    What's next for brush factory?

    There also appears to be the DataContractJsonSerializer also built into the .NET Framework.

    Performance Update Hey everyone, I've done some updates to make the loading and performance of the search app faster again! All the changes in more detail can be found here on the pull request. In short, the generated site is now smaller and load times are significantly faster (~.5s to 1s) --- now using the compress layout. Main javascript file is now in a module-pattern and the main css is now in scss format for easier maintenance.

    Wacky problem with layers

    You may be confused as to the active layer and what the checkbox means. The checkboxes will turn rendered layers on and off and does not affect whether you can draw in them or not. The currently selected layer (highlighted in blue) is the layer that you are currently interacting with, draw on, etc. regardless of whether the check is selected or not.

    New Paint.NET logo

    Well, if we were to go back in time... here's some logo history via wayback-machine: (circa 2006) (also circa 2006) (circa 2013 to present) In my opinion, it has been modernized to an extent. The current logo looks nice and shouldn't need to change aside from a potentially higher resolution.
  6. Hey Scott, it looks like all of the links and one image (by AndrewDavid) in that thread are broken / no longer exist.
  7. It looks like your image is not corrupted but the problem was that you overwrote the pdn file as a png -- preserving the pdn file extension. You will have to change the file extension from pdn to png and you may open the image again! However, since you overwrote it with the png version, if you had layers in your pdn file you will have lost those. You can rename the file with command prompt by cd'ing to the path the file is located and then renaming it. C:\Users\MyUsername>cd Desktop\ C:\Users\MyUsername\Desktop>rename MyImage.pdn MyImage.png

    Possible Hijacker when Downloading Plugins

    There are no infected links going on here. Let's break down the "" link you are seeing. Note two things: Invisioncommunity makes the software this forum uses and their cloud service uses amazon aws.; cloud storage service ips-cic-filestore/ "IPS" stands for Invision Power Services and "CiC" appears to stand for community in the cloud. This is the cloud or "filestore" for an Invision-based forum. r125076/ I assume this is the forum id for Paint.NET of some kind to separate files from other forums in the filestore. monthly_08_2015/<file name here> The filestore breaks up uploaded files by months. It is not a confirmed malware... sure in the general sense someone could use "s3.amazonaws" storage to host malware of their own. However, the service and domain itself are not malware. The file you were downloading is not malware. Amazon AWS is a very popular service used by many sites for storage and other services which is why you would be seeing it everywhere as you navigate the web. You did a scan and nothing turned up because you are fine!

    Plugin Index

    Update! First time I'm posting an update here haha. I bring a performance enhancement to the Plugin Index by pre-loading the data into the page with Jekyll so that there is no need to fetch the data after page load. You should see the plugins on the page now without any delay!
  10. How old is the laptop? Could the battery be going bad? By saying you checked for something in the background, did you look at the task manager processes?

    Print error message, but no details!

    Are you able to print something from another program: Microsoft Word; Notepad; Web browser? If you can't than it is either your machine or the printer but if you can than it may be something wrong with your Paint.NET installation.

    Plugin Index

    I am getting the same error but when pasting the index JSON into JSONLint all seems to be good. I found a similar problem parsing JSON and C# with the same "Invalid JSON primitive: ." due to an errant comma but no errant comma is present; JSONLint would show this as an error when validating. I am not sure what is wrong.

    Selection tool sometimes won't work

    This is in the Context Menu but it would be under "Open with" and Paint.NET comes up for me to edit a photo.

    How to bring out faint impressions

    Hey, I'm a coin guy too! At least the bottom half of the blunder S seems to be noticeable from the image. You can sort of bring it out some more, or at least make it easier to make out, using the Majority Color Effect plugin, results below. I used a Radius of Analyze of 4 and default tolerance.

    DOWNLOAD buttons for attached files

    Blue Gray Orange? Edit: It looks to be in working order now! I can also edit the color with inspect element but it only accepts the default provided gray and blue. Custom colors turn white.

    Plugin Index

    I'm not sure how much this will help but what version iPhone and Safari were you using? What doesn't work when you try: page doesn't load at all, page loads but plugins don't show, page loads but everything looks wrong, everything loads but search controls don't work, etc.? Screenshot if possible or relevant?
  18. SodiumEnglish runs too slow

    @IRON67 looks like a necropost from the post above you. Thread is over 7 years old so Vista and low ram would be a little more common back then haha.
  19. I thought you could do this although it's not very apparent. If you hold the mouse (using the Move Selected Pixels tool) anywhere right outside the selection edge an angle symbol should appear You can then do custom angles of your selection until it looks just right.

    Plugin Index

    @Ego Eram Reputo Hey Ego, while I have used Paint.NET for a long time I am new to using the forums. Your index is a really useful tool and thanks for keeping it updated! I wanted to share with you a tool I made, using your index data, allowing people to filter and search the plugins in your index. I of course credited you and linked back here for people interested. I have it publicly available on GitHub here and using GitHub Pages "PDN Plugin Index" so that it is available all the time and can be updated with each revision. Do you think this is a good idea? Is it okay to use your index data in this way? If you think it is okay, would you consider sharing it/linking it in the first post?
