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.

Windows users can download an early testing alpha version right now at this krita.org/component/content/ar… , or you can get Krita, for free, right now on Linux (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/krita-2-9-5-1-a…

In this release: Memory management panel, new fish-eye assistants, improved curves filter, huge speed-up on filter layers and a ton of bug fixes!

Also, we'll be focussing on cleaning up Krita before the stretchgoal voting is finalised on the 6th of July, so don't forget to vote before then! Check the link how you can help with the clean-up!

check krita.org, under the download section. If you files turn out to become '.man' files instead of MSI files, just rename the end of them to 'msi', this is an issue with internet explorer.

Hi! Is there a way to log the number of strokes a drawing is made of?

No, not currently. Not a very easy feature either.

Hello!

I have a huge problem with Krita.
All my graphics programs, photoshop, SAI and other work flawlessly. However, when I try to open the Krita, it crashes and turns off. I tried to open the program in many ways, but none of them work. Every time Krita is not responding. What this may be the fault? And how to fix it? 

I sorry for my very poor English.

This may be a bug that has been fixed in 2.9.5.0, so try out the latest version from the website first, and if that doesn't work, come back, and we'll look further :)

Thank you for accepting me into the group.

I'd like to make a feature request that I'm certain a lot of users will agree is much needed, that's about the only thing that keeps me from working exclusively in Krita.

We need the ability to rotate canvas. Yup, that's the most important missing feature!

Congratulations and thank you for the amazing software.

Not missing actually, just difficult to find: either ctrl+[, ctrl+], 4, 6 or shift+space+drag for discrete rotation, and '5' to reset. You can also mirror the canvas with 'm', and use ctrl+space+drag for discrete zoom.

Thank you Wolthera, that's useful, but what I'm looking for, is a function like that in Photoshop and Painter, where you can rotate the canvas freely without altering the actual orientation of the document.
Kind like rotating the sheet of paper over a drawing board. I'm never good at describing things :( so here's a youtube video.
