  1. So glad you found My Gallery - the link to it is under my signature . Thank you for the very kind comments . Whilst I have the Photoshop 8bf filter plugin, and try it out almost every time I make something, I actually rarely use it. In fact I'm scratching my head to think of which pieces I have used it on. The plugins on here by our own developers are so good that I normally end up using theirs .
  2. 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.

  4. The theme this week is a – “Carnival/Circus Theme" which has been chosen by – @toe_head2001 (SOTW #165 winner). This week you're challenged to design and create a signature to look like a ‘Carnival/Circus Theme.’ Some examples are here. The deadline for entries is 7:00pm (UK time) 2pm EST on SATURDAY 29th of April 2017. To see how that equates to other countries, here is a link to the World Time Competition Rules 1. Max sig dimensions 500 x 200. Please NOTE: The forum limits signatures to 500 x 150, if it is too large do not try to use it as your sig. 2. Please keep your sig family friendly. 3. Keep to the theme that has been set. 4. You may modify or replace your image until the deadline! 5. Don’t violate copyright laws with found images; links to source images would be courteous. 6. Your entry must be made using paint.net, please don't use an outside image editor and try passing it off as PDN work. 7. There are multiple entries per entrant allowed. 8 . Don’t add links to larger versions of your signature, your entry should be voted on based on the size laid out in rule #1. Please keep larger versions of your work for your gallery 9. Signatures may be either Horizontal or Vertical. The winner of the current SOTW gets to choose the subject for the next competition. Good luck all and thank you in advance for entering. Thanks to - chrisco97, Sozo, TheHowler, Nitenurse79, Chimay, DrewDale & Pixey for keeping this comp going in the past. Previous comps have included the following topics as listed Here compiled by MJW. This list will, perhaps assist future winners with a theme. This thread is for posting your entries only. If you want to talk about any of the entries, you can do so in the discussion thread found here.
  5. Sorry to have confused you @Anybloodyid ............... I post a new image twice. I add one to the first page, so that all my work stays together, then I come to the last post in the thread and add another image so that: 1. It bumps the thread up to the top of the Gallery. 2. It saves people a step of having to go to the last page if they want to comment. Hope that makes some kind of sense and thank you @Anybloodyid for your lovely comment on my Gold Easter Egg . Thanks a bunch too, to @ReMake and @MJW for the Reps
  6. Thank you so very much @Maximilian @Seerose and @LionsDragon for your positive comments
  7. Hello everyone . I am going to extend the SOTW#166 - Carnival/Circus to Saturday 29th April 1974 in the hope that we may get more entries. (Scooter, Scooter - where are you?) (Maximilian too )
  8. That sure looks very cute @Anybloodyid and would be even better if it were bigger. Can I give you a few pointers, if you don't mind. If I'm not mistaken you are uploading your images directly into the forum? A much better way is this: 1. Upload your images to an outside host like Photobucket or Imgur. 2. With Photobucket - after you upload you can then copy the code for either IMG or IMGThumb and then post that into your post. 3. With Imgur you upload and copy the last 7 digits of your image code, then go to the little green dot in the black square on the top right Tool bar in this thread and you will get a pop-up window open. Add the 7 digits to this. This way your image will appear in your thread as a thumb which is clickable to a larger image.
  9. And how do I tell my cat - Felix - that he has a rat named after him
  10. Hi there @Charm Alas, your screen shot is not showing up. You need to copy the IMG or the URL code and paste. Are you quite sure that when you downloaded the Plugin that you : "copy PhotoShop.dll to: C:\Program Files\paint.net\FileTypes" and not to Effects!
  11. @Red ochre - Many thanks for dropping by ........ I hope you recognized some of your plugin flourish at work in there . @Woodsy - Thank you ...... hope you had a good Easter weekend too. Glad you are feeling better . @lynxster4 Many thankies to you . @hippiechos So kind of you to drop in to say such a nice comment. I see you joined us 2013 - hope you stay around a while .
  12. Delicious @lynxster4 . I want that red one on the top - yum
  13. Excellent work you have here - very creative and eye catching as well .
  14. I have rolled back from the Creator's Update and everything is working properly again. I've had a prompt since I rolled back, to let it update again, so I have just ignored it. Perhaps, when this is fixed I may reconsider - especially if I can't get out of the update prompt . FYI - I used this youtube video to do the rollback.
  15. I've found a video on Youtube to undo this. It says we only have 10 days after installing this Creator's Update to go back. I think I might do this.
  16. I too have noticed since I chose to install the Creators Update for WIN10 that Paint.net is very, very slow to respond, especially the Effects. Can one 'undo' the update?
  17. Happy Easter to everyone on the Forum .
  18. Poll will be open until Saturday 15th April 2017 – 7:00pm (UK time) 2pm EST To see how that equates to other countries, here is a link to the World Time Good Luck everyone and may the best man or woman win .
  19. That is so cool @DrewDale .
  20. Hmm ......... yes, I can see a face, but I can see other images too - like the statue of Liberty having a 'wobbly' . Great colors!
  21. Nice . But - Note: This guide is designed for laymen. What about us' wimin' !
  22. And ............. the Winners are: @toe_head2001 takes FIRST PLACE with 9 votes. @Woodsy takes SECOND PLACE with 8 votes. @IRON67 takes THIRD PLACE with 6 votes. Congratulations to you all . Very fitting that @toe_head2001 takes first place - as it was his Plugin . Thank you everyone for your exceptionally good entries. They were all amazing to look at .
  23. Hello @Anybloodyid and Please don't feel intimidated. We all had to start, like you, and I can tell you that my first attempt was nowhere near as good as this amazing bleeding heart you just posted. Please do begin a Gallery and post what you have made. That way we can comment and advise, if necessary. Happy PDNing
  24. Hello @ingwer and It's nice to have you on here. Your video tutorials are very well done and will be of great help to newbies .
