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… , or you can get Krita, for free, right now on Linux (as well as all the latest news and improvements) at See what other Krita users are doing on our forums here:…

I was looking long time for a good substitute for expensive Photoshop and only Krita met my expectations perfectly. This software is awesome and I'm really happy to see that it's updated so often. Keep up the great work Krita Team :-)

WOW! I just installed 2.8 for windows and I'm so psyched! The GUI and tools look great at first glance. I can't wait to  sit down with a good chunk of time and get acquainted. I was waiting a long time for  a windows build. THANK YOU

For the past few days when ever I try to work on a large canvas(15inx15in or larger) the program freezes and stops responding. I was wondering if there is some kind of bug or something I need to activate?

Ah, did anything happen since that bug appeared? Did it work okay before that?

It might be that your computer can't handle such a large canvas :x

I did some research and found out that krita and Google Chrome don't do well together. Once I closed the browser krita worked just fine

Oh wow, I never heard of that, where did you learn this?

Also, were you running youtube or hi-end applications like flash and webgl?(The developers would like to know ;) )
