Paint.NET: A Free Photoshop Alternative

Being someone who is fairly decent in Adobe Photoshop considering I’m a coding monkey, it always bothers me to not have it at my disposal when needing to edit or create an image. In general I haven’t had a license for it at work at my last couple of jobs, and at times it can be quite limiting in those rare cases where I need an image for something.

The past week or so I’ve been playing around in Paint.NET which is developed at Washington State University with some help from Microsoft. It seems to be an excellent facsimile of Adobe Photoshop– I highly recommend that check it out if you need something to create/edit images in with Photoshop-like capabilities but don’t use a graphics application often enough justify the cost of a license of Photoshop.
