Paint.NET is simply the best free alternative to Photoshop and the recently released version 2.5 Rc2 earns it a repeat spot on my Freeware of the Moment list. The developers have added so many new features to this new version that it would require a very long list so you should just go look at the Paint.NET web site. Here’s a partial list:

  • Much faster performance and lower memory usage
  • Full flexibility for scaling, rotating, moving, and modifying selections and selected pixels
  • Internationalization (I18N) support
  • Officially available in German
  • Curve tool
  • Full support for working with measurements in inches and centimeters
  • 3D Rotate / Zoom effect
  • Radial Blur and Add Noise effects
  • Sepia adjustment
  • Improved Text Tool, including higher quality font rendering
  • GIF transparency support
  • TGA file format support
  • Greater extensibility with a brand new File Format API
  • Simpler, faster setup wizard
  • Update manager simplifies getting the latest version
  • Cleaner user interface with none of the annoying flickering of past releases

This program quite simply rocks!
