Paid for the software, still incredibly laggy


Recommended Posts

Can you post your Hardware specs as reported by paint.net?

Do you have extra "security" or gaming software running on your computer at the same time as paint.net?

There's this annoying lag whenever I try to draw a line, especially a small one.

You're saying the lag is worse for a small line than it is for a large line?

Yeah, paying for something doesn't magically make it work better. Welcome to the school of hard knocks.

This is basically the slowest processor you can buy.  I think that may be your problem.

 

I think it is time to upgrade your hardware.

 

If you look at paint.net's hardware requirements: https://www.getpaint.net/download.html

 

You'll see that what you have is the absolute minimum required to run the software.  This is not the minimum required to have a good experience, just the minimum required just to run it.

Hey NewStartKiller, not sure what tablet you have - but I've seen issues (specifically with Paint.NET) related to tablet drivers which support TabletPC mode. If there is an option to disable that through the tablet interface, give that a shot. Specifically, it works for HUION H610 Pro and likely other models.

 

Photoshop doesn't seem to have this hiccup - but I'm sure their handling of tablets is wholly different. Good luck.

Try turning off hardware-accelerated rendering. Open Paint.net, click the gear icon on the far top-right of the window. The first checkbox in the dialog that pops up will be Hardware Accelerated Rendering (GPU). Try turning that off and restart Paint.net to see if it improves performance.

 

I did this with an old computer for Paint.net once.
