  1. I can't vote (don't know why), but I do answer. I'm using Windows XP sp2. Why no SP3? Because everything works fine with SP2, I download critical security updates, and I know that some softwares I'm using have issues with XP SP3 (and .Net 3.5 framework...). I'll see what I do when PdN 4.0 comes out Regards, Skro
  2. No, that won't work easily (e.g. when you want to recolor a multiple selection²... The larger the brush, the less applications you need, and therefore the less chance you have to forget tiny bits) Regards, Skro ²ndlr: magic wand rules
  3. Hello! I have worked quite a bit with PdN for a webcomic translation, and there is a point that really annoys me (not to say block me): character and line spacings cannot be modified. I know that we can move manually the lines and character once written, but for pages and pages, that's not good, basically for two reasons: 1/ it takes a loooooooooooong time 2/ we cannot assure that everything is perfectly aligned and that all the spaces are the same size 3/ in the case of overlapping characters, the one in the back is hidden by the selection that is moved. (yes that's three reasons ) I don't know how this is feasible, but I would not have to go (back) to Photoshop for this (imho) stupid problem. Regards, Skro
  4. By the way,the latest version of my Cthulhic desktop background (actually, the one I have at work): Regards, Skro
  5. Did you have a look at the whole bunch of tutorial that only are expecting you here, in which you can find almost everything from the chrome effect to a fire generation. Then you can try and use some tips, and create a whole new, nice and clean stuff... Regards, Skro
  6. Hi! Yes it's me again, with another suggestion: could it be possible to implement a paintbrush shape, instead of the simple round brush? Basic ideas would be: - square - spray (some random stuff) and why not add the possibility to add user-designed shapes... Regards, Skro
  7. Exactly! Cutout effect is just what I needed. I thought at Posterize at first, but I feared the very very very large amount of time I was going to spend in selecting each slice of color... Regards, Skro
  8. Three letters for the answer: y.e.s. Regards, Skro
  9. By the way, the Tint effect achieves this alone. No need to convert to B&W But you may have to play with the levels to get something nice Regards, Skro
  10. Hi! As I have ideas, but absolutely no knowledge of any C/++/#/whatever competency, here is my suggestion: could it be possible to create a plugin that would "simplify" the colors (basically like in this ad campaign)? My idea would be to split the palette into (more or less) little zones with a defined color, and every color within the zone would be changed to this particular color... Thanks in advance to the one who will perform this (and my apologies if this has already been done...) Regards, Skro
  11. I think that many of us will try and dodge Vista for some time... Regards, Skro
  12. Hi! I just worked a little bit around with PdN, and I noticed that every selection, when you click outside the picture, unselects everything... Every selection? No, a small village still resists to...² By the way, not a small village, but the Magic Tool Selection, and as I'm overusing it, I find annoying always to change tool or Ctrl+A every time I want to change my selection... Hope it's not a big deal... Regards, Skro ²note: Oops, I mistook with something else
  13. If I'm not mistaken, all the installed fonts you have installed (in C:\Windows\Fonts) appear in Paint.Net. I agree that it can be quite boring for your word processing program (and that Windows could include different fonts subfolder so that they could be sorted), but everything is accessible. Regards, Skro
  14. Review of Paint.Net in Yahoo! News (in french)... Hope you'll get a bunch of downloads this way. Regards, Skro
  15. There's a feather plugin available here: http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=2498 And it works fine. Regards, Skro
  16. Fake² done today using the latest Pdn v3.0 final Regards, Skro, those who haven't studied chemistry cannot understand
  17. Digg.com is an 'invention' in web2.0 for sharing links (basically). IMHO totally useless, except if you want to make some buzz out of something... But is there any reason to make a buzz around a product as good as PdN?² Regards, Skro, downloading the new version... ²ndlr: yes, alas. People don't know Pdn yet, and they only download cracked copies of Pho[no TM plaese]op... How fool they are
  18. Well, it semms that that may have been the proxy at work which caéused me not to update automatically Pdn. I'm updating it at home and everything works fine. And er... I still have the old palette (not a big issue as I downloaded both of Boltbait's palettes). Is it due to the update? Regards, Skro
  19. Hu, automatic update fails for me (is the fact that my copy is in french or something else - proxy or some stuff?). By the way, I'm downloading it directly, will be as quick. Regards, Skro
  20. My guess is that it's a limit for forum posting or some stuff like this. By the way, a good jpeg compression easily lowers the file under the 100k limits (if you're not too expectant over the quality... 100k is quite small). Just save as... select jpg and set the compression quality to whatever you want. Regards, Skro
  21. I use Pdn 3.0 beta 3 though... Screenshot to prove it: Of course, this can be an artefact from an older version, as I used the automatic update... I've also seen something else in the shortcuts. 'Shift' should be changed to 'Maj' (e.g. for the "Paste into new layer" option, Ctrl+Shift+V => Ctrl+Maj+V). Not a big issue, but 'Maj' looks more familiar to frenchies Regards, Skro
  22. Yes, in the Edit menu, there is a "Paste into new layer" option (shortcut Ctrl+Shift+V)... and even a "paste into new image", if you need it regards, Skro
  23. By the way, this is done sort of automatically. If you've got a .gif that you want to "transparentize", using the Magic Wand tool + Delete works fine. Then save back into gif... Et voila. Or maybe I'm totally mistaken and you meant something completely different... Regards, Skro
  24. Wow! First of all (and first impression), when you change the language to french, you don't say "tenue en compte", mais "prise en compte" in the dialog box (yes, I use Pdn in english, basically for plugins reasons) Then, I hadn't anything which burst into my face, except one question: Why in the Color window The Hue/Saturation/intensity is translated NSV while in the Adjusment menu, it is translated Nuanc/Saturation/Intensité (which would be NSI, not NSV)? Oh I almost forgot: in the Rotate/Zoom dialog box, there is a problem in the "Deplacement X" and "Deplacement Y" libelles: we only read "Déplacem". That's all I see for the moment. Be back when I find out something else Regards, Skro
  25. Hi! I'm experiencing a "bug", not really blocking, but somehow annoying when I work on a couple of layers (to which I obviously don't give a name). At a certain moment, the small preview in the 'layers' window becomes completely white, until I click again on the layer and perform an action on it. I agree that it's only minor issue Regards, Skro
