    There isn't anything else exactly like paint.net, but Krita comes the closest in terms of features and ease of use. It's relatively intuitive, has various customization options, and is sufficient for basic photo editing and more advanced image manipulation and drawing.

    Krita is also very similar to photoshop, and if you find the features easily enough and do enough research it has ALOT more features than paint.net while having the easy navigation that paint.net has. Also it's free!

    I was looking for a quick tool to combine multiple screenshots, for example. This succeeds with that but not as fast as with Paint.net. Good thing this is localized to many languages.

    Krita is built from the ground up for painting and drawing. Paint.net is for rapid image editing like making memes or cropping/adjusting photos. Krita is heavier and less intuitive.

    Krita is aimed at Artistic painting and sketching rather than photo manipulation and editing.
