Paint.NET 4.0.5


You have the ability to edit your photos in a lot of ways with Paint.NET, as the main screen is not only full of tools but it also has a lot of instrument screens which include additional conversion options. The main window of the app also has a lot of tabs that add new instruments, like Edit, View, Object, Layers and others, as all of them have various tools that increase the understanding that this is one program that counts on a number of functions. But there is one tab that offers even more tools – Effects has so many instruments, that at the end none of them have a shortcut, which would have filled your keyboard to the max. So if you want to add effects you have to use the tabs.

Basic Operations

The number of tools is somewhat an issue, because Paint.NET has fewer instruments than most of the apps in its class. But if you look at it another way, you don't have to spend a lot of time learning all of its functions and it will be easier for you to try and learn each one of them. But every tool that we've tried worked without problems, so if you don't need to do too complicated image editing then this app is for you.


If you want to use a free program with more tools we can recommend GIMP which is also free and has more instruments, but that makes it more complicated than Paint.NET. However its latest version has more functions than ever. Please do not hesitate to give it a try. Only then can you weigh up. We look forward to your feedback.
