I've been using paint.net for a few years, and it's starting to feel a bit barebones. I want to start using something with more robust features/tools.

Is gimp still the best image editor for people who don't want to use photoshop? Or is there another, better option now? I honestly don't know.

Depends on what you want to do. Krita for digital drawing/painting and yeah there is Gimp, but Gimp is fucking garbage.

I never used paint.me but you don't sound very demanding. What features does it lack?

The biggest thing is I'd like a better find/fill tool. Not sure what you'd call it.

Like, say I want to cut out someones head from a photo and copy it somewhere else. With paint.net I'd use the magic wand tool to select and delete as much of the background as I could, then carefully manually erase whatever is still left. Bit of a hassle. Plus any photo with a lot of hair in it is a nightmare.

Paint.net works fine for drawings and simple line images, or any photos with bright solid backgrounds, but for noisier photos it feels a bit lacking.

>> No.56831206

Cutting out noisy objects will always be a pain in the ass. I don't know of any tools even in PS that make it far more comfortable.

W-Was that image drawn with krita? it's a qt

>> No.56831266

Yeah, this threads making me think that I should probably just stick with paint.net for now. I'm gonna check out Krita though, looks like I might get some use out of that.

my point wasn't that, using shit like gimp, paint.net, etc to do such jobs would only limit you.
using tools like krita, photoshop, etc would let you achieve the same results faster or even better results. stop being a huge retard anon

ah, nevermind then. not that i paint anyway, i just use PS for simple manipulation jobs and tiny amounts of typesetting
