  1. The code determines the new color value of each pixel based on a function of the values of the surrounding pixels. The radius determines how far away from each pixel it looks for values. EDIT: see BoltBait's post above
  2. The Gaussian blur is factoring in the transparency outside the selection for its calculations.
  3. Try this plugin: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=7644
  4. Here's a somewhat convoluted method that might work (but might be more trouble than it's worth, too): 1. Download these two plugins - http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=31670 http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=17516 2. Use the animation helper plugin to save the frames as separate .png files. 3. Open a new image and go to Layers>Import from file... and select all the file you created. This will open them all in their own layers in one file. Check the layers window to make sure they are in order. You should now see all the frames overlapping each other. Check/uncheck layer visibility as needed while you work. 4. Once you are done with editing, use the PNG sprite matrix plugin to save it as a sprite sheet again. I'm not sure if that's any easier than what you are doing now, but unless someone makes a new plugin to do what you are asking, that's the best workaround I could come up with. EDIT: that wasn't particularly helpful. I'd try what EER suggested instead.
  5. It depends on what you're using it for. Paint.net is super user-friendly and is great for both photo editing and rendering cool stuff, especially with all the plugins that are available for free. There are tons of plugins you can find that will do things you'd never even dream of doing with Photoshop. However, if you're looking to do digital painting and need extensive brush features, you will find Paint.net to be somewhat inferior. The 4.0 update helped a lot, as it allowed for soft brushes, and there's a custom brush plugin available as well, but it's still a long shot from being photoshop in that area. Otherwise, I definitely prefer Paint.net to its competition.

  7. Welcome to the forum, JMS11482! This is quite an old thread, so I will be locking it momentarily (see forum rules). There has since been several plugins created for printing that make things much easier. The one I like to use is Simon Brown's Printer+ plugin. If you would like to continue this discussion, feel free to start a new thread with a link back to this one. Thanks!
  8. Happy Birthday Rick Brewster!

    I can never seem to catch these on time... Happy birthday!
  9. This plugin could help: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=15476 Add a new layer and create a graph with two vertical and two horizontal cells. Adjust the layer blend mode so you can see the map through it. Lines cross in the center. EDIT: it just occurred to me you are looking for coordinates and not just the center. In that case, I don't think a plugin is allowed to tamper with those things. Sorry. EDIT 2: you can try editing your minecraft map with 0,0 in the upper left instead. The absolute value of the coordinates in minecraft will then correspond to the pixel coordinates in Paint.net. You can use command blocks to set the player's spawn point somewhere else if need be.
  10. "Colored Eye"

    Merged topic from general discussion. Please ask questions about tutorials in the tutorial thread in question. Thanks! As for your question, try this: 1. Select the iris and pupil as you would normally with the ellipse selection tool (hold shift to constrain to a circle) 2. Hold the "alt" key and deselect the pupil (again, hold shift to constrain to a circle) using the same tool
  11. Triangular Bevel effect?

    Use this tutorial on a triangle: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/27764-realistic-roughcast-metal/ Minus the crystallize distortion of course
  12. Rather than merging layers individually from the top down, you can use "flatten" instead so the image doesn't change. If you just want a group of layers merged rather than all of them, the method that does the least damage is merging from the bottom up (merge the bottom two layers in the group and repeating instead of starting at the top)

  14. Creating logo from photo

    One thing you should note is that the white areas in the logo you gave as an example represent shadows in some places and highlights in others. Using plugins to get the effect will be good for making a rough outline at best, as they will only bring out one or the other. For best results, I recommend using the line/curve tool to trace out the key shapes in the picture for your final product using the quick methods as a guide.
  15. What you're looking for is called a "mask" Select your image and copy it, then use the Alpha Mask plugin to do what you're saying to a white canvas
