— the Krita Question and Answers Site!

Published    27th November, 2018

With the help of the awesome KDE sysadmin team, Scott Petrovic has created — the Krita Question and Answers site.

In the past couple of years, Krita has become more and more popular. With over a million downloads a year, there are now so many users that it’s become impossible to answer every question for the developers. The forum, bugzilla, reddit, twitter — there are too many places where people ask questions that have often been answered before. Nobody reads a plain old FAQ anymore, after all. is a place where it’s simple to find out if your question has been asked before, simple to ask a question, and simple to answer a question. It’s a central place where, we hope, Krita users will get together and help each other. Like a stackoverflow site, or like


  • If you don’t know how Krita works, are new to Krita, or new to digital painting, read the manual.
  • If you’ve got a question about using Krita, use
  • If you’ve got a development proposal, art you want to share, want to discuss a plugin or a script you’re working on or want to share a tutorial or a tip, use the forum, or go to reddit, whichever you like best.
  • If you have found a bug in Krita, read the guidelines on reporting a bug, and report the bug.

Keep in mind that there are many hundreds of thousands of users, and only a few developers, so help each other as much as you can!
