  1. Greetings,


    Is there a way to take individual commands that can normally only be accessed through a drop-down menu, and add them to the top bar? For example, I'd like to place the unselect button on the top bar so I don't have to go down the Edit menu every time I need to use it. In this specific case, the escape button used to serve as a way to unselect, but that's no longer working that way in most cases. Thanks!

    I did not really know how to say this or WHERE to put this. So I put a screenshot in the attachements.

    In words. If I am currently working with the primary color. It happens at times that I want to simply choose a secondary color from the my image and continue drawing with my primary color. THEN, I simply want to choose a color from below to change my primary color but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! It switches myt secondary color I just picked. That is totally annoying.



    1. Click on primary color box

    2. Choose the color picker

    3. Choose a color in your image using the RIGHT mouse button

    4. LEFT click any color below

    BOOM - Secondary color changed to your picked color instead of the Primary one.


    I agree. This is very confusing. 

  3. Hi all. I noticed this extension isn't working anymore. I can use the extension, however any alteration to an image gets cancelled when I click OK. It never did this before... Is there an update? I could not find one. Thanks.


    I have Boltbait's Color Balance + but I cannot reproduce with this one what the earlier extension does.

    Render your label to it's own layer, the apply this amazing plugin: Liquify

    Thanks! It works well as a way to bend something, although the angle of the letters doesn't change, which looks a bit odd. I reduced Pressure to a minimum and maxed out Density, using a very large brush setting to match the width of the label. At 700 for the brush, Paint.net crashes. Oh well. I won't need such a large brush anyway, this was just for testing purposes. I tried circle text, but the kerning is atrocious and the resulting label looks bad.

  5. Greetings,


    I'm interested in drawing a 3D cone, but can't find the right plugin for this. Is there one? Also, if I drew a cone seen directly from above, such as a tower's roof (basically a circle with a central point) how would I get the sort of shading that would convey the idea this is a conical shape? The conical gradient built into the basic Paint Net version doesn't quite work in this respect. I tried bevelling, but this produces more of a spherical cupola effect. Thanks!



  6. I started over with a new page, 8.5 x 5.5 and reran the grid app.  I just needed a grid, not a checkerboard.  The res is 300 dpi.  This time, the grid is only just a hair off.  Not sure why I had such a discrepancy the first time around.  Yours looks spot on. 




  7. Greetings,


    I'm looking for a plugin that will allow me to make a grid with paintnet.  I have version 4.0.5 with Windows 8.1.  I'd found a Gridmaker plugin earlier, but I was not able to install it. 


    Is there one that's more recent, available, and actually working?






    EDIT:  I discovered the plugin was installed.  The application was buried under the "effects" menu and then under "render," which explains why I couldn't find it the first time around.  The new issue I ran into is that there is no way to get the grid to match a specific size.  The grid step runs on a scale of 1 to 1000, but even with that, on a canvas that's 8.5" wide, the grid cannot be made to run exactly 1/4" per square.  On the right edge of the page, that grid is about 1/12th of an inch off.  Suggestions?

  8. Greetings,


    I have not been able to install this plugin.  I placed the downloaded dll file with the others for paintnet (also in the effects folder), but after relaunching paintnet, I did not see anything different or that had anything to do with making a grid.  What's missing?  Thanks




    I have Paintnet 4.0.5 with Windows 8.1

  9. Greetings


    The Paint.Net tutorial shows tools to move layers forward or backward.  I couldn't find these tools in the layers' drop down menu.  Am I missing something? Thanks.


    Edit ------------------------------


    Never mind -- I did find out where these commands were hidden... I'm working on a map, and I'm trying to get latitude and longitude lines to overprint the actual map.  As I moved the layer with the lat/longitude lines "forward" they don't appear to overprint the map in the background.  Is there some other secret here to get the desired effect?
