PAINT.net photo editor
PAINT.NET is a free photo editor for PC for Windows, although it has nothing to do with the lifelong Paint that comes pre-installed in this operating system.
In this case, PAINT.NET has multiple tools, settings and effects under a simple interface that make this photo editor extremely easy to use but with remarkable effectiveness and more than enough if we are not going to use it strictly professionally.
PAINT.net is only available for Windows. It can be downloaded from the web "getpaint.net" for free or through the Microsoft Store.
If we choose to download the paid version we will not have any problems and we will be supporting the development of this program.
If we want to obtain the free version we must access its website, although there are many links and advertising. In the upper box you can directly access the page where the download links are in their latest version directly.
We can highlight the following features:
- Very light download (8.5MB) and use of very few resources of our computer
- Interface similar to the preinstalled Windows Paint, which greatly facilitates its use.
- Effective tools, with good variety and well organized
- Very active forum, you can download a multitude of free addons to add functions to the editor
- Constant updates
- Very remarkable results in a short time.
If we open the program we find an interface that gives an air to the preinstalled Windows Paint, but that nothing has to see, since it offers many more possibilities. In PAINT.net we will find effects of all kinds, color adjustments, brightness, whites and blacks and even automatic adjustment tools.
In the upper part we find the main menu, which allows us, in addition to making adjustments, to perform the basic options of almost any program such as print or save.
In this menu we also find basic image settings, which will allow us to flip, crop, or edit image size and canvas.
If we continue navigating through the top menu we find already the most interesting tabs: Layers, Effects and Settings. These two tabs will display a lot of photo editing tools and allow us to work in layers.
If you look at the upper right corner, you will find a series of options to activate tables functions on the screen, such as history, the box to select layers or the box selection of colors, which is also quite interesting.
Finally on the left we have another box with basic selection tools, brushes or texts, among others.
PAINT.net is a good photo editor for amateurs. With this editor we can perform good jobs in a short time without the need for powerful computers or have an Internet connection.
