  1. You are all so famous, I just felt like I had to restore equilibrium...!

    and BarbieQ, to be honest you seem to have gained momentum while I was away, so I can't say I really know you, but judging from the amount of posts I see you making, you can definitively consider yourself e-famous!

  2. Hi,

    I'm not entirely positive this is the exact problem, but based on the information above, please check the following:

    1. Open the Start Menu (windows menu)
    2. Click on 'Run'
    3. Type in 'msconfig'
    4. Click on the 'services' tab
    5. Sort by name
    6. Look for 'Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)'
    7. Make sure it's ticked
    8. Press Okay and reboot
    9. Try printing

    Other than that, make sure you have the latest version of Paint.NET, and run it with administrative rights (Windows might be blocking PDN's attempt to start the service?).

  3. We'll need a bit more background to help you out. If you can, post a sample picture as an example of what you're working with.

    It depends really on what you're trying to achieve, but off the top of my head, these would be effects to try:

    • Noise removal
    • Soften Portrait
    • Basic Adjustments
    • Sharpen+
    • Shadow/Highlight Recovery (similar to Basic Adjustements)
    • Red Eye Removal / Quick Fix
    • Everything in 'Adjustements' drop down.

  4. My computer is located in a dark basement. At night, the screen's the only lightsource around, and flies love to gather on it. Now my screen is covered in fly blood.

    My question is, does the flies' blood not appearing in my screenshots prove those are vampire flies?

  5. hey people!

    Sorry the competition's delay is in part my own, I've also been quite busy!

    I have to say, I'm happy to see the response to the theme is as of yet enthusiastic, it was probably one of the toughest decision of my life!

    I'm really looking forward to seeing your entries, and good luck to all. Also I would like to point out that this competition should be fair(er) because chrisco denied my request to have the votes rigged in favour of the first user to submit a picture of a shrubbery.

  6. Thank you for the feedback! You can find more variations in my gallery, located HERE

    @Kaddl89: Good result! Don't forget to add some noise so it looks like a real fabric, and I suggest making all images twice as large as your result will be, in order to ensure a high quality and details.
