  1. Localization BUG: Apparently, the string used to log layer opacity changes in the History is made by simply concatenating the strings 'Layer' and 'Opacity'. I got to this conclusion by searching the entire .resx files (both: english and pt-br) finding no trace of 'Layer Opacity' or its translated couterpart 'Camada Opacidade'. Although the concatenation solution does work in english, it may not work for other languages. For instance, in portuguese, the correct translation in this case would be 'Opacidade da camada'. Probably other latin languages like spanish, italian and french will h
  2. Hummm... I thought it was a thousand...
  3. I noticed this too and it is really annoying. I even made a screenshot to illustrate it. The case is, after clicking the Help button, I tend to move mouse pointer diagonally in the bottom left direction (shown in red), which makes menu disappear. Only when carefully moving mouse as shown in green I can effectively reach a menu item.
  4. I don't think it's a bug. It's "undocumented behavior"! Well, now it's documented, so... whatever.
  5. Well, I did it too. No more funny/nonsense phrases now In fact, PT-BR it's almost completed. I'm just checking consistency of related strings (like Statusbar tips) and fine tuning the entire set of strings.
  6. Yes, I have. And, just to make it clear, both screenshots were taken on the same system, AFTER calibration. So, I assume it's not related to calibration. Again, I don't take this as a big issue. We will end up getting used to it, I think. It's just that, when compared side by side, the old rendering looks better (for me, at least).
  7. Well, it's not like it's causing big trouble. As I said, it's more like a small tweak to improve usability. And I think the other animations (such as when moving layers or reordering image thumbnails) are pretty neat. So, I'll stay with the nervous ants for now
  8. I can reproduce the taskbar bug. And, regarding font rendering, I'm trying to get used to it, but I still prefer it the 3.5 way too. Just out of curiosity, I took a screenshot of Edit menu in both versions and put them side-by-side. Sharpness in previous version is much better, IMO.
  9. First things first: big thanks for this! I've been anxiously waiting to play with it for years... This thing is pretty stable for an alpha release. After a couple hours playing with it, including use of lots of plugins, it hasn't crashed a single time. Where's the fun? Now, seriously. As I said, no bugs found so far, but I'd like to point some usability issues that have bothered me: - Rotation handles are too intrusive: they are inside and outside the selection rectangle. I ended up rotating selections, when in fact I just wanted to move them. Maybe those handles should appear only
  10. Brazilian magazine INFO EXAME (biggest technology magazine in Brazil), released today a nice Paint.NET review. It is in Portuguese, so I tried to translated it to English. I hope there's no big grammar mistakes :oops: , but if someone finds some errors in the text below, please drop me a line. Here is the full article: Paint.NET gives Microsoft Paint an upgrade This program started as a students project at Washington State University using Microsoft's .NET Framework and its graphic libraries. The idea was to create an alternative to MS Paint, which is bundled with Windows. After the proj
  11. BTW, Aviary has a GREAT tutorials section! It's worth to take a look.
  12. http://www.mechcad.net Hum, AceMoney website... anyone in need of putting finances in order?
  13. Ditto! I already did it. It's like having a local app indeed.
  14. Did anyone notice pixlr.com? I've made a forum search and didn't found any mention to it, so I thought it was worth to share... It is a free online image editor, made completely in Flash. Its interface is very elegant and polished and tries to mimic Photoshop's. Regarding features, it is far from Photoshop or even Paint.NET, but it has the basic functionality, including some filters. Can be useful for some basic adjusts, if you don't have a local editor installed. In fact, at least ONE feature is far superior compared to PdN: BRUSHES! ;-) And there's also some Tools, which PdN misses: D
  15. Hey, MadJik, Very nice plugin! Thank you. Just one thing: I think "Transparency of the curl" and "Back transparency" are misnamed. Something with "0" transparency is "completely opaque", so your logic is inverted. IMO, those options should be "Opacity of the curl" and "Back opacity". Anyway, great work. Congrats!
