You can also download it directly by heading over to the forum.

Changes since 4.2 beta build 7111:

  • New: Saving in HEIC format is now supported. Windows 10 v1809+ is required, along with installation of HEVC Video Extensions from Device Manufacturer (free) from the Microsoft Store.
  • Improved: If you try to open or save an HEIC and you do not have the Microsoft codec installed, the error message will provide you a link to go get it. (The link is in the "Show Details" section)
  • Fixed: Pasting from some sources (e.g. Google Chrome) should no longer be shifted to the right by 3 pixels, nor have 3 colored pixels at the bottom left, and should also have working alpha/transparency again. This appears to be a bug in Windows 10 v1903 when both CF_DIB and CF_DIBV5 are on the clipboard and in that order (in other words, CF_DIB is higher priority than CF_DIBV5).
  • Fixed: The LowColor File Type plugin should work again. It still has a bug where it may show its own error dialog while you are modifying the properties for saving. This dialog can be ignored and dismissed.

    Hey, I just want to thank you for all the work you do. I’m not an artist, but I use (and have used) your software for more years than I care to remember (ever since photoshop just became too expensive). As a writer who needs to illustrate my work, I am trying to teach other writers to use your software. I’m about to do another tutorial – this time on more advanced techniques. Here’s the link to what I wrote for writers. I realize, of course, artists don’t need it so simplistically expressed, but writers aren’t familiar with imaging software.
