What do YOU use Paint.Net for?

Recommended Posts


I thought I'd just ask what primary usage of Paint.Net do you use it for?

(Keep it brief please and on target)



I use it at work to edit screen-shots, removing patient identifiable data, mostly for teaching etc.

I work for the British Health Service (NHS) and they are too cheap to buy a proper graphics program

but stipulate it anyhow and MS paint is just awful for the task.

I use Wink to make guided tutorials with the results. (Wink Forum Moderator)


Produce and label detailed maps often overlaid on a Google map for family and friends (lots of travelling)

and screenshots of PC tricks for Noobs.

I am noobie friendly

Since the day I found this program (4/1/10), I have just been using it to test out tutorials, practice and build my skill. Mainly I make things revolved around space/sci-fi/modern (clean) looking, but I sometimes go out there and make something unique to my style. You will notice in a lot of my sigs I use a lot of hexgrid plugin and bevel selection.

I just use it for fun and if necessary, I also use it for homework, other work, etc. It's basically my all-purpose image editor. I rarely switch over to GIMP or any of my other image editing programs unless I absolutely must have a certain brush. I've been using PDN since v2 (first got it because I couldn't find MS Paint XD I was so noob back then)and the updates have kept up with all my needs since then. PDN rocks!

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait
