  1. http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/13003-evans-effects-open-source-as-of-october-16-2012/ Or you can duplicate your layer then choose Layers menu and click on Flip Horizontal or Vertical as you need. Move/Rotate your new layer to join with first. Flatten layers and save.
  2. The compromise solution is to increase the size of the canvas. Second color must be transparent before you increase the size of the canvas. I use this method for a long time. You can use the space bar and left mouse button to drag the image in any direction (PDN 3.5.11).
  3. SCARRIOR, if someone has a different opinion does not mean he's an idiot.
  4. To me it seems a good idea. How about applying this concept to Move Selected Pixels tool (with preserve the aspect ratio)? 100% - 75% - 50% - 25% Of course we can press the Shift key, but using such a concept it becomes faster and more accurately.
  5. I used welshblue's tute Chrome Effect Chain Links.
  6. Excellent plugin! Saves us a lot of extra work. Thank you. I think that intro - Genesis - it was not necessary. I like jokes, but I think now was not the case. How about "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain"? (Exodus 20:7) Edit reason: Add my attempt.
  7. Thank you all for your feedback. @ DrewDale - nice result. @ Seerose - I'm sorry that you failed. I feel somewhat guilty about your failure. Unfortunately I just lost my job and now I have no more time. I need to find another job. See you soon...

  9. Type your text with color on a new layer. Select it and then add a new layer and run one of the following plug-ins: Maze 1 or 2, Grid / CheckerBoard Maker Bricks... etc.
  10. Thanks EER, I corrected Polygons. Actually this tutorial was originally written using a plug in that is not listed on the forum and that only its author (I thanks again in this way) can reveal. So I had to change. I made many mistakes and I apologize. Unfortunately Google Translate does not help me very much. I hope, however, that pictures speak more and the others will forgive my errors.

  16. Well, I thought this topic is What music are you listening to? not Why listen to this kind of music? I like diversity and I like the guitar. I've not ever commented about the music listen by the others because: "De gustibus et coloribus non disputandum" (Seneca)

  20. This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it It's more convenient to download a frame from the internet, but for those who want to have fun...

Cut the selection. Select bottom layer and repeat the actions. 12. Make Background layer invisible then flatten limage (Ctrl+Shift+F). 13. Duplicate the layer, flip orizontal, cut the corner, Merge Layer Down. 14. Duplicate the layer, flip vertical, cut the corners,( both layers - Top and Bottom). 15. Merge Layer Down.
