Editors' Review

+

Paint.NET is a full-featured image editing program that gives you tons of tools to work with through an intuitive and streamlined interface. Whether you just want to touch-up your photos before you share them with friends or you need high-quality images for another type of project, this program will get you where you need to go.

Pros

Nice interface: This app presents all of the tools you need to create beautiful images in a clean and accessible way. Many of these are arrayed around the main working window, while others are contained within their own windows, which you can reposition anywhere on the screen to clear the space you want to work in.

Lots of tools: Whether your project involves adding layers, introducing text, or using filters and effects to get the look you're going for, you'll find what you need in this program. There are more options in all of these categories than you'll probably ever use, giving you the ability to create just about anything you could imagine.

Cons

No extremes: This program is a good option for intermediate users. It isn't quite accessible enough to make it the right choice for users who have no experience with photo editing programs, and it doesn't offer all of the advanced features that experienced users will be looking for.

Layers for text: While this app does let you introduce text into your images, you have to create it in a separate layer if you want to be able to move it around or experiment with it as you work. This may not be a huge inconvenience, but it does add an extra step to a lot of projects.

Bottom Line

Paint.NET has a lot to offer when it comes to editing and enhancing images for a variety of purposes. It's a free app that provides nearly as much functionality as some of the more highly rated image editing programs and makes these features available to everyone.

What's new in version 4.0.10
  • The canvas may now be scrolled past the edge of the image
  • When holding the spacebar, you may scroll using the keyboard arrow keys (in addition to click-and-drag panning). Holding Ctrl will scroll at 10x the rate.
  • You can now hold Ctrl+Shift while clicking on the floating window icons in order to reset their location and docking. Ctrl+Shift along with the appropriate hotkey (F5, F6, F7, F8) also does the trick.
  • The rate of auto-scrolling, which triggers when the mouse is at the canvas edge and a button is being held down, has been improved and is based on time instead of frames
  • Fixed Size selection drawing now defaults to 400x300 pixels instead of 4x3 inches
  • Tooltips for Custom Shapes now include their file system location
  • Edit->Invert Selection should perform much faster when used with unmodified selections from the Magic Wand tool
  • When running within VMWare, "Hardware accelerated rendering" is disabled by default (Microsoft's WARP is faster than VMWare's D3D emulation)
