What is Krita?

Krita is a free and open source, KDE program for sketching and painting, offering an end–to–end solution for creating digital painting files from scratch by masters.

Fields of painting that Krita explicitly supports are concept art, creation of comics and textures for rendering.

Modelled on existing real-world painting materials and workflows, Krita supports creative working by getting out of the way and with snappy response.

You can download Krita for free (as well as all the latest news and improvements) at Krita.org krita.org See what other Krita users are doing on our forums here: forum.kde.org/viewforum.php?f=…
And here is our new Facebook page: www.facebook.com/pages/Krita-F…
krita.org/item/launching-docs-…

The past month we've spent centralising and reorganising the krita documentation, and you can finally access the new learning area on docs.krita.org.

I have a question to ask, but can this software read PDF files? This probably has already been answered, but I can curious as I also use Manga Studio, Paint Tool Sai, and Photoshop.

It can, but only latest versions and it can only save out single page pdfs.(multi page pdfs are loaded as layers)

Just downloaded Krita 2.9. Having quickly glanced over everything. I see that it's still not a final version. Will this crash?

Final version is very relative. We work on a new major release every year, with the numbers increasing of the second digit. The first digit only increases when we do major technology upgrades(we use the qt framework to do our programming on, so if qt does a big version upgrade, we need to follow), and the last one increases for every stable release.

So yes, actually, the 2.9.10 and 2.9.11 are finished releases and stable, with 2.9.11 having more bugfixes than 2.9.10.

If you're talking about animation, that is the 3.0 alpha and that won't be stable until march at the very least.

I see! I played around with it last night and found it very, very good. I've yet to find any tutorials though and I'm really looking forward to getting to know this program. Thanks for replying!

By chance is there any tools that allow text to stay within a specific shape without fiddling for each line. Say I want all the text to stay cleanly within a word bubble. The power of google isn't helping much with this question.

No, we're literally going to have a kickstarter in may to improve the text-tool and make such a tool as you're requesting as well.

Shame that Krita doesn't, but I am definitely going to look into that Kickstarter when it comes out. Thanks for telling me.
