  1. Unknown123, be aware of the Rules (viewtopic.php?f=20&t=3446). You'll read that your title breaks [rule=6]Rule #6[/rule] which explains that topic titles must be descriptive. Also, we are not here at your beck and call, to make your life that little more easier. That is a Paint.NET tutorial you linked to, so you should be able to follow it. Don't forget that you can pause the video at key moments to catch-up or look closely at a certain move, tool or effect. Give it a try before demanding help. Because of the title: topic locked
  2. Hey srichards. Give this a try: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=28790 With that, you can cut out the globe/DNA strand/whatever and place it over the eyes on its own layer. Alternatively, you can cut out the eyes instead, copying the globe/DNA strand/whatever to a new layer ( :AddNewLayer: ), moving it beneath the face ( :Down: ). This way has the benefit of effectively 'constraining' the item to the shape of the eyes. Good luck, and post if you require further help.
  3. Good greetings Jeff54. To adjust the one colour channel, you have Curves and Levels at your disposal (http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/Curves.html, http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/Levels.html, respectively). If, however, you want to change, say, only the red coloured pixels (as opposed to the red channel on the whole image), you can select every red pixel by the Magic Wand - with the Global flood mode - to select all similar pixels within the tolerance range. You can read more on the latter option here: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/MagicWand.html Do say if either is what you're looking for.
  4. Moved to Troubleshooting & Bug Reports Does your scanner support Windows Image Acquisition 2.0 (WIA) (or said to be TWAIN compatible)? Also, have you tried scanning internally through Paint.NET, i.e., via File > Acquire > From Scanner or Camera?
  5. You can find that in the menu Adjustments > Levels, or by hitting Ctrl + L.
  6. Whilst you're posting that image for us, give this a try: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=28790
  7. bluescasters, please review the Rules (viewtopic.php?f=20&t=3446) before posting again, most especially [rule=6]Rule #6[/rule] and [rule=15]#15[/rule]: not only is your topic title particularly generic and unhelpful, but your signature is far too large (some people's Internet connections are not the fastest to load so many images plus everything else). Because of the title alone, topic locked
  8. Hi there jeszbby. Sorry, no there isn't. There are no plugins, there is no system to support additional blend modes, and so far, there is no word for doing so in future versions. You can either choose a mode that is as close as, an equivalent in Paint.NET, or save as a flattened image (best to opt for PNG to reduce risk of quality-loss) in Photoshop with the blend mode in effect, then import to Paint.NET and continue work.
  9. Amongst almost all your work, I'm loving your latest addition, Pepper and Salt. The little details, such as the dispensing holes' rim, make it a fantastic piece! I enjoy visiting your gallery, and it's disgraceful I haven't commented before.
  10. You like your swirls, don't you? Looking good, McyD, there are some nice pieces here - as I said before, keep up the good work!
  11. Quite so, Simon, which is why we won't be posting ways to get 'around that restriction'. Yes? Yes. Fantabulous.
  12. I does indeed, and according to your description, the DivX issue might not have anything to do with your problem.I'm puzzled by the fact only a few file types save and open in Paint.NET. I cannot think at the moment to a further course of action, my deepest apologies. Perhaps somebody else does - I didn't want to leave you hanging without knowing who was helping or what was being done towards you.
  13. Ah, okay. These accidents happen, don't worry. Has repairing/reinstalling the .NET Framework worked? You can reinstall Paint.NET afterwards to make sure.
  14. Hey varkpilot. This tutorial might give you some ideas: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=28790 See how this helps, and if you require a little more direction, do not hesitate to ask.
  15. McyD, you are more than welcome to start your own, personal gallery in The Pictorium (viewforum.php?f=26), where you will be able to receive comments and critique on your artwork. Remember to only create one thread, though. Also, whilst you're at it, you will need to refresh yourself with the Rules (viewtopic.php?f=20&t=3446), and the Pictorium Guidelines (viewtopic.php?f=26&t=22620). Because of the nature, I'm locking this topic. No hard feelings . See you soon in The Pictorium!
  16. No, as chances are pyrochild is breaking Paint.NET again to make his plugin work.
  17. Try repairing or reinstalling your .NET Framework. You can repair from Add / Remove Programs in XP or Programs and Features in Vista. Also, details on how your Paint.NET was originally 'deleted' might help - something might be lingering that shouldn't be.
  18. Good greetings kirarxe. After a quick search for that error code, I found two topics that would be of interest to you: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=24645&p=182338 viewtopic.php?f=10&t=25542&p=196741 The first particularly as it only took a reinstall of Paint.NET and the .NET Framework to work out the problem. In the second link, it was advised that the Framework should be repaired; we never found out if that worked for the user. In sum: give the Framework a reinstall or repair. Good luck!
  19. Ideas? Only one for the moment from myself: are you saving all to the same folder? If so (or not so), does the folder contain any video files of the DivX variety? I only ask as there is a (known) reported issue regarding this particular video format.
  20. Not using a translator are you, by any chance? We are not being awkward on purpose, just that your style of writing is rather difficult to follow. This may not be your fault entirely, so we understand. Firstly, from what I've gathered, there is only one easy method for moving a picture - or parts thereof - to a designated location: Mike Ryan's. To further his answer, you should be looking toward the Status Bar at the bottom of the screen: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/StatusBar.html You should be able to follow the co-ordinates precisely on the right-hand side of this bar.Secondly, there is no way to type in your co-ordinates directly, you can only move manually in Paint.NET. Whether this will be a feature in the future or not is entirely up to the lead developer, Rick Brewster. Do not hold your breath for too long, though. Lastly, also from what I've gathered, there is no way to drag and drop between pictures, only within the same one. From your attachment, you seem quite able to do this. You should look at oma's reply for getting around this: What I've tried to do here is summarise what has already been said, whilst also answering as much as possible from what you have given us/what we have understood. I hope something from one or all of us is getting closer to what you want from Paint.NET.

  22. If you want to have a white background, then you can either: 1) save as 24-bit, which will default any transparent pixels as white; or 2) as ragingsuns pointed out, have a white layer underneath your image, flatten, and save with 'Auto' selected. This will have it saved in 24-bit. Personally, I like to have my awkward knickers on and purposely bypass clever features you build in.
  23. Are you saving as a 32-bit PNG rather than 24-bit? For context: 32-bit can handle transparency, 24-bit cannot.
  24. Two things: 1) Paint.NET doesn't include a pen tool; 2) if by 'pen tool' you mean 'paintbrush' or 'pencil', then the Line / Curve tool used in this tutorial by Simon, and originally illustrated by Tendercrisp, is far superior. Learn it, it's worth it. Aside from that, I'm pinning this tutorial in the stead of Tendercrisp's. I understand how fond we all are of his tutorial, but without images and written instructions, it's not only useless, it's also breaking tutorial guidelines .
  25. Greetings calm_joe. Now, it should be said before we continue that I have a nasty habit of being a little dense. So, could you explain a little further by what you mean, please? It would make it far more approachable so more helping brains can... help. For instance, what are you referring to when you write: 'standard translations of a marked picture'? Many thanks.
