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: November 7, 2019

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.

Latest version Paint.NET 4.2.5 (Released on October 1,  2019)

  • New: WebP images are now supported due to bundling @null54’s excellent WebPFileType plugin (v1.3.0.0)
  • Fixed: Pasting images from Firefox’s “Take a Screenshot” feature was resulting in swapped red and blue channels due to mishandling of DIB_V5 clipboard data using the BI_RGB value for bV5Compression (thanks @null54 for the fix!)
  • Fixed crash at startup (for both app and installer) on Windows “N” editions due to missing mfplat.dll (Media Foundation Platform)
  • Updated bundled DDSFileTypePlus plugin to v1.9.7.0
