  3. First method: 1. Ctrl+A=Sellect All (your image) 2. Choose Move Selected Pixels on Tools float menu 3. Hold Shift and drag to the corner 4. On Effects menu choose Object allign>>Center Both 5.

Expand Canvas at few pixels how match you want to be the border of image. Ensure you have tick Maintain aspect ratio and Anchor Middle then increase Width 5. Resize as you want
  4. First you need to change layers opacity (for SELL and ? layers). I used 30 for both layers. For quick selection with Magic Wand click on layer and then press Ctrl+I in layers SELL and question mark. Settings for Conditional Hue/Saturation for question mark: For text SELL I used only Hue/Saturation plugin:
  5. 1. Change Background color with Paint Bucket 2. Add a new layer 3. Type your text 4. Delete background 5. Save as PNG
  6. @precesh Another way is to use Adobe Acrobat (not Reader). Select the two (or n) images and then right click and from the context menu select Combine supported files in Acrobat... @ sashwilko Thanks, I had no idea of the existence of this plugin. And thank you especially to Martin Osieka.
  7. Make a file .txt on desktop, change the extension to .~sy then try to find it in Win7. No result. I use Everything Search for that. Make the same thing in XP and will be found instantly. The .~sy extension is used from PC Schematic for symbol backup files. Sometimes I need to delete these files and Win7 are not found it at all.
  8. Take a look here: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/17049-dpi-and-you-understanding-resolution-for-print-and-web/
  9. @marsa If you do PrintScreen in Word, you lose a lot of image quality. I suggest you to save the document as a PDF and then use Adobe Acrobat to save it as PNG. Adobe Acrobat allows you to save images at resolutions of 300, 600, 1200, 2400dpi and quality (and size in kB) will increase accordingly.
  10. DrewDale I understand, there's no problem, it's my fault and I will be more careful in future.
  11. 1. Add new layer 2. Type your text in this layer 3. You can change text color with Recolor tool or Conditional/Hue Saturation from Adjustments menu. 4. Merge Layer Down 5. Save As... http://lmgtfy.com/?q=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fforums.getpaint.net%2F+changing+text+color
  12. I think is a problem with your software. Transparent background must be ignored.
  13. Very useful and well written. Thanks Welshblue! @chimay12321 Stylized letter A in the center is impossible triangle I think. Very interesting!
  14. Thanks EER. That is all I can do. Maybe someone can help me. This is my best result.
  15. 1. Load first image 2. Load second image 3. Go to first image 4. Select All 5. Copy 6. Canvas Size 7. Image > Canvas Size = 200% 8. Add New Layer 9. Paste 10. Move, centrate image and deselect 11. Delete Background 12. Effect > Distort > Oblique and parameters is: x = 0.00 and y = – 0.35 13. Go to second image 14. Select All 15. Copy 16. Go to first image 17. Paste in to New Layer 18. Move, centrate image and deselect 19. Effect > Distort > Oblique and parameters is: x = 0.00 and y = 0.35 20. Move and put to proper position Sometimes is need to contract/expand image to make the book more slim/thick and then is need to move again in proper position. etc. etc. So, is not so easy how you told us. There are more than 20 steps. And is not posible to record this for later use to another cover. Or is it? With Deform Selection tool would be easier. Anyway, I falling in love for this program and this forum. Amazing plugins, amazing peoples! Thanks all!
  16. Thanks welshblue, I have these plugins, I tested it but is not just what I wanted. I use 2 pictures in 2 layers: one is front cover and one is spine of book I need to deform its how I want and link it to look like in first image. This view is different: Thanks anyway for your answer. Great program, GUI is very intuitive, I like much more then GIMP.
  17. I want to thank all those who have worked on creating this wonderful program and everyone who contributed! To make a 3D cover works very difficult in the absence of Deform Selection tool type. Is it possible to have such a tool in the future? I made that using Oblique plugin, but as I said very hard:
