  1. That's easy! It even gives you instructions in that link, though they are tailored to photoshop use. One of the main differences would be (in this example) to create the question mark above the text on a new layer, after this: - Select the question mark with the magic wand tool - Change the layer to the background text layer - Change the "Hue/Saturation" of the background text layer (to make it black, or your colour of choice) - Remove or hide the question mark layer. That'll work for the question mark. The text is pretty much the same deal, in fact, it's easier, if anything. Yo
  2. Thank you! Unfortunately, the plugin looks quite complex considering it's purpose. A simple key-bind would be great that would create a new node only when the line tool is activated. Without a new window. I might actually try out the recent version, I've got nothing to lose!
  3. I had a look into it after you mentioned 4.0, looks very promising! I'm tempted to download the alpha...I might just have to if I continue this poster binge I've got going right now.
  4. Hahaha, what can I say...I like pixel perfection! Oh brilliant, there's a 4.0 coming along the way? Haha, yeah, I'm pretty sure there aren't many programs that can cope with images of this size...
  5. I've got an SSD for my OS, and the main Paint.net files are in my SSD also.
  6. I have yet another question... I would group these together in one thread, but because they're indiviudal questions, I see that as a poor choice. Anyway, one last niggle that I have (for now) is the zoom level... I have used Paint.net a lot, but the RAM optimization query brought me here. For some reason, the zoom limit is capped depending on the image size. E.g, in a 7200x10800 image, I can only zoom to 303%, making a lot of the small details impossible to edit. Is this intentional and is there a workaround that allows me to uncap the zoom so that I can, for example, view a 10x
  7. Thank you! It typically runs quite smoothly, it's not unbearable fortunately. That post has given me some insight into the architecture of the program, at least!
  8. That's unfortunate...But I have found a very good alternative. You can curve lines with left-click, however, they curve in a way that effects the angles of each of the other nodes. If you use right-click, you can 'bend' the line, pulling it in a certain direction to maintain or even add a curve.
  9. Hello! I have another question, and was wondering: Is it possible to add more than 4 nodes onto a straight line? I find that with what I'm doing, the lines can sometimes be too angular in areas.
  10. Hey there, I was wondering, is Paint.net meant to consume so much RAM? I'm currently editing multiple 7200x10800 images and each one has a delay when performing certain actions. It's the same if I edit an image on it's own and shut all others down. My (relevant) computer specs are: CPU: Intel i5 3570k - 3.4Ghz GPU: Nvidia GTX660Ti - 2GB RAM: 1300Mhz - 2x8GB
  11. Thank you! It could use some improvements, but, it's good for a start! (: And thanks again for the help.
  12. And here it is... I think it looks alright...Not quite as good as it was on the original, but this is a higher resolution which I guess means more to spread meaning less detail for the same level of work.
  13. Excellent! Thanks for all the responses I think! Painting over the layer then using Gaussian blur to blend it in sounds like a very good idea! I'll certainly try that one, or may even combine all the techniques here to create a smooth mix. I assume that a radial blur will create a more organic and less pristine look than that of a straight-edged gradient? I may do that in the shape that Visual suggested! (: Excellent, that's vaguely what I intended, yes. However, the shape of the circles is still quite noticeable. Can you think of a way that'd make the circles less n
  14. Hey there, I've used Paint.net for quite some time, using it mainly for two-tone graphic art or pixel art. Quite a while ago, I created this cool effect that I'll demonstrate with images, however, I have literally completely forgotten how exactly I did it, and if you can figure it out (or vaguely what I'm explaining), I'll greatly appreciate it. Anyway, here's the walkthrough process of the effect, it's a fade in, making it seem like there are clouds at the bottom of the silhouette that cover the black of the lower layer while doing so in a way that is like a gradient, but of course, not s
