  1. Hello @Sonario648 and Welcome to the forum I note you already have dpy's Plugin, but, FYI - you can find additional Shapes here. If you have a speech bubble you like, but want to re-draw/add to it, you can open it in paint.net, then go to Shapemaker and use the drawing aids to create your own. This is a great video to show you how Shapemaker works.

    What's next for brush factory?

    @Joshua Lamusga I have to admit to not using it much these days - due to not painting much at the moment - but when I do I've been very happy with it and, besides perhaps having a chalk brush, can't think of anything more I'd like to change

    Chroma key

    Hi @Fiona and Welcome The Chroma you are looking for is a Plugin which can be found here. You say you have the store bought Paint.net? You will, after downloading the Zip file above, have to put it into a new Folder. Please scroll down the page to see the instructions for the store version (which in beneath the Classic.) https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/InstallPlugins.html If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask

    Right - this is the way to do that. 1. Import your glitter texture into a New Layer. 2. With the Magic Wand, select the swooch layer/shape. Again with Contigous (instead of Global) and inside of the shape. 3. Switch back to your glitter layer, use Ctrl + i (to invert) and then hot delete on your keyboard. 4. You can either keep the outline layer, or uncheck it. 5. Then flatten and use Save as to either .jpeg or .png. Tip: if you have any jaggy areas after deleting, a great Plugin to smooth out is AA's Assistant. Good luck

    Thanks so much @Seerose ?

    Hello @theHydra and welcome to the forum A simple way would be: 1. Select your 'swooch' with the Magic Wand on Global and make a new layer. 2. With the shape still selected go to Effects - Noise and play with the slider. Hope this is what you are looking for. There are a few other things, like cropping a glitter image into the swooch area. Please let us know if you need more help.

    Many thanks @LionsDragon I used this technique by @MadJik . I often play around with plugins and then save files for use at a later date. @lynxster4 Glad you liked it I used an old file, which would have begun with @barbieq25's jewel tute. But I like the sound of Mother-of-Pearl

    Urgent help needed!

    Hello and Welcome @jhvhkgcv Until a 'tech' logs on who may know about what's causing your problem, here's my 2 cents . Can you tell us what operating system you have on your laptop please. And, how much memory do you have? And it's worth to try this: OS (C:) – Program Files – Paint.net – scroll down to the PdnRepair.exe and run it.
