Utterly useless crap. It can't even draw single pixel lines in a normal way.

Use Flatpak from Software Manager for current version.

I love this program. Worked first click after download on Mint 20.3. I have been using this since Mint 18 I think. If you are familiar with paint, this will be a breeze.

Is this a joke? Crashed within 20 seconds of first use on 20.3.

This review is just based on my first impressions, as i havent really had the time to get familiar with the UI and layout and capabilities of this like i have with Paint.NET on Windows in the past. However, since it got its 2.0 update, it sure does seem to line up a lot more with the Paint.Net experience and i could see myself getting by alright doing basic photo editing and any pixel-perfect adjusting like i would with; and given that no other program yet has tickled that fancy for that level of simplicity and functionality that makes it easiest to do what *I* need to get done, done. Kudos, Pinta team. :3

This could be a nice alternative, but glitches and frequent crashes make this app difficult to use

Awesome, much simpler and lightweight alternative to Photoshop and Gimp, if you don't want all the complicated and heavyload features of them. Use ppa:pinta-maintainers/pinta-stable, to get the latest stable edition., because the one in repos (1.6) is outdated and unstable.

Funktioniert nicht auf meinem Rechner mit Linux Mint 20.2 Cinnamon. Schade, die Programmoberfläche sieht sehr gut aus.

It could be good for a simple drawing tool but it is quite buggy. The zoom is broken. Crash when working with too many layers. Practically unusable as is.

Freezes regurarly (system not low on RAM) and crashed 5 times during 30 minutes. Use kolourpaint!

Вполне хороший аналог Paint.Net

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. If you do not want Mono, install the flatpak version.

Simple, facile à utiliser. Bonnes fonctionalités. Pour faire marcher le ZOOM (Mint20) : "/usr/bin/pinta in a text editor : add a new line with the text LANG=C before the last line which starts with exec." Merci Stéphane.

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.
