  1. I believe Irfanview can open multi-layered TIFs. You'll need to save it in a format which will preserve the layer structure if you wish to edit it in paint.net. Irfanview does not support saving in paint.net's native *.PDN or even *.PSD format. REF: http://www.irfanview.com/main_formats.htm
  2. I like that @toe_head2001! If you added the info from your previous post it the chart would be awesome
  3. TonyN is visiting us from Spain. He may not have English as his first language. I believe that Pixey and BoltBait made the connection: TonyN is talking about the Effect dialogs opening in the center of the screen. @TonyN The dialog opens in the center of the screen by design. You can't change that. What you can do is move the dialog by dragging it by the title bar (the blue strip in Pixey's image). Oh, and welcome to the forum
  4. You can open PS files with the PS plugin. To change the text you're going to have to delete the existing text and replace it.
  5. PNG's support frames & animation. Try this Filetype plugin BTW: seen this? http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/17516-sprite-animation-helper-v-094-updated-october-28-2016/
  6. You'll get a larger palette and much nicer transparency if you switch to *.png. GIFs are limited to 256 colors and use dithering to fake more colors. Plus GIF only has one alpha (transparency) setting - on or off. With PNGs you get a huge palette and an alpha channel with 256 different steps.
  7. Will @Red ochre's Flourish plugin do the job?
  8. Brilliant.
  9. @earthangel paint.net does not remove plugins or fonts when updating. The only thing you might find following an upgrade, is one or two older plugins which might no longer be supported. Can you give us a specific example of a plugin which is going 'missing'?
  10. The image might have layers if it was a PS file...
  11. Too intricate IMO. I thought the 'objects' were going to be simpler. An Egg, baseball bat, cup, smoke, etc..., Look how many entries there were for the baseball.
  12. Yeah. Naah. It's a Jabberwocky
  13. Hi! Welcome to StickMan. A plugin which helps position & animate a stick figures like the ones above. The interface uses a simple click-n-drag system. You click and drag the stick figure's 'joints' around to move the figure. The segments' lengths remain fixed as a joint is moved so the entire figure can be moved by dragging a single joint (if you drag it far enough). Note: Stick figures are rendered to the active paint.net layer in the currently selected Primary color. Loading and Saving of your figures and poses is supported. Files are saved as *.stk files. These are not image files. They are XML data files which store the figure and pose. You can create your own stick figures! There is a guide in the PDF manual (Help > User Manual - once you access the manual a copy will be placed in your Effects folder). Edit: I've added the manual as a separate download as some systems have tight security settings which don't allow the automatic creation of the PDF from within the plugin. Stick figures can be anything you wish (within certain limits). How about a spider? Or a snake? StickMan Info Summary A plugin which helps position & animate a stick figures Author Ego Eram Reputo Installation Download my Plugin Pack and unzip it. Run the *.exe installer (written by BoltBait). Restart paint.net. Menu Look for the StickMan plugin in the Effects > Render menu. Compatibility StickMan works only with paint.net 4+ - or so I thought! @dipstick has confirmed that it (unexpectedly) works with 3.5.11. Manual StickMan comes with built-in guides and a manual in PDF format. See Help > User Manual. Once you access the built-in manual a copy will be placed in your Effects folder for future reference. EDIT: I've uploaded the manual as a stand-alone PDF. Get it here StickManManual.pdf Russian Translation @ReMake has translated StickMan (including the Manual) into Russian: Stickman_ru.zip Thanks ReMake! StickMan was made with the assistance of TechnoRobbo, Red Ochre and BoltBait Thanks guys!
  14. Light between Oceans 6/10 Meh. Weak characters and fairly contrived plot. The attempt to redeem the plot by adding 11th hour moral 'twist' did not work. Fassbender was wooden. I know he was supposed to be a recovering war vet, but he played the character without emotion. My partner and I had high hopes for this film. Lacking any sort of empathy for the main characters we struggled to finish it. Jack Thompson playing the salty, wise old Captain was the most enjoyable character.
  15. I'd add a new layer with a contrasting rectangle in it the exact size of the original text. When the image is resized the rectangle will also resize, in proportion. Use the Text tool to fill the rectangle with replacement text (hint: type first then use the font size control to adjust the overall size). You can position the new text with the four way arrow icon.
  16. Here's another angle: would a plugin that showed Exif data be useful? Layer count: Ctrl + Shift + N = add new layer. It will have the layer number appended to the layer name. Ctrl + Z removes the extra layer.
  17. If you change the configuration of an image paint.net presents a dialog asking you to confirm the way you want it saved. Clicking to confirm is the way paint.net's developer (Rick) get you to take responsibility for the new state. For instance I recall instances of users who are annoyed their multi-layered image has been flattened when saving as a JPG. They clicked OK without thinking. That was a mistake. In short. I don't think there will *ever* an option to disable the prompt.
  18. Its a massive image. Expect any image processor to show a performance hit.
  19. Glad to hear it. p.s. put your plugins back now
  20. Please post your question in the TextPro thread: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/17056-text-pro-plugin-free-trial/
  21. First, try another keyboard. You may have a bad or failing one. Second: are you using a standard US language in paint.net AND your PC?
  22. 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.
  23. Hi TruePaintNetFan - nice username! It would help us if you give us a look at your system specs. Go to Settings > Diagnostics > Copy to Clipboard and post the copied text here.
  24. The OptiPNG plugin supports interlacing.
