  1. Greetings, Bronzetiger. To help you further, could you provide two things for us? Firstly, a screenshot to illustrate the deviant behaviour. Secondly, to tell us what version of Paint.NET you are using. I believe we have encountered this issue before on both the stable v3.36 and the un-stable v3.5 branch. Thank you very much.

  3. Try this to spin your car: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=26976 Remember that Paint.NET is not an animation program by design, you can only create the individual frames in it.

  5. Add to that Rule #2. This is better suited to Troubleshooting & Bug Reports.I advise that you start a new topic in that section if the following suggestions do not work for you: run the PdnRepair.exe found in the Paint.NET system folder, found in your Program Files; download Paint.NET again from the website and try again.

  7. Hello paulheu. After a quick search for 'neon', I found a whole host of tutorials for how to manipulate text, or images, to have a neon-esque appearance. You can gander through these results here: http://tinyurl.com/mup9co Or, very simply, duplicate your text/image layer (Layers > Duplicate Layer), after which you apply a Gaussian Blur (Effects > Blurs > Gaussian Blur) to the bottom layer before colouring it with Curves, Levels, or other suchlike adjustment tool. This relies on the fact that the object with which to be effected has a transparent background, or an area of transparency around it at least. Jumping back to to searching, there are two search facilities available to you: the built-in Forum Search or the Custom Search Engine. It is highly advisable that you use these before posting again. I hope something of this helps .

  11. He did, Andrew, for another reason, however, as Simon pointed out. He did give you an answer, though, ShadowLocke, so why are you asking again? Because you were not satisfied with the lead developer's response? For your benefit, I'll quote Rick's answer to your question: As what you are attempting to do is not officially supported - that is, whatever negative ramifications result from your actions cannot and will not be troubleshot - I am going to lock your topic, only as endorsing this further is inviting other, possibly damaging modifications to Paint.NET. Simon pointed out a claim made you that might well be supportive, but on the whole, I cannot let this discussion continue with the other things in mind. This doesn't stop you from trying to launch Paint.NET from another application, only asking about it here. Topic locked EDITED: the odd sentence that needed to be written.

  13. jps4141, you should be aware that using [rule=4]legible English[/rule] is a must, as this will make you as understandable as possible to as many people as possible - therefore helping you quicker. That is not to say 'perfect' English, we do not expect that of anyone, nor show preferential treatment to those who do. Just a little bit of regard to how you write will go a long way, and be more courteous to the large number of non-native English speakers on the Forum. You can see already that the first two replies were effectively 'wasted' because a grasp of your request could not be made. This will do nicely, more-or-less: You will require a plugin called 'Align Object'. You can find this in the Plugins section. This will allow you to precisely centre the text (which should be on its own layer) on your background. Alternatively, typing the text, again on its own layer, and highlighting it with any of the selection tools will allow you to use the Move Pixels tool ( ) to move the object around freely. --- Please be more aware next time of your language.

  15. Hello there, flarn2006. Many times: http://tinyurl.com/m6dfwqSo far and for the foreseeable future, you will not see such a tool in Paint.NET. You can, on the flip side, follow the Frosted Glass or Clone Stamp suggestions put forth in the topics linked to above, or you can try the Custom Brushes Mini plugin, where you can 'airbrush' more fluidly and with a brush that will suit you better. There are two versions of Custom Brushes, the better, newer version being located here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=30118 I hope this answers you somewhat. I also hope you will [rule=1]search first[/rule] (with the built-in Forum Search or the Custom Search Engine).

  17. Image menu > Resize Canvas. From this dialog you will need to enter in a larger value in the height field that will accommodate your required text. Next, choose the anchor position top (you will notice the graphic arrows now point downwards) as this will ensure that the additional canvas will land on the bottom, rather than elsewhere.If your image/template needs to conform to a certain height-size, the one you have currently, downsize the image first then resize the canvas as detailed above. You can resize the image from Image > Resize. That is something you need to consult the Ecover Engine's help material for; we cannot be expected to assist with every other product as well as this one. I'm sorry. Are there any forums or help documents you can browse? These would be the best places to start. Howdy.

  19. Rules please! You can grab them from the Forum's Index page or the orange box at the top of this page. All of them, in particular [rule=6]Rule #6[/rule], needs to observed here and for every future posting made by you. Merci beaucoup. Regarding your question, the simple answer is, as Simon hinted at, 'yes': you use Paint/NET for whatever purpose you wish without limitation. Good luck with your videos. Topic locked

  21. Wait until you see me wielding a trowel...
  22. pipp92 is quite correct. The following advice relies that you have the logo to be outlined on its own layer. You can use either of the outline plugins (Outline Object by BoltBait, or one under the same name by pyrochild) to create an outline. To blur them is dependant on the settings you choose: a little experimentation will be required, but the general rule-of-thumb is that BoltBait's plugin needs a low strength, and pyrochild's a very high softness. This will create you an outline to the object with blur. As well, you can use KrisVDM's Drop Shadow plugin much to the same effect. Alternatively, you can: - duplicate your logo's layer ( :DuplicateLayer: ); - use Curves (Adjustments menu > Curves) to whiten the logo (on RGB mode you need to take the curve to the utmost top-left); - Gaussian Blur as required (Effects menu > Blurs > Gaussian Blur). Hope something of this helps. Good luck! If you need to search for any of the plugins, we highly recommend: http://searchpaint.net/
  23. On the same lines, you can also use PowerPoint*. [rule=11]The Rules state three months[/rule], and you have a valid contribution to make, therefore you have nothing to worry about. Although, as you didn't display awareness for this ruling, it suggests you need to peruse the Rules: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=3446 *I don't own a copy of Microsoft Office anymore, though I do remember it being a copy of PowerPoint 2003. I'm assuming that there were no changes in this respect for PPt 2007.
  24. My liking for your post is twofold: 1) you accurately named an event in human prehistory; and 2) you appropriately and correctly implied domestication in conjunction with said prehistoric event -- in parallel with standard belief that domestication came as a result from the sedentism of the Neolithic -- in this case substituting the resource of fauna and/or flora with that of numbers.Do you have an interest in archaeology, or was that just a free-floating fact you know? ---- Congratulations, pyrochild! Well done, David! (?)
  25. There will always be occasions whereby certain hardware or technologies refuse to work with certain software. Perhaps such a fluke is at work here. I'm sure we will continue to ponder on your troubles for a solution, until then, the workaround both you and Ego Eram Reputo use may well be the best way forward. I'm sorry I personally couldn't be of any more help.
