  3. What a lovely landscape Lots of detail and shiny too. I'm wondering if you used this tutorial for the trees? I've been meaning to try it out sometime
  4. Can you tell us what is your computer operating system please. Also, do you have all of the Window's Updates current? Please read through this thread for other pointers: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/110411-common-install-uninstall-crash-problems-and-solutions/
  5. Hello @Schorty and Welcome to the forum Please try to use this to clean up your computer and then try to re-install Paint.net again.
  6. Many, many thanks @welshblue And, I hope you are 'hanging-in there' and are not feeling too poorly 💊

  8. Been there - done that. @barbieq25 warned me when I first started using Paint.net to Save Often!
  9. I am using the same version as @Seerose and it works fine. As @Seerose made it up to the point of saving - it means she must have the correct things in the correct folders? Perhaps @toe_head2001 or @BoltBait or any other computer savvy gobbledegook reader, can shed some light on the error message 😁
  10. Oh dear - busted! 😱
  11. I tried to use the Character Map but it doesn't show up the script that @Sonya is looking for. Actually Canvas font DOES now show up in the Windows Character Map (as I saved it previously explained in an earlier post) into the Windows Font Folder. However, although I see it in the Character Map I have tried, in vain, to copy and paste to no avail as per instructions in the link here
  12. I thought, as did @lynxster4 that Aurora looked like an emerald. Also, it looks quite stormy Gorgeous color
  13. Hello @Rose00 and Welcome to the forum I think I read on the forum, not so long ago, about some people having this problem with images saved via Firefox. Where are copying the transparent images from, please? Also, can you attach one in a post here so that we can test it. As you are a long time user of Paint.net I assume - if you are saving your own images, that they are saved in .png format and saved either with Auto detect, or 32 bit.
  14. Hi @Sonya. I did a bit of research and found out this: 1. Download Canvas Script (you can use the link @HyReZ gave) - I logged in with Facebook. 2. Go to top tool bar - Free Fonts - canvas script. 3. Below the video is the free download in blue. 4. Save the Zip and open it. 5. Go to Control Panel on your Computer and add the Canvas-Regular.otf to the Font Folder. What I've discovered is that you can then pull it up in the WhichSymbolPlus................. BUT you would have to add a new layer in paint.net, and move the text yourself, as each time you type the text appears over the first one. Most annoying. Also, I notice that they only give you one free font with the free download, then if you want more, you must pay. It does, however, work when you use Word.
  15. Ahh - thank you for explaining that
  16. Hello @Newcomer and Welcome to the forum As @NomBot hasn't logged in since 2017 I will try to answer your question. 1. You first download his plugin `~ unzip it and save to the Effects Folder in paint.net. 2. Import a picture (he used one with a head) 3. Then go to ~ Effects ~ Artistic ~ BoxFitting Good Luck!
  17. Hello @Sonya and Welcome The Which Symbol Plus goes into the paint.net Effects Folder and then is found here: It can only find symbols/text that are already in the Windows Font Folder on your computer. I don't think paint.net can work with script. Here is a post in another thread by @Rick Brewster about script: Posted September 10, 2018 Sorry, there isn't yet any scripting support. Someday ? The list of stuff to implement is very long ... although scripting and a richer plugin API have an amplifying effect, so it may see the light of day sooner rather than later. EDIT: Please disregard above. So, we have to work out how to get that font you need, into the Windows Font Folder. I have read this article on the subject, but I need more time to work it out. Hopefully someone else will know before I solve it 😁
  18. What do you get when you cross a bear and a skunk?
  19. Hi @klaxxon I downloaded your image, played with every which way and cannot get the error. It saves as both .png, .jpeg, etc. You are using Save As, right?
  20. Thank you @JulioCoolio for your lovely comment
  21. What an amazing color - exactly like roses - which I love
  22. I just downloaded this latest Beta version and tried working with a large canvas, as per @klaxxon's dimensions, and am having no trouble saving to .png. or .jpeg
