1. ## Fire Effect (finally)

I've finally got around to implementing a single-effect implemenation of the fire effect. Due to the nature of this effect, it does best when you give it a blurry black and white image to start with: And it remakes the same shape as a firey outline: Try it out! http://ddrcoder.com/Fire/TJacksonEffects.zip
2. ## Curves+

Nice work pyrochild, great minds think alike! I coded up almost exactly this about a week ago, and we're thinking about including it in a future version.
3. ## Layer Rotation Problem

I see the issue you're talking about now... you're right, the red dots should form an ellipse. I'll investigate this.
4. ## Layer Rotation Problem

korteck, I believe you are trying to create a spinning effect with the text by repeatedly rotating it. This isn't quite the right approach for doing this effect in Paint.NET. When Rotate/Zoom is performed on an image, it make the image look like it's been tilted/sized/rotated. The problem is that if you repeat Rotate/Zoom, it's not the case that you're rotating the flat text "KortecK". You're rotating a picture of the word, which is already rotated. If you want show text rotating as it does in your sig, you need to do this: [*:9bf73]Draw the text [*:9bf73]Tilt the text by 10 degrees [*:9bf73]Save the image, then UNDO the Rotate/Zoom. [*:9bf73]Tilt the text by 20 degrees [*:9bf73]Save the image, then UNDO the Rotate/Zoom. [*:9bf73]Tilt the text by 30 degrees [*:9bf73]... Repeatedly rotating the text with Rotate/Zoom is like taking a picture of a picture from an angle, printing that picture, then taking a picture of THAT picture from an angle. A bit of an odd concept, but that's what you're doing with Rotate/Zoom by repeating it. Try the above steps to accomplish what you're going for.
5. ## Firey Text

It sounds like your foreground and background colors are the same. Make them black/white.
6. ## Firey Text

I've changed the instructions a bit, I've found these steps lead to hotter results. Let me know what you think. The main difference is that I adjust the text layer's and clouds layer's levels before flattening, resulting in a better 'negation' image. Try it out.

10. ## How to start a fire with Paint.NET

I also made this using similar techniques:

12. ## Icon, Cursor, and Animated Cursor Format v3.7 (May 2010)

I really need to be able to make icons in arbitrary sizes. I really do need to be able to save icons that are 190x35 or any other arbitrary dimension.

Thanks for the bugs, I'll look into those. I'm not sure about the wrapping thing, but I'll look at it. Don't count on a wrapping indicator, though. Ideally, we would write a full-fledged code editor, but that would be a little overkill for these purposes. -tjackson
14. ## Rotate/Zoom Units

The X/Y pan boxes refer to where the center of the image ends up as a fraction of the width/height of the image. Leaving it at 0, 0 causes the center of the image to stay in the center (no matter how the image is tilted). Setting it to 1, 1 causes the center of the image to be placed in the bottom-right corner of the output image, setting it to -1, -1 causes the output image to be centered on the top-left corner.

This topic will do fine, what's the bug?
