free alternative to Photoshop
Works great, easy to use, lots of features, can disable antialiasing when working with really low resolution images
I’m a fan of paint.net because it’s free and easy.
not a perfect program, but really great)
Good alternative to Gimp and Adobe Photoshop
I like the "move selected pixels" and "move selection" feature, I find only Paint.Net has them both.
SO easy to use!
Packs all the day-to-day features in a simple to use design - things are where you'd expect them to be!
It's like MS paint but with everything we wish it had
Unlike GIMP, Paint.NET is actually easy to use because stuff is actually where you expect it to be!
Great program overall. If you want a free image editor, it is this and only this.
Paint.net is great not because of all of it's advanced features but because it is easy to use and produces good results. It reminds me a bit of Photoshop but a much more stripped down version. And it's much cheaper than Photoshop! Takes up less room on the computer as well. I highly recommend it.
Paint.net is easy and simple to use, unlike other image editing programs, which require guides and tutorials (coughPhotoshopcough). If you know how to use MS Paint, you will get the hang of Paint.net in less than half an hour. It's way better than bare-bone MS Paint in nearly every single aspect, too.
Easy To Use!
Its A Bit Simple In Some Ways. But If Your Looking For A Bit Simpler Editor Than Photoshop. You Can Work With Paint.net
should be on top!
simple yet powerful.
gr8 online community and support.
great except for software author's attitude
You don't have to go on the forums, you know.
Paint.NET is a useful program for anyone wanting to learn the art of photo editing, regardless of how much expertise you want to attain. For those who are looking for an easy-to-use program to add a few effects to their images, Paint.NET will have them covered.
The interface is simple to understand, and it feels like an upgraded version of Microsoft Paint. Indeed, when one pokes around the options, there will be more than enough choices for the average user to use. For others who want even more power from this software, plugins are available on its website and forum.
It is not quite as powerful as, say, Photoshop or GIMP, but it will be good enough for people who enjoy casual photo editing.
I knocked off a star for the following reasons:
