Paint.NET v3.5 Beta 4 (Build 3591) is now available

The translations are done, the last bugs have been ironed out, and Paint.NET v3.5 is a few steps away from prime time. Officially this is a beta, but the final release is imminent.

Update: Looks like I mixed up the Russian translation, and it comes up in English. That will be fixed of course! πŸ™‚

Anyway you can grab it over at the website. If you want the list of changes since Beta 3, you can get those at the forum. Happy Halloween!

    I’ll ask again for good measure in case you’ve missed it, but…

    Any chance you could have it register itself as a default program on Vista/Windows 7 so that you can use Default Programs utility to force all the file type associations?

    Hi Rick,

    I love Paint.NET, but as of Beta 4 PDN still freezes (well, becomes unresponsive with high CPU usage) for a long while (30 min + ) when attempting to paste an image in. Are there any sort of diagnostics I could send you for this? It really makes PDN difficult to use, sadly.

    By the way, as a heads-up: While this isn’t really a license violation, Mike Hardy over at indicates that he sells “Creative Paint Professional”, but clicking on the page gets:


    Just a head’s-up …

    Love Paint.NET, but I just want to make sure of one thing. Will these new releases be backwards compatible with older plugins? I wouldn’t want to have a bunch of plugins being unable to work with a newer Paint.NET.

    @Philip Kahn,

    Haha, what a moron and a thief that guy is! Absolutely shameful!

    Big thanks for your hard work Rick. I’m really looking forward to using this edition.

    Are you from Oz? (Australia)

    paintNet should come with all windows packages. Its so damn nice to use and easy to pick up. I get a lot of demo’s , and I spend the next few weeks trying to do a simple thing. I like paintNet as it gets you do great stuff, quickly, and with great results. And it keeps getting better. And “Yes !” I would like fries with with my paintNet..and i would like paintNet to be super sized.. πŸ™‚

    Hey! πŸ˜€

    I JUST started using this program and I had a bit of an issue with the majic wand, it works fine but I want to to some specific adjustments/effects on one colour that is in one spot of my picture (hair(one solid colour))but when I go to hilight it then ENTIRE picture gets hilighted. I tried it on a different part (eye)and it worked fine, it only selected the blue in the eye!(I tried using the lasso tool on the hair but that is WAY to hard for detailed pictures.

    so I have a suggestion for the new version (#4) for the magic wand tool there should be an expansion tool that leads you from: normal, or colour -> select colour -> and then you can use the coluor select tool or select the number of colours you want to select for multi range awsome-ness πŸ˜€ or something like that.

    I don’t know if this is even programable but I think it would be a HUGE awsome tool

    thanks for looking into it even if it doesn’t work out to be programable (I have no idea how to program stuff so I don’t know if thats impossible or not but please try!)(or am I being dumb and this is rediculously easy?)

    Thanks for reading! πŸ˜€ I know, it was long :S
