It's easily worth 4 (I like it) if it didn't have this one issue. My friend has 12GB RAM and usually does only little work with it, but most of the RAM is already used by, guess what? A web browser with a dozen or several tabs open... I have 20GB on my main laptop, 16 on two others (all three Lenovo Thinkpads, but the third is a laptop/tapblet hybrid, X102 Tablet or something likish that it's model), so it's rare for my laptop to run out of memory.

I really want to love this software. The fast startup and the succinct toolset are exactly perfect for what i need as a replacement for MS Paint...But even now it crashes randomly. All i did was open an existing PNG image, and tried to select a region for cropping...but then, crash. After a few moments of investigation, just gave up. Sory to the deveopers. I know you work hard, but just not usable.

I like it a lot. Looks good and functions well. There's need for a little bit simple editors too! I use it mostly for quick drawing where i need boxes and circles or handdrawing. Gimp does not feel so good in this kind of working.

PINTA IS FIXED! Pinta seems now to be working perfectly in Linux Mint 19.1 It was broken for a good six months and was always crashing. But now it is back to performing perfectly. Pinta is hard to beat! FROM : 3 Montths ago: CRASHES ON ALL BUT SMALL FILES. This program used to be really great, and was a super lightweight alternative to GIMP. Unfortunately, once I went to LM 19.1 it started crashing all the time. It seems now, it only works with very small files. If you load a larger image, it dumps you out.

I like Pinta a lot! It's stable as a rock now that I've installed an up to date version of Mono. It's extensive enough, yet simple enough.

Install the Flatpak and it should run great for you; as others have said the regular install crashes all the time (a fix and bug report is at Very good Paint.Net alternative for Linux.

Very lightweight and simple. It's for basic image editing - like MSPaint.

Update but still crashed

milo_thatch 1 year ago

Didn't work at first. Kept crashing when I opened an image. Don't forget to do : apt-get update then apt-get upgrade in this order.
