Paint.Net (Portable) is a raster graphics editor program, designed for images and photo editing under Windows operating system. Here is the in-brief story of Paint.NET creation. The program was created in 2004 by senior students of “Computer Science” course. One of its main developers, Rick Brewster, wrote in his blog that the first version of the program had been created within 4 months only. At that time the program contained only 36,000 lines of code.
Windows operating system has built-in raster graphics editor Paint. However, its features are not a patch on features of Paint.Net. Despite the fact Paint.Net portable is free, it contains features, available in expensive Photoshop-like image editors only.
All elements of program interface are made the way, so that anyone could understand how to use the program by itself, without the help of a specialist. The tabbed interface of the program was “invented” to make working with the program easier. Moreover, you will see the thumbnails of images you are currently working on instead of textual information in miniatures. All the aforementioned makes navigating in Paint.Net easy and fast.
