One of my favorite FREE image editing applications paint.net just released a new update – Version 3.5.3

The update mainly covers just a few bug fixes so new new functionality this time around.

  • Fixed DirectDraw Surface (.dds) file format support for CPUs which do not have SSE2 (Pentium III, Athlon XP).
  • Fixed an issue with the File->Save dialog related to file type plugins that were only written for opening (importing).
  • Fixed some crashes which were supposed to be "out of memory" errors.
  • Fixed a race condition with the New Image, Canvas Size, and Resize dialogs. If you typed extremely fast you could cause a crash by typing a negative number and immediately pressing OK or Enter.
  • Fixed a File->Save dialog issue in Win7/Vista where it could ask you about overwriting the wrong file.
  • If enabled, paint.net should auto-update itself just by launching the app.  For me, once I approved the update it was finished within a matter of 1-2 minutes.  If you don’t have Auto-Update enabled, just grab the download here:
