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: January 3, 2023

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 4.3.12 (Released on August 20,  2022)

  • Fixed a bug when using Crop to Selection where the image would scroll away to the corner
  • Fixed a rendering bug in the brush tools that would cause some sections of the brush stroke to be rendered twice, making them darker
  • Added the PdnBaseForm.IsAppThemeDark property so that plugins with custom UI can more easily be dark theme aware
  • Fixed a rare crash in the rendering engine due to a race condition
  • Fixed a crash when using multiple monitors plugged into multiple GPUs from different manufacturers (e.g. AMD vs. NVIDIA), while moving the window between monitors (NotCurrentlyAvailableException)
  • Updated the bundled WebPFileType plugin to v1.3.14.0 (thanks @null54!). See its GitHub releases page for more info.
  • Updated the bundled AvifFileType to v1.1.20.0 (thanks @null54!). See its GitHub releases page for more info.
