Paint.NET is image and photo manipulation software designed to be used on computers that run Windows. It supports layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. It started development as an undergraduate college senior design project mentored by Microsoft, and is currently being maintained by some of the alumni that originally worked on it. Originally intended as a free replacement for the MS Paint software that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful yet simple tool for photo and image editing. The programming language used to create Paint.NET is C#, with a small amount of C++ for installation and shell-integration related functionality.
Paint.NET is freeware, but the team is accepting donations here.

recent earlier versions were .net 3.5 , clearly stated on the download page.
3.55 betas - "Paint.NET v3.5.5 - Download, released on April 20th, 2010
This update fixes a bug when saving 8-bit images, improves layer composition and Gaussian Blur performance, and is now updated to support the new .NET Framework 4.0." framework 4 is in fact now a requirement.
Absolutely one of the top 10 pieces of free software ever.

Actually sbeckstead, Paint.NET is .net based, hence the ".NET" in the name.
Also I've been using this app for a while. Haven't found anything this can't do. The PSD plugin is lacking though. But thats not Paint.NET's fault.

Diam0nd>I hate .net languages and imho 99.9% of all net-based applications suck.
Your humble opinion is worthless as you obviously don't know what a .net language is and definitely didn't use the product as it's not even net based.
That being said your 5 stars are worth a grain of salt. It's a good product and deserves continuing.

I hate .net languages and imho 99.9% of all net-based applications suck. But this is a work of art and truly a testament of HOW .net applications should be written and done.
