Paint.NET is a tool that is designed for fast picture edits, despite other premium competitors on the market providing a large number of features. This tool features the required amount of flexibility when it comes to a small edit of a certain picture, as other solutions might be to tedious to work with. Featuring a basic installation process, the tool will be quickly available to use and it can be launched right from the desktop. Alternatively, a picture can be dropped on the icon and it will be automatically loaded into the application.
Various formats are supported, starting with JPG and BMP, but users might be more interested in the fact that RAW files are also compatible with this application. The main tasks that can be achieved with the aid of the tool include resizing, cropping and rotating the picture, but this is not what Paint.NET is all about. The red-eye removal tool is also available and it will remove the unwanted effects in a matter of seconds, after the user designates the area that must be edited. The interface of the application looks professionally and the ability to use various tool boxes and drag them around the screen to place them in the desired locations.
There are a fair amount of effects that can be used in order to further edit a picture and various color options are also available. Blurring and sharpening an image are easy tasks that can be achieved with dedicated tools, but users can also use other features in order to increase the quality of a picture. And if all of these features are not enough, there are a lot of community-designed plugins that allow people to easily benefit from more functions which can be added into the tool. Tutorials are also available, in order to help users understand the basics and not only.
