    • GIMP is really complicated and not a real alternative. It has way more than nedeed for most of the users. Paint.NET is really simple to use and has just enough functionality to be useful for an advanced (but not professional) user. Guest • Jul 2017 • 6 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • GIMP is a superb cross-platform (Win, Mac, Linux) alternative to Paint.NET because it's open source and has a huge range of functionality. It is less suited for those situations where you're seeking a very simple image editor, without fuss. But it's still cross-platform, which Paint.NET isn't. So it depends what "alternative" means to you. JohnFastmanJan 2017 • 14 agrees and 15 disagrees Disagree   Agree
