainters".  Which one are you using? Is it the one in the link above?  There's another that's a shareware but I think you have to pay about $20 for it...don't know much about it however.

I believe so; it is listed on Weathergraphics as freeware at the link below:

http://www.weathergraphics.com/dl/

I just load a map from GREarth or wherever (I use the background maps), and then just draw the maps in the program and save it. It works pretty nicely for me. Weatherstudio 3 is offering a front drawer within the program that automatically plots fronts if you're interested in that.

In addition, do you use RAOB? I've been looking for some reviews on that piece of software, with little luck.

Hello Gang here is the link for Front Painter for the weather. Vershion 2.0, I looked every were for this. I finnaly found this. Its not what I am looking for as I was looking for  what weathermen use as in soft ware to put in the 7 day fore cast sunny skies temps and extra. Hope people like this one its a goody.  http://www.weathergraphics.com/dl/frontpainter.exe

I think posting a link directly to an executible is not a very safe thing. That could have led to an immediate hijack or one of those bitlocker ransomware situations. The link would have better if it had ended at the download page. Over the years there have been some that have joined here only to be found to not have good intentions. Someone like that could post a link to an executible that could be disastrous.

Sorry. I am on my tablet and am having some kind allergy attack. Eyes don't want to focus too well...😁

Still a good point for all not to post a link to an executible.
