  1. Press F8. Be aware that you can only change the font while you're in text-entering mode. Once you 'finish' the text you can't change the font (easily). I suggest adding text in a new layer so you don't muck up the original image (use F7 to show the layers tool)
  2. Yeah, I noticed this and it's a really, really nice way to do things. Great idea.
  3. this doesn't work for images with vast numbers of colours, for example those on allrgb.com I've attached an example image. It (the full size version, linked) contains 16777216 colours, but this plugin reports that it contains only 4664751 colours.
  4. I love it, I would buy that chessboard if someone made it. And I'd love to see a TARDIS.
  5. very nice. I like the top and middle ones best, to me the bottom one lacks a center point of focus. The middle one has good depth.
  6. heh :oops: well, we have a lot of books..... actually, we don't. We have about... 200 books I guess? so, around 1 in 4 have something in them. yeah, second hand bookshops are great for finding things. I've altered the homepage to display the four highest rated things. I'll add a "view more popular things" link soon. it's not quite perfect, as it isn't calculating the number of ratings properly, but the ratings themselves are correct.
  7. thanks for the kind comments and feedback, everyone. Though I've been away, I've still been using and recommending pdn to everyone I know I've been getting more into photography than CG stuff lately. Originally I was going to have the most recent thing displayed on the homepage, then I chickened out and just went with text, but that's a good idea - I will do that - thanks Helio and livewrong. Also, if Jon who uploaded that Bible note was from this forum- THANKYOU. You're actually the first stranger to have added something re: adding (yet) another post... I don't think I'll push my luck with the mods - maybe later
  8. hi, on the advice of boltbait, I'm re-posting this in this thread. I've just launched my new website about things found in books, and I'd like your feedback about the logo, general design and features. thanks for looking, -h.
  9. Hey, long time no speaky. I've been a very busy bee. I've just launched a new website about random things found in books. Designed in PDN, of course. Would love feedback on design, usability, features, etc. thanks for looking, -h.
  10. nice effect. would make a good plugin imo.
  11. Brambori: no, I don't think you did follow all the steps; make sure you've put the gradient there and that the layer visibility is ticked in the layers window. vobie: erm.. try the conditional hue saturation plugin (search the plugins forum for it)? or play with brightness/contrast..
  12. I think this will work: when you create the gradient, make it fade from blue to transparent, instead of black to transparent.
  13. some totally trippy (sorry, I'll stop after this one)
  14. they're not edited at all (or at most, sharpening/brightness/contrast adjustments), but my photo album is here. I think there are some good ones there.
  15. no, I meant my water drop was badly contrasted, but yes, yours is more visible now, too. You should do a tutorial for it, I'd be interested to see how you got the drops looking so realistic.
  16. rainshadow: 6/11 - it's a cool effect but it needs something more, and I don't think blue goes well with orange. buzzkill: 9/11. I really can't fault it. except that the box looks a little too light to me, perhaps that's to offset the moon, or it's my monitor. note: marking out of 11 to account for the day someone comes along with a sig that is so totally awesome it blows everything else away.
  17. Helio; that's awesome, dude! lionheart: I don't consider myself a pro at all; I only started using PDN for anything other than cropping and brightness adjustments when I joined this forum. majik: I like the 'oil candle' one, it's got a good texture to it.
  18. that would be a good feature, though usedHonda's suggestion would also work nicely.
  19. yeah, just use the ellipse select tool (press S three times) draw the oval, press Ctrl-I to invert the selection and press delete To get it the right size, you can use Ctrl-R and resize to a "print size" of 8x10 inches.
  20. you could try feathering her. or if you want to get more fiddly, magicwand so that she is selected with the white stuff, i.e. so that your selection forms an outline of her. then use the white arrow tool and drag the bottom corner nub to shrink the selection by about 4px up and left, then use the black arrow tool to move the selection 2px down and right. Invert the selection and delete. I haven't tested that method, as I can't find the original priscilla you used.
  21. nah, I'm just jealously thinking of all the colour adjustments that must be possible with a Nikon. lucky
  22. yeah, my laptop screen's contrast is rubbish. If you reduce contrast and increase brightness, you'll see it better.. I'll try to remember to compensate for that in the future.
  23. (alternatively, learn to use your nikon properly! )
