  1. Actually, haha, I dont think there is way that can do this, but thanks anyway
  2. When something with transparency covers part of an image (Mandatory process)(Such as the transparent layer in Twitter that distort the background), if I want to retain the original image look, I have to change part of the image into a more virbrant colours as before it was covered with a mandatory transparent layer. Here is a demonstration In this case, I want to change the upper part so it looks the same colour as before, so I will need to change the upper part with more contrast or brightness, etc, so after the layer is added, it looks the same as if without the layer on. A way to do this as I mentioned, is to use curve tool or change contrast and brightness, but there is no way that I can get it to 100 accurate.
  3. Thanks, I'm not slightly carrying any interest of the iPad, since it literally has no pressure sensitivity, not really designed for drawing anyway, and no support for full features of softwares such as Photoshop
  4. I have a decent rig, I suppose I can wire it up with a touchpad tablet and work via that, but that's not the point, touchscreen tablet really brings out what I believe to be innovative art making
  5. Thanks, I will not abandon pencil and paper of course, I just happen to find drawing on tablet a very interesting and full of opperunities alternative
  6. Hello, Pixey, I am posting here as I stated that I assume I can find artists here who have or are using a screen tablet on softwares not just paintnet, I was never actually interested in the Intuos or Bamboo, cause I don't think, touchpad tablets have a very impact, I've used it, and it doesn't go well for me.
  7. I assume most people here, we're all artists, and one thing about been an artist, specially one that dreams to enter professional art industry, one will desire for a tablet. And when I say tablet, I meant touchscreen tablet. Not touchpad tablet. So far, I only see two tablets that strike my interests 1. Microsoft Surface Pro 2 (Windows 8) Expensive 2. Wacom Cintiq Companion (Windows 8) Expensive as hell The reason for needing a tablet, is of course, the softwares it offers, as we all know, we can do more things on a tablet than peice of paper or operating with mouse, such as hand made image editing, image painting, 3D modeling, etc. Right now, I am thinking about buying Surface Pro 2, as it is much more cheaper than Companion. The thing that concerns me, perhaps the only concern, and biggest concern, okay, I'll get on to the point, is the fact that wether not Surface Pro 2 has the same capabiity as the Cintiq Companion, Cintiq is simply too expensive, perhaps there's a reason for the luxurious hardware and even more luxurious price, maybe Wacom wants their costumers to be professional artists in majority, wether not Surface Pro 2 can do all the things Companion can or not, that is what concerns me. One thing I noticed among comments and opinions is the fact that Surface Pro 2 has very little pressure sensitivity, as opposed to the 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity Cintiq can offer, maybe this information is not entirely right, as I learned that pressure sensitvity comes from the pen, not the screen, but and again, I maybe wrong again, please correct me if you know what's going on with those pressure sensitivity facts. One video I viewed on Youtube about a reviewer installing WinTab drivers on his Surface Pro 2 and allowing to become pressure sensitive, I had very little idea of what WinTab drivers is, but I learned it's a driver that runs the pressure sensitivity capability of Pro 2 so the function can be utilized or fully utilized, but then again, wether not it offers 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity, I do not know. Some little facts about myself, I enjoy creating art as I speak and I'm looking to get into art professionally, my question comes down to wether not Surface Pro 2 is all I need or I should save up and go for the ridiculously priced Cintiq Compaion. Or, if someone know something even better, feel free to share! Many thanks!
  8. Step one: Crop out the boy Methods: -Erase background with Eraser, requires precision but efficient -Magic wand on background, adjust the Tolerance for best selection, erase the rest Step two: Install Silhouette Plus Plugin Step three: Apply Silhouette Go to Effects>Object>Silhouette Plus Choose colour, click ok Step four: Smooth outline Get Plug in: AA's Assistants
  9. Paint Tool SAI has outline tools which is something I really like, and also, blur tool is much more favourable than smudge on PaintNET
  10. I just printed out some PNG images on A3 paper, and then someone told me TIFF is a better format to print images, so if I go in PaintNET and convert the image to TIFF, and print it out, will it look slightly with higher quality than the PNG print out? And yes, the image is 300dpi, no worries about all that pixels per inch stuff, it does not matter, it's all about format.
  11. That's a very interesting plugin, cheers, I will take a look at it, really cool!
  12. I would've thought of that, but I guess that's gonna take awhile to complete, not really worth it as the result can be very inaccurate.
