Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software
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
software that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful
yet simple image and photo editor tool.
- Fixed DirectDraw Surface (.dds) file format support for CPUs which do not have SSE2 (Pentium III, Athlon XP).
- Fixed an issue with the File->Save dialog related to file type plugins that were only written for opening (importing).
- Fixed some crashes which were supposed to be "out of memory" errors.
- Fixed a race condition with the New Image, Canvas Size, and Resize dialogs. If you typed extremely fast you could cause a crash by typing a negative number and immediately pressing OK or Enter.
- Fixed a File->Save dialog issue in Win7/Vista where it could ask you about overwriting the wrong file.
