Paint.NET is simply one of the best free image editing programs available today. We have been using Paint.NET for years. Sure we use Photoshop, but for quick and easy image editing we use Paint.NET. Even the beginner will find the interface is user friendly and intuitive. Within minutes you will be editing your digital photos with ease.
Paint.NET has a fairly impressive array of features for a free image editor. We found the most impressive feature to be the layering capability that honestly is usually only found in software that is about the price of a used car. Paint.NET also includes your standard tools for drawing, advanced tools for special effects, red-eye removal and an impressive array of image adjustment tools.
Other unique features we found in Paint.NET include, an unlimited history record allowing you to step back and fix mistakes. Automatic software updates, allowing you to update Paint.NET right from the program, bypassing the need to download the program directly.
The Paint.NET download weighs in at just 3MB and the installation was seamless. We tested out Paint.NET on Windows XP and Windows 7 and did not experience any problems. One of the great things about Paint.NET is the active community that supports it. Everything from a vibrant forum to free tutorials can be found to help the user along.
