Paint.NET is a free image editor for Windows with support for layers, access to a variety of effects and filters the nd possibility of unlimited undo for changes. Paint.NET uses a tabbed interface. The tabs display a live thumbnail of all opened images instead of a text description. This makes navigation fast.
The editor provides all the necessary tools for image editing including an easy-to-use curve tool for drawing splines or Bezier curves. The Gradient tool has been cited as an innovative improvement over similar tools provided by other software. The facilities for creating and working with selections is powerful, yet still simple enough to be picked up quickly. Other powerful tools include the Magic Wand for selecting regions of similar color and the Clone Stamp for copying or erasing portions of an image.
Many special effects offered by Paint.NET are included for enhancing and perfecting your images. Everything from blurring, sharpening, red-eye removal, distortion, noise, and embossing are included. Also included is our unique 3D Rotate/Zoom effect that makes it very easy to add perspective and tilting. The program supports file formats including PNG, JPEG, BMP, GIF, TGA, and TIFF. All projects you can save to the native format of PDN, which preserves the structure of the layers and created effects.
