Pixia is a powerful raster graphics editor with a unique user interface. It includes various photo filters, brushes, layers, text and broad file format support. Note that the program has a fairly unique interface so, when learning Pixia, it's easier to discard everything you know about other editors like Photoshop or Paintshop and start from scratch with the tutorials and help files.

64-bit version compatible only with Win8+.

Checker: a portable version of Paint.net is available, but untested and not something I would use: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=61988#p61988

Webfork is correct, there is a portable version. Worked fine for me on XP. I also like the knockoff of it called Pinta available for Linux. It's not full-featured yet, but it certainly works.
Off-topicP If you really want portable, put your favorite version of Linux including whatever programs you want on a USB stick and you've got an entire portable OS!

Download link still pointing to Pixia 6.00G rather than to 6.00H and gets a "not found" error.

ShareX version 11.3.0 is labelled "Pre-release" (unstable), this is also implied by the download link provided at the official web-site (for version 11.2.1) and by the structure of the archive (ShareX-portable.zip).

Jaex on 2016-09-29 09:17

@smaragdus fixed portable zip structure now.

smaragdus on 2017-03-22 14:26

ShareX is not stealth, it creates "ShareX.exe.log" in AppData (C:\Users\UserNAme\AppData\Local\Microsoft\CLR_v4.0\UsageLogs).

I used Universal Extractor to open the installer, then copied the {app} folder to my PortableApps directory on my USB drive. I renamed it to Artweaver and created the .ini file. Seems to run just fine! I guess the {embedded} directory contains license files and so forth; not necessary to run the program. Very nice!

@foxcole: click the link in 'how to extract.', you need to replace bin/innounp.exe with the latest version, yours only supports versions up to 5.1.1. Innounp version 0.36 supports unpacking version 5.4.2 Inno Setup installers.
Worked for me.

It should be mentioned that the screenshot shows the unreleased Pro-version. The actual program does NOT support layers!

@zorro: that's accurate - I'll try to get the screenshot updated soon.
