Paint.NET 3.22

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.


  • New: "Reduce Noise" effect
  • Changed: Ctrl+W will now close Paint.NET if zero images are open
  • Fixed: In Windows XP, when launching web content, sometimes Internet Explorer was used instead of the user's chosen default browser
  • Fixed: The Unfocus effect was not handling alpha values properly
  • Fixed: The Brightness / Contrast adjustment was only displaying its text in English
  • Fixed: The /auto parameter for the installer now correctly allows for an automated installation. This was inadvertently broken in 3.20

Reduce noise? Duh... I think I'm gonna wait for 4.0 then. I need more features. :]
(Currently toggling between PSPXI and The GIMP...)

Though I like that "light" attitude... but adding the .net framework, well...

What amazes me even more is that it is like only two megs!

You can pack an awful lot of functionality in a small EXE when you have a huge runtime library at your disposal.

"Dont hold your breath, thanks to *******s it may be a 'paid' program soon??"

What are you talking about? That blog post says nothing of the sort. (I should know, because I wrote it).
