5.0.6 is now available

This is a small update that improves the sharpness of the canvas, and fixes a few other small issues.

Get the Update

There are two releases of Paint.NET:

  • Microsoft Store release (recommended)
  • Classic Desktop release
    • Download the installer from the website . This is the recommended download if you don’t have Paint.NET installed. It can also be used to update the app.
    • If you already have it installed, you should be offered the update automatically within the next few days, but you can also get it immediately by going to ⚙ Settings -> Updates -> Check Now.
    • Offline Installers and Portable ZIPs are available over on GitHub.

Change Log

Changes since v5.0.5:

  • Improved the sharpness of the canvas, which had gotten too blurry in 5.0.4 in some cases
  • Added a “reset to default” button for Image->Resize’s Resampling option
  • Fixed a rendering artifact on the canvas where sometimes the transparency checkerboard would be visible at the bottom pixel of an image when it shouldn’t be
  • Fixed a glitch with the canvas zoom slider where it would draw the tracking thumb at the wrong position when the zoom level was at 10,000%
  • Fixed a rare hang that could happen when opening an image

    Sent some coin your way thru paypal. Love, but I despise the windows store&apps, emulating bad actor apple, doesn’t improve an already f#cked up tech world.

    In any case, keep up the great work, I despise adobe as well!
