Krita on Elementary OS

Krita is a stunning, open-source drawing and image editing application that works a lot like Photoshop. Til recently, it hasn’t been available out-of-the-box for Elementary OS. There were certain dependency requirements that couldn’t be met by default, but that’s now been addressed with AppImage!

Check out the bottom of this article for info: Krita 2.9.11 and the second 3.0 alpha build
