I have been following Paint Net Image Editor which is becoming a very powerful image editor just like Gimp and Photoshop but free like Gimp. The difference between Paint.Net and Gimp is the learning curve. Paint.Net is very simple and easy to learn software. It has many similarities to Ms Paint found in windows environment. If you use Ms Paint then you will love because it was a project that was developed with the intention to replace Ms paint.

Latest news: I have updated the changelog. 

Latest version Paint.NET 4.0.7 and 4.0.8 (Released on December 30,  2015)

  • Changed: .NET Framework 4.6 is now required, and will be installed if necessary
  • New: Swedish translation
  • Fixed: Title bar now uses the Windows 10 accent color
  • Fixed: Floating windows were not remembering their locations on some non-English systems
  • Improved: Performance of “committing” (finishing) is now up to 10x faster, which greatly improves responsivness for quick drawing operations
