  1. Hello, First off, I love the new Paint.NET beta! You guys have done a great job on it. That being said, I am having a hard time copy/pasting and moving selections compared to the prior version. Sometimes I want to copy an area, then paste it and move it to another area to overwrite what was there, but if the selection is too small it I can only get the selection to rotate or stretch. If I happen to get the 4 arrow move icon and try to move the selection, it actually removes from the old position, which leaves a transparency crosshatch in its place. The old version didn't work like that. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Cav
  2. Thanks for this! It is the behavior I was looking for. I was so used to clicking inside the selection in the prior version.
  3. Yeah, I used the layers method once, but that's such a pain compared to the way the prior version worked. If I wanted to do some quick edits and copy/paste several selections then I'd have to keep creating a new layer? Or are you saying I can just create 1 additional layer and do all of my selection copy/pasting like the old version? That wouldn't be so bad.
  4. Actually, I ended up creating something close enough with a friend at work that has photoshop, then I produced something in PDN. Here's a sample: The top tab bars were done in Photoshop and the bottom were done in PDN. It's basically a white to transparent gradient image that I use as a table cells background, then I set the cell bgcolor to what ever I want and I don't have to fool with CSS other than to set the cell borders as I did in the sample. Though the PDN version isn't exactly what I wanted it'll do for now while I continue to play with PDN. I like the Photoshop version as well, but it's a little too subtle. I still want to try to reproduce Mr. Monkey's sig version in PDN, but haven't had time. Thanks for the help, CT
  5. NOTE: If this subject line still isn't suitable for the forum mods, then I give up... Hi, I'm a web developer that's new to graphics, so have no clue what to search for, and was wondering if there was a way to simplify my life and was hoping you guys could help. I was poking around the net when I stumbled across The Sketch Pad : Wet Paint and liked the gradient glass effect they use for section headers and such. The ones that are light blue on top and then darker blue on bottom. I know I won't word this correctly, but I hope I make myself clear... Is there a way to produce a semi-transparent effect like that in an image so that I can put it in a HTML table cell then just change the table cell back color so that I can have one image that can be any color and look like it has a glass gradient effect? If there's no way without creating an image for every color I may need, then I guess that's what I will have to do. Thanks in advance, CT
  6. Both the background color and cell text will be pulled from a database. Then I will either use a stylesheet that is built dynamically or standard HTML attributes such as bgcolor="" to implement the style I am looking for. The users will basically be able to pick various color themes and I didn't want to have a lot of graphics for things like tabs and headers. I wanted them to just pick a color, then when the HTML is rendered it puts the glass effect in the cell that happens to be tab. I hope this is what you were asking for, but if not just let me know. Thanks, CT
  7. I understand completly. I looked at the RULES thread, but apparently I was too busy trying to comprehend the letter "a" that I missed item #4. :oops: I think what I am wanting is something like Mr. Monkey's sig/banner, but I have clue zero about this Z Index is in PDN. I know Z Order in programming, so I was thinking it may have something to do with layers. Either way, I'll keep plugging away until I figure it out, but any suggestions and/or tutorials for PDN that might get me started would be a great help. Since PDN is fairly new I haven't found many articles, except for Photoshop articles, which seem to make up every 3rd page on the net. Thanks, CT
  8. Yeah, that is what I am looking for. It doesn't need to be too fancy or glassy, just so long as it has what looks like a little light reflecting. The thing is, all I want is the effect. The background color and text will be set via HTML. I will have to play around with PDN and see if I can come up with something. CT
