Paint.NET is a powerful, easy-to-use image editor that offers features similar to those that you’ll find in Adobe Photoshop and GIMP.
Paint.NET features layers, enabling you to edit specific areas of your image, or build up an image from a number of different sections.
There are also options to adjust an image's brightness, hue, contrast, curves, saturation and levels, not mention an array of special effects that can blur, sharpen, distort, emboss and remove that pesky red-eye effect from your photos with a few clicks. There’s a Gradient tool too, a simple text editor, a powerful zoom function, and even a Clone Stamp tool to help you clean up grainy photos.
Better still, every change made in Paint.Net is recorded in the software’s unlimited history log. This makes it much easier to undo any alterations which were made to an image.
If that's not enough, you can extend Paint.NET with downloadable extensions. The only limit is your creativity.
Version 4.0, released 8 July 2016, is a comprehensive updates that includes a new rendering engine with support for multiple cores. The interface has been improved and many bugs have been fixed.
