  1. This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it This is a tutorial on how to make the diamond text I used in my image. After much experimenting I think have finally come up with a method which I hope can be easily replicated to give a similar effect each time. Before you start you will need - a couple of stone textures. I made mine using the Stone 101 thread here. There are several to choose from. You can either make your own or I have added mine for you use. The Dotspecial font available on Dafont.com here. Boltbait`s Selection Tools available

  4. I tried it. It seemed to hang in the Initializing phase. Clicking on Cancel didn't help; it then hung in the Cancelling phase. I had to kill it with the Task Manager.

  6. Yes, that is a real screenshot of a Screenshot Capture utility running inside paint.net. I've only made the necessary changes to get it to run as an effect plugin, so it doesn't actually render anything to canvas yet (still spiting out a .png of the capture). There will be the obvious issue of canvas size, but I thought "why not... I'll do it for kicks".

  7. This must have taken a good amount of work to adapt. Let's see what we can do to put it to good use

  8. The image isn't too clear, so I can't tell exactly what is done. I can suggest a similar effect. Start with the image you want to use. Add an new layer (name it Text). (It will currently be the topmost layer.) Set the Primary Color to white. (If the Primary and Secondary colors are currently black and white, just switch them.) Using the Text tool, type in the desired text. (It will be white on a transparent background.) Duplicate the Text layer (name the new layer Shadow). (The Shadow layer will now be the topmost layer.) Set the Primary Color to black. Run the Drop Shadow plugin on

  9. Well done Ahmed. There is a small problem with the rendering because sometimes there are some empty stripes in the image (Win8.1 Paint.net 4.05)

  11. If you've written a plugin DLL with Visual Studio, you probably know that you can't really debug a DLL by itself. This becomes a sticky point for developing a plugin: how do you debug it!? Visual Studio has excellent facilities for debugging when you are launching an EXE, but for your plugin DLL it's a little more confusing. Note: These instructions do not pertain to CodeLab plugins. The trick is to set up your project settings so that you are actually launching Paint.NET! In this post, I will show you how. I have used this myself while developing some of the plugins I've posted in the past
