  2. The issue is yet to be addressed. It has been mentioned as a development priority though.
  3. You can also do it like this. Ctrl+C the layer you want to reduce, Ctrl+Alt+V to paste the layer to a new image, Resize that new image to 87%, Ctrl+C this new shrunken image and finally go back to the original image Ctrl+Shift+V to paste it as a new layer and then you can just hide the original size layer.
  4. Is there a way to turn off the are you sure this is what you want your picture to look like thing at the end of saving? I just spent two hours working on a piece and forgot to press okay on it and I lost the picture

  6. Mine does it too. I'm using a Lenovo touchscreen laptop. The stylus cannot make small marks or detailed lines. I have to start moving the pen first without it drawing any lines until it starts drawing. NO settings changes make any difference.
  7. Okay. Thanks. That is what I was afraid of. I really wanted to be able to start with a percentage reduction of the image (I'm trying to duplicate a picture but put in a different image reduced by the same percentage and was finding it hard to 'eyeball' it accurately), but the more I played with it, the less it seemed feasible. Maybe I'll try the algebra approach and do the math to reduce the actual pixel height to 87%, but I was trying to avoid that - lol. So, can I put in a "would love to see" request for a way to reduce a selected image by a percentage, or to have a 'percent of original selection' added to the status bar, maybe? Anyways, I really appreciate you time and advice. God bless!
  8. In Paint.NET, all layers are the same size. If you want to resize the contents of one layer, independently, press Ctrl+A to select the whole layer* and use the handles to resize the content. Press and hold the Shift key during the resize to maintain the ratio. *It is not necessary to select the entire layer. I just gave that as a simple example.
  9. Thanks for the quick replies. Okay, the size does change, so it would appear it's resizing both layers (and changing the zoom) at the same time. Can I not resize the image on one layer independent of the other layer? I'm trying to resize the image on layer 2 to fit in a frame on layer 1 so would like to resize and tweak in the one file if possible.
  10. ...or you could check the image size before and after. Find it in the Status Bar

  12. This issue has been around forever. Here is a thread from 2016 (mentioning a thread from 2010) about the issue: Anyway... Here is one solution: Or, you could draw a circle and select the left half of the circle, copy it, paste it and use my plugin Effects > Flip Horizontal to mirror image the half, and position it for use.
  13. I'm going to guess that the resize worked just fine. It just didn't LOOK like the resize did anything because after the resize your zoom level changed. Check the lower right corner of your Paint.NET window to see the zoom level before and after the resize to see if it changed.
  14. Hi, I'm a pretty novice user when it comes to, but I'm pretty sure I'm doing this right. I'm in Windows 10 using the App and have a picture I'm trying to reduce the image size of by 87%. I have two layers and after selecting the layer I want, I have tried using SELECT ALL and square select tool, respectively, to select my image, but the result is the same every time. I pull up the resize box, select the percentage option and type 87 and enter. The image blinks, and I see the layers in the layer box jump as if they are switching places (but they don't), but on the screen the image size remains unchanged. The file size, however, is reduced. I saw something in the beta thread about a Windows update 1903(?) correcting a resize issue for another user, but I have both that version and the app store says my app has been updated, so I'm not sure what to do next. Any ideas? (I have used the shift+drag method to reduce a picture before, but I need a specific percentage this time, and I don't see anything that shows a shifting percentage while I'm dragging, just the pixels(?)xpixels(?) size)
  15. @zaya! Thank you so much for the new version.
  16. @welshblue! As promised: another one. Thank you so much for your time, and effort.
  17. Dear @lynxster4! 💐 Beautifully and creatively made. Thank you for sharing your result!
  18. OK. Sorry for the wall of text. I just felt inspired. And I was a bit triggered by the other thread replies I saw. Eh. Glad you don't need to be convinced. Sad that it is much more complex than I hoped and that obviously explains why it is not yet implemented. Have a nice day and thanks for your contribution for the greater good. P.S., I don't know what make it so complex, but if I can help anyway, let me know. I was just wondering if there was not a "simple" solution that would make it safe for everyone or let's say more safe (e.g., a kind of backup of unsaved buffer each X mins, maybe a dumb idea, I don't know...).
  19. This is way too much to read, I don't know why there's so much text here. tl;dr yes I know about this, I want to implement it, it's just a complex thing and it's not at the top of the priority list. Not much to talk about really. No need to write a novel to try and convince me.
  20. Yup. You can add apps to an exclusion list, or just turn off that terrible feature altogether.
  21. This isn't a bug, it's intentional. Even actions in the History that have been undone are considered to be "unsaved changes." The only state that is exempt from needing confirmation is when you've opened an image and literally done nothing to it.
  22. I just don't understand why it happens on all versions now. I thought it's a bug in the newest version.
  23. Excellent job my friend That floor works much better IMO ... and not having the gif dithering shows much better how much of a great job you've. Those screw thread contacts look freakin' real 😯 Nice sentiment in the text. My wife must be a halogen bulb ... costs more to run 😣 Will be back with a rep ...
  24. Here's my final render as a wallpaper, if anyone wants it. I changed the wood texture and added a lens flare.
  25. I was getting the same. As a work around for now you can draw small circles on a larger canvas and then copying and pasting onto a smaller canvas eg. 20 x 20 15 x 15 and they're fine. Alternatively draw on a larger canvas and then crop to size ... admittedly a bit more work (seconds) but it does the job either way
  26. I've actually had problems with the plugin myself so I'm probably not the best guy to answer. However I will: the install is slightly more complex than usual: you have four files to install: two to the root of the PDN folder ie. straight into the main PDN folder. The others two go into the "FileTypes" folder which should be adjacent to the Effects folder. It may be it is not created by default if you do not have it. So you might have to make it for yourself, as shown. NB. That plugin's readme says that any other existing SVG plugin's content must be removed. There is something odd though in that if you actually click on the link for the latest version, under the Moderator's Note, you're sent to the Git Hub page for the 0.3 Alpha version. That is just a single DLL you put in FileTypes. If you do then you can open SVGs no problem but there is no Save/Save As: SVG option. The link to the plugin lower down with the four files to install is the one I first tried too but, even though I'm pretty sure I installed it correctly I had display issues with the test SVG I used. It needs someone who knows more than I do to explain. But none of this actually helps Yoo who can't actually find the original image file now. Presumably it was been cached by PDN which is why it can attempted to be opened but the actual picture, however it was saved, is missing from the "images" folder where it was thought it was saved. This seems like a weird case because even if the original image being worked on was a SVG and somehow it was opened by PDN if either Save or Save As was used then it should have saved as one of the supported image types eg. default.pdn, in the folder intended. I hope installing the SVG plugin allows the image to opened and saved correctly but I'm not confident it will.
