REVIEW

Paint.NET is open-source software for editing images and photos in Windows. It is a great alternative to Paint because of unlimited undo commands, image effects, layer support and various tools.

Paint.NET now has a strong community involved in providing help and tips, as well as tutorials on how to utilize the powerful features of this software.

Paint.NET has been compared to some of the best commercial photo editing software like Corel Paint Shop Pro, Adobe Photoshop and the open-source software GIMP.

Paint.NET is very simple and easy to use, and it is specially designed to be learned through intuition without assistance or manuals. For multiple images, Paint.NET employs the tabbed document interface where the tabs show a live thumbnail in place of a text. These thumbnails make it easy for users to see which images they need to open at a glance.

Unlike your usual Paint, Paint.NET offers layer support – just like what you usually see in other image editing software. This makes it easy for users to make image compositions, arrange transparencies, and stack them together to make one image.

If there’s a new version available for download, Paint.NET automatically updates your version – typically with only a couple of mouse clicks.

It also has a number of special effects to enhance and edit your images. The usual blurring, sharpening and red-eye removal can be used, as well as some 3D Rotate/Zoom effects. You can also adjust the levels of brightness, contrast, hue, levels, saturation and curves.

And unlike Paint, Paint.NET has unlimited history so you can keep on pressing that CTRL+Z again and again and again.

Paint.NET is currently available for Windows only.

Minimum System

  • Windows 7 (recommended), Windows XP SP2, or Windows Vista
  • 800MHz processor (dual-core recommended)
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 1024 x 768 screen resolution
  • 200+ MB hard drive space
  • Optional: 64-bit mode requires a 64-bit CPU and a 64-bit edition of Windows
