Paint.NET 3.0

January 28, 2007

Paint.NET 3.0 was released a few days ago. From looking at the release notes the new version doesn’t have a ton of new features, but one of them is a new multi-document interface; something I’ve wanted to see in Paint.NET for a long time.

Paint.NET is a pretty good graphics editor for something that started out as an undergraduate project, and it’s free. Out of all the Photoshop alternatives I’ve tried (both shareware and freeware) for Windows and OSX, Paint.NET is my favorite.
