  1. I tried attempting this tutorial and when it comes time for the fish eye effect  with your settings, I get 2 dark lines on the image.


    Hi mackenzieh !


    Thanks for trying this tutorial !


    Before saying anything, let me ask you a question...


    Are you using the same picture I used as the model for this tutorial ? If not can you show me a screenshot, how does those dark lines looked like, or send me your pdn file to my inbox ?


    I need your answer for a clarification.


    Thanks !

  2. Hi !


    I'm on my way to make a PDN tutorial that focused on old photo restoration. However, I'm lacking the picture needed as 'the model' for that tutorial. Using pictures from internet is not a good choice. So, is there anyone voluntarily submitting the picture with the criteria I need for that ?

    If anyone interested, just posting the picture right here.


    Thank you !


  3. Hi !

    If you like the non-destructive way ( changes applied not directly on the pixels of the master copy ), here are what I can offer you ( step by step ):


    Method One :


    1. Duplicate the image

    2. Adjusts the brightness by adjusting the blending mode of the duplicated image. Change the blending mode from 'Normal' to 'Screen'. You can see that your picture appears brighter than the original one. Adjust the opacity of the layer to tweak it. Rename the layer to 'Brightness' so you can remember what are you doing, in case you want to keep the edited picture in .pdn format for long-term usage.

    3. If you're unhappy with the contrast, duplicate the original image again. This time, change the blending mode to 'Overlay'. Adjust the opacity of the layer to tweak it. Rename the layer to 'Contrast'. 



    Method Two :


    Using contrast mask and here are the link to the tutorial :

    All the best !

    Hi !


    Intro :


    This tutorial was adapted from a Photoshop tutorial written by Steve Patterson and it shows how we can add up lens flare/camera trouser effect to a picture in Paint.NET without any post-saving irreversible changes. We will manipulate 'blending mode' of the layer to do so, so we will turn this image from this :




    to this :




    Plugin needed :


    i) Lens Flare, OR

    ii) Camera Trouser Flare, OR

    iii) PS FilterPdN + Axion ( Photoshop plugin )


    Steps :


    1. Opens image.

    2. Add up a new layer. Fill it with black. Set this layer to 'Screen' mode.

    3. Opens the plugin. In this case I'll use Camera Trouser Flare with this setting :




    It'll looked like this after adding up the effect :




    Somehow the setting varies from picture to picture, and that setting is appropriate for the picture used in this tutorial.


    And we're done !


    Note : This is how the same layer looked like ( in normal mode ) :





    Tweak the intensity of the light by adjusting the transparency of the layer, if you feel that the light is too bright.



    All the best !
