Editors' Review

+

If all you want is a quick image retouch, Photoshop is overkill. Paint.NET, on the other hand, is an open-source freeware editor with all the essentials, including tools to crop, rotate, resize images, adjust colors, and create collages.

Paint.NET supports common image formats--JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, and others--but not high-resolution RAW files. There are enough basic and intermediate effects and features to keep image-tweakers happy, though the red-eye removal tool is notably weak; those images may require manual attention.

Unlike most free image editors, Paint.NET supports layers and has an actions manager. The pleasing interface boasts semitransparent windows for ease of use.

Version 3 fixes many old quibbles, including a convenient thumbnail manager for handling multiple image editing, and improved program graphics. Paint.NET is far more advanced than Microsoft Paint, and given its free price, it's a must-have for anyone needing to fix images.

"great!!!"

April 23, 2008  |  By louman333

 |  Version: Paint NET 3.22

Pros

It is simple and it give the "amature photo" guy or gal just enough tools to have fun and save a photo of the kids where the "dogs" tail is in the Picture... laugh... clone tool, and its gone... may not be perfect, but its looks good printed and framed. It really is simple and gives you just enough to feel like you have some control over your photo's.

Cons

cant think of anything.

"You can control options [0-100%]"

April 19, 2008  |  By preston3934

 |  Version: Paint NET 3.22

Pros

This one of the few programs where you can control options [0-100%]. Other programs are decided for you [like the intensity of the magic wand tool].

Cons

Poor documentation...trial and error?

"find it difficult to use"

April 18, 2008  |  By art07

 |  Version: Paint NET 3.22

Pros

seems to have some interesting effects that you can use,

Cons

I just don't seem to be able to edit things and find it difficult to get things to work.

It offered a lot of promise, it may just be me but I don't find it user friendly for novices - and I can't find the help I require to sort it out.
