  1. It does not have the midtones option. I still did better results with Levels and Curves+ I do have Combined Adjustments but that's for another situation.
  2. Tried that. Wasn't good as I was hoping for the particular photo I was working on. And its an old plugin.
  3. I just discovered this plugin today and its awesome. Thanks @null54
  4. Hello, I was wondering if there is a single plugin with a slider for adjusting highlights, midtones and shadows? I think I've seen something like that before. I am not always happy with Curves+ and Levels in the Adjustments menu.
  5. Has anybody noticed that the check Finish button looks gray even when its supposed to be bright green? I am yet to commit the shape for instance but the Finish button is gray and changes very little when I hover it. This occurs in the latest version of Paint.NET (v4.1.6) and I think its possibly been there since earlier versions. Also, now that we have such an improvement on the Layer command, I think its great if we have "Select All" and "Deselect All" function for layers as well. Thanks.
  6. I have been eagerly waiting for an update for some new features. Thanks Rick.
  7. @TrevorOutlaw That was interesting. I would try those steps and see where its most suitable. I'm however used to the Curves+ and Levels adjustments. @dipstick and @HyReZ, the camera that I use don't support RAW format. I've seen a video where Darktable was mentioned. And Rawtherepee, I have that lying around. Tested it again yesterday but I don't understand how to use it just yet. @MJW I do have Laplacian Pyramid Filter. Its one of my favorites. In fact I even used it on a PDN video I did.
  8. Hello, happy new year to you on this forum. I took these pictures and I was wondering how I could perhaps make these pictures look more sharp and crisp like if they had been edited using Lightroom. Is it possible to make a wallpaper-quality image from them if we are to use only Paint.NET and its plugins? I don't want a resource intensive program so I had to rely to Paint.NET with its simplicity and ease of use. I was hoping I could produce some professional edits. I'm still learning myself. I had resized them to make viewing easier on this thread. How would you approach editing these images? Thank you.
  9. Photography is a hobby for me. I use a bridge camera and don't have great equipment. I am challenged to try and make the best of what I do have and got to edit them to make them better.
  10. Interesting. You should make a tutorial of that shallow water effect.
  11. Its a problem that causes PDN to display that dialog box that also shows the error log but it does not really grind PDN to a stop. Here's the error log again. I used the forum function to insert a line of code. I think it does not behave as it once used to.
  12. So I have a single layer picture opened on PDN v.4.0.21. I did some changes to it and CTRL+A then attempted to copy it to the clipboard FROM PDN to another program being MS Publisher, then I get an error on PDN saying it failed to load the image into the clipboard. I get this error log.

  13. Thank you Pixey. Only now have I found a new situation that I could link to a bigger concept using this tactic of symbolism. That's why these stories are so rare. The last one being July of 2016 maybe. I remember you mentioning it being a "Tableau". If I spend more time being out there and looking at these simple things that could happen any day, maybe I'd quickly gain an inspiration for a third chapter.
  14. My gallery is two days short of not being updated for a whole year. I'm too lazy to re-host my previous uploads into another file hosting service. We all know Photobucket really blew it. But here's a new upload. As always, this is 100% PDN. Its the second one of its kind among my works. The first one was about the caramel macchiato thing. I want this to go like a series. My focus is not on the design but on the story. I'm too lazy to come up with a time intensive work. I just want to share this true story of mine that happened just yesterday.
