astronut80920 Posted July 19, 2015 Share Posted July 19, 2015 I just discovered and downloaded Paint.net and am so far impressed. It even works on my underpowered Asus 10 inch laptop/tablet, although I am sure will have to be careful about memory usage. The story behind my choice of Paint.net is this: I have a full size laptop that I use for photo processing. I use Lightroom and Photoshop Elements to do this. Lately the laptop has been giving me fits, freezing and crashing and heating up. Until I can get the $$ to get it fixed (if it can be fixed), I decided to see if my lowly Asus can pitch in. So far it has done just that. Now comes the 64K dollar question. One reason I picked Paint.net is that it uses layers and has similar functions found in Photoshop Elements. The other thing I know I will miss is the use of plugins like the Topaz series of plugins, NIK plugin just to name two. I know Paint.net uses plugins and are different from Adobe's, but I have to ask: can these plugins be utilized in Paint.net? If they can't, that's ok. I will just alter my image processing method because I think Paint.net can handle what I need to do. As I have progressed in image processing experience, I have found myself using these plugins less and less anyway.
