  1. WOW! That all makes sense to me. I cannot wait to try it, but it has been a very long day and I have about used every brain node available. That is a good idea to duplicate what is there to get the idea complete before trying what I have in mind. First, copy then put my own spin in on it for my actual project. Thank you!
  2. I want to create a design similar to the attached. I have tried to create the original square and duplicate to create a line. By the time I get a couple of the squares done, everything is moving out of alignment. Even if I get something aligned, at the cost of several hours, when I save it and reopen it, the lines are fuzzy or askew. I have been using the jpg format and possibly that is not a good choice. I have also been using a resolution of 3000, is that an appropriate size. Mostly the finished product is about 68cm (15") square. Is there a trick to doing this? Is there a dll to assist me? Where do I begin? I think I am not doing an efficient/effective job with my Paint program. Is there a place to learn basic edits from the beginning? I am probably doing more effort than necessary for simple issues. Thank you, you have always come through for me. I do appreciate this group. May you be blessed in ways you have not yet imagined. Pat

  7. I am seriously seeing that the 'cloud' drives are not exactly what they are touted to be. I also am having issues with the EdgeFader. I don't have 'transparent' yet, maybe that is the problem?? Thank you so much for your input. Thank you and best wishes to you and yours, Pat And for all Dad's out there - stateside, we celebrate today as Dad's Day. One day per year is truly not enough. Pat
  8. I downloaded Paint again and downloaded each of my dlls again. They are working now. My problem is - I have is issues with my pc. Almost every day I have to do something to my pc to keep it working. (That in itself is a long story.) I placed my dlls on OneDrive and attempted to use them. these were working dlls. But stopped working when I loaded them into the Effects folder. I am totally frustrated. I have had my machine at HP 3 times and Tech2U once but no one can find the problem with my pc. Reloading the dlls - which are the reason I use PDN and are wonderful - takes me hours. I know you are not techs for pcs, but this issue, IMHO, is likely to occur again. I wonder if there is a place/way to have a backup to my dlls. Thank you for responding and listening. May you be blessed in ways you have not yet imagined. Pat
  9. I have had (and donated multiple times) Paint.Net for years. I love the cooperation and work done by those so much smarter than I. I am having strange computer issues. My Windows 7 HP 64 bit laptop was repaired at a Tech2U shop 3 weeks ago. Paint has worked for all that time but the dll's have stopped showing in the working area the last few days. They are present in the Effects file, but do not show up on the Effects Menu. I have downloaded the program twice and the dlls once. Nothing changes. The only other download that occurred around that time was Glary Utilities. I have also used that program for many years too. Any ideas? A Million thanks to any kind soul with concern and/or answers. Pat
  10. When I try to download that Mosaic Maniac, it shows that the URL is gone. And, I really need a photo collage, is this one for photos too? or just for isolated positions on a page? Am I looking in the wrong place?? Pat
  11. Thank you so much, I knew it would be something right in front of me! Love your work, reviewed each piece and appreciate the information of what was used. Bookmarked and will return frequently. May you be blessed in ways you have not yet imagined. Pat
  12. Thank you for responding to my "Mother and Child" transparency issue❣❣ This work is amazing, just what I need to help me take my work to the next level. Thank you for finding me, you are talented and very organized. Bottle up a little of both and send them my way. May you be blessed in ways you have not yet imagined. Pat
  13. I am making a photo that will be round rather than square/rectangle. I placed a dense, 45 brush width, around my object but I cannot change the circle to transparent. I want the inside to stay and everything, including the circle and outer edge to be transparent. - I cannot figure it out. I can get rid of the outer edges by using the wand but it is a landscape of a tree and the leaves are all sorts of greens with light between some of the leaves, not to mention the branches. I am using the eraser to get rid of the leftovers. I cannot manage to get close to the 'perfect' circle. I even tried using the rounded line but I am not getting the transparency from there either. I think I would use the paint bucket to change the color. But I made the color 'transparent', used the bucket but it is not transparent. How would I make a large, round circle transparent. (Tried to upload 309 kb photo, I don't know if it worked) Pat
  14. Thank you for the interesting take on this Forum. Geeze, I could win for the dumbest error but I made it just yesterday. . . . Congratulations to all the winners and losers as well. There are actually no losers around here because Paint.net is the best and have the best support system anywhere. Free software and free support. That other program is just wishing to be half as good. ➺ Paint.net ROCKS❣ Well, I am off to ask another question. May you be blessed in ways you have not yet imagined. Pat
  15. WOW! That fixed it quickly. Thank you so much. People helping people on the Internest makes it the best place❣ May you be blessed in ways you have not yet imagined.
