  1. My husband and I have had both shots and are members of House Pfizer. Last night, we actually went out to dinner -- first time in 14 months. We sat on an outside patio with a friend from out of town (who has also had both shots) and talked for hours. We'd almost forgotten what it was like.

  2. This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it I quickly pulled this together for anyone having trouble understanding how to properly use ShapeMaker so all the drawing 'modes' render correctly. Step 1: I used the 'Cubic Bezier' tool with 'Snap to Grid' turned on and 'Linked with previous Line' turned off. I toggle between Zoom 10x and 5x. I always place my first node in 10x on the flattest part of the shape. I then draw the rest in 5X and zoom back up to 10X before I place the last line. I place my final node (1) square away from the beginning node and use 'Close Contiguous Paths' button to complete the outline. That's how you get the 'closed line' symbol shown in the Path List. Step 2: I chose this as my 2nd line because it completely intersects the outline shape. An example of why this line is cloned: Step 3: Step 4: I choose to do the center flower next, as it creates a great 'anchor' point for all the other lines. Step 5: Step 6: Step 7: This may be an on-going tutorial. As questions are asked, I will add more images to explain. Hope this helps everyone new to the ShapeMaker plugin!

  3. Posted updated images to the tutorial to reflect the UI changes made in ShapeMaker by @toe_head2001 a while back. Better late than never!

  4. I have now had both doses of the vaccine, no side effects from either aside from arm pain at the injection point for a few hours.

  5. I had my second Pfizer jab yesterday. Like others, I've had a worse reaction than the first time. Sore upper arm, joint pain, headache, fatigue, slight fever for about 24 hours. I feel much better now.

  6. Suggested workarounds: 1. I've found it easy to get into the habit of Ctrl+V Ctrl+D (Paste and Deselect) when I paste. Very quick. The D key is close to V, and no need even to lift finger from the Ctrl key. or if you want to keep the selection: 2. Ctrl+V S (Paste and switch to Rectangle Select)

  7. Yes. Make the layer you want to work on not visible. Press Ctrl+Shift C Open Liquify Right-click From Clipboard

  8. This updates fixes and optimizes palette generation when saving at 8-bit depth or less, and also fixes any remaining issues with using "Auto-detect" for bit-depth. A new effect, Quantize (in the Effects -> Color menu), has been added, some bugs have been fixed, and bundled file type plugins have been updated. Here's a simple example of using Quantize to reduce the # of colors in an image. You can also apply dithering, just like you can when saving an image at 8-bit or lower bit-depth. You can also choose between the Octree (default) and Median Cut palette generator algorithms. Octree is generally the right choice, but Median Cut can occasionally be quite useful. 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 update sooner by going to ⚙ Settings → Updates → Check Now. You can also download and install it directly from the website. List of changes since 4.2.15: New: Effect -> Color -> Quantize, which applies palette reduction to 256 colors or less, along with dithering. This is the same algorithm used when saving images at 8-bit color depth or lower. Fixed and improved palette generation when saving at 8-bit color depth or less Greatly optimized performance of palette generation and image quantization Added option to choose between Octree (default) and Median Cut algorithms for palette quantization when saving at 8-bit color depth or less Fixed a crash in Move tools when the selection was 0-width and/or 0-height Added tooltips w/ shortcut keys to the Tools dropdown in the toolbar Fixed IndirectUI ColorWheel rendering (thanks @toe_head2001!) Fixed a crash in the Text tool when using Ctrl+(Left,Right,Backspace,Delete) (thanks @Bruce Bowyer-Smyth!) Changed: New layers are now filled with #00000000 instead of #00FFFFFF Fixed a crash when working with selections (OutOfMemoryException) New: Effects can now access the Document's DPI via EffectEnvironmentParameters.DocumentResolution Fixed drawing of the color palette in the Colors window when using some non-standard DPI scaling settings (e.g. 1.15x) Fixed a crash when using @Ed Harvey's Threshold plugin Fixed the return value from PdnRegion.GetBoundsInt() so it's not anchored at (0,0) unless it should be Fixed premultiplied-to-straight color conversion on some code paths (thanks @null54!) Updated bundled AvifFileType plugin to v1.1.11.0, which includes performance optimizations and bug fixes. See its GitHub releases page (https://github.com/0xC0000054/pdn-avif/releases) for more info. (thanks @null54!) Updated bundled DDSFileTypePlus plugin to v1.10.9.0, which uses an updated version of DirectXTex (2021-04-06). (thanks @null54!) Enjoy!
