  1. The way I read the OP's question is that he wants to get a black-and-white printout in order to carve an actual piece of wood.
  2. FOUND IT!!! The video is here: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/31895-ishis-not-so-fancy-pdn-gallery-updated-july-8-2016/&page=4#comment-518643
  3. Thanks everyone. Still haven't found the video (and it's going to haunt me like Capt. Ahab) but so far Dipstick's method seems the most doable with my limited abilities. I shall try it out.
  4. Afraid not. This is going to sound uncouth but I'm terrible with names, especially usernames, but the member with the Beatles-like purple avatar with the huge 70s mustache? I forget his name but he might have posted that video. It featured a girl standing on a wooden pier at night – that's when he made the nifty shadow. I remember a lot of (possibly freehand) stretching and distorting.
  5. Instead of explaining what I want to do, here's an example from the Harry Brown movie poster. I want to be able to do this sort of shadow and then fill it with something cool. I understand for this particular example, it's been painted (or photographed in a way to create this shadow) but I've seen a video here on the forum how to do it and I can't find it anymore. The video was about another effect but the user (how I wish I knew his/her name!) finished things off with a shadow. They stretched it this way and that way, rotating it back so it looks like it was on the ground. It was glorious. I've tried the shadow plug-in but I lose too much because of the main subject. I tried TR's Distort This but it doesn't let me stretch it to make it bigger. I tried rotate/zoom and not getting what I need. If I could only find the video again! I get a feeling it was posted by MJW or Cc4FuzzyHuggles though. Maybe?
  6. There are a gazillion ways to make abstract backgrounds. I personally like to put on some music for a movie and then just do random effects for half an hour. It's mostly because I don't know what I'm doing and also a way to learn how the plug-ins work. Start with random shapes or lines. Then head to the Distort section of the Effects and try stuff
  7. Not sure how I feel so I won't complain until I've gotten used to this, but this was my first reaction when logging in
  8. When doing graphic design – precision work – you can't reduce the size otherwise you could make mistakes or not get the desired result. And moving the windows constantly? Major hassle. As someone who does a lot of design in PDN, overscroll is amazing.
  9. It's my understanding that plug-ins in Paint.net can only use TrueType fonts and not Open Type fonts. Your new Italianno font is probably otf...
  10. Oh man, I didn't know I needed overscroll until I tried it just now! Thanks for the great work
  11. I have Windows 10 and Smudge, in Tools, works for me.
