well… adobe photoshop cd2 is a great software. but it’s damm expensive.

paint.net works just like photoshop cd2, as least in the royal opinion.

test tried it. not too bad. same layout, smaller installation size!

seems easy to use too. follow photoshop methodology

Paint.NET is image and photo manipulation software designed to be used on computers that run Windows. It supports layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools.
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 MS Paint software that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful yet simple tool for photo and image editing.
The programming language used to create Paint.NET is C#, with a small amount of C++ for installation and shell-integration related functionality.
