  1. I have absolutely no idea what that means, but I'm guessing it's good πŸ˜‚
  2. The hue of the blue can be decided by the entrant, which will give many options
  3. Hello @Just a Random user and welcome to the forum If your black squares and rectangles are not touching each other properly, then you can't select the center properly.
  4. You don't have to have a blue and white background @Manc, like the Moon competition, you can have a blue/white background if you want to.
  5. Hello @eager to learn and welcome to the forum It's a good idea to post your images/graphics to a 'host' site, then copy the code and paste it into your thread. For example this site is free: https://postimages.org/ and you would copy the Direct Code link to add to your post. Also, please remember that the Rules ask that you: "Keep images no larger than 800 pixels tall or wide." Good Luck πŸ˜„
  6. I misspoke about the hubs, it was 2 USB's, which are still kaput, but the computer works fine without them. And, I have tried and tried to fix the internal webcam, to no avail, so I gave up and bought and external webcam 😁
  7. Good point @MJW I will change the requirements to have a white and blue gradient background
  8. Object of the Fortnight #76 - Clouds. For this competition you may have a white & blue gradient for the background if you want to. A tutorial is found here. Some examples. Special thanks to @toe_head2001and @Ego Eram Reputo for being the theme generators. The deadline for entries is 2.00 PM EST (7:00 PM UK Time) on Saturday 26th June 2021. Please see the Countdown Timer for exact time remaining. This thread is for posting competition entries only. If you're not posting an entry, please don't post here. If you want to talk about any of the entries, or ask a question regarding the competition, you can do so in the discussion thread found here. Competition Rules: 1. Your entry must not have a background/backdrop/scene; just the object on a transparent canvas. Shadows and reflections are fine. 2. Your entry must be 100% made using Paint.net.

  9. And the winners are: In First Place are @lynxster4 and @Pixey x 2 with 4 votes each entry πŸ₯‡ In Second Place is @Manc with 3 votes πŸ₯ˆ In Third Place are @lynxster4 and @Ladybug with 2 votes each πŸ₯‰ Well done all. Really good entries from everyone πŸ€—
  10. I can empathize. MS is driving me mad. I've also lost two hubs and connectivity to my internal webcam. I am reading reports that there will be a Windows 11 by the end of year. This I will give a try, but perhaps it's time to get an Apple 😜
