    Shepard Fairey to create a poster "Hope" used the original manner of creating image in the style of Pop Art Let us try to create a portrait in same, or close to this manner. Open the suitable image. I used a fragment of a photo of Nicolas Cage. With any method accessible to you (with tools of selection the Magic Wand, Lasso Select) select a background and delete it (keys Ctrl+X). Apply to the image AA's_Assistant effect (Effects -> Object -> AA's_Assistant) with default settings. Convert your color image to black-and-white (keys Ctrl+Shift+G). If your image was black-and-white this step can be passed through. Apply to the image Advanced Greyscale (Effects -> Advanced Greyscale) or Advanced Greyscale effect (Effects -> Photo -> Advanced Greyscale) with the settings like in pictures below. As a result we have such image: With the Magic Wand select the sections of the image shown in a picture below. Copy the selection (keys Ctrl+C). Add a new layer (keys Ctrl+Shift+N) and paste selection into it. Set the color to #AAAAAA in the Colors window. Apply Lines/Grid effect to a copy of a layer with the settings shown in a picture. Switch to the Background layer. Run Gradient Mapping effect (Adjustments -> Gradient Mapping). Right-click on the left marker of a gradient bar and choose Change Color in the drop-down list. In the new dialog box enter #00202F in the field under a color wheel, click OK. Right-click on a gradient bar and choose Add Color in the drop down list. In the dialog box enter #E01825 in the field under a color wheel, click OK. Right-click again on a gradient bar more to the right of the left marker and choose Add Color. Add color #7498A4. Change color of the most right marker to #FDE5A9. Right-click on a gradient bar and choose Spread in the drop down list - all markers will be arranged with equal intervals. Check the box Prerserve Alpha. Click on the list under a gradient bar and choose Save current as preset. In the appeared dialog box enter a name of preset (I named it Pop_Art_Hope) and click OK. Note: you can download this preset (see below). Place it in a folder paint.net User Files\Effect Presets\Gradient Mapping. If this folder is not present, run a Gradient Mapping effect - the folder will be created automatically. Note: changing the colors of gradients, their amount and position of markers you will influence directly result necessary for you. Download: Pop_Art_Hope.zip Remove selection, switch to the Layer 2 and merge both layers. Add a New Layer (keys Ctrl+Shift+N) and move it below the Background layer. With Rectangle Select tool select a rectangle. Set the color to #7498A4 in the Colors window. Fill the selected area with Paint Bucket tool. Invert selection (keys Ctrl+I) and fill the left part of a layer by color #FF6868. Remove selection and merge both layers. Our portrait is ready! One more method. For this method, I used a photo of Bruce Willis. Delete the background and use the AA's Assistant effect as described above. Apply to the image Majority Color Effect by MadJik. Set the color mode in Reduce to primal colors. With the controls Radius of analyse and Color tolerance level achieve the desired image. Apply Gradient Mapping effect with one of the presets from Pop_Art package and finish work as it is described above. Note: All settings described in this tutorial are approximate and depend on image size and the desirable end result. Вариант на русском языке: Портрет в манере HOPE.

    ::keywords::edges|shading|halo|gossamer|cobwebs|outlines ::Menu::Effects/Iterative lines ::Original release date:: 10th of February 2015 ::Author:: Red ochre (John Robbins) ::dll name:: Gossamer Works on both Pdn 3.5.11 (old) & Pdn 4.0.5(current). Firstly, thank you to my fellow dwarves, TechnoRobbo and Ego Eram Reputo, for their help testing and useful suggestions. This effect works in two stages. Step 1: shows the 'edge' pixels it has found as red dots on a black background. Step 2: Draws lines from one edge pixel to another, with a choice of distance, colour and opacity. NOTE: if there are a large number of 'edge' pixels found or the number of lines per pixel is large, it can be very slow. However under normal usage it only takes a few seconds. Here is the .dll and below are some examples with screenshots of settings. Please post any images you make using it in this thread. I'd love to see what you can all make with it! Enjoy. Gossamer is now in my V10 plugin pack here: Red ochre v10 plugin pack

    Hello and Welcome I've been playing around with Paint.Net for about three years. The bulk of my work is made from fantastic tutorials written by great artists. I may have a few photo manipulations but I credit the majority of my work to the friendly people who make up this forum. A special thanks to Rick for writing this awesome program. Please enjoy and you are welcome to give me your opinion (good or bad). I have been urged to post this video! I was looking for something to do and found Paint.Net. This video was my very first project, before I knew about plugins and before I knew there was a forum that could guide me. I took hundreds of pictures and included the model cars that I built years ago. First I made a gif and got bored with it so I made it into a movie and put in sound effects using Windows Movie Maker.

    It's more convenient to download a frame from the internet, but for those who want to have fun... I am sure there are much simpler methods than the one below. I apologize for my bad English. Plugins needed: Object Align Polar Transformation 1. Start with a new canvas by 800x800px. 2. Add a new layer then draw a black horizontal line (press and hold Shift key) on entire canvas and a little in outside. In the Effect menu click on Object Align and choose Align Both. 3. Make the same thing like in the step 2, but for vertical line. Now click on Merge Layer Down button or press Ctrl+M keys. We have now a centered "crosshair" layer. 4. Add a new layer and move it down. 5. In the Colors floating window click on More>> button.Type in the Hex box: 7F0000. Click on swap Colors button and type in the Hex box: E2CD7F. Click on <<Less button. 6. In the Tools floating window click on Ellipse then draw a circle (press and hold Shift key). Click on Move Selection tool and move the circle to centered. Press G (gradient) an choose radial. 7. Left click on the center of crosshair and draw a radial shape from the center to the edge of the circle. Press Enter, Ctrl+D or Esc key to deselect. In the Effect menu click on Object Align and choose Align Both. Delete "crosshair" layer. 8. In the Effects menu click on Distort and choose Polar Inversion with following settings: You get a ring. 9. In the Effects menu click again on Distort and choose Polar Transformation with following settings: 10. In the Tools floating window click on Move Selected Pixels activate the rullers and resize to half = 400px (press and hold Shift key) and then (release Shift key) stretch it to the right. Duplicate the layer. Go to Layers menu and click on Rotate/Zoom... and rotate with 90°. 11. Now we need to cut the corners at 45°. In the Tools floating window click on Rectangle Select and draw a rectangle.Then press M key twice (Move Selection) press and hold Shift key and right click on the corner of selection and rotate in 15 degrees steps Look in to bottom of the window (Angle = 45°). Cut the selection. Select bottom layer and repeat the actions. 12. Make Background layer invisible then flatten limage (Ctrl+Shift+F). 13. Duplicate the layer, flip orizontal, cut the corner, Merge Layer Down. 14. Duplicate the layer, flip vertical, cut the corners,( both layers - Top and Bottom). 15. Merge Layer Down. You can use Adjustments>>Conditional Hue / Saturation plug in to change colours or Effects>>Color>>Metallize plug in. You can use a wood texture in another layer and set the blend mode to overlay.

    TechnoRobbo's TreeMaker This plugin came out of a conversation between Red Ochre and myself on different approaches of the algorithm that could be used on Red Ochre's Dryad. This was an example I offered up and I was not going to publish it since Dryad did the job in a much more creative way. Red urged me to post it,since it presented the users with an alternative. So here it is.

    Paint.NET is a very useful tool and does everything I needed from Photoshop. Except for one thing: in Photoshop it's possible to adjust the text kerning/spacing. This was not possible in Paint.NET and I couldn't find a plugin for it. So I decided to write one myself! Please let me know of any issues and/or feature requests! Download here: SpacedTextPlugin.zip It's under Effects -> Text Formations -> Spaced Text Tested on Paint.NET 4.0.12 Note: this plugin clears the layer on which it is used. Make sure to create a new layer when using this effect! Features Text spacing adjustment Automatic line wrapping Alignment to left, right or centered Configurable anti-aliasing quality Supports bold, italic and underline styles Renders inside selection Known issues No support for OTF fonts Source code is available from https://github.com/simmetric/Paint.NET-Plugins

    Time for more 'Stained Glass'! This is another textured glass piece. Here are (2) variations of the same image. Both have different coloring methods and plugins applied, but I used the Mosaic Maniac Collage plugin on both. That plugin is fabulous. Which one do you like best?? Please let me know!

    I present 'King of the Underworld' This was not intended as I was just playing around...and then, I saw 'him' in the abstract, so I ran with it. A bit macabre, I know, but an art creation nonetheless. This piece has thirteen layers (hahaha 13!) How ironic is that? WELCOME..... I hope I didn't scare you.

    TechnoRobbo's DistortThis! V2.7.4+ This is a distortion plugin (duh). Version 2.7.0+ adds manual value input and Persistent Data during session. Version 2.6.6 Adds X & Y Symmetry Option (Suggested by Pratyush) Version 2.6.5 Updated Render routine - to avoid potential issues Version 2.6.3 adds more control to Forced Perspective Version 2.6.2 -better preview. - select work area to distort. - better forced perspective Hidden Content: Version 2.5.3 Faster Version 2.5.1 will work with selections Version 2.5.0 Larger interface -Click and Drag Handles - single pixel accuracy Version 2.2 release fixes the full frame bug - allows more free form shapes Version 2.0 for PDN 4.0 Alpha Transparency for Concave Shapes also Faster - Streamlined Hit-Test Algorithm Controls default to Full Screen and Transparency Version 1.5 adds AlphaTransparency to Convex Shapes Version 1.7 allows you to create accurate perspective distortion Normally DistortThis! warps images as if your pulling stretching then corners. When Perspective is on the image is distorted as if it were 3D!!!! Menu: Effects->Distort The controls: V2.6.3 Forced Perspective Forced Perspective works by assuming that the short edge of the target polygon is closer to the vanishing point and the longer edge is closer to the viewer. Sometimes this may not be the case so 2.6.3 introduces the ability to adjust the amount of forced perspective to compensate..

    This is my version of fiery text. The basic idea is to use Clouds, Dents, Red ochre's Furblur, and my Hot Metal Glow. It also uses BoltBait's Paste Alpha. The exact order and settings can be changed to get various effects. For this example: Create a new image. Use Adjustments>Invert Color to make the background black. Add a new (transparent) layer. Make sure it's the top layer. Change the Primary Color to White by switching the Primary and Secondary Colors. Type the text into the new layer. Run Blurs>Furblur with the following settings changed from default: Repetitions: 30 Main Length: 30 Angle Variation: Main Angle Only, Curl Clockwise. Angle variation: Double S-Shape Run Blurs>Motion Blur with the following settings: Angle: 60 Distance: 5 Run Distort>Dents with the following settings: Scale: 12 Refraction: 30 Roughness: 14 Tension: 5 Quality: 3 Add a new Layer. On the new layer, run Render>Clouds with the following setting: Scale: 46 Copy the text layer to the clipboard and make the layer invisible. Make the Cloud layer the active layer. Run Object>Paste Alpha with the following setting: Alpha source: Clipboard alpha Run Color>Hot Metal Glow with the following settings: Incandescence Threshold Temperature: 150 Red temperature: 880 Yellow temperature: 1260 White Temperature: 1400 Red to Orange Shift: 0.544 EDIT: In place of Hot Metal Glow, you can use pyrochild's very flexible Adjustments>Gradient Mapping plugin with the Hot gradient.

    I've been playing around with this piece for months trying to get it 'just right'. If I don't publish it now, I never will, so I present another stained glass technique that I think is realistic. Rippled Stained Glass: I hope everyone enjoys it!! I've followed BBQ's suggestion in post #137 and posted a revised image which really makes the butterfly 'pop'!

    Thank you everybody for writing all those nice things about my house picture and such ! I'm sorry but I've been out of commission for a while and unable to work at the computer. I don't know how much I can participate in the near future. It's out of my control. I do appreciate all the well wishes though! I feel bad about not being able to comment in peoples galleries as well as mine. I want to thank Red for the Galleria nomination! I'll try to live up to those standards with future work. Thank you very much Pixey for standing in for me! Hearing some of the comments made me feel lots better and your help was much appreciated. Reps later...

    Before we get started on installation instructions, please read this NOTE ABOUT SOURCING PLUGINS: All reputable Paint.NET plugins are released via this forum. Either get them from here, or from links posted here. DO NOT TRUST PLUGINS FROM ANYWHERE ELSE. Please - it's for your own good. In addition, please do not post any links to third-party sites hosting Paint.NET plugins. This means that if (1) you don't own the site and the plugin, or (2) it isn't a link to forums.getpaint.net, don't post the link. To locate plugins by name or author, or to download the free listings (updated monthly) - see Ego Eram Reputo's Award-Winning Plugin Index. If you have already downloaded plugins from another source: Remove and uninstall all files you have downloaded from that site. Update your antivirus software's malware definitions. Run a "full" or "complete" scan with your antivirus software. Report the site to one of the moderators on this forum so we can consider whether to take action against it. You should follow these steps as soon as possible. It may take some time, but it will save you lots of recovery time later. Finally, if you see a suspicious link on this forum, don't click it. Report it to a moderator immediately via the "Report" link at the bottom of the post so that we can keep the links on this forum as trustworthy as possible. We can help tell you whether it is legitimate or not. Now, back to your regularly-scheduled plugin installation instructions. -The Mod Team --- I think this is a good Idea, Rick may not, but in this section there should be a stickied or at least a thread for installing plugins, there are a bunch in general discussion, and it should be covered here, if the creator didn't give instructions. Download the file, I personally save to desktop, then extract, move the extracted file to my desktop, then close the windows. Go to My Computer, then find C Local Disk Find Program files, and find Paint.NET, and find effects, place the .dll file in there, if it is a filetype, find filetypes in the paint.NET folder. If you have paint.net open while you install it, close it and open it again to access it.

    Q: do you want a realistic image of a person or a cartoon one? If you're going for realism, I think the legs are too short for the body, but the knees too high. I also think the shape of the legs is wrong (trust me I know what I'm talking about here). Ref the demo image below: Arms: I've set the shoulder back and extended the upper arm. The elbow & forearm are flexed - slightly more than the upper arm. Chest: Slightly deeper and more rounded. Waist: dragged in to give some more shape to the torso. Torso: shortened. Legs: reshaped & repositioned. People don't stand on their heels - so the feet have been shifted back approx half their length. I've given him some 'meat' in his legs (arms too) to beef him up. Gif: before & after.

    I have tried both Mixgoom's and MJW's methods and not only on text. I'm aware I probably need to work more on the details, but I think my preliminary tests are approximately acceptable. I believe the combination of Furblur and Dents provides more realism to either chosen method. Follows what I did. With Mixgoom's method (plus some Furblur + Dents): With MJW's method:

    Organigram has had a little update, with a handful of new options: Render Spokes: deselect to stop spokes from being drawn. Render Center Bubble: deselect to stop central shape from being drawn. Spoke Length Increment: Use a value (+/-) to increase or decrease successive spoke lengths. Spoke Angle Increment: Use a value (+/-) to increase or decrease the successive spoke angles. These make it possible to create spiral charts like this:

    Good evening; Here is a plugin that I use to create logos; I share it if you want to try it. On the other hand it is in French, if really you find it interesting I will try to translate it. For the plugin you can add as much annotation as you want to your image, then to apply an effect to your text you have to be careful that it is selecting :: The plugin is in Effect ----> CreaText ------> CreaLogo There it is, thanks Rogers.dll

    March Update Yeah, I know. I'm a day late Just as well we have these neat new plugins to make us happy again DICOM FileType Rapido Adds loading support for DICOM image files (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine). The format is used for medical imagery. NB: place both *.dll files into /Filetypes/ Flourish Red Ochre Create calligraphy-like spirals, swirls, flourishes and tendrils. Possibly mustaches too. Many options to control the shape. MyCreaLogo roro69 NB: French language plugin. Creates wordart syle text transformations. Many options. Paste Warp + MJW An enhanced version of TechnoRobbo's Paste Warp plugin (all new code, same algorithm as the original). New features include the ability to move and scale the clipboard image, antialiasing and a number of clipboard tiling modes. Temperature / Tint Adjustment BoltBait Adjusts photos to tune the image temperature (blue through orange) and tinting (green through magenta).

    Besides Advanced Greyscale, it's also possible to use TR's Color Reducer or Red ochre's Poster as alternative effects for dividing the picture into the different sections Other than that suggestion, I did another test on Katniss Everdeen: And since I am a fan of Chicago P.D., here's one poster on the series:

    Okay I should have a fix for this in the next update, even if Firefox doesn't fix anything on their side. Paint.NET has a prioritized list of formats that it goes through. If data isn't available in format 1, it will then try format 2, then format 3, etc. However, if any format throws an OutOfMemoryException, the whole process stops and is aborted. The fix is that an OOME won't cause an abort. The format will be retried once after a full garbage collection is forced, and then if it still won't work then the next format will be tried. And it works great with whatever Firefox is doing.
