What is Krita?

Krita is free drawing software that also lets you create animations and export them as videos. What distinguishes the program from comparable applications? Krita is kept relatively slim but does not lack any of the central functions. You can customize both the user interface and the tools to suit your needs.

For example, you can freely move and adjust the set-up of the individual tool elements on the user interface. You can save your preferred settings so that they are right there waiting for you next time.

You also have the option to customize the existing wide brush and tool palette. For example, brushes can be imported from other drawing applications or you can create your own.

The most comfortable way to work with Krita is to use a real graphics tablet. It doesn’t have to be a professional device. The software supports numerous models. You can find a detailed overview of all supported drawing tablets on the provider’s website.
