  1. Thanks for the update. Just curious, is this the year end update or do we wait for another one just around New Year?
  2. 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.
  3. Tried that. Wasn't good as I was hoping for the particular photo I was working on. And its an old plugin.
  4. I just discovered this plugin today and its awesome. Thanks @null54
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. I have been eagerly waiting for an update for some new features. Thanks Rick.
  8. @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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Interesting. You should make a tutorial of that shallow water effect.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.

  14. 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.
