  1. I'm running a series of blog posts for people new to Paint.NET ( Making Images for Custom Cards ) and included a link to the main download page. More than one ended up downloading GIMP instead, and of course got lost in trying to figure it out. I've nothing against it but even I have a hard time with its UI so don't use it myself. But what's weird to me is the GIMP logo is presented foremost in the page while the Dot.NET link is off to the right as if the viewer is intended to get GIMP rather than Paint.NET. And if that's the intended result I can report it's working. I had to change the blog
  2. Using UnFREEze has been pretty useful. I did this GIF with Paint.Net and animated the resulting image batch with UnFREEze.
  3. Well, Thanks! How'd I bend the animation? To be honest, the first test -- the circular version -- was one animation. For the second one I re-sized (copies of) each image to flatten the rounds to ellipses. Had to mess around a bit testing how to position each one uniformly 'behind' the cup drawing, which acted as sort of a picture frame. Then flattened each layer to save as a new series. Hope that description makes sense. So it was each of the stills that were made ellipses. As for opening GIF animations in Paint.Net I seem to recall someone posting about a plug in -- Simon Brown's Animated GI
  4. Wow. All of you. I appreciate your comments guys. Thanks.
  5. Thanks much! It's kind of a different approach to using that plug-in. I hope it sparks off some new ideas.
  6. Kharma Macchiato This is the realization of a little project that actually started way back in 2008. I'd been doing a series of coffee-related images and had this black and white Yin-Yang symbol in front of me, wondering how that might look as the creamy surface of an espresso coffee drink called a macchiato. I opened it in Paint.Net and changed the colors from black and white to umber and tan. Then I used pyrochild's Twist 1.0 plug-in to create a series of transforms, swirling it gradually from the original Yin-Yang symbol to a stirred espresso with cream. The next step was to create a f
  7. Hello everyone. Haven't posted to the forums in ages as I spend most of my time cranking out new stuff, but I want to thank you all for your contributions as Paint.Net's one of my prime tools and I have you all to thank for what I've been able to learn over the last few years. So thanks, guys. And to Rick Brewster, his team and all you fantastic plug in developers - well, you all rock. Hopefully this thread will suffice to prove that people can use Paint.Net for just about anything.

  12. Hi ! Thanks. (I am guessing you mean search in the application's "Paint.Net Search.." selection in the Help dialog.? When I do I see numerous forum threads on the topic. Hmm. Though I'm fairly proficient now in navigating these applications I am in no way a code geek. So while I can manage to install plugins, I certainly couldn't write or hack one ! That seems to be yet up an out there in the realm of the uber-geek. Right now I'm using the WACOM Medium Bamboo Fun tablet. One of the programmable buttons shown instantly switches you between applications, so that's what I currently u
