For powerful, easy-to-use photo editing, with layers, plug-ins, and allsorts of special effects, along with a compact and easily understood interface, I’ll stick with Paint.Net.
Although it requires Windows’ hard-to-keep-updated. Net Framework, the program puts all of the editing tools a nonprofessional might reasonably expect into a remarkably intuitive package.There’s a trick to installing Paint.Net. If you go to the company’s website, you’re faced with a daunting array of junk-filled download sites. Instead, take a two-step approach to downloading a clean copy. Start by installing the latest version of .Net Framework from Microsoft’s official site.
