  1. I think I had version 3 on my old laptop which was XP. I'm not entirely sure if version 4 runs on XP, though.
  2. There's a lot of variation in your image styles, so I'll help with the first one Now, let me think...if you're using Windows, navigate to your Paint.Net folder in Program Files. Go into the effects folder and drag all of the .dll's into that folder from that plugin pack. If you want, you could just drag the threshold one across. I was trying out the threshold plugin the other day to see what I could do, and I found a good way to make a heavily shaded image, similar to some things you've wanted. First, get a base image or a photo or a good quality drawing with colour and shading, or something similar. Duplicate the layer 2-4 times, higher if you want more detailed shading, lower if you want more cartoony shading. Then on the top layer, apply threshold to what looks good for a really dark shading. It'll be black and white, but you should be able to colour it in later if you want. Set the opacity of that layer to about halfway. On the next layer down, apply threshold again, but set the sliders to a different setting. If you have more layers underneath, set the opacity to halfway again. Repeat for the amount of layers you have, but make sure your last layer before the background is not translucent. Make a new layer underneath all of this and paste in your background there. You can colour in the image with any method you like, this was just to achieve the shading (hopefully... )
  3. I'm sure I've heard of something that does this, but I cannot for the life of me know what it's called. It's most likely a plugin.
  4. Welcome to the forums Rhaonoa Well, you could try getting the awesomely handy Threshold plugin - http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/18811-ed-harvey-effects-v-35-2012-02-13/ (But you'd have to download the whole plugin pack, since I don't think they come seperately) Then you could make a new layer with a different blend mode and colour in the image. Just ideas, you'd have to see what other people reply. I don't do that sort of style very often so I'm not 100% sure what I'm talking about
  5. I'll quote myself on a crash course I did for someone else about layers Also, the checkbox shows and hides the entire layer, so if you want to not see a particular layer, just untick the checkbox and it'll disappear. Click it again to make it show up.
  6. Hi MisterBeginner, welcome to the forums. Is this a question to do with a picture you've made on Paint.Net? If so, please post screenshots and provide a better explanation of what you want help with. If this is a medical issue then I would suggest either asking on a health forum or seeing an optometrist.
  7. Well, I'm still using version 3, as I don't want to have to sort out which effects are compatible, but if there is such a slider in version 4, then I will use it. I assume most of the plugin packs are compatible, but I do have some standalone ones. I'll have to check through them. Thanks
  8. I felt like making a new avatar, so I did. :P

  9. I would love to have some custom brushes to use with clone stamp tool, because the default one is too rigid and I have to copy the picture to CS6 to smooth out seams. I'd love to not have to deal with CS3 (loading times) and just use PDN. Is there a tutorial I can use to install/make custom brushes? Thanks guys!
  10. Ah, now I have the solution for you. You can lighten the lines to a grey tone, then you can apply Sepia to get colour in it. Then you can change the Hue/Sat as you like. There are better ways involving plugins, but this is an easy way to do so with no plugins
  11. Not as far as I know, but then again I'm not the publisher! Let's see if any plugin developers reply
  12. I always say that if you have enough plugins, PDN can be as good as photoshop anyway!
  13. Hi regevdl! Welcome to the forums! As I understand, you want to print a pixelated photo? To do this in PDN, you can go to Effects > Distort > Pixelate. There you should be able to change the level of pixelation to your desire. Then just print out the image at the size you want. Let me know if I've misunderstood!
  14. Been playing lots of Planetary Annihilation! 11/10
  15. For the left one, I used Dents, Cross Processing and used TR's SelfEez to get my face as a source. For the right one, I used a photo of a LED flashlight, used dents and difference blend mode. Simple but effective.
  16. You could also try rendering some noise with high saturation, and then apply the crystallize effect!
  17. Try setting one of your colours to a transparent one, that way if you use the gradient there will be your main colour which fades out to nothing. Is that what you're looking for? Alternatively, you could put the gradient on a new layer and change the transparency of the whole layer.
  18. Ooh! That looks interesting! By the way, what software do you use to record your PDN?
  19. I made a couple of images which are now in my gallery, here they are: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/236475228/oil.png https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/236475228/what%20%281%29.png
  20. I also need some ideas as to something I can do for an Art Exhibition that's coming up. What would you buy and hang on a wall?
  21. I've made some abstract images! Let me know what you think!
