    Echo ... Echo I was a bit sceptical when I unwrapped 2 Echo Dots and an Echo Sub for Christmas ... but I'm impressed. The sound isn't BOSE or Sonos but still, a very passable 2:1 system for the price ... in fact I'm so impressed I decided to ... Happy New Year to all my friends. May 2020 bring you everything you want Blwyddyn Newydd Dda i Pawb. Mwynhau

    If you have my plugin pack installed, you can do it this way: Open the graphic Select all, copy Make your edits Effects > Object > Paste alpha (clipboard alpha) Now you have applied your original alpha to your new image.

    The human brain is an amazing thing. It starts working the day you’re born and doesn’t stop until you take a test or talk to someone attractive.

    Thank you, dear friends It's one of the very few things that actually turned out well this year. I guess we're bound to keep on the road somehow despite the many setbacks

    I use that too. I've had a few email exchanges with Klocman its creator - friendly, helpful guy and the uninstaller works well so I usually suggest either that or Revo when these sorts of matters are discussed. BTW Happy Christmas and happy new year everyone here.

    There are a few newer coding fonts available these days: Cascadia Code Fira Code JetBrains Mono Anyone using these?

    Looks like I didn't fully test HiDPI when I changed the font to Segoe UI. I'll get that fixed.

    Congratulations to @welshblue, @Pixey, and @Vagabondi! I Welshblue's winning entry was most impressive. I thought a straight-on view was difficult enough; I didn't even consider attempting an off-angle view. Really liked Vagaboni's tangled-tape gag, which was a clever idea, well-executed. Thanks to Pixey for hosting!

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsforbusiness/end-of-windows-7-support This means no more updates, especially security updates. This will put it in the same place as XP and Vista, which nobody should be using anymore. I don't yet have a concrete plan for when Paint.NET will stop supporting Windows 7, which is when Windows 10 will become the minimum OS version*, but the clock is ticking. Maybe 1 year after, maybe 2 or even 3, it's not set in stone yet, but I'm not going to be able to support Windows 7 indefinitely. Please upgrade to Windows 10. I know a lot of you really like Windows 7, and that's a perfectly fine opinion, but supporting it does hold back Paint.NET's long-term progression and you have to know I can't support it indefinitely. Windows 7 has had a great run! It's currently 10 years old! Celebrate that, and then upgrade to 10 You've got time, so don't panic, but definitely include this in your planning. * let's just forget Windows 8/8.1 ever happened, just like we never say the word "Vista" out loud ...

    Yes, I really like Visitant @welshblue. I'm not for Ghouls, but this image is really good. I believe in this kind of thing and I actually had an 'experience' with-the-other-side, about 46 years ago. I won't go into the details, but I'm a believer 😱 Am out of Reps right now - I'll be back 🧐

    I agree with @lynxster4, creepy image, but it's very well put together. I myself haven't had any supernatural experiences, but my wife has. We went to this hotel to tour since it was notorious for having supernatural occurrences, and I didn't see anything happen. She said the last time she toured the place with a friend they saw a lot of stuff happen, TVs turn on, objects move, etc. Creepy to hear about, but again, never experienced it first hand.

    Hello @porkchop and Welcome to the forum Short answer - you can't increase a small font and have it readable. Do your text on a new layer and then merge it with your banner. I have done this on your size of 400 pixels x 150 pixels and this is what I get:

    This effect is a result of a writing by me CodeLab - First Steps (Linocut) tutorial. You can find it: Effects -> Artistic -> Linocut This effect is imitates the linocut technique. It has a simple and intuitive interface. A Tool Size control defines the width of the contours of the image. The Details control determines the amount of detail in the image. The Inverse checkbox to invert the colors of image. Compatible with both: v3.5.X and v4.0.X Linocut_en.zip Linocut_ru.zip Before: After: After when the checkbox Inverse is marked:

    Yeah this is a bug with the "hold spacebar to pan" functionality. I've got it fixed for the 4.2.9 release, which should be gathering momentum towards release now that Christmas break is almost over. It happens if you switch to a tool (any tool) and then press spacebar before the mouse has made any contact with the canvas. The "last mouse position" is initialized to NaN (not a number, kinda like null), but isn't checked against that before it's used when trying to deal with the "spacebar pan" functionality.

    Thank you @Vagabondi for nominating 'Three Tigers'. It was a surprise 'Christmas' present! ☺️ Thank you @Drydareelin for the nice words. I always enjoy your 'spacescapes'.

    Sounds to me a if the OP is either using the Windows Store or has downloaded from a dodgy site littered with other install buttons for PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and has accidentally installed WinZip or, more likely, some other totally unnecessary unzipping tool or download 'manager' which is now trying to tap him for money. Definitely uninstall (using Revo) whatever it is. I'm with HyReZ on this: use 7Zip or PeaZip, the former by preference; it will unzip almost anything and compress almost anything except to RAR. Like most other similar programs 7Zip will open RARs no problem but WinRAR is the only (legal) software that can archive in the RAR format and as such is really the only archiver tool that you should consider paying for.

    WinZip is not required for Paint.NET. If the Corel Corporation (the current owner of WinZip) is asking you to buy WinZip, that's between you and them. I suggest you uninstall WinZip from your computer, but that's just my opinion; do what you want.

    "May I offer you some feedback?" (c) - Wine Country Each work is a little wonder in its own way. Icy cherries - probably this one caught me first and the process of pixeylization * started. The violin is cool - it is true that music can be seen (the glasses add a nice detail, too). Crazy Dancing - I swear I could see figures in them even before clicking on the thumbnail. Blue is a gymnast at the end of the performance. Red is a ballerina. Green is oriental and Yellow - let's leave it to imagination Those shiny glassy apples - don't know whether I want to taste them or gaze at them. This portrait is what they call artistic vision. The elephant is a cutie. These birds are touching and funny. That one = luxury. The mp3 player teases one to make a playlist. I'm not really into jewelry but I look at yours and I'm like, how many items are left? Contact me please! The perfumes - yes, add them all to the cart! We live once. The Typography - no words... The Journey - for a moment I thought it was simply a photo and you had applied some effects - and then - wait, did she make it all from scratch? And so on and so forth... Honorable mention. Your latest Graffiti entry is adorable. The others are fine, yes, but there's something about the third one that I can't explain. A form of casual magic. More than a decade of not commenting on @Pixey's art - is that a way to spend one's life? NO. Consider it a compensation. And thank you. ___ *Pixeylization (noun) - comparatively new and not-fully-researched phenomenon of turning a passerby into one of those creatures who virtually sold their souls to PDN and actually won from the deal.

    I rewrote this tutorial because after 2009 there were new plugins that allow you to achieve the same result with fewer steps. For example, the Tone Gradient Angle by @Red ochre proved to be a suitable replacement for Normal Map by @stinger. In my opinion, I was able to simplify the tutorial.

    What a gorgeously realistic result for knitting @lynxster4 I had a bit of trouble around step 7. I couldn't get the trail to work until I deleted the white background. Trust me to get something wrong .............. but that's me and is so typical

With offset, widening, blur, opacity and a color picker. Duotones: "Duotone Light" and "Duotone Ink on Paper" adjustments.

    @LionsDragonI do like koi images. There is something intrinsically elegant (to steal your words) about koi fish. 2 new ones that I completed after them sitting for about a year in my "to finish" box. The outline for the ducks was made with Curly Lines. An experiment really & from that came My Lobster's in Love - Polar Inversion Plus. Mandarin Ducks My Lobster's in Love

    This tutorial will do what you are looking for, though it isn't quite the "one click solution" you want. With a few run-throughs, though, you will find it really isn't as complicated as it first appears.
