  1. Hi @Misty Rain and Welcome to the forum When I first opened Paint.net I thought, "Now what I am going to do ?" The only way to learn is to start in the Tutorial area. Start with the Beginners Tutorials and follow through the steps which will help you to learn how this program works. It takes time and a lot of patience. There are many on here who will be happy to answer any questions that may arise. Good Luck

  3. Hi @Maggie you could do this: 1. Use this site to remove the background https://www.remove.bg/ 2. Bring the resulting photo into PDN and then cut out, either person, and paste into a new layer. 3. Play around moving the 2 together. You may have to crop off the bottom area as lining up the crockery etc., may be fiddly ~ clickable for larger image ~

  7. Hello @Aleksa and @Wild_Wehttam and Welcome to the forum We need to know a bit more about: 1. Where are you downloading from ? Is it Classic or Store-bought. 2. Are all of your Windows updates up-to date? 3. Which systems do you have Windows 10, or whatever? 4. Do you have the latest .NET Framework?
  8. Hello @Jim M If you are wanting to use the Custom Mini Brushes and have Photoshop brushes you want to import, this is how it works. You will need this: And here is how to go forward: When you download brushes from somewhere. 1. They will appear in a ZIP. 2. Save to a folder and unzip. 3. Open AbrViewer. 4. Navigate to the file you unzipped, via - File - select Folder - and find it on your computer. Click Open. 5. The brushes will 'pop' up in the pane. 6. Change the thumbnail size to 500 and click on Export and they will be sent to the folder 'Brushes' in Paint.NET user files.
