Cool Tool : Free Graphic Program

I stumbled upon a website called and found a free graphic program that has many of the capabilities of Adobe Photoshop.

Simple, intuitive user interface--every feature and user interface element was designed to be immediately intuitive and/or quickly learnable without assistance. It is also designed to be immediately familiar to users of Paint and Photoshop.

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

Unlimited History--Every action you take on an image is recorded in the History window, and 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 layering.

Download here | tutorial forums here | Online manual here.

Effects and Adjustments--You can apply many special effects to your image, and support for image adjustments is also possible.

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 and the ability to work with larger and more images.

Tablet PC Support--The Paintbrush tool supports the Tablet PC's pressure-sensitivity feature, allowing you to draw in a more natural and artistic manner.

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

Free-Paint.NET is provided for no cost with generous licensing terms.

Sounds great! I'm not gonna pay couple hundred dollars for photoshop and gimp is just too damn complicated. I'll give this one a try - I hope it's as easy as PS - I can live with limited functionality.

Love the unlimited history! Too bad there's almost no commercial applications that'd use it. Photoshop, I'm looking at you!

It's great. Like paint mixed with photoshop. Not too complicated but also offering some quite in-depth functionality.

Every free software make us one step closer to another step of web evolution. Now we experience so called "web 2.0" and soon it will become 3, 4 or even 5. But these are only names. The technological progress is moving fast and soon everything we have now will be sooo lame (like video tapes, diskettes, CRT monitors and many more). I wonder how will the world look like in about ten or twenty years. I guess that web will be even tighter, more close to everyone and computer power cores will make available so many things.

It is obvious that more and more freeware will appear because of the lines of the code written by intelligent and nice people. But to be serious I think that every single free program is giving us a big step forward.
