  1. Past hour
  2. Ed Harvey's Halftone works better than TR's regarding the surrounding transparency. Other plugins to consider: Alpha to dots does quite a nice job.
  3. 2 great tips today. Out of reps's but that deserves one Best solution after playing around with Trail etc Just remember to uncheck the Centre option. @MJW's Trail Blur may be better than motion Blur as you can play with opacity *** Extra thought ... if you use Trail Blur and lower opacity you can use the paintbucket and use the fill of your choice
  4. Today
  5. That's a great tip. Saves Ctrl + I then Delete All these years I never knew it did. Disabling sounds good ... (To both posts ... I know. Documentation. Read ...)
  6. I am trying it on a transparent layer. I finally got it to do something on a very wide font.
  7. Text must be on its own transparent layer. Fatter text works best.
  8. Sorry - but the bevel object appears to absolutely no impact on text.
  9. I find it useful now that I've become familiar with it. It is quirky because of it's similarity to this shortcut: Shift current tool 10 pixels Hold Ctrl + Arrow keys ↑ ← ↓ → (may not work with all tools) The trick is to use the arrow key first, then use Ctrl + arrow key combination to move by 10px (yes, I get it wrong often)
  10. Paint.NET doesn't have any fonts of it's own, it uses the font's currently installed to Windows, default and ones you've downloaded and installed from the internet. Here's a resource for default Windows fonts: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_typefaces_included_with_Microsoft_Windows
  11. Yesterday
  12. Hey everyone rn im on a mac and im too lazy to use my windows and i was wondering if anyone had a list of the Paint.net fonts an what they look like?
  13. @welshblue That was so bad it gave me a chuckle, so I'll upvote you for your effort. So, I thought I would search for bad chemistry puns, and found one. I present to you, Professor Cat:
  14. You may also look into Gimp. It accepts python scripts to process images using built-in filters and/or other scripts. It comes with a python console.
  15. Yeah this usually happens because of some other software or configuration on your system. G-Sync Windowed Mode is buggy as heck and definitely causes this.
  16. Does anyone actually rely on the “Ctrl makes a copy” behavior? This has always been weird, clumsy, and inconsistent in my mind. Can always just Ctrl C Ctrl V to do the same thing... (I suppose I can just disable it and see if anyone notices...)
  17. Thought experiment: 1. Draw your solid line on it's own transparent layer. 2. Duplicate the layer (next two steps use this new layer) 3. Apply Motion blur in a direction which approximates the width of the dotted band. 4. Apply Halftone to make the motion blurred gradient into dots.
  18. Hi splitframe - welcome to the forum That's correct. Using the Ctrl key allows you to move a copy of the selection. REF: https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/MoveTools.html#12 Just use the arrow keys without the Ctrl key
  19. What happens? When making a selection, for example a rectangular one, and you want to move the selected pixels by a fixed amount using ctrl+arrow_key a copy of the original is left behind as if you have had copied it before. What should happen? The selected pixels should just be moved without them being copied / the original being left behind unmoved. How to reproduce? See "What happens?"
  20. This happened because you added a data entry row, but didn't add any data on that row. Like this: I'll fix this later.
  21. Try disabling the 'Hardware accelerated rendering (GPU)' option in the Paint.NET settings. https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/SettingsDialog.html#2 Also , do you have an Nvidia graphics card, and have any G-Sync features enabled?
  22. Impressive plugin Crash with choosing Stacked Bar option in 3D mode ...
  23. Ah, I see, it is happening when you try to sort the rows of data by clicking on the column title. This happens because there is a blank cell in that column. EDIT: @xod This error is now prevented. Redownload.
  24. Very nice plugin! Thanks. First crash: Enter some data and click on Tuesday.

  25. ImageMagick would be a good option for you. https://imagemagick.org
  26. Okay, thank you for the reply
  27. No. Paint.NET is not designed to be used this way.
