Paint.NET v3.5.7 is now available!

Recommended Posts

As usual, you can either use the built-in updater from the Utilities menu, or you can download and install directly from the website: http://www.getpaint.net/. There's no need to worry about removing the old version; that is all handled automatically.

This update improves reliability of saving, further improves Copy/Paste functionality, and fixes some other miscellaneous bugs.

  • Saving an image is now fault-tolerant. If there is an error or crash while saving, the original file will be left alone.
  • Worked around a bug in some plugins that are incorrectly using the built-in Gaussian Blur effect. For example, Sharpen+. Now they won’t crash.
  • Fixed a bug with Edit->Paste into New Image, where the new image would be 1 pixel too wide or tall, as reported at
  • Fixed a bug with the Rectangle Select tool and Fixed Ratio selection, which would be off by 1 pixel, as reported at
  • When pasting an image from Paint.NET into Paint.NET, it will be a little smarter about where it puts the image. Previously, if the location wasn’t within the viewport, it would be placed at the top-left corner of the viewport. Now it will find the nearest point along the edge of the viewport to place the image.
  • The EXIF rotation ("orientation") metadata is now discarded when opening an image, which was causing aggravation with images that could then never be reoriented correctly using Image->Rotate
  • The EXIF tags for JPEG thumbnail data are now correctly discarded.
  • Fixed a handful of memory leaks.
  • Fixed a typo in the Italian translation. In the setup wizard it was referring to "Paint.NET" (woops)

Enjoy!

Installer does not work on my Windows 7 x64 installation. It unpacks it all and then asks for missing

PaintDotNet_259542418.msi in dir C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Staging\

I tried to search the hard drive for the file, but no luck.

Its the same with quick or custom installation.

So I do not know whats wrong,it just does not install.

Please note that my Windows 7 x64 is updated via windows update to latest patches

I've been using Paint.NET for a while now and I have to say that this is a definite improvement. What I use this program for requires me to select and deselect areas excessively, and more complex area selection operations could cause my computer to grind to a near halt sometimes, especially if circle select was being used. With this update, I can do all sorts of crazy selecting without any concern for overtaxing my processor.

Nice job. As soon as digital matter transportation technology is developed, I will email you a pizza.

I have been using 3.5.6 with the plugins on my other computer.

My editing computer I just updated to 3.5.7 and installed the plugins and none work .

Error message saying My update may be too new or the plugins too old?

Any ideas/

Thanks

EDIT

Ok It seems the old Paint files were not deleted even when I used Uninstall.

I had to manually delete the paint file before installing the new version.

The plugins NOW work..

@Tay: (from the first post in this thread...)

Updating Paint.NET should not require you to reinstall the plugins. Neither should you need to delete any Paint.NET files, the updater should handle this automatically for you.
