Krita - free digital painting and illustration

#1 Post by tproli » Fri May 08, 2015 12:24 pm

Krita

Krita is a FREE digital painting and illustration application.

Krita offers CMYK support, HDR painting, perspective grids, dockers, filters, painting assistants, and many other features you would expect.

The application provides users with both a classic and a new set of tools. Using Krita you are able to export your creations to PSD, PPM, PNG, JPEG, TIFF and PDF formats.

As is expected, Krita offers you both vector and raster tools to aid you with your work. You also get smudge, filter, hatching, texture, curve and spray brushes for which you can create custom profiles.

With Krita you can enjoy a very large number of filters amongst which levels, curves, glur, color to alpha, sharpen, sobel and unsharp are found.

Requires Vista or above.

Portability: saves settings to %Appdata% by default. The application needs only an environment variable set to save settings to a custom directory. Trolltech keys are added to the registry.

:!: Krita 3.0 released (The Animation Release) :!: Full changelog

The yaP launcher unfortunately won't work with it (see here for why). Until this is fixed, use the 2.9 series (last version 2.9.11). The PAF dev version is still at version 2.9.7.6.
3.0 release notes wrote:Krita 3.0 load and saves its configuration and resources in a different place than 2.9 so it’s possible to use both versions together without conflicts.
Note that the "portable" 3.0 builds on the Krita download page write their settings to %LocalAppData%/krita and %AppData%/krita.

I'm so far very impressed with this program: there's a remarkable amount of functionality built into this.

Krita is similar to other paint type programs like Artweaver, ArtRage, and MyPaint. MyPaint is also open source but not in active development.

The program itself or the WinPenPack launcher? MyPaint seems to be in very active development: https://github.com/mypaint/mypaint

This program is a lot of fun to play with. I blew 20 mins easily just exploring the various different available brushes. Kind of relaxing as well.

  • OSX is fully supported from now on. The OpenGL canvas works just as well as everywhere else.
    There might still be OSX-specifc bugs, of course! But now is the time for OSX and MacOS fans to
    use Krita and report any issues they might come across.
  • Krita can now, with FFmpeg render an animation to gif, mp4, mkv and ogg.
  • There is now automated tweening of opacity between frames in an animation. You can color-code
    frames in the timeline, and animate the raster content of filter layers, fill layers and masks.
  • There is a new color selector, accessible with the dual color button on the top toolbar. This color
    selector supports selecting HDR colors, colors outside the sRGB gamut of your screen. It can pick
    colors from Krita windows accurately and has much nicer support for working with palettes.
  • The Quick Brush engine is a really fast and really simple brush engine.
  • There is a stop-based gradient editor in addition to the existing segment-based gradient editor
  • We added a halftone filter

I retested v.3.2.1 but unfortunately it's still writing to AppData. The documentation specifically refers to it https://docs.krita.org/KritaFAQ so I'm thinking the only way around this is with a wrapper program.
