Pinta is an open source drawing application for Linux

Brief: Open source painting and drawing application has a new release after more than 5 years.
The new release fixes numerous bugs and adds new features.
Pinta is an open source drawing application for Linux, Windows and macOS.
You can use it for freehand drawing/sketching.
You may also use it to add arrows, boxes, text etc on an existing image.

Pinta version 1.7 was released a few days ago after a gap of almost five years

Let’s see what do we have in the new version.
New features in Pinta 1.7    Here are the new features the latest version of Pinta brings:    Tab view to switch between imagesAddition of a Smooth Erase toolDrag and drop URL to download and open the image in Pinta for editingThe Pencil tool can switch between different blend modes‘Move Selected’ tool can be scaled by holding CtrlThe Rectangle Select tool now shows different arrow cursors at each corner of the selectionPerformance improvements when interacting with selections, particularly for large images    There are numerous bug fixes as well and this should improve the overall Pinta experience.
You can learn about more changes in the official release note.
Installing Pinta 1.7 on Ubuntu and other Linux distributions    For Ubuntu and Ubuntu-based Linux distributions, there is an official PPA available.

If you are using Ubuntu 18.04 or 20.04

you can use this PPA.

Open a terminal and use the following command to add the new repository

You’ll be asked to enter your password.
You probably already know that when you type password in terminal, nothing is displayed.
Just type the password and press enter.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pinta-maintainers/pinta-stable    Not required on Ubuntu 18.04 and higher version anymore but some other distributions may need to update the cache:    sudo apt update    Now install the latest version of Pinta using this command.
sudo apt install pinta    Good thing here is that if you had Pinta 1.6 installed previously, it gets updated to the new version.

Removing Pinta    To remove Pinta installed via PPA

use this command:    sudo apt remove pinta    You should also delete the PPA:    sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:pinta-maintainers/pinta-stable    Installing Pinta on other distributions    When I last checked Pinta 1.7 wasn’t available for Fedora or AUR yet.
You may wait for some time or download the source code and try it on your own.
Download Pinta 1.7     Pinta team has also refreshed its user guide with detailed documentation.

If you are new to Pinta or if you want to use it extensively

you may refer to this user guide for reference.

Conclusion    I am happy to see a new release of Pinta

It was my go-to tool for editing images to add arrows, .

Boxes and text for tutorials on It’s FOSS

I use Shutter for this purpose these days but with this new release, .

I might perhaps switch to Pinta again

What about you.

Do you use Pinta or have you used it in the past

Are you looking forward to use the new version.
