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.
