You will need to upgrade to a newer OS to access the new features. bitnyh-sistem-88e6aa2.jpg” alt=”Paint.NET will end support for Windows 7 and 32-bit systems” />

Rick Brewster, developer of Paint.NET, announced that support for Windows 7 will soon be discontinued, Windows 8.1 and any 32-bit versions of systems. This popular alternative to Photoshop will offer new features only to users of 64-bit versions of Windows 10 and Windows 11. The changes are related to the difficulty of supporting them, given that these systems are not popular among users of the service.

The current version is 4.3.3 , now available for download, is the latest major update to support older systems. Now the developer is fully focused on working on version 4.4, which will be released only on Windows 10 and 11. Only the necessary security updates will be released for Paint.NET 4.3 – and only until the release of 4.4.

Paint.NET is distributed free of charge through the official site, but there is also a paid version for the Microsoft Store – for those who want to support the development of the project.
