  1. It's nice. The zoom icon in the lower right-hand corner can be toggled on and off when at 100% zoom with no apparent effect; maybe it should just display the icon without dotted lines if zoom is 100% regardless of when the user toggles it. That would be a clearer design because at 100% zoom, you are viewing a 1:1 ratio, and pretty clean in code I'd imagine.
  2. Wholeheartedly agreed. I'd give 4 attempts, maybe with a warning it will result in a temporary lockout, etc. Don't forget that Avada brings up that the email address isn't accepted to log in, which is important if true. For usability. We could tighten it down to one attempt, theoretically, and permanently lock out the account on failure until an admin intervenes. That's the most secure solution, but is it good? I'd say not. I'd even go as far as to agree that 3 is too few. You can read more about it; this source has a variety of answers, one of which includes 3 attempts with a 5 minute timeout on failure, and that's for logging into a user account on an operating system; surely more important than this site: https://ux.stackexchange.com/questions/73565/how-many-atempts-should-you-give-a-user-before-invalidating-his-password. So weigh on it critically from both a security and usability standpoint. Probably someone will chime in that it'll be looked at or not in scope, that's fine. Just want to make sure it's known.
  3. Isn't it twice as good to just bucket fill the background in black, select that and delete? Increase tolerance as necessary, but still it's a single step. Boltbait's suggesting a plugin you'd have to install (granted -- it works well for this!) and AndrewDavid's suggestion requires recreating the red outline. Having other ways of doing it is one thing, but really only if it competes, right?
  4. Fill the background in black. Use the magic wand to select it and delete. I don't know if you want to get rid of the black between letters like the BS and AN, but you would do those tweaks with an eraser.
  5. Copy a slightly larger section, paste on separate layer, fade the bottom edge using a gradient in transparent mode. Or keeping it as is, use clone stamp to carefully copy over the center line and hope it comes out okay.
  6. Free-form selection operates the same in both programs. Paint.net requires pressing M to switch to the move tool if that's what you want to do after making a selection. Otherwise, they affect pixels the same. Paint.net also allows selecting fractions of a pixel if Selection Clipping Mode is set to Antialiased selection quality. I suggest reading about the basics of paint.net. This link goes to Selection Tools, and everything else is on the top menu bar: https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/SelectionTools.html
  7. Vectors are a series of math expressions, but they can be rendered to the screen as raster images, which is what you've seen if you ever saw a vector image. That is, if you make a 1-pixel circle in a vector program and you see it, you already have a raster representation of it. So of course a raster program can create fine circles.
  8. Alternatively, hold Ctrl and press + a few times. A default setting to open images to fill the visible window space would be a solid option to implement, but it would be up to Rick.
  9. Paint.net is hardly the tool for animations, so I'd expect it's just not supported. Googling "loop my gif" gives sites that look like they do it; why not try one of those. https://ezgif.com/loop-count
  10. As long as you have a picture where the tourist isn't crossing in front. I made mine to get back additions I drew on top of another image and finalized; I would do things like edit a .png file and want those edits on my .pdn source file, or Merge down some change on an image, save and close it, then later decide I want to tweak that change. So it makes it easier to isolate.
  11. I don't think you're talking about taking the exact differences between two identical images, but I've had a plugin for that exact purpose for a little over a year. Download for Image Difference (did I ever actually make a post for that, or have I just been hosting it on Google Drive this whole time?)
  12. Oh yeah, that happened too. Didn't mean to snub you null54. I was again running short on time because it's during the work week; I didn't even update the main picture showing the tabs yet, so I missed that change.
  13. Well, it's been two years but yeah, I've got a solution. Any change to drawBrush() is slow to ensure functionality still works, so I'll have to finish testing tomorrow, but results are positive and I only have obscure edge cases left to test or optimize. Version 1.8 released The only change here is mouse speed control, which has a property called brush density and can be changed under the tab called other. It's set to 10 by default, meaning the image is repeated at every 1/10 the width of the actual brush. You can set it to 0 to turn it off and draw like you used to. It's a lot smoother and nicer for the most part, but when you're using large brushes, a really high density, and/or working on a large image, it may create angular lines. So remember you can turn it off if you need to. I tested all the settings. When turned on with minimum draw distance, the effect is that it draws in line segments at a time. With small brush sizes and horz/vert spray, it has an interesting comb effect. Report bugs and other things. If you find it lags too often, maybe I'll have it off by default.
  14. I never tested it at 300 dpi and I hear that the framework I use to display the plugin window and all its controls has a lot of DPI scaling issues because DPI was more of an afterthought in the Winforms library. I'm actually not sure how to test at 300 dpi. Control + Mouse Wheel is the shortcut for zooming in and out, same as PDN itself. You're not suggesting this doesn't work, right? It shouldn't depend on DPI. You can also press tab a couple times so the canvas zoom slider is active, then use arrow keys or Ctrl + arrow keys to adjust it. Unrelated side notes: Can't get rid of Color behaviors; I use it in seriousness for e.g. variation in grass color. Fair bet others find it useful. If I made brushes much larger, they would lag so badly that drawing with them would become unbearable and you'd only be able to manage single-clicking.
  15. Thanks for the praise and feedback, ScrapbookWithPDN. This is the first bullet under Things I'm Changing documented on the design thread. I've got a host of other thoughts there too
