Paint.NET is a proprietary free digital imaging software for computers that run on Microsoft Windows. It was developed on the .NET Framework using C# with some C++ code. The program is comparable to other digital photo editing software such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel Paint Shop Pro,MS Photo Editor, and the GIMP.
Using Paint.NET for web design requires familiarity of photo editing tools. If you have used Photoshop before, you will be at home with Paint.NET. Paint.NET is freeware and you don't have to pay for this software but if you appreciate this software and want to support future development, please fo to Paint.NET's Donate Page.
