Popular graphics editor Paint.NET is coming to the Windows Store

You may be familiar with Paint.Net, a very popular graphics editor for Windows. Well, the rumors are indeed true, and it turns out that the developer behind the program, Rick Brewster, has revealed that he indeed is planning to bring Paint.NET to the Windows Store.

According to a post to the Paint.NET blog, Brewster will first release version 4.0.17 of Paint.NET, which has important fixes and high-DPI improvements and then focus on bringing the same version to the Windows Store.  Though there is no timeframe for a release to the Windows Store, here is what the developer writes:

“I’d love to give a date but I’ve always gotten them wrong…Some people have asked, “but how will you make money with the Store version?” (I’m still planning on a price of “free”) Answer: not sure. But if I wait to figure out both of these things (money + Store logistics), I’ll procrastinate forever and neither will ever happen. It’s just something I’ve learned about my own psychology: don’t let X delay Y, just do Y and X will sort itself out later.”

Paint.NET is free to download, and it is a photo editing software for PCs that run Windows. Features of Paint.NET include an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools.
