  1. I can't do that. For one, I'm modifying an existing asset created by someone else, and two the game is no longer running anymore. Good to know. The images basically have a gradient background being the objects inside them, and since it's predictable enough maybe I can remove it somehow. That should help me anti-alias some of the edges. I'm already applying the gradient background to the area around the images when displaying them on the web and the difference is almost unnoticeable.
  2. Fyi for anyone who needs to use the new feather plugin but does not have administrator access to their computer, the filename is "ObjectTools.dll". Anyways, it didn't work in my situation. Neither the old/new Feather tools nor AA's Assistant was able to help me add anti-aliasing to a game screenshot... I realize that these were designed to take a jagged selection of an object with one background that had been pasted onto another background and remove the edges of the old background, but I just wanted to highlight a use case these didn't address (in case you do want to change the plugin to handle it). I am working with an asset someone else originally created, so I can't just re-take any screenshots with anti-aliasing on. Here are examples of the screenshots (the feather tool has no effect):
  3. No questions here, this is an informative post for people who run into the same problem as I did. There are prior questions addressing this, but they're either old or more specific to a user's question. Anyways, I was trying to install paint.net onto my work PC however the installer requires elevating administrative privileges, which my workplace does not let me have for security purposes. There are two suggestions to solve this... The first is to install paint.net on another PC (where you do have admin privileges) and copying the installation directory to the target PC (where you don't have admin privileges). There's also an easy way to let you preserve your settings if you want to when copying the directory over. This workaround has some prerequisites, which are that the right version of .NET needs to already be installed on the target PC (though this may change one day), you have to work with a filesystem, and you have to transfer files between two PCs. More information can be found here: https://blog.getpaint.net/2017/07/21/portable-mode-in-paint-net-4-0-17/ The other suggestion is paying $7 on the Microsoft Store for lifetime access to the application there. This has some benefits, including automatic updates handled by Windows 10, it means that you support the developer (Rick), and installation is dead simple. My issue is that even my workstation prevented access to the Microsoft Store with the following "page could not be loaded" error: however this was easily fixed by disabling my work's VPN temporarily. In the end, I went with the second option because I previously paid for the Store app when it first came out. While the Store page says it's only supported on Windows 10 Home and Pro, I am using Windows 10 Enterprise and it worked perfectly fine.
