Paint.NET is free image and photo editing designed to be used on computers that run Windows. It features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help, tutorials, and plugins. It started development as an undergraduate college senior design project mentored by Microsoft, and is currently being maintained by some of the alumni that originally worked on it. Originally intended as a free replacement for the MS Paint software that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful yet simple tool for photo and image editing.

key features of Paint.NET :
Simple, intuitive user interface
Every feature and user interface element has been designed to be immediately intuitive and easily learned without assistance. Paint.NET is also designed to be immediately familiar to users of MS Paint and Adobe Photoshop.

Layers
Layers allow you to compose one complete image from a stack of other images that are blended together.

Unlimited History
Every action you perform on an image is recorded in the History window. The number of actions you can store in the History Window is only limited by available disk space and memory.

Support for many popular file formats
The following file formats are supported: PNG, JPEG, BMP, GIF, TGA, DDS, and TIFF. The native Paint.NET image type is PDN, which preserves the layer structure.

Effects and Adjustments
You can apply many special effects and adjustments to your image.

Full Support for Dual- and Quad-Core CPU’s, and 64-bit
Paint.NET is fully optimized for the latest in processor technology, enabling dramatic performance improvements when working with large or multiple images.

Enhanced for Windows 7
Paint.NET v3.5 has been enhanced for the latest Windows release. Jump List support provides quick access to the list of recent images, and the user interface has been enhanced to take advantage of Aero and Glass. The font manager for the Text tool has been rewritten to use the new DirectWrite component, which greatly improves quality and performance.

Extensibility
Paint.NET supports plug-ins that add new effects, adjustments, and file format support.

Free
Paint.NET is provided for no cost with generous licensing terms. If you choose, you can support continued development of Paint.NET with a donation.

What's News in Paint.NET versi 4.1.1 :
• Improved startup performance if "a lot" of effect plugins are installed. More optimizations are coming in the next update.
• Fixed: Pixel grid no longer draws some dots darker than others at some zoom levels, as reported at https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/112794-pixel-grid-rendering-problems-when-zooming/
• Fixed: Radial Blur was not handling alpha correctly
• Fixed: IndirectUI ColorWheel swatch is now rendered correctly (without the fading alpha gradient)
• Fixed: The tooltip describing the shortcut key for tools now indicates how many times to press the key (e.g., press S four times for Magic Wand selection)
• Fixed: Pressing Escape to deselect now works with all tools (this bug was introduced in v4.0)
• Fixed: Images with variable alpha were not displaying correctly at some zoom levels. They were "too dark" in translucent regions. Reported here: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/112184-some-zoom-levels-display-alpha-as-extra-opaque/
• Fixed: For the Store release, launching with the paintdotnet: protocol no longer shows an error if no parameters are provided (thanks @Bruce Bowyer-Smyth!)
• Fixed a crash for some effects that were rendering too quickly
• Fixed a bug in the Image>Resize dialog where the asterisk and the note about which resampling mode was being used, e.g. "* Bicubic will be used," weren't going away or updating correctly
• New: Added a /set:SETTING=VALUE command-line parameter. This is specifically useful for disabling hardware acceleration if the app won't start or you can't reach the Settings dialog. This is also necessary for the Store release whose virtualized registry cannot be edited. To launch the Store version with hardware acceleration disabled, go to Start -> Run and type in "paintdotnet:/set:UI/EnableHardwareAcceleration=false" (without quotes) and press OK
• New: Added detection for when "Diebold Warsaw" is causing Paint.NET to crash. The error message will indicate this cause.
• Fixed: Addressed CVE-2018-18446. Credit goes to Bruce Bowyer-Smyth.
• Fixed: Addressed CVE-2018-18447. Credit goes to Soroush Dalili from NCC Group.
