By Umair Monday, October 08, 2012

Pinta is a free, open source drawing/editing program modeled after Paint.NET. Its goal is to provide users with a simple yet powerful way to draw and manipulate images on Linux, Mac, and Windows.

  • Use easy drawing tools to draw freehand, lines, rectangles, ellipses, and more.
  • Use layers to help separate and group elements of your image for easy editing.
  • Use Pinta in your language. Pinta is at least partially translated into over 55 languages.
  • Don't be afraid to experiment, Pinta tracks your full history so you can always undo.
  • Pinta includes over 35 adjustments and effects for tweaking your images.
  • Like docked windows? No problem. Floating windows? No problem. Pinta will even let you mix and match.

New Features / Improvements:
  • Magic Wand tool selection modes (Union, Exclude, Xor, and Intersect).
  • Layer blend modes.
  • Reduced memory usage in the Open Images Pad (over 100mb in some cases).
  • Significantly reduced memory usage for history (only the difference between
  • the two images is stored)
  • Copy/Paste support for the text tool.
  • Improved rendering performance.
  • The colour picker tool now supports different sampling sizes, and sampling
  • from a single layer or the entire image.
  • Improved support for special characters and alternate input methods in the
  • text tool.
  • Added a Copy Merged command to copy the flattened image/selection to the
  • clipboard, instead of just the current layer.
  • Added a drop shadow to the canvas.
  • Improved support for extensions:
  • Extensions can be initialized/uninitialized properly, including removing
  • any tools/effects that were registered.
  • Downloads from remote repositories are now enabled.
