Krita is a professional FREE and open-source painting program.  Krita is the best for painting and it's friendly for beginners.



  • Krita has support for a variety of file formats. Not all file formats are supported equally well, and for some there is only import, not export. Krita supports metadata for kra, ora, tiff, jpeg and png file formats.
  • Krita does not support indexed color models. In general, Krita does not support color models without an alpha channel. Krita supports different channel depths, from 8 bits integer to 32 bits floating point per channel.
  • Krita supports the both layers and masks. Masks are associated with a single layer, while layers are grouped in a hierarchy.
  • There are several types of tools: vector tools, raster tools, guidance tools, canvas tools and selection tools. Note some types of content are not implement as tools but as “shapes” that can be inserted, for instance richt text, text-on-a-path or geometric shapes.
  • Krita is different from other applications in that it supports brush engine plugins. These brush engines are used in the pixel tools to stroke your painting.
