paint.net 5.0 is now available!


Recommended Posts

Please note that I'm still working on updating the website as well as the updater for older (pre-v4.3) versions of Paint.NET.

 

Also note that the Microsoft Store release is still being certified, but should be available shortly. Update: it's live! :)

I had revive my old account in this forum just so I could come here and thank you for this update, I don't think I've been this excited to download something in a whole decade! I feel like a child again playing with Paint Dot Net for the first time, I seriously cannot wait to see what I'll be able to create in it from now on, I think this might be exactly what I was missing to be able to create fun stuff more frequently again <3 thank you thank you thank you and your collaborators!!!!!

I don't like the new Bilinear. I think it's broken.

When I scaled this striped 78x50 image by 50%, it produces a slightly blurred result (top) unlike the old Bilinear (bottom).

Here's another example, scaling an image with a checkerboard at the top and two sets of stripes underneath.

The old Bilinear result is correct: all pixels are R127, G127, B127. The new one has visible artifacts in the corners and sides.

It's obvious that the new Adaptive scaling method has some sort of edge sharpening pass.

Seriously? If I wanted my image sharpened, I would have used the effect.

@Khodyn, the old Bilinear, as noted above in the first post, is available as "Bilinear (Low Quality)". Let me talk to @saucecontrol to see what he knows about the other stuff.

I really don't think you should be calling this new Bilinear, Bilinear.

The old bilinear filter did not sample all pixels when downscaling -- it behaves more like a point filter with a 4px square window instead of 1.  A proper bilinear filter is expected to blur because that's the nature of linear resampling.

 

The Adaptive mode does use a sharpening kernel, because if you sample all input pixels, you must choose a balance between blurring and ringing.  Depending on resampling ratio, you'll get either a Catmull-Rom cubic filter or a 3-lobed spline filter that has the same visual characteristics.  You can read more about the math behind those filters here at https://legacy.imagemagick.org/Usage/filter/#cubics .  There is no "edge sharpening pass" -- the sharpening is part of the cubic resampling kernel.

Please add Windows Server 2016 support.

Hmm, it should work as long as you’re on v1809 or newer, but I don’t have Server 2016 for any testing. Have you tried installing and got an error? Or just assumed because the system requirements say Win10 or 11, and don’t mention Server 2016?

I installed the update but it appears to have uninstalled everything on my computer? Windows 10

 

Edit: Not files/any personal data (that I have seen), just most applications - Chrome, Google Earth, Steam, EA Origin, etc

 

Edit 2: It appears some of this stuff is still installed, just not appearing on the taskbar, or in the Start menu.

 

Edit 3: This is a known windows issue, not an issue with the update.
