So…What is Paint.NET?

This is a free tool for Windows that allows users to manipulate images.

Don’t get this tool confused with the Paint utility that ships with Windows, this is so much more. It includes features such as layering, special effects and unlimited undo history. Paint.NET has also been designed with the beginner in mind, so should be easier to pick up than the likes of Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter Pro.

How do I get Started with Paint.NET?
  1. Go to http://www.getpaint.net/download.html
  2. Check the system requirements before downloading as this application is processor hungry and can use up a lot of your hard-disk space.
  3. Download and Install.
What Will it Cost Me?

Paint.Net is a free image and photo editing software package.

What platform is it available on?

Sorry Mac users, this one is just for Windows.
