Pros: -Free-Wide variety of brushes-Plenty of features, such as blending features and filters. Cons:-Overwhelming at first-Can be laggy. I feel the Pros would be longer for Krita; but I’ve only used it for a few days. Last picture I made in FireAlpaca. First picture I made in Krita. Krita-Tutorials is the best place where you can find tutorials and resources around Krita. If you still don’t know what Krita is. Krita is a free and open source digital painting software available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
Krita is a free and open source illustration and painting graphics software suite which performs quite nicely for those with a creative side.
Though many people use expensive software like Adobe Photoshop these days, Krita is an excellent alternative with its own niche. It can be used to create all different types of art and illustrations including those for designers, game creators or cartoons. Some of its features rival that of commercial juggernauts.
The layout of Krita looks familiar, featuring a number of different drawing tools to the left, similar to Photoshop. The top menu has what you might already be used to with menu items such as File, Edit, View, Image, Layer, Select, Filter, Tools, Settings, Window and Help; quite similar again to Photoshop.
With all of the similarities to Adobe Photoshop out of the way, Krita features a number of tools which actually seem more intuitive than its commercial counterparts; It comes with 9 preset brushes for painting images like a pen, marker, pencil, etc.
The Image menu of Krita provides access to different image manipulation tools such as mirror, flip, rotate, shear image, color space conversion, image split and more. The layer menu does some of what the image menu does and more, as you would expect from specific layer editing options.
As a powerful image editor, Krita also provides a number of filters built-in like artistic effects, blurring, sharpening and various enhancements.
Digging in a bit deeper reveals a lot of different gems within Krita and those with artistic inclinations may be tempted to spend a bit more time playing around with the tools and image enhancement features Krita offers.
Overall, Krita is an excellent image editing and paint suite which is fully capable of providing artists and designers with a bunch of free tools otherwise costing quite a bit.
Krita can add text to an image, apply special effects to a picture, create web graphics and create and edit layers.
