    Paint.NET v2.6
    Released: February 24th, 2006 - Download


    This release is an upgrade of v2.5 that utilizes the brand new .NET Framework v2.0 runtime. It introduces full 64-bit support, an aesthetically updated user interface, better performance, a new "Curves" adjustment, and seven new layer blend modes.

    What's new in Paint.NET v2.6?

    * Full 64-bit support, for both x64 and Itanium systems
    * New "Curves" adjustment for editing an image's color curves
    * Seven new layer blend modes: Color Burn, Color Dodge, Reflect, Glow, Overlay, Negation, and Xor
    * Aesthetic improvements to the entire user interface
    * Better performance, especially for 64-bit systems
    * Zooming, esp. with the mouse wheel, has been enhanced
    * Rewritten layer composition engine is now mathematically correct, and faster
    * Deployment via AD/GPO is now much easier (use /createMsi with setup package)
    * User interface now works correctly in high-DPI (120dpi, 144dpi, 196dpi)
    * Layers window list is no longer "upside down"
    * Upgraded to use .NET Framework 2.0
    * Many other improvements and fixes

    Note: The help file is currently not translated to German. We are planning to release an updated Paint.NET v2.6 by April that will have this.

    The only reason I installed .net 1.1 framework was because this needed it.. okay now it's using 2.0 now I have to download 2.0 too?

    Hi GUI_Tex :)
    No it should still work on the 1.1 framework. This update allows it to work on the .NET Framework 2.0 as well
