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.

If you want to share it on deviantart you need to save it as png or jpeg.

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?
