Publisher’s description of Paint.NET

From dotPDN: #sab_trigger { background: url( ‘’ ) 100% 50% no-repeat; padding-right: 20px; }

dwImg = null; function dwTrack() { if(!dwImg) { var dwUrl = “” + escape(“” + Math.floor(Math.random()*1000)); dwUrl += “&edid=3”; dwUrl += “&oid=3000-2192_4-10782678”; dwUrl += “&onid=2192”; dwUrl += “&siteid=4”; dwUrl += “&ptid=3000”; dwUrl += “&lop=sat_bubble”; dwUrl += “&tag=sat_bubble”; dwImg = new Image; dwImg.src = dwUrl; } } var saBubble = new Class({ trigger: $E(‘.from-pub’), bubble: null, hiding: false, initialize: function(elem) { this.bubble = $(elem); this.bubble.setOpacity(0); this.bubble.setStyle(‘top’, this.trigger.offsetHeight + ‘px’); this.trigger.addEvent(‘mouseover’, function() {; dwTrack(); }.bind(this)); this.trigger.addEvent(‘mouseout’, function() { this.hide(); }.bind(this)); }, show: function() { $clear(this.hiding); this.bubble.setStyle(‘display’, ‘block’); this.bubble.effect(‘opacity’, {duration: 200}).start(1); this.hidden = false; }, hide: function() { this.hiding = this.close.delay(150, this); }, close: function() { this.chain(function() { this.bubble.effect(‘opacity’, {duration: 200}).start(0).chain(function() { this.callChain(); }.bind(this)); }.bind(this)); this.chain(function() { this.bubble.setStyle(‘display’, ‘none’); this.callChain(); }.bind(this)); this.callChain(); } }); saBubble.implement(new Chain); new saBubble(‘sab’);

Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software for computers that run Windows. It features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help, tutorials, and plug-ins.

Version 3.2 features ability to draw Fixed Ratio and Fixed Size selections with the Rectangle Select tool.

Editor’s review of Paint.NET

Don’t ‘shop it – Paint.NET it!

If all you want is a quick image retouch, Photoshop is overkill. Paint.NET, on the other hand, is an open-source freeware editor with all the essentials, including tools to crop, rotate, resize images, adjust colors, and create collages.

Paint.NET supports common image formats–JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, and others–but not high-resolution RAW files. There are enough basic and intermediate effects and features to keep image-tweakers happy, though the red-eye removal tool is notably weak; those images may require manual attention.

Unlike most free image editors, Paint.NET supports layers and has an actions manager. The pleasing interface boasts semitransparent windows for ease of use.

Version 3 fixes many old quibbles, including a convenient thumbnail manager for handling multiple image editing, and improved program graphics. Paint.NET is far more advanced than Microsoft Paint, and given its free price, it’s a must-have for anyone needing to fix images.
