  1. If you look in the "Effects" menu, under "Photo" there is a "Red Eye Removal" effect.
  2. It sounds to me like you need an administrator password to delete things on your computer. Am I right in assuming you're trying to delete the drop shadow .dll? Paint.net itself has no password requirements.
  3. Re: the checkered background: The checkered backgorund indicates a transparent area. If you put the pint image in a new layer over a background, the background will show through wherever the checkered area was.
  4. Maybe the various contest threads (sig of the week, monthly skinning, etc.) should also be put in the new pictorium?
  5. The downside of the Conditional Hue/Sat UI is that you can't select shades (black/white/gray). For that reason I prefer the current UI. Great plugin.
  6. What you need to do is go through the tutorials section and find some tutorials for what you need to do. Even if you can't find a tutorial that does exactly what you want, you can almost always find one that you can adapt a little bit it get the result you're looking for. Here are some tutorials that you might be interested in: This one will show you how to make a glossy surface various chrome tutorials
  7. Me too. I like being able to scroll through the pages of images instead of having to go through multiple threads. Oh well. For the individual user threads, it would be nice if it could show them with the most recent post first. Otherwise whenever someone goes to a users thread, we'll always see their oldest stuff first and may never make it to see the newer (and better) work lower in the thread.
  8. The setting in the layer properties is called Opacity. Less opacity = more transparency
  9. Turn it upside down and you have an awesome icicle. A simple Halloween sig. I'm not entirely happy with the eyes - I want them to be more, well, "creepy" and maybe a little more subtle. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  10. Ctrl-Y is re-do. This is standard for some windows programs.
  11. I took a look at some of your photos Domesticfix. Wow, they're fantastic.
  12. I don't know about a tutorial, but to make it easy there's a plugin to add water to your image. http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2911 Just install this plugin (see the top of the plugin forum for instructions) and use it to quickly add reflected water and ripples to your picture.
  13. And if you want to rotate the selection, just select the Move Selection tool (after you have a selection), then RIGHT-click and drag the mouse. This will let you free rotate it.
  14. This is a grayscale pallet I made for when I'm working in black and white. The lightness values go up by about 3/100 for each step, which is where I can see a difference between the shades.
  15. http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=5805&hilit=explosion BOOM! Found this with a simple search
  16. You need to select Window > Reset Window Locations That will make all of your windows visible again. (Tools and Colors)
  17. Sine Waves is a plugin that can be found here: http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=5663 (Put the .dll you get there in the Program Files > Paint.NET > Effects folder and re-start Paint.NET to install the plugin). I used it with these settings: Amplitude: 5 Horizontal period: 0 Vertical period: 1 Angle of start: 0 Anti-alias: 2 You should play around with the "Amplitude" and "Angle of start" for the sand. When you're using motion blur, make sure the "centered" checkbox is un-checked to make it go in one direction. When using blurs, it will get less detailed, but I just added more noise to the section I blurred and it went right back to the sandy look it had before. (Blur steps usually went: Blur -> Add Noise -> Blur -> Add Noise)
  18. Is this sort of what you're looking for? I got this by doing various iterations of :AddNoise: Add noise and :MotionBlur: Motion Blur, plus a Sine Waves There was a little bit of Splinter and Clone stamp to clean things up a bit too. Let me know if you need some more detail. I'm sure with a little work, you could come up with something much better than this.
  19. There's a more precise way, but it's more complicated and takes longer. The Alpha Mask plugin: http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=2178 And a tutorial on how to use it: http://cmdsketchpad.com/tutorial.php?tutid=3
  20. If, for some reason, you have to try to do this in MS Paint, you could switch the background colour to black and the option for selection background to transparent. This icon: That would let you put in the top image, but would not get rid of the black in the bottom one. You are MUCH better off using Paint.NET though.
  21. Do you mean a black edge around the whole picture? Some image viewers put a black border around images, just to show you where the edges of the image are. This is not part of the actual picture. Try opening it in a web browser - do you still see the boundary? (If you have it, you could also try MS Office Picture Manager, it does not show the edges of the image with a border). If this is not the answer, can you post a Print Screen of your screen showing the black boundary?
