Recommended Posts

First, check out the post for the first 5.0 alpha build to read about all the latest changes, additions, and fixes. There's a lot!

 

We're now at the beta stage for this release, which means 5.0 is feature complete, translations are complete, and all that's left is to squash any outstanding bugs. If you find any bugs it is very important for you to report them! Do not assume that a bug has already been noticed or will be fixed.

 

This build is available via the built-in updater as long as you have opted-in to pre-release updates. From within Settings -> Updates, enable "Also check for pre-release (beta) versions of paint.net" and then click on the Check Now button. You can also use the links below to download an offline installer or portable ZIP.

Changes

Here's what's been fixed or changed since the previous build (5.0 beta build 8389):

  • Fixed a crash in the Zoom tool when clicking outside of the image
  • Fixed a mouse cursor glitch when switching to many of the tools -- the correct cursor would not be shown until the mouse/pen/stylus moved at least 1 pixel
  • Added a link in the Effects menu to Settings -> Plugin Errors if there are any plugin load errors
  • Improved the error/crash experience for effect plugin, particularly for ones that use the GPU
  • Updated translations

Downloads

Download the installer here (for any supported CPU and OS). Offline installers, portable ZIPs, and deployable MSIs are available over on GitHub.

System Requirements

  • Windows 10 v1809+ or Windows 11
    • NOTE: Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1 are no longer supported.
  • 64-bit CPU and 64-bit version of Windows
    • Both Intel/AMD x64 and ARM64 are natively supported.
    • NOTE: 32-bit x86 is no longer supported.
  • Optional:
    • A pen or drawing tablet that supports Windows Ink
  • Recommended:
    • A CPU that supports AVX2, which includes most CPUs released since 2013.
      • Note that AVX2 is not required, but it helps performance, especially at app startup.
    • A discrete GPU such as an NVIDIA GeForce, AMD Radeon, or Intel Arc
      • or an AMD Radeon APU (a type of integrated GPU)
      • or an Intel Iris Plus or Iris Xe integrated GPU
    • The GPU must support Direct3D 11. Otherwise the CPU will be used for rendering, which will have poor performance.
    • An Intel CPU with an Intel "HD" or "UHD" iGPU works fine but will probably not show much, if any, performance improvement over previous versions of Paint.NET (which used the CPU for most rendering). The default quality used across the app (e.g. in distortion effects, and the Move Selected Pixels tool) will be automatically lowered to compensate.

Hey, I'm not sure if this is the right place to report a bug, but I noticed that if a gradient has a transparent background and you hue-shift it, instead of shifting to the colour it should be on, it shifts into lots of different colours. While I do think it looks cool, I'm certain it must be a bug, and I'm betting many people might be having the same issue. If this is a bug, then I'm surprised it hasn't been reported yet. An image has been attached showing what happens with a transparent background (above) compared to what happens with a filled background (below).

@TerraTerrawhat do you mean by “hue shifted”? Can you provide a list of step by step instructions to reproduce the issue, listing exactly which actions you’re taking in the app?

 

Also please post the diagnostics info from Settings -> Diagnostics -> Copy to Clipboard. I have an idea what this could be caused by …

1. Fill the background with a non grey colour.
2. Make a transparency gradient with the gradient tool.
3. Adjustments/Hue/Saturation... shift Hue... Rainbow!

Just tested on portable a5.0.8361.33457 (not the latest, sorry)
Does not happen using 4.3.12

Yup that repros for me on this latest build (8395). Thanks! Kind of a neat effect though 😂

Okay I've got it fixed for the next update. It was just a mix-up with straight alpha vs. premultiplied alpha. This will also fix any of @BoltBait's new effects that are making use of PdnHueSaturationLightnessEffect.
