Pixel-based image manipulation program
  20 reviews

Krita is a creative application for raster images. Whether you want to create from scratch or work with existing images, Krita is for you. You can work with photos or scanned images, or start with a blank slate. Krita supports most graphics tablets out of the box.

Krita is different from other graphics design programs in that it has pluggable brush engines, some supporting brush resources like Gimp brush files, others offering sophisticated simulation of real brushes, and others again offering color mixing and image deformations. Moreover, Krita has full support for graphics tablets, including such features as pressure, tilt and rate, making it a great choice for artists. There are easy to use tools for drawing lines, ellipses and rectangles, and the freehand tool is supported by pluggable "drawing assistants" that help you draw shapes that still have a freehand feeling to them.

Versão desatualizada que contem apenas um idioma, sendo o ingles norte americano, não vale a pena a instalação, vale a pena procurar baixar pelos repositórios direto do site

Brush controls are cool. Pre-installed brushes are also great. A specific brush for two-colour dithering - can you imagine that? Unfortunately random crashes and freezes and limitations (e.g. on palette control) forced me to stop using the app. Also some layer/object controls are conter-intuitive. Good luck to the creators, you're going in right direction! Hopefully in a year or so I will update the review to give more stars.

A powerful app for creating raster images. The developers stay on top of improvements and bugfixes. It keeps getting better. For creating digital art, Krita is a serious rival to Photoshop, with full cmyk support.

I've used this for a long time, on Windows, and it was one of the first programs I searched for when I installed Linux. It's a requirement for me.
