  2. Just would like to thank @Woodsy and @lynxster4 for stepping up to help me last weekend in the OofF. 


    I was taken ill very suddenly last Saturday at exactly 2 PM when the Poll should have been put up 😱  I was in hospital for 4 days on an IV with antibiotics.  I am in the middle of chemo for bladder cancer and got a very nasty infection which hit me very rapidly and had to cal  911.  I'm back home now and hope to get back to normal soon :D

  3. How one person can affect the lives of many - at a great expense!  We live in a 15 floor condo block:




    On Thursday some bright spark, on the 11th floor (we are on the 8th) was rinsing out their swimming apparel, in a wash basin, and left the tap running for hours!  Result?  They flooded 5 floors, including ours.  More damage was done than Hurricane Irma, which hit us in 2017  😨 they are still totting up what the cost of the clean up will be 😱

    @DrewDale ... seriously - she was a horror.  4'10" of pure hatred.  Whether she made you walk tiptoes around the room by your ear or the scruff of your neck ... or her party piece, rapping you on the knuckles with the blunt edge of a ruler.  




    Well, that can't be moi - as  I'm 5' 3" (used to be 5' 4")  :(


    But I have no problem switching between my UK accent and spelling to the American way - it's kind of fun :D


    But I never ever use the English term .................... for an eraser 🤣

  5. Hello @GawkyOrpheus and Welcome to the forum :)


    Your posted images are very small, so I will be guessing that you are asking if there is a way to change an area, already colored, and give it a "Camo" effect? 

    Does that mean camouflage?


    You would have to do it manually and be able to click on the pixels and use a plugin to try for that effect.  I can think of a few you might find useful, like 'Noise' & 'Pixelate'.


    This may not be of any use, but I'll give you a link to a tutorial that shows how to work with small pixels:

    Actually the image is clear if viewed at its proper resolution of 1904 x 7460 pixel resolution. The image is compressed when sent to the Paint.NET forum but still retains its resolution when printed or magnified. I created it as a reference in response to a commenter's query, but if you need to remove it I will not be in anyway offended.


    I have edited your tutorial to reflect that one needs to click three times on the Graphic :)
