Krita screenshotKrita provides CMYK support, perspective grids, HDR painting, filters, painting assistants, dockers, and many other features that you will find very useful.

Interface and workspace

Krita has a very friendly interface. In the settings menu, you can pick the color theme, which dockers and toolbars you want to use, and customize keyboard shortcuts. Save a likely pack of dockers as a workspace and exchange between them. The canvas can be rotated very easy and also mirrored. The OpenGL canvas is compatible with high-bit depth displays. There is a big pack of options available to make a no-distractions canvas-only painting mode.

Wrap-around mode

It is very easy to create smooth textures and patterns with this software. Press the W button while painting to switch to wrap-around mode. The image will make mentions of itself onward the x and y axis. You can continue painting and watch all of the mentions update automatically. No more bulky offsetting to see how your image replays itself. You can even paint over the edge and it will directly start painting on the top.

Various brush engines and blending modes

A brush engine is more than just a conventional brush pattern with settings customized. Every brush engine has its own logic and demeanor. The bundled engines are pixel, duplicate, smudge, hairy, filter, texture, hatching, color smudge, chalk, deform, curve, dyna, experiment (Alchemy), particle, grid, sketch, and spray brushes. Brush settings can be saved like presets and shared later. There are an amazing amount of blending types available. The blending modes are sorted by category and have your favorites stocked at the top of the list.

Complex selection and masking tools

Krita comes with many ways of selecting pieces of your canvas in order to edit them. You can select shapes like rectangles and circle, polgon selection, select by color, paint your selection, select by Bezier. You can add, remove, or intersect to your selection.
