    Island An island I made to see how much detail I can put in something with Brush Factory. Seems decent. 11-11-2018, made in 1 hour. Air Elemental A haphazard attempt at an impressionistic style I don't do. Not great. 11-11-2018, made in 2 hours.

    I've drawn many fireballs, but never kept or uploaded them. This is supposed to be a magical fireball (as indicated by purple/blue hues). Thought it looked cool. Added a quick background and called it a day. Done in 1 hour on 11/10/2018. Inspired by the fireball, I decided to make a lightning ball. Done in 6 hours from 11-10 to 11-11 in 2018.

    I'm putting out this beta build in the hopes that is squashes the crashes that I'm getting some reports of. I'm planning to put some more stuff into 4.1.5, and am planning to release it during the last week of November. Direct download link: https://www.getpaint.net/files/zip/preview/paint.net.4.105.6895.32684.install.zip Here's what's fixed/changed since 4.1.4: Fixed: Shortcut keys for the Adjustments menu weren't working until after you opened the menu for the first time Fixed: Canvas checkerboard, used to indicate transparent regions of the image, now scales with DPI Fixed some of the more rare cases of the SEHException/AccessViolationException crash due to Direct2D thread safety bug

    Greetings Sepdi, If your friend still has the original image before it was merged; you can add a File Type plugin to Paint.NET that enables it to read a PhotoShop PSD file as well as maintain its layers. Photoshop PSD file plugin (newest version: 2.5.0) https://www.psdplugin.com

    Install my plugin pack. In it, you'll find "Adjustments > Transparency" which will do what you want. Install pyrochild's Curves+ plugin. It can do all sorts of stuff like this. Never presume. Seriously, the source code to Paint.NET is a complicated beast. Adding even the simplest function is sometimes quite complicated. Rick, the developer, has to balance the difficulty of adding a feature by how many people will use it. It seems to me that you're not using plugins. If that's true, you're missing out on half the power of Paint.NET. After installing my plugin pack (link in sig), try looking around the plugin forum for other cool stuff. Plugins really are the icing on the Paint.NET cake.

    Try these.... Effects > Blurs > Motion blur. Angle around -123, Distance around 90 OR Effects > Blurs > Zoom Blur. Max out the strength setting. Center the effect in the U shaped part of the blob. Adjustments > Posterize. Link the sliders and use a setting of 8.

    I only said I was tempted Time to move on to another shape I've built. Reminds me of my childhood when we used to build and paint plastic models. Now we can do it with the tools @Rick Brewster has given us with this excellent app. Credit also goes to the others that have added plugins of course and those that take the time to write tutorials. To @welshblue and @dipstick - I will paint until I die.

    Sashimi makes me happy: I'm not normally one to take photographs of my dinner before I eat it, but damn, that was looking pretty awesome!

    The theme of this week's comp has been changed to 'Religious Symbolism'. This way everyone can participate if they choose. I saw the topic as a celebration of one's beliefs, not a desecration. I'm sorry if anyone was offended.

    This is a small update that fixes some important bugs and substantially improves plugin loading performance. Sorry for the random crashes -- it was actually a bug in Direct2D (a Windows component), and it took about a week to fully debug. If you’re using the Windows Store release, you should get the update automatically within the next 24 hours. You can also force an update check by following these instructions. For the Classic release, you should be offered the update automatically within the next week or so. You can get the updater soon by going to βš™ Settings β†’ Updates β†’ Check Now. You can also download and install it directly from the website. Changes in this update: Improved: Massive startup performance improvement when lots of effect plugins are installed Fixed a crash that would happen when closing an image, exiting the app, or sometimes just at random. This was happening due to a bug in Direct2D where ID2D1EffectContext does not honor the multithreaded initialization flag from its ID2D1Factory, and was thus corrupting its own internal data structures when released on the finalizer thread. Fixed: DirectX 9 GPUs can now utilize hardware acceleration again (in 4.1.3 they were forced to use software rendering) Fixed: The Black & White and Invert Colors adjustments no longer display an OK/Cancel dialog Enjoy!

    Thank you, BoltBait. I also appreciate the source code so I can look at it and study it. I'm about to take C++ for my last Computer Science class (engineering management major) requirement, so...
