Version 4.3.3 of Paint.NET has been released. This drawing and image editing program bridges the gap between the Paint supplied with Windows and expensive but very extensive programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Corel Photo Paint. Today, the program is also offered via the Windows Store offered, although a small fee is charged for that version. This issue includes the switch to .Net 6. This has greatly improved performance, but it also heralds the end of support for Windows 7 and 8, which will expire from version 4.4. The complete changelog for this release looks like this:


  • The app has been migrated to .NET 6, which has improved both rendering and startup performance
  • Catalan (ca) translation
  • Corsican (co) translation
  • Thai (th) translation


  • Various UI controls for Dark Theme, eg scrollbars (Win10 v1809+ only)
  • Performance during the “extracting” stage of the installer by migrating away from Nullsoft Scriptable Installer System (NSIS)


  • The /createMsi command for the installer has been removed. Instead, you can now download MSIs directly from the GitHub releases page


  • Bundled AvifFileType to v1.1.17.0, courtesy of @null54, which updates the AOM version and fixes a crash when reading large EXIF ​​blocks. see its GitHub releases page for more info.
  • Download size on ARM64 by about 33%


  • The way various UI controls look on Windows 11, eg buttons and drop-down lists
  • The View -> Zoom to Window command when using the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+B), which was resetting instead of toggling the zoom level
  • A rendering bug in the Dents and Polar Inversion effects, as reported here
  • A memory leak in the selection renderer that was consuming gigabytes of GPU memory, resulting in crashes. More info
  • Some GDI object leaks, particularly with the Save Configuration dialog, which would eventually result in a crash. More info
  • A memory leak in Settings -> Tools. More info
  • An issue that was preventing new plugins from loading their native DLL dependencies as specified in their .deps.json file
  • The app crashing after an effect plugin crashes when you choose to restart the app
  • A crash while drawing a selection, right-clicking on the History window before releasing the left mouse button, and then clicking to redo a history entry. More info
  • A text rendering bug in some parts of the UI, mostly in Effects. More info
  • The “untitled:” file name argument prefix, which was preventing Window Clippings from being able to send screenshot
  • Some registry keys that were not being deleted during uninstall
  • The PdnRepair utility on Windows 7
  • Some inconsistencies with the MSI as compared to v4.2.16 which were causing problems for some deployments
