TBT: Free and powerful image editing

This post originally ran in July 2008. I am reposting it now, as part of my throwback thursday project, to give some of my older quality posts some love. Until this day, Paint.NET remains one of a number of applications that I immediately install on any new Windows-machine, and it is still in frequent use.

Continuing my series of posts about handy software that I use and love, I’ve now arrived at paint.net. Paint.net is a powerful piece of open-source image editing software which I’ve been using for a long time. It’s what I use to edit all of the images for my blog, and I’ve found it intuitive, practical and simple to use. Here’s what it looks like:
