    Before you free download Paint.NET for your PC or laptop from official website, we are advising to learn its features and see what's new in the latest version.

    Program overview

     Unlike the standard Microsoft Paint, in the Paint.NET you can apply special effects to the photos, you can work with layers, make corrections over the images, using different tools, import photos from scanner and camera, and also you can connect various plug-ins in order to expand the functionality of the program.

     System requirements

    • Operating system: Windows 10, 8 (8.1), 7, Vista or Windows XP (32-bit & 64-bit).
    • Availability of the .NET Framework version 4.5. If it is missing, the editor will automatically install it.

    Features of the program

     Supported formats

    • Changing the image size and canvas with or without saving its proportions.
    • Select an arbitrary area (rectangular, oval, lasso) or areas with the same color,  using the "magic wand".
    • Cutting, copying and clearing the selected area.
    • Add, edit and merge the layers with a certain opacity and blending mode. Layers – are miniatures of the image, the complete image can be obtained once you have combined all layers.
    • Correction of colors: invert, adjust the brightness and contrast of the image. You can also change the coarsening, hue and saturation, convert a color image to black and white or light brown color scheme, leveling layers, if the picture is too light or dark.
    • The use of special effects to your photos: distortion, blur, noise reduction, removing the effect of "red eye", changing of the sharpness of image, art effects (sketching ink, pencil or oil), sterilization, add patterns.
    • Insert the text.
    • Image rotation. For example, horizontal or clockwise by 90 °.
