  1. You're finished product will end up much more anti-aliased.
  2. Well here's the link. You will find the effects under Effects>Distort http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=2652
  3. Left: This is where the tolerance bar is for paint.net 2.72... Right: And here it is again for the pre-release 3.0 version I just think this is a simple explanation for the magic wand tool. Most people know this information already so it wouldn't make such a good tutorial. Thanks anyways
  4. It seems like the render that you are trying to cut out is on a background of one color like the sonic below.(It may be harder if the background of your render has lots of different colors.) Correct me if I am wrong, but if the sonic posted above was your render, you only want the sonic. There are actually TONS of different ways that you can cut out that render, but the easiest way to do it is by using the magic wand tool. First off, what the magic wand tool does is select colors with similar RGB levels. This can be varied by the amount of tolerance. The higher percentage of tolerance, the more colors are selected, and vice versa. Using the magic wand tool, select the portion of the image that you don't want. In my case, it would be the white background of sonic. Some colors in your render may have similar colors in the background so when you select the background, some parts of the render may also be selected. To fix this, just adjust the tolerance level of your magic wand. With the background completely selected, press the delete button on your keyboard. Now press Ctrl+A and copy your render into another canvas with your sig. In this example, 50% tolerance was used to select the background. Notice how some of the closer RGB leveled colors were also selected. With a tolerance of 29%, it is "Just right"
  5. Huh? It says "Open with > Paint.net 2.70 for mine...
  6. WOW... Congrats to the winner!!! And if you are too lazy to go back to the first post, the winner is Jake2K
  7. Ok... After you erase the backround, you should get the squirrel with the checkerboard backround. Now go to layers>add new layer (or press ctrl+shift+N. A new transparent layer should have showed up in your layer's dialogue like so: Then press the 'down button' on the layer's dialogue to move down the layer you have just created: Now that the layer has moved below the squirrel, press the fill tool in the tools menu, or press F on your keyboard. Next, select the color you want for the backround and make sure your layer 2 is the active layer by clicking on it... Now click on the image with the fill tool, and your done!!!
  8. I don't think you uploaded the pictures :shock:
  9. I don't know if this is what you want, but can't you just click 'move selection', hold shift, and stretch the selection?
  10. If you installed paint.net in the default folder, then put the .dll plugin in this folder and then restart paint.net if you have it open :wink: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects
