I finally got this cool program running, and I would like to create some background images for some software I am creating.
I want them to be faded, such as you see on calenders where the text is over the picture. I want the picture to still have the details, but be a softer lighter image.
I have tried to do this with other programs with the contrast and lighten and darken but am not achieving the results I want. I don't want to change the specifics in those area, just lighten the whole effect of the picture.
Can this be done in Paint.net, and if so, can someone give me some detailed instructions.
Once I can perfect it, I will create a tutorial explaining it all to others and share it here, as a way of saying thank you to this forum.
