Lydia's Shapes * 04/20/17 - COMIC BOOK, 60s & 70s, Hamsa, Astrology

86 posts in this topic

 

New 4/20/17

Astrology Chart Shape Pack:

 

There are 10 xaml files. Next to the astrology signs include abbreviations of what the name of the sign is so you know. Just erase them but at least you know what astrological sign you are dealing with when they are symbols or star constellations.

Below is a sample image of what you can do with some of this...and just imagine if you are better at using PDN than I am.

NEW: 04/16/2017

I had a project I did to help a friend so I'm sharing those shape packs. It's been awhile since I used ShapeMaker but it's like riding a bike.  There are 3 new shape packs. One is "Hamsa", the other is "Comic Book", and the third one is "The 60s & 70s". 

 

The space allowed for uploading attachments is pretty much full so if I ever add more shape packs I'll need to delete shape packs I've already uploaded. So if you noticed some are gone, that's why; to allow more space, but I don't have any more shape packs to upload at this time, so, currently, there's no need for me to delete anything. I don't know if we are allowed to offer files if we upload them from places like Dropbox, Yandex, etc. If that's the case then that's a solution, if needed.

 

I hope some of you find these of use or enjoyable....Lydia

 

This first, "Hamsa".

Here is a big kit. It's Sugar Skull (Calavera), which is part of Dia de los Muertos; a festival celebrating and honoring those who have died because the dead would not want their loved ones sad since those who have passed away are with loved ones.The zip file is below the sample image. There are many traditional shapes and many shapes made to decorate your skull. Lynxter's gemstone pack could also be used for decorating skulls, as diamonds are often seen on the top center for decorations, as well....but, of course, you can decorate it with whatever you want. The "papel picado" (banner flags) were made with shapes that already come with Paint.Net 4.0 and higher, as was the heart. The skeleton can be put together to show different poses (standing, dancing, playing guitar, maracas, trumpet, etc). You use the same arms and legs but make a copy and "flip" them for the other side. Enjoy this kit.  It's yours.

OK, I'm a PDN user considered NOT even remotely aware of all PDN can do, but I'm doing my best to change that. So, for a 'fledgling' user to give a crack at using the ShapeMaker plugin, here is what I made. I was going to delete them after practicing the use of ShapeMaker but JUST IN CASE anyone out there might like them or might want to use the 3 piece Snowman Shape Pack, here you are:

 

Special thank you to those at this forum, as someone is ALWAYS around to offer help, and many have. Impressive.

Well done, Lydia (Scrapbook)! Great for a practice run. I love your preview pic; you obviously put a lot of effort into it.  

 

Have an early Christmas cookie... :mrviolet: !

I look forward to more shapes.

Really nice Shapes Lydia!

 

The Snowman is lovely. Really well formed. The only suggestion I have is to change the name.....

 

You can do this by editing the XAML in a text editor. Change the DisplayName where currently it says "SecondSM1".

<ps:SimpleGeometryShape xmlns="clr-namespace:PaintDotNet.UI.Media;assembly=PaintDotNet.Framework"
		xmlns:ps="clr-namespace:PaintDotNet.Shapes;assembly=PaintDotNet.Framework"
		DisplayName="SecondSM1">
	<GeometryGroup FillRule="EvenOdd">
		<PathGeometry>

Alternatively you can reload the Shape into ShapeMaker and type in a name in the Shape Name text box.

 

Scarf is not properly filled when using the filled Shape option. This is not too much of a problem, but it does indicate that the Shape is in need of a minor tweak.

 

Both the Scarf and Hat are showing a bad format when ShapeMaker attempts to open them.

Thank you for the kind words. I figured someone would get around to helping me with it after they actually saw the two tiny issues, and that's very appreciated.

 

I will remove it until I can figure out what you just explained to me, which I think I can handle it.

 

I see the issues you see but when not actually used for a shape while using PDN they looked normal when in ShapeMaker, that's why I was confused as to why it happened upon dragging the image onto the canvas via the Shapes tool.

 

Once I tweak those mystery lines, I'll simply put it back up. Thank you for the help.

Awww - that snowman is adorable - well done ;) .  Glad you managed to upload your file in the end.

 

The images can look OK to the naked eye when not magnified.  I always zoom x 8 (Ctrl + zoom) at the end of a project - disable snap to - and look very closely at the ends to join up, which will be more apparent when zoomed-in.  Also, a stray line may appear when one clones something and then forgets to move it.

 

Good luck with the edits :InkSketchEffect: .

Very sweet of you for the kind words....But, temporarily, Mr. Snowman and his accessories are in the Snowman Hospital *sad face*

 

YOU ARE AWESOME...you may have helped me with the issue I posted on another thread just now, but at the actual plugin thread...on another note, my ShapeMaker plugin only has Zoom x 2 ability : (

Thank you for letting me know about how to change the name of an .xaml file WITHIN the file. I was able to figure that out easily, within seconds after opening Kaxaml to do so with. I thought the file name could only be changed on the "outside of the file", per se. Again, thank you, Master Yoda

Thank you for those nice words too.

 

Please see the other thread for what you may not be doing in order to get the larger magnifications ;) .

Zoom button toggles view size to 2x

 

Shift + Zoom button toggles zoom amount from 2x (default) to 4x

Ctrl + Zoom button toggles zoom amount from 2x (default) to 8x

Thank you Pixey and EER, between the two of you, I have figured out some important things to keep in mind when using ShapeMaker.

 

Also, Zooming in x8 is absolutely needed. X 12 would be even more helpful but, hey, I'm just thankful for x8 zoom.

Wait a minute, this shape wasn't created with ShapeMaker. It uses a different format that ShapeMaker can't load. How did you make this shape?

LOL....seriously? I used ShapeMaker. I, like you, figured it out mostly by just tinkering with it. The manual was beyond too technical for me. The video helped me some, too. So, whatever I'm doing, I'm doing it in ShapeMaker.

Before many of us get busy dealing with the coming holiday, I wanted to leave you with my dragon I made.

 

This shape file is 11.5kb.
