    Help With this 3d Text

    You can use this Plugin kill color keeper to remove the black. But, you will be left without a black outline around the text. I suggest, after running the Plugin, to use AA's Assistant, then select the text with the magic wand, at Flood Mode, and then use BolBait's Outline Plugin. After that, use AA's Assistant again. P.S. Please watch the size of the images you post. The last one was a bit too big

    Help With this 3d Text

    Hi @Eli That is a very nice result you posted I am not that well versed with making text, but did learn once .... can't remember where, to outline the resulting merged 3D text using BoltBait's Outline. These are the steps I used for my result, before using Shape 3D. ~Clickable~

    Help With this 3d Text

    Hi @666Ben666 and Welcome to the forum I wonder if you have seen these tutorials: Also, you can use the Shape 3D Plugin to get a 'rounded' curve to your text. As for the Font - I used Arial Black in the above image.

    @SteveAnge Welcome to the forum Off the top of my head I can think of the Mandala Plugin. How to install Plugins
  13. Welcome @LeeHnetinka to Paint.net Read all about it here.
  14. Hello @stingle and Welcome If you are looking for a simple outline of the castle, you can do this: 1. Remove the white background - magic wand and hit delete. 2. Select the castle with the magic wand. 3. Make a new layer above the castle - make sure the 'ants are crawling' (magic wand) 4. Go to Effects/Object/Outline Object and check the box for 'preserve canvas'. 5. You will now have an outline on its own layer. ~Clickable~
