  1. Sorry ........... Mea culpa - just noticed that @Toe says on a 'transparent background'. I'd remembered the 'plain' background, but not the transparent. Won't do it again Also, I'd forgotten to 'follow' this thread, so didn't see the comments till now .
  2. Hi @CraigS81 and Welcome . It's a bit tough to tell if you mean you have downloaded a PDN file with layers - as @MJW mentions above. If it's a plain template from the web, then it wouldn't open with more layers. Please see here for doing a simple color to a template. You would upload the template, which will show in layer 2. Then you can select the inside of the car with the magic wand then make a new layer and add the color. If you want to expand what you have downloaded you will have to select the layer and, using the Rectangle Select Tool and pull on the nubs at the corners. Hope this makes sense .
  3. Ooooooo - that is very colorful indeed . Looks like a Golden Utopia .
  4. Looks like a dragon fly @AndrewDavid . Don't know if you've seen this tutorial I made for how to use Midora's Animate Plugin - which is here.
  5. Sooooo purdy @lynxster4 and, as @Max said, they do not look cheap at all. Very soft and colorful and would look lovely on a window pane

  7. Hi @RoosSkywalker - I'm afraid that @TechnoRobbo is no longer active on this site, so any modifications to the Plugin are not very likely .
  8. It's working fine for me in v 4.0.13 . P.S. Although it's no longer showing up in the Render sub menu - it's now in the main Effects window.
  9. Many thanks @Dippy for the Ball Maps .
  10. Hi @Beta0 & @AndrewDavid. I am standing-in for @Woodsy who is unable to work at his computer at the moment, as he's unwell. He's told me that he feels bad he can't comment on here, but I am keeping him up-to-date with your lovely comments, which makes him very happy. Hopefully he'll be better soon .
  11. Ahhhhh - A conundrum image .
  12. Nice result @electrohock777. Welcome to PDN . A few pointers: 1. When you have completed your work you can save it in PDN format for editing, but you also can Flatten and 'Save To' .png (or gif - but .png is better). 2. You then need to upload the finished work to an outside host - like Photobucket or Imgur. 3. Copy the IMG link from the above host(s) and then copy that code into your post on here. Then we can see the image without having to download your PDN. Hope to see more work from you .
  13. Many, many thanks @Seerose and @Maximilian .
  14. Welcome to my Gallery. It's hard to believe that I've been playing with PDN for nine years. Where does the time go? I have learned so much from many of the very talented people on here like Helen, Barbieq, Oma, Welshy, Goonfella, AFG, Yellowman who have been such an inspiration.

  15. Hello @Eagle. It is not a good idea to revive old posts (this one is 10 years old), as requested in the RULES: 11) Don't reply to very old threads. Also known as "reviving" or "resusitating" old/dead threads. Also called "necroposting" (eww). If there has been no discussion in a thread for, say, 3 months ... then it is dead. Do not reply to it -- pretend like it is locked. If you reply to it, then the thread will be immediately locked and your post may be deleted. Please just create a new thread if you have something to say about that subject. However, this rule does not apply to The Overflow, Tutorials, Pictorium, or Plugins sections of the forum. A new thread will probably be a better idea .
  16. Oh dear .... I really made a dog's dinner of that post . I edited the duplicated one and forgot to check the other. Many thanks to those who look after me
  17. Such lovely designs @Seerose. I especially like the 1st one, which looks so silky and would make a wonderful cushion cover .
  18. Thank you @IRON67 - I forgot to check the links before posting .

  22. My violin I made many moons ago.
  23. Thank you very much @mackenzieh . Yes, I based the apples on a tutorial that I used called Glass Yellow Tomatoes. Principally it's a combination of that tutorial and Helen's Glossy Orbs. I use Helen's technique of using the base image in order to select it and keep the shape the same. Keep going back to it, select it, then make new layers and play with gradients/colors/blend modes, etc. I began with making only One Apple and then followed the tomatoes steps, using the PDN Tools that best match the tutorial. i.e. where it says, "click quick mask", use the magic wand to select the fruit (on Global) then make a new layer and then use BotBait's Outline Selection. When you have finished the fruit to your liking, flatten and save, then go back and Un-Do the flatten and play with the Color – Flip colors – on various layers until you get another color you like. Flatten – Save – Un-flatten again and continue changing colors again for another fruit. I drew the stalk separately and shaded it accordingly. Hope this is of help .
  24. Thank you @Red ochre - for dropping by to say that . @lynxster4 Thank you very much indeed
