Free tool: Paint.NET 3.0

Paint.NET 3.0 was released recently. The main new features:

  • Generally improved and cleaner user interface

  • Interactive Gradient Tool that makes it very easy to draw and then fine-tune placement and coloring of a gradient.

  • User-definable color palette (as opposed to just the color wheel)

  • New effects: Clouds, Median, Unfocus, Outline, and an improved Sharpen

  • More intuitive and more powerful toolbar

  • History files are now compressed to save disk space, reduce disk activity, and improve performance.

  • "Merge Down" layer command

  • Simple and intuitive tab-based multi-document user interface:

Paint.NET is free and I have used it for more than a year for all my image editing. It is powerful enough to do everything I need, but yet simple to use for someone like me who is not an imaging expert.
