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.
And here is our new Facebook page

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

If you have any other questions, the best place to ask them is

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.
You can get it here!
This version has new filters, new tools and a ton of bugfixes too!

Hello! If I may ask a question: what configurations do you use that result to a crisp, clean image when exporting? Like, is there a standard image size or is there more appropriate file extension used, options that you usually tick before exporting, tricks, something like that. I'm still fumbling around Krita so any help would be much appreciated ^^

Stupid question for any Krita animators out there, but I was wondering how do I make a layer disapear mid animation? Like if I want one object to vanish and be replaced by another. Know what I mean?

Does anyone know how to hide the white dot while drawing? I have Cursor Shape set as "No Cursor", and yet it still appears.

Great soft you guys!
EDIT: Nevermind I figured it out.

Hey there. I recently switched to Linux mint. When I use Krita with my tablet and then lift the pen and use the mouse the cursor won't move.

Except when I do movement dramatic enough to get the mouse cursor out of the canvas.

It didn't happen in win 7. In mint it only happens in krita. How od I fix this ?
