Well, I have just finished making a logo for my new project, called "MiniUploader" There it is:
Well, it wasn't too difficult to make that picture, BUT I have noticed a few things that were going to make me crazy.
Look at the girl with nice gun in her hand She is pixelated, yeah? I think so. I selected the "Smooth" quality and that's what I got. I think that thing which we call "antialiasing" should be improved.
There should be "drag&drop" feature, just as in Corel Photo-Paint or Paint Shop Pro. And I think, there should be some nice features in "layers" window, such as: setting the transparency, locking, renaming etc. (I know I can get all those just by double-clicking on a layer, but it just takes too long).
Also, I think layers select is made by sbd drunk I think it shouldn't select whole image area when we select just one layer.
And, the last (I think...) one: when we scale a selection, and then rotate it/flip/do something with it, we can notice that that part of selection which was out of image area, disappeared. It can make someone nervous.
3. Saving file as JPEG
Hmm, at first I tried to save this logo as JPEG, but it saved only our nice girl with gun, and everything else was black. I think it changed a transparent background into a black one, and when all letters were black... they disappeared Default background in JPEG, BMP etc. files should be WHITE.
Eh, it's so hard to go back through the history. If you have ~100 points in that window, you can go and make some tea, and it should be done just as you come back. Is it too hard to set it as it's in Photoshop?
And I think that's all. Paint.NET is very nice program, but these bugs make me mad
And, of course, sorry for my English... ^.-
