We pushed another update today which should make Krita open or create a new image significantly faster than it was previously!

Also, the Custom Image panel now remembers the settings from the last time you used it (per installation). So, if you usually use the same settings, you can get working faster too!

We've just pushed an update that fixes:
  • Deleting group-layers in Sketch-view
  • Incorrect pixel-density in new images
  • Brush-scaling on the canvas (Shift+drag) required too much motion
  • Awkward slider-controls in Sketch-view
We're also curious as to whether the pixel-density fix might improve the lag which some users have experienced, we'd love to know if this is the case! :D

We're very excited to announce that a demo of the Sketch interface of Krita Gemini is now available to download as a demo from the Steam store page.

This will let you try out Krita Gemini's touch-based interface in its current state whilst we continue to develop it.

We still recommend that you download Krita Desktop from the, and experience the powerful, fully-featured desktop interface shared with Krita Gemini.

We're very happy to report that we've pushed a new update for Krita Gemini which resolves some of the issues people have reported, adds some additional features, improves performance and adds a reporting tool so you can submit crash-reports to us, should you be so unfortunate as to encounter one.

Included this release:
  • Copy+Paste tools in Sketch
  • Improved performance in Krita Gemini
  • Add support for layer-groups in PSD files
  • Crash-reporting tool
  • Default to dark theme for new new users as it is preferred by many artists (can change under Settings-Themes)
  • Fix: Save dialog no longer requires file extension to save correctly
  • Fix: Recent file list now updating
  • Fix: Titlebar correctly reflects current file
  • ...and many other little little improvements

Known Issues
There is still a subtle saving bug which only affects you if you create or open a new image from the Desktop view (so, a second instance of Krita launches). The second instance of Krita tends to have problems saving as a Krita file and reports an error that it couldn't save. Don't worry if you encounter this error - if you open file manager to inspect the save directory you should see that it has indeed saved a file named: "" just delete the bit of the filename after .kra and it should load fine.

We hope you enjoy this update, and you'll be seeing more regular updates over the next few weeks!

We're happy to say that users of a 64-bit version of Windows should see their copies of Krita Gemini being updated automatically to the 64-bit version.

The first version of Krita Gemini that was being distributed was only 32-bit in order to help simplify testing and to make sure that it supported a broader spectrum of users before we went live on the store. Some people had reported issues when working with larger files, so hopefully this should make things run a bit smoother!

"Free, Open Source Application sold as a Steam Early Access Game"
Sounds far-too appropriate for today, but really there's no foolish shenanigans here!

Krita Gemini is an improved version of the already popular open-source Krita painting program. The version on Steam, in its final version will have improved support for Steam features as well as the 2-in-1 switching interface to help you get the most out of your convertible laptop, tablet or HTPC.

Whilst we work on getting a demo ready, why not try out the free, fully-featured Krita Desktop!
