  1. We won't be adding this. It adds too much clutter and complexity to the user interface. If we added some 'common' sizes, we would get requests to change what the values are to whatever the person thought was 'common,' which means we'd probably have to have some UI to specify what the 'common' values are ... Plus, it's not hard to type 1024 [tab] 768 or 800 [tab] 600.
  2. Check out our FAQ -- printing, and acquiring from a scanner or camera is only available in Windows XP SP1 or newer, or Windows Server 2003 or newer. http://www.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net/faq.htm
  3. Please read the sticky in this forum before requesting features we've already implemented for the next version ...
  4. http://blogs.msdn.com/rickbrew I think it has an RSS feed ... most blogs do. Version 2.2 will also have an updates notification feature. Check out the v2.2 preview, http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=27
  5. When you go through the printing wizard, it does have some preview facilities.
  6. Sorry, Paint.NET isn't an animation program ...
  7. "2nd half of 2005" No firm date is set other than that.
  8. No that's not what I meant at all. XP SP1 or later. Sorry for the confusion.
  9. ncmike1, Not all cameras or scanners will work. They must have support for WIA (Windows Image Acquisition), and you must be running Windows XP SP1 or Windows Server 2003.
  10. I've filed a suggestion bug on this. We'll see what Tom thinks -- he wrote Levels.
  11. We hear ya. Version 2.2 is going to have a completely rewritten selection system that will do everything you want, and probably more. We haven't had it yet because it's a difficult problem to both design well and implement in a performant manner. But we're getting there.
  12. Yes. v2.2 is going to be released in both English and German.
  13. Makes sense ... I've filed a bug. You'll see it in v2.2.
  14. Most likely you are opening a low-color or monochrome TIFF. Paint.NET only works with 32-bit color, so when you open a low-color or monochrome TIFF the pixels are scaled up to 32-bit. Then when you save, the file size reflects this.
  15. Luckily we keep a private archive of all released builds. I've copied it to our web server so you can download it: http://www.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net/files ... t_2_1a.zip
  16. The events in Tool.cs do not call event delegates for external clients to handle -- they are meant to be overriden by derived classes. What will happen is that SurfaceBox or DocumentView will receive input, possibly via OnMouseDown or the stylus input plugin, and will then raise a corresponding event that is handled by DocumentWorkspace. This input event is then pushed to the current Tool via the Perform* methods. If you want to know how it works, you really should just use the excellent debugging facilities provided by Visual Studio and step through the code. Set a breakpoint where you want
  17. You might find it useful to select the area you want to smear/blur, and then use the Blur or Motion Blur effect to smear that area.
  18. Yes, Windows XP SP1 is required for this functionality ... we wouldn't make a dialog box that lies to you, after all.
  19. The eraser is meant to set an area to be transparent (alpha channel equal to zero) -- if you are working with multiple layers the way we do this makes much more sense than the way it works with just 1 layer. They can always just use the paintbrush to draw with white. The way things are set up when you start the application, you can basically use the left mouse button to draw with black, and then the right mouse button will 'erase' with white because that is the default secondary ("background") color.
  20. That's not quite how it works. If only it were that simple PaintDotNet.Data.dll is where all the document related code resides. That doesn't mean it can be plugged in to other programs. However, those other programs could write their own adapter code that used PaintDotNet.Data.dll to load .PDN files.
  21. Try http://moab.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net/ while I bug the guys at WSU to get the main, normal URL back up ...
