  1. Here is my shot with a hollow font, this is turning out to be nice. Would be great if we could get a really great effect with the rotating text tool...but that's a LOT of manual work
  2. I don't know how you managed, however, to get the antialiased INSIDE gradient of the text, that is impressive The outside edge and the gradient is fine and I can see how it's possible, but how did you manage to get an antialiased text showing a gradient?
  3. I still don't know how you managed the gradiented inside text as it looks antialias...but here is what I came up with which is much better quality than my original:
  4. I am managing to get the gradient effect using blurs, so I'll probably post an update here soon...and thanks for your rotating text suggestion! :-)
  5. Edited by Rick to remove off-topic comments As for your graphic, that is great quality. How did you get the gradients? I couldn't get the gradients to work in my version of Paint.NET from what I tried. I think I will redo the graphic and see what I come up with! You did a great job.
  6. I decided to give it a try for a school paper, and here are the results which are quite surprising seeing as how Paint.NET doesn't have a very smart engine for dealing with layers, anti-aliasing/paths and selections, gradients, etc. Flipping back and forth through the two images, you can see that Paint.NET actually served very well though of course it jsut can't be Adobe Photoshop in its present state Create a blank, 400x400 pixel white canvased image Make a thick black circle Add a pink inner ring to the black circle Add a gradient fading downward using green, yellow, and white to the inside of the pink ring Add text: "JESUS[bREAK]IS NOBODY'S[bREAK]SAVIOR" Add a black outline to the text, thicker on the bottom Add a gradient to "JESUS" text from orange fading downward to green Add a gradient to "IS NOBODY'S" text from green fading downward to yellow Add a gradient to "SAVIOR" fading from light blue down to blue Add curved text to top of circle "LOVING ALL RELIGIONS", pink color, with a white outline and then an outerline being black (thicker on the bottom) Using above preferences, changing the text to "SAVE YOURSELF" and the pink to a cynober, curve these words on the bottom of the circles so that they are facing up on the inside of the circles Paint.NET Adobe Photoshop
  7. Hm thank you but a definable grid would be nice :-) and a "view tiled" thing shouldn't be too hard, not sure if any program has it either, but if this program becomes more pixel-art friendly, that'd be great I think.
  8. Well, for this to be so you'd do well to have a grid. A snap-to-grid function as well. It'd be very nice to have a lot of cool features for tile management. For instance, setting the grid, you can view the grid, make it inivisible, snap to or not snap to grid, etc. It would also be nice if you had a "view tiled" window. In other words, it show the selected region or the entire image, or just the area on the present layer, tiled (repeated next to each other) to allow you to, as you design a tile or tiles be able to easily work with it and edit it to be a good repeated graphic which is good for background art or something else (such as a video game tile). It's always not good to have a tile that you can tell easily where it begins and ends, and instead of manually copy and pasting it next to itself over and over to see how it would look when tiled, a preview window to "View Region Tiled" would help you when putting together such graphics/pixel-pushing. Maybe make it able to click and move tiles around, as well, without having to select, copy, paste, move, delete, etc. areas defined by a grid (a height and width, usually 16x16).
  9. Why not allow the middle mouse button to replace the picked color(s) with the color it is clicked on?
