Paint.NET is getting noticed!

Recommended Posts

Paint.NET - Chip Online

Chip is one of the biggest computer magazines in Germany and, of course, is offering Paint.NET for Download on their site.

I've translated some text bits for you :)

Download count: 1.8 million

The 2nd most downloaded image processing program of all time (GIMP is first) with approx. 15,000 downloads a week.

Their conclusion:

Paint.NET is a first-class image editing software which already offers many of the features included in commercial products, such as working on different layers etc.

Download is highly recommended.

I have Photoshop CS4, and I hate it ... It seriously has like 20 effects.
Well obviously then you haven't explored the power of CS4. But if you like PDN better than CS4, good for you. I like all the plugin variations too. ;)

Hello Paint.NETers!

I don't browse the forums at all but I am a Paint.NET user and while reading a community spotlight on creators.xna.com I noticed one of the tools the developers had used was Paint.NET!

Original article here.

Go through the questions and once you reach "What other tools/programs do you use to help you make your games?" you will find amazingness.

Edit by Rick: Looks like the link got lost somehow, so I fixed it using your first post.

I haven't been able to find a suitable article to get rid of the silly "citation needed" that has appeared here:

Originally created as a Washington State University student project[citation needed]
. It annoys me somewhat.

And I found this article/post thing, not sure if its been reported or not: http://www.computerarticles.co.uk/paint-net-v3-5/

Doh. Should have thought of that. :lol:

So does my school, but they won't update to the beta (understandable), and they don't allow plugins to be added, for security or something. :x

Seems reasonable, given that they could be trojans and could affect anyone who opens Paint.NET, although sticky'd plugins would probably be safe.
