Krita 3.1.3 Minor Update of the Open-Source Digital Painting App Is Now in Beta

Since last week’s Alpha release, Krita 3.1.3 received quite a lot of attention, as the development team managed to add various improvements to saving of PNG files, which is now much faster due to the fact that the default PNG compression was set to 3 instead of 9, with the end result having the same size. Furthermore, the digital painting app will now use the name of the filter from the Filter dialog when creating a filter mask instead of “effect,” makes sure that the startup dialogs are no longer covered by Krita’s splash screen, and uses native color selector on macOS, as the custom color selector can’t pick screen colors on this platform.
