Main Page

Welcome to Krita's documentation page. Krita is a sketching and painting program designed for digital artists.

As you learn about Krita, keep in mind that it is not intended as a replacement for Photoshop. This means that the other programs may have more features than Krita for image manipulation tasks, such as stitching together photos, while Krita's tools are most relevant to digital painting, concept art, illustration, and texturing. This fact accounts for a great deal of Krita's design.

This manual is a wiki and can be edited by anyone. If you would like to help, you can log into the wiki after registering for a KDE Identity account, and check the Contributor's Readme. The bulk of this wiki consists of the reference manual, but we encourage users to contribute tutorials for Krita as well. If you create off-site content, such as videos and step-by-step screenshot guides, let us know, and we’ll put it up a link to share with everyone!
