We will be releasing 2.9.x versions of Krita until 3.1 is ready for end users. Every month a new 2.9.x is expected.

This page is for documenting the new features and bugs that get fixed from 1st of july 2015 till whenever the 3.1 release is.

  • [Short Feature Name]
    • [Short explanation in 2-5 sentences]
    • [Screenshot] Screenshot and/or video should small and catchy, so it would be possible to post it in social networks.



3.0 Alpha 3(14th of March)

Feature freeze till 3.0 proper is out.

  • New layerdocker-look:
  • More condensed and clean looking to make it easier to use.
  • Layers can have colors be associated with them. You can later filter the layers by color.
  • A lot of new shortcuts for grouping, moving, and working with multiple layers.
  • Ctrl+Alt+G now quick ungroups layers! (Not in the video below)
  • We removed the Grid Tool… And created a new grid docker that exposes all the grid and guide settings. This makes it much easier and logic to work with and edit your grids. Krita’s grid handling has been streamlined by removing the perspective grid tool (you can find a much more powerful perspective grid in the assistants) and the snap settings docker is gone, to be replaced by the snap setting pop-up(shift+s)
  • Snapping to grids and guides wasn’t part of the original plan, and we were even considering making it a 2016 Kickstarter stretch goal, but we implemented snapping for all vector, selection and raster tools! Well, with the exception of the distance measurement tool and the freehand tools, like the freehand brush tool, multibrush, dynabrush, and freehand path tools.
  • A Spriter exporter! We’ve worked together with BrashMonkey to create a new export filter to create sprite maps from Krita images. Based on the Photoshop plugin, this filter is still in its early stages. Plenty of known bugs, but very promising.
  • Compatible with TV-Paint, Fazek created a new export filter that can generated CSV-based layered animation projects
  • Turn your greyscale artwork into color with a gradient map filter. This wasn’t planned to be done, but we had a surprise special guest hacker Spencer Brown who submitted this feature out of the blue! Thank you Spencer! For the future, we want to make it possible to use the Gradient Map filter as a filter layer, but that isn’t possible yet.
  • Nicolas Guttenberg implemented the “Greater” blending mode to make it easier to create semi-transparent strokes.
  • There are still known bugs in the move tool, but it also got a really nice additional feature: Move Increment Multipliers for the Move Tool. (Accessible with shift+arrow keys)
  • The Crop tool, Assistant editing tool and the Straight line tool got an improved user interface, and the Straight line tool’s on-canvas preview has been improved as well.
  • Shortcut settings have been moved to sit with the other settings
  • The steps for the lighter/darker and similar hotkeys can now be configured in the settings.
  • The HSY selector’s Gamma can be configured in the settings!
  • New cursor options: single pixel black and white, for those who REALLY need precision.
  • Pixel art brush presets

3.0 Alpha 2(4th of February)

  • Shift+R+click onto canvas can now select multiple layers! Use this in combination with the multiple properties editor to rename a bunch of layers quickly, or use ctrl+g to group them!
  • Improved pop-up palette, now preset-icons are more readable (size depends on maximum amount of presets set in the general settings)
  • Tons of improvements to the color space browser: the Tone curve is now visible, making it easier to find linear spaces, there’s feedback for color look-up table profiles like CMYK, there’s copyright in the info box, as well as possible conversion intents, and overall just more extra info moved into the tooltips for a cleaner look. The PNG 16bit import is also alphabetised.
  • Hotkeys for Hue, Saturate/Desaturate, making a color redder, yellower, bluer or greener, as well as making lighter/darker use luminance where possible. The new hotkeys have no default key and need to be set in the shortcuts editor.:
  • HSI, HSY and YCrCb for the HSV/HSL adjustment filter. HSY and YCrCb can use the correct coefficients for most rgb spaces, but it isn’t linearisable yet, so not true luminance yet. Regardless, below a comparison:
  • The color smudge brush can now do subpixel precision in dulling mode: krita-smudge-brush-pixel-precision in dulling mode.
  • Add progress reporting when Krita saves a .KRA file

3.0 Alpha(6th of January)


  • Implemented a "Drop Frames" mode for Krita and made it default option Now you can switch on the "Drop Frames" mode in the Animation Docker to ensure your animation is playing with the requested frame rate,

even when the GPU cannot handle this amount of data to be shown. Show current fps and whether the frames are dropped in the tooltip of the drop frames button 1) The buttons becomes red if the frames a dropped 2) The tool tip shows the following values:

  • Effective FPS --- the visible speed of the clip
  • Real FPS --- how many real frames per second is shown (always smaller)
  • Frames dropped --- percentage of the frames dropped
  • FEATURE: Allow switching frames using arrow keys(canvas input setting)
  • Add "Show in Timeline" action to the Layers Docker
  • Let the current frame spin box have a higher limit as well/ Let the user choose the start frame higher than 99
  • We rewrote our tablet handling. If tablets didn't work for you with 2.9 or even crashed, check out the 3.0 branch.
  • Refresh Wintab context after tablet screen rotation
  • Move increment keys for the move tool! This is still under development, but we are sure it's basic form is appreciated.
  • We removed the 'move in/out of group layer' buttons. Moving a layer up and down will also pass it into the group.
  • Duplication of multiple layers
  • Shift+Delete shortcut to the Remove Layer action
  • Move Up/Down actions for multiple layer selections
  • Make Merge Down for multiple layers and selecting the right merged layer afterwards
  • Our shortcut system is now ordered into groups.
  • You can now save and share custom versions of your shortcuts.
  • Krita now has Photoshop and Painttool Sai compatible shortcuts included by default.
  • You can now switch the selection modifiers to use ctrl instead of alt. Useful if you are on Linux, or prefer ctrl to alt.
  • anti-aliasing edges on popup palette
  • simple color selector now has white on top and black on the bottom.
  • updated ICC profiles.
  • Added a Smudge_water preset to make smudging easier.
  • Added printing of the current FPS on canvas when the debugging is activated

2.9.9 (5th of November)

  • Improve performance by not updating the image when adding empty layers and masks.
  • Add a ctrl-m shortcut for calling up the Color Curves filter dialog. Patch by Raghavendra Kamath. Thanks!
  • Show a message when trying to use the freehand brush tool on a vector layer

2.9.8 (10th of october)

  • Improve performance when adding new layers. (A blank new layer doesn’t need to make Krita update

the entire image)

  • Add a Save Profile checkbox to the TIFF and JPG export filters: you can now save TIFF, JPG and PNG images without an embedded profile.
  • Fix saving PSD when the image has a non-transparent background. Krita has an option to change the default color of the image when all the layers are transparent (available in 'Image' menu). PSD doesn't have this feature so now Krita just creates an additional 'Background' layer if the image has non-default background color.
  • Layer Styles with noise speed improvement
    • Now the randomly generated noise is cached inside Krita, so recalculation of Layer Styles containing any noise effects became much faster.
    • Illustration by David Revoy (2nd of September)

  • Allow 'shift'-modifer after dragging an assistant handle to snap lines.
  • Add snap-single checkbox under assistant snapping.
  • Update brushes with optimised versions.(Basic_tip_default.kpp, Basic_tip_soft.kpp, Basic_wet.kpp, Block_basic.kpp, Block_bristles.kpp, Block_tilt.kpp, Ink_brush_25.kpp, Ink_gpen_10.kpp, Ink_gpen_25.kpp)

  • [FEATURE] Make color picking with shortcuts work in Wrap Around mode
  • [FEATURE] Make Fill Tool work in Wraparound mode!
  • [FEATURE] Implement 'Scalable smoothness' feature for Stabilizer smoother

  • Slow down updates for randomized brushes.
  • added convert to shape for selections
  • Added Trim to Image Size action
  • Optimie dodge and burn filter.
  • [FEATURE] Multiple layers merge with layer styles on Ctrl+E. (1) "Merge selected layers" is now deprecated and you can use usual Ctrl+E to merge multiple selection 2) Mass-merging of layers with layer styles works correctly now 3) Merging of clone layers together with their sources will not break Krita now.)
  • Make color to alpha work with 16f channel depths
  • Add new shortcuts (Scale Image to new size = CTRL+ALT+I, Resize Canvas = CTRL+ALT+C, Create Group, Layer = CTRL+G, Merge Selected Layers = CTRL+ALT+E, Feather Selection = SHIFT+F6 )

  • Add an 'hide pop-up on mouseclick option' to advanced color selector.
  • [FEATURE] Make brush 'speed' sensor work
  • Allow preview for "Image Background Color and Transparency" dialog.
  • [FEATURE] Selection modifier patch is finally in! (shift=add, alt=subtract, shift+alt=intersect, ctrl=replace. Path tool doesn't work yet, and they can't be configured yet) (19th of June)
