    "Good software but I changed to Mybrushes"

    February 26, 2015  |   By kmoim8o

    Version: Paint.NET 4.0.5

    Pros

    I upgrade my compurter to Mac so I changed to MyBrushes that is an alternative app to MS paint on Mac.The whole drawing process could be saved as drawing video and playback anytime. http://mybrushes-app.com/MyBrushes-MAC.html

    Cons

    should be more powerful

    "It's a fast program for basic photo editing."

    February 25, 2015  |   By waterrat2

    Version: Paint.NET 4.0.5

    Pros

    The price (duh). It's much better than Paint (from MS) but it's been so long since I've compared them, I don't remember why. Works easily with multiple pictures and when adding text. Mostly I use it for quick sizing and cropping. Changing the canvas size and pasting together screen shots for printing (or when one screen shot isn't big enough) it works fast and easy.

    Cons

    I can't find a way to make small tilts. It just goes 90 or 180 degrees. I also haven't found a user help site or place that users can share tips.

    "The best fastest image editor ever!"

    February 6, 2015  |   By Andrew.Y.96

    Version: Paint.NET 4.0.5

    Pros

    I really enjoy using Paint.NET for it's simplicity and ease of use, whilst still empowering lots of features that I need!

    Cons

    It could be a little more improved with some features expanded and/or additional editing tools. I come from using CS2 so obviously this is pretty darn good for being free.

    Summary

    Even though I usually use CS2, I like this program because it loads up a lot quicker and it also results in faster edits when I have a lot of photos.

    Paint.net is quick and flexible, great for posters and drawings without the unwieldy size and time consuming loading times.

    It does not work on a mac.

    Summary

    I wish it did.

    "Awesome Program"

    January 21, 2015  |  

    Version: Paint.NET 4.0.5

    Pros

    Its scalable for one thing, also, of course the price. I like the way that I can understand the commands and know what everything does that I install on it without it being complicated and hard to find, the stuff that I am lookin for to use. There is way more support online than most that I have found. Plugins are easily installed as well.

    Cons

    I have to come here to download it instead of finding its website for one thing. There isn't too much that I don't love about this program.

    Summary

    This is one of the best programs for free that I have found. At first I was told that it was a rough program etc, but I have found absolutely nothing about this program that I wouldn't put up against some of the expensive programs out there.

    "It's better than Paint is."

    January 18, 2015  |   By Michael69101

    Version: Paint.NET 4.0.5

    Pros

    I like how you can use layers and can open more than one file to work with since I like to mess with my photos or online photos.

    Cons

    It doesn't keep the selection outline that you copy or selected.

    Summary

    It's a good program and it does have more tools to work with then Paint dose.

    "Installs Malware"

    January 8, 2015  |   By RandyStimpson

    Version: Paint.NET 4.0.5

    Pros

    I have used this software in the past and it was great. 5 stars great,

    Cons

    One of my kids installed it on their computer and blindly accepted all the requests to install a bunch of malware which resulted in an infestation of viruses including password stealers and bunch of other nasty stuff. I spent 2 days trying to clear them before I gave up and just reinstalled the Windows 7.
