Paint.NET 3.0 Released

Paint.net 3.0

The Paint.NET team has released version three of their powerful, free image editing software for Windows. The new version has some good updates and new features, with the cooles thing being how they handle multiple documents. Rather than a text menu or textual tabs, they have these nice image thumbnail tabs, which look great and are a lot easier to judge than just “Untitled-1″:

Paint.NET is now available in eight languages, features an interactive gradient tool to fine-tune gradients (better than Photoshop’s), user-defined color palettes, four new effects (Clouds, Median, Unfocus, Outline, and an improved Sharpen), a better toolbar and cleaner user interface, the ability to “Merge Down”, and the History is compressed to reduce disk space, disk activity, and improve performance.

I love Paint.NET, a project associated with but not officially by Microsoft, and is one of the best image editors, certainly a top free image editor, a great alternative to Photoshop. In many ways Paint.NET is better than Photoshop, and the price tag is hard to argue with. If they keep improving it like this, Adobe is going to have to take notice eventually.
