Portable Paint.NET 4.2.14 Multilanguage (x64)
Paint.NET is free image editing and photo manipulation software designed to be used on computers that run Windows. It supports layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. It started development as an undergraduate college senior design project mentored by Microsoft, and is currently being maintained by some of the alumni that originally worked on it. Originally intended as a free replacement for the MS Paint software that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful yet simple tool for photo and image editing. The programming language used to create Paint.NET is C#, with a small amount of C++ for installation and shell-integration related functionality.
Paint.NET can be used to enhance and clean up your photographs. Using the Clone Stamp tool, the power lines that criss-crossed in front of the Space Needle were carefully removed. Other operations were performed that had the effect of smoothing out theimage without blurring it, adding some “bloom” (glow), and increasing the contrast.
Structured GUI and creating file associations
Users are met with a clean and well-organized interface, which requires some getting used to in order to operate it successfully.
File associations can be easily made, thus making paint.net the default software for opening and, subsequently editing graphic files on the computer. It should be mentioned that even if it is not the default app, all supported formats can still be processed from within the main window of the application.
Options you can take advantage of and tweak
Novices surely appreciate the multitude of buttons that can perform both basic functions like cut, crop or rotate, as well as more advanced ones as color picking, clone stamping or inserting a new layer.
One of the features experts find especially handy is the full keyboard support, meaning that all actions can be completed by pressing dedicated hotkeys, thus reducing the time it would take locating the appropriate menu or button.
Experimenting with the menus reveal additional adjustments and effects which can be applied to enhance any artistic project: layer editing, invert colors, posterize, image sketch, blur or sharpen, distort, emboss or even fractals.
Simple, intuitive, and innovative user interface
Every feature and user interface element was designed to be immediately intuitive and quickly learnable without assistance. In order to handle multiple images easily, Paint.NET uses a tabbed document interface. The tabs display a live thumbnail of theimage instead of a text description. This makes navigation very simple and fast.
Usually only found on expensive or complicated professional software, layers form the basis for a rich image composition experience. You may think of them as a stack of transparency slides that, when viewed together at the same time, form oneimage.
