paint.net 5.0.6 is now available!


Recommended Posts

This is a small update that improves the sharpness of the canvas, and fixes a few other small issues.

Get the Update

There are two releases of Paint.NET:

  • Microsoft Store release (recommended)
  • Classic Desktop release
    • Download the installer from the website. This is the recommended download if you don't have Paint.NET installed. It can also be used to update the app.
    • If you already have it installed, you should be offered the update automatically within the next few days, but you can also get it immediately by going to ⚙ Settings -> Updates -> Check Now.
    • Offline Installers and Portable ZIPs are available over on GitHub.

Change Log

Changes since v5.0.5:

  • Improved the sharpness of the canvas, which had gotten too blurry in 5.0.4 in some cases
  • Added a "reset to default" button for Image->Resize's Resampling option
  • Fixed a rendering artifact on the canvas where sometimes the transparency checkerboard would be visible at the bottom pixel of an image when it shouldn't be
  • Fixed a glitch with the canvas zoom slider where it would draw the tracking thumb at the wrong position when the zoom level was at 10,000%
  • Fixed a rare hang that could happen when opening an image

Don't know if you care or not. I would understand if you didn't. The wand fails to select the color white alone when there are light blue pixels in the image. I tried every combination of lowest/highest tolerance with premultiplied/straight. Same thing. The odd thing is that I had success with three prior images. So the bug may not be easily reproducible.

 

The app is horribly slow, too. It's almost unusable. If I had paid more for this app I'd demand a refund. But screw it. You obviously put a lot of work into it.

 

It's just disappointing. I'll have to find another painting app if these problems cannot be solved.

Why are the download sites filled with misleading links?

 

The link above for the Windows release goes to https://getpaint.net/.

 

From there, one must navigate around the fake download links to https://www.dotpdn.com/downloads/pdn.html#google_vignette

 

Then on that page, the download is ultimately here: https://github.com/paintdotnet/release/releases/download/v5.0.6/paint.net.5.0.6.install.anycpu.web.zip

 

Is it too much bandwidth to have the files here? Or is it a liability issue?

 

Typically, I never notice it; I simply update the app. Sometimes, like now, I need to install it on a work PC or install it on a colleague's machine. All of the fake download links make it look suspect.

Those are from 3rd party advertisers trying to get a quick buck, really. Often, these are out of our control. Meaning there's not much we can do about it.

The real download links should look like this:

A lot of advice goes around about avoiding "clicking those big green buttons", which are often the visual that a lot of adware uses to lure in users. Basically, don't get distracted by the other buttons, and only focus on download links I showed you.

I hope this helps.
