Paint.NET Review

Paint.NET stands out from other photo editing programs by offering its Layers palette that makes working with layers easy. Users can quickly and efficiently add or subtract different elements from an image by manipulating these layers of content.

One significant limitation of this program is that text cannot be added to images; perhaps this needs to be addressed in future updates.

It’s free

Paint Net is a free and user-friendly image editing program for Windows that has evolved to become much more powerful over time. Initially designed as an alternative to Microsoft Paint software that comes preinstalled with your OS, this powerful program now serves as much more than that! At Photofram, it can easily compete with other digital image and photo editing programs, such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel Paint Shop Pro and the GIMP. With special effects such as blurring, sharpening, red eye removal and distortion – Photofram can provide users with everything needed for photo enhancement. It features an easy curve tool that makes drawing splines or Bezier curves easy, as well as animated GIF images (although another program will need to be used for animation purposes). Furthermore, this software is lightweight enough for multi-core devices.

It’s easy to use

Users can utilize its layers function to quickly create, duplicate, and customize various media elements within one image. A variety of pigments are included for coloring purposes while its layer properties window allows users to alter settings like hue, opacity and other options.

As well as painting, Photoshop Elements comes equipped with special effects filters that can enhance the appearance of photos. Unfortunately, however, they lack Polygonal and Magnetic Lasso functions found in its cousin programs, making them less user-friendly for cutting objects out of backgrounds.

Originating as an upgrade for Microsoft Paint software included with Windows, GIMP has grown into an immensely powerful yet user-friendly photo and image editor. It often receives comparisons to Adobe Photoshop, Corel Paint Shop Pro and The GIMP.
