  1. Hello, I use Paint.net to scan books. Is there a shortcut to get to the "Scan using…" dialog? File Acquire From Scanner OK B&W Scan Thank you.
  2. Color Palette

    I had the same problem, and had to google for this. The color palette was gone, and no trace of it in the View menu. F8 does display it, although IMHO, it'd make sense for all the tools windows (Colors, Layers, etc.) to be listed in View, ready to be shown/hidden.
  3. Draw bell curve?

    Thank you.
  4. Hello, I'd like to use Paint.net to draw this type of graph: Is there an easier way than using the Line/Curve tool to try and draw a curve that would look like the above? Thank you.
  5. Thanks. I installed both plug-ins since they are mentioned in the tutorial. Maybe I didn't run the installer correctly before: Now, I can see a bunch of Vandermotten.*.dll in "c:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects. For newbies like me wanting to do the same thing, you only need the Drop Shadow plug-in, and use the Lasso tool: For each picture you want to edit… Use the Lasso Select tool to select a wavy ripped edge on the picture. Delete the selection with DEL Perform the above steps for all the pictures Create a new picture, and copy/paste the pictures you just edited. Thank you all.
  6. I don't have it. Do I need to perform extra steps after 0) stopping Paint.net, 1) unzipping the DLLs from the AA's Assistant zip files into Paint.NET's Effects sub-directory, 2) running the Drop Shadow installer, and 3) restarting P.net? Here are the files I have: Directory of c:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects 04/05/2014 14:54 13.312 AA's_Assistant.dll 25/10/2011 19:54 9.216 Alpha2Gray.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 7.168 Alpha_to_0.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 7.168 Alpha_to_255.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 9.216 BlackandAlpha+.dll 25/10/2011 20:31 10.752 Burninate.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 13.312 CircleText.dll 25/10/2011 19:27 9.728 ColorBalance.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 12.288 dpyColorBalance.dll 28/10/2011 15:23 8.192 Dream.dll 03/02/2017 16:45 0 files.txt 19/01/2017 01:13 17.408 FillFromClipboard.dll 19/01/2017 01:13 18.432 FillFromFile.dll 25/10/2011 20:33 7.680 Flip.dll 19/01/2017 01:13 23.040 FloydSteinbergDithering.dll 25/10/2011 19:28 10.752 GaussianBlurPlus.dll 28/10/2011 15:07 8.704 Gray2Alpha.dll 19/01/2017 01:13 11.264 GridCheckerboard.dll 19/01/2017 01:13 124.416 HSVGradients.dll 19/01/2017 01:13 444.928 HueSatPlus.dll 25/10/2011 19:29 11.776 Landscape.dll 19/01/2017 01:13 560.640 LevelHorizon.dll 19/01/2017 01:13 12.288 MemeMaker.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 10.240 Metallize.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 10.240 MultiThreshold.dll 25/10/2011 19:29 8.704 ObjectFeather.dll 19/01/2017 01:13 66.560 ObjectTools.dll 19/01/2017 01:13 12.288 OilPaintingPlus.dll 25/10/2011 20:34 10.240 OldFeather.dll 26/08/2008 17:38 10.240 Outline.dll 25/10/2011 19:45 10.240 PasteAlpha.dll 25/10/2011 19:39 10.752 Pastel.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 12.288 Perspective.dll 25/10/2011 19:30 10.752 PhotoAdjustments.dll 25/10/2011 19:31 11.264 Polygon.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 8.192 pxEexpansion.dll 28/10/2011 15:25 1.489 Rainbow Palette.txt 19/01/2017 01:13 374.784 RemoveDust.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 13.312 RotateText.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 13.312 RotateTextSUI.dll 04/05/2014 09:52 11.776 Rotate_Zoom+.dll 19/01/2017 01:13 486.912 SeamCarving.dll 30/10/2011 09:18 21.504 SelectionTools.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 16.384 SpeechBubble.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 24.576 SpiralText.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 39.936 Textplus.dll 25/10/2011 19:32 9.216 Transparency.dll 19/01/2017 01:13 21.504 VignettePlus.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 15.360 WaveText.dll 04/05/2014 14:54 24.576 WaveTextSUI.dll
  7. Thanks for the help. The video is for an older version, and the menus are a bit different. So I went throught the "Corrugated Cardboard" tutorial, but am stuck at Step 14: Even though I installed the two plug-ins (by copying the DLLs in "c:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\" and running the installer, respectively), there's no plug-in named "Drop Shadow" anywhere in the Effects menu: Has it been renamed recently? Thank you.
  8. Hello I'm a Paint.Net newbie, and was wondering what is the simplest way to combine two articles with a torn paper effect as shown in the attachment. Thank you.
  9. Hard to draw a rectangle?

    I'll piggy-back on this thread, since I'm stuck at drawing a shape. I added four screenshots, and would like to draw a shape on top of the screenshots. Problem is, for some reason, it's drawn on the Background layer. Even adding a new layer and drawing a shape doesn't solve it. I tried CTRL+D, nothing. Then went looking in the different menus for a clue, to no avail. What should I do after pasting multiple screenshots in a picture, before being able to add a shape? Thank you.
  10. Hello I googled before asking, but still can't figure out how to resize a selection like I could in PaintShop. I attached an example. After choosing the "Rectangle Select" tool, I select part of a picture. Next, I'd like to be able to change its size, before hitting Image > Crop to selection. How can I do this? Thank you.
  11. Preset shapes such as arrows, etc.?

    Effects > Render only contains basic shapes, not arrows. I'd rather some ready-to-use solution instead of having to learn how to write brushes. I'll see if there's a free alternative to PSP. Thank you.
  12. Preset shapes such as arrows, etc.?

    Thanks. I'll check if those packages have arrow-styles shapes available.
  13. Hello One thing I'm missing from PaintShop Pro are the preset shapes like arrows and such: Is there a way to get those in Paint.net? Thank you.
  14. Drawing curved arrows like PSPro?

    Thanks for the tip. For those interested, here's the plug-in: http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=23957
