  1. Finally, a t-shirt for sports fans like me... Car stuff...
  2. More from the "life as a programmer" file...
  3. Well, now that you're here, you might as well download Paint.NET and see if you like it. It is free. Click the link in the upper right corner of this page to get started: https://www.dotpdn.com/downloads/pdn.html
  4. ...or, you could simply switch to a plugin in my pack called Effects > Object > Paste Alpha...
  5. How to use the line tool to draw a straight line: To constrain to a certain regular angle, use the shift key while drawing your line.
  6. Putting your crash log into this scanner: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/112453-scan-your-crashlog-for-common-solutions/ Suggests to "Disable MacType". See if that helps.
  7. Use the normal outline method, then use the magic wand to select the outline color. Finally use the gradient tool to draw a gradient bounded by the selection.
  8. @bonnieboyce, please review the forum rules, specifically #23... https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/2932-read-first-the-rules-yes-you-read-this-2013-12-21/#23
  9. Try this: NVIDIA control panel. → 3D Settings Management. → Selected graphics processor. Change to: "Auto-select".
  10. I'm just going to leave this screen shot here... Players of the http://2048game.com will know the feeling... (BTW, this screenshot is from a Scratch version of the game.) EDIT: My final score was 79740. A new record for me.
  11. It shouldn't do that. I'll check it out. Thanks for the report. EDIT: I checked the functionality of the installer and was not able to reproduce the bug you reported. Everything seems to be working as designed on my system. While the installer is processing the list, it does iterate through all files, it is not actually installing the unchecked items.
  12. Paint.NET's printing capability is minimal, at best. If you want more control of your printer output, try the plugin.
  13. Please try this plugin: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/28520-print-it-tools-effect/
  14. Hello to you in Tokyo Japan! What is your experience using Paint.NET?
  15. I can't quite see your screen from here. So, you'll have to describe what you're seeing. Are you getting an error message when you try to run Paint.NET?
  16. The only way to get an accurate merge utilizing different blend modes is to Edit > Flatten your image. The resulting image will be exactly as you see it on your screen. The reason a Merge Layer Down may not end up with the same result is because of situations like this: Top layer (blend mode normal) Middle layer (blend mode darken) Bottom Layer (blend mode lighten) Base Layer (blend mode normal) If you select the Middle layer and Merge the layer down into the Bottom layer, what would the resulting Bottom layer's blend mode be? There is no good answer for that question which is why after the merge the image can look different from how it looked before the merge. The only way to be sure the image result is EXACTLY the same as before the merge is to completely flatten the image. Then why have a Merge Layer Down function? Well, most of the time the merge works just fine. If the destination layer has a blend mode of "normal", the result will be what you expect. So, the function is very useful for combining layers. The limitation, of course, is when the destination layer has a different blend mode. Just keep that in mind in the future.
  17. When saving as JPG, what options are you using?
