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.
Hey, we’re making another test build for 4.2, this time to test two important patches.

The first one changes the way opacity and flow behave, and thus very important for brush creators.

The second changes the save and load system so that we can load 4gb kra files. This is something that is necessary because some people make really large kra files when doing animation and while Krita could save those, it didn’t load them.

Please help us out to decide the state of these patches by trying the test builds and filling out the survey form linked at the bottom of the page.

Other bug reports are of course also welcome, but should go to under the product Krita. For general questions, check

Hi! I have a question regarding the topic of making comics/webtoons/manga on krita: Is there some kind of page manager in the program? like what paint tool sai has? I'm planning on making one in the future and i wanna know if there is or not.

Yes it's a python plugin and you have to activate it in the settings. "Comics Project Management Tools".

Thanks for the reply/help, i just checked the settings and it looks like it's already enabled.

Hi! I just tried out Krita for the first time and ran into something that's an issue for me,…

When the brush is selected and hovers over the canvas the circle is way bigger that when I put down the stroke as you can see in the pic. It's making it difficult for me to be accurate. Is there any way to change how the brush curser displays?

On a sidenote,
any way to expand when you use the fill tool so you don't get that white band along the lines?

Hey I have a dilemma:
Can I upload an animation to this group if it is made with Krita and a payment program? (specifically Adobe Animate)
BloodyWing Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, the groupguidelines are fine with that. Krita only should be a part of it during the process.

why is there a one piece per day limitation on subm8ssions? there are multiple days that I turn out three or four pieces and I don't remember to submit them on subsequent days.

It's because of the small team here that check submissions. It was a lot higher in the past but it soon was too much too handle with such a small team.

That makes sense. Thank you for the reply. ^-^
