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.

Last Updated: March 8, 2022

Latest news: Updated the changelog.

The difference between Paint.Net and Gimp is the learning curve. Paint.Net is very simple and easy to learn software. It is very similar to Windows Ms Paint. If you use Ms Paint then you will love because it was a project developed with the intention to replace Ms paint. It never replaced MS Paint but the developers decided to release it for free to the online community with the option to donate if you wish.

Latest version Paint.NET 4.3.8 (Released on February 16,  2022)

  • New: Layers -> Toggle Layer Visibility menu command (keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + comma)
  • Greatly improved performance for the Line/Curve and Shapes tools
  • Improved performance for the Move Selected Pixels tool when using Bicubic resampling
  • Fixed tooltips not going away when menu items are activated by the keyboard (Effects, Adjustments, and File -> Open Recent)
  • Added a FolderChooser control type for IndirectUI-based plugins (thanks @toe_head2001!)
  • Fixed compatibility for Ed Harvey’s FastFX PencilSketch effect plugin
  • Fixed a performance bug in the canvas renderer that was causing tiles to be copied to the GPU more often than necessary. This mostly affected performance when drawing or modifying selections, and when scrolling or zooming.
  • Fixed a small memory leak with the allocations made for Win32 synchronization primitives (critical sections and condition variables)
  • Updated the bundled AvifFileType plugin to verison, which fixes some issues with EXIF metadata handling. (thanks @null54!)
  • Updated the bundled WebPFileType plugin to version, which fixes some issues with EXIF metadata handling. (thanks @null54!)
  • Updated the bundled DDSFileTypePlus plugin to version, which adds support for DXGI_FORMAT_R32_FLOAT. This is used by Bethesda’s Creation Kit for Fallout 4. (thanks @null54!)
