Paint.NET has been my favorite image editing tool for years. And after ages long development cycle (lets face it, it’s developed by a single person as far as I remember, so I’m not gonna blame them for that). Interface wise it hasn’t change much and if I’m honest, there is no need for that. But it has gained few extra settings, a bit re-arranged GUI and many under the hood features like GPU hardware acceleration for effects. And best of all, it’s free. If you don’t need all the features of Adobe Photoshop, but you need a capable image editing power tool, this is it. It’s simple to use, has all the features average or even power user will need and it just works. And I love it because of that. It’s a must have app for any PC.
