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
The documentation is online at and includes introduction guides and tutorials.
See what other Krita users are doing on our forums here:…
And here is our new Facebook page:…

If you are having trouble uploading krita made images, check this link for a step-by-step for converting your image to a nice deviantart-ready png or jpg…

We only accept images that had Krita used in making them. When submitting images to this group, be sure to tag it with Krita or mention Krita in the description, so that we can verify that.

Hello. I need some help with a recurring issue I have been having with krita. I came on with this issue before but I am hoping someone has so0mething new to help me with.

Every time I try to screen record on the program , it looses all the pen pressure and continues until I turn the recording program off. No matter how I adjust the pen pressure it still does this on krita and only krita.  I have turned the screen display openGL off , I have tried different recording software including obs , icecream , Ispring, and windows recorder. The only one it works normally with is windows recorder but windows recorder is faulty itself. Do you have any advice that can help me? Is there anyone else having a difficult time screen recording on krita?

I'm having a problem with Krita 4: anytime I start my PC and uses a drawing software (any software except Krita 4 itself: Paint Tool SAI, MediBang, GIMP etc.) Krita 4 doesn't recognizes the pressure of my drawing tablet. If I restart the PC, Krita recognizes the pressure again, unless I uses other software! None of the other software are affected by this, only Krita 4... Someone can help me and/or has the same problem?

Estou tendo um problema com o Krita 4: sempre que inicio meu PC e uso um software de desenho (qualquer software, exceto o próprio Krita 4: Paint Tool SAI, MediBang, GIMP etc.), o Krita 4 não reconhece a pressão da minha mesa digitalizadora. Se eu reiniciar o PC, o Krita reconhecerá a pressão novamente, a menos que eu use outro software! Nenhum dos outros softwares são afetados por isso, apenas o Krita 4 ... Alguém pode me ajudar e / ou tem o mesmo problema?

Please provide more details.

Operation System.
Which Tablet is it?
The drivers version for your tablet. You can find that in the Device Manager on Windows.

Keep in mind that the Group comment section is not intended for support.…

Thanks, I know it's not for support, but I'm trying to see if anybody else has the same problem

OS: Windows 7 64
Tablet: Genius EasyPen i405X

It's not the drivers, the problem happens only with Krita 4.0 (with older versions of Krita this bug did not happens).

Was the last working one Krita 3 or 2?… The commit from 27 Feb. could be the culprit.

Hmmm no biggie but submitted my work 7 days ago no show here.
Seen 3 updates with images submitted to group but not mine?
Wondering if something I'm doing wrong?


Nevermind checked back now image says "Expired" Whatever that means?

Possible that you submitted yours to "featured" which means it needs 3 votes by the group owner or contributors.
