4.2.1 ist eine kos­ten­lo­se Bild­be­ar­bei­tungs­soft­ware für Micro­soft Win­dows, die ursprüng­lich von der Washing­ton Sta­te Uni­ver­si­ty und Micro­soft ent­wi­ckelt wur­de. Seit der Ver­si­on 4.0.20 setzt sie Win­dows 7 SP1 sowie das .NET Frame­work ab Ver­si­on 4.7 vor­aus.

Die Bild- und Foto­be­ar­bei­tungs­soft­ware bie­tet eine intui­ti­ve und inno­va­ti­ve Benut­zer­ober­flä­che mit Unter­stüt­zung für Ebe­nen, unbe­grenz­tes Rück­gän­gig­ma­chen, Spe­zi­al­ef­fek­te und eine Viel­zahl nütz­li­cher und leis­tungs­fä­hi­ger Werk­zeu­ge. Für sind zahl­rei­che Tuto­ri­als und Plugins ver­füg­bar. in der Ver­si­on 4.2



  • New: JPEG XR file type sup­port (Win­dows 8.1+ requi­red)
  • Fixed: Hol­ding Ctrl when drag­ging a selec­tion with Move Selec­ted Pixels will again lea­ve a copy behind (but only with the mou­se)
  • Fixed cras­hes when saving DDS images
  • Fixed VTF file type plugin. It was not working in 4.2 except for images that were an exact power-of‑2 size on each dimen­si­on.
  • Fixed: .BMP files can be ope­ned even if they’re not actual­ly BMP images (they still need to be a valid WIC-sup­por­ted file type such as PNG, JPEG, etc.)
  • Fixed very bad per­for­mance when ope­ning lar­ge images with embed­ded rota­ti­on meta­da­ta
  • Fixed various cras­hes, such as when using File->New or Image->Resize, that some­ti­mes hap­pen­ed if the pre­vious update nee­ded a reboot but eit­her 1) it didn’t tell you that, or 2) it did but you didn’t reboot
  • Fixed the pro­blem that was causing the need for the afo­re­men­tio­ned reboot in the first place (string resour­ces file was locked by the thumb­nail pro­vi­der shell exten­si­on)
  • Fixed: Text tool will no lon­ger draw tiny text when an image uses dots-per-cen­ti­me­ter ins­tead of dots-per-inch
  • Fixed menu orde­ring of effect plugins that have dupli­ca­te names
  • Fixed: The mou­se wheel may now be used to scroll the Palet­tes menu in the Colors win­dow (thanks @AndrewDavid for the sug­ges­ti­on and @toe_head2001 for the fix!)
  • Fixed meta­da­ta hand­ling that was pre­ven­ting some images with EXIF tag 330 from being able to load
  • Fixed meta­da­ta pre­ser­va­ti­on for old images that pad EXIF string values with null ter­mi­na­tors
  • Fixed tit­le bar text color when using cer­tain custom accent colors in Win­dows 10
  • Fixed tit­le bar accent color when Tablet Mode is enab­led
