  1. I'm trying to plot something simple using Equations: I write x*(x-2) However, even scaling the x-axis to 500 and y to 20, I can't see both roots. If I try manually scaling (writing A*x*(x-2), in which A is some scaling constant) it still doesn't do the job. How do I use the width/height command?
  2. It doesn`t work for me at all. Well, at home I got PDN 3.1, but here it is only 3.08. Does that make any difference? When I change the actual files, this is what appears: And when I order it o Reapir, it show this: Help?
  3. That was a great story. You should work with writing, not image editing.
  4. Has it? Oh, sorry... I didn't see... u.u No, I haven't, even though I've herad it's pretty good... maybe I'll take at look at it. Thanks.
  5. OK, I know this isn't something simple to be done, and also that it needs render changes to work, but I'm requesting advanced Bézier Curves, that allow more than just 4 reference points. Is it possible to be done in Paint.NET? I know it can't be done by any plugins, but with chnages in the program's code... and I tryed looking for it in the Popular Feature Requests page, but I found nothing. It is not essencial, I know, as I can do a more complicated curve with just two normal ones. But anyways, it would be very useful. Nevertheless, would it be too heavy? Would it be slow, i it existed?
  6. Oh, I remember it clearly. I was desperatly looking for Photoshop tutorials, Painter, Illustrator, whatever I could use to paint my drawings in the PC, but I was just too stupid to use PS. I had also downloaded many others, such as the GIMP, Artweaver... one my fired came to me on MSN and said "hey, I found you a great program you can use" and he linked me to http://www.baixaki.com.br (it litterally means "Downloadhere.com.br", a very nice program distributing site. I read PDN description and loved it, so I got it. v.2.5, I guess. I didn't know there was a forum ( I used to hate forums), but when I discovered the plugins and the tutorials, wow. The first tutorial I read was how to make a lighstaber xD. And the first plugin was BoltBait's Feather. Thanks for existing, guys. And now, here I am. TO the future with PDN
  7. Oh, yeah, about cleaning the image... the Contrast Adjustment, as well as the Curves and the Level, are perfect for adjusting noise problems, excessive ink spots, or whatever... of course, using the brush/line tool to redo parts is fundamental. And I would recommend you to use a tablet, it's easier than the mouse.
  8. Well, yeah. The tutorial I did especially focuses on coloring. Anyway, do you know Photoshop's vector Tool? People who draw with PS always use it to redo lineart. Of course, if you want to redo lineart in Paint.NET, you have some choices: Draw it again in a new layer. I recommend making the original lineart less opaque to be able to se what you're doing better. I did this one (http://takemangaka.deviantart.com/art/B ... l-62644990) using that method. Not recommended though. Takes too long to finish. You could try using the Brightness/Contrast, Pencil Sketch, Ink Sketch, Curves and Levels to work the image strenght. Also, the Erode/Dilate Effect can make the outline thicker or thiner, it is really useful for me.
  9. I just didn't get one thing. It basically would disconsider some parts of the image, or would it consider them, normally resize some of them, while keeping the other ones normal? Something like that Real/Toy Car Conversion?
  10. Hm... what did I like to do in junior school? Well, if I were the teacher, I would surely try - I said tray - to teach the children to make fun of their mates' faces. The Conditional Hue/Saturation or even the Hue/Saturation is pretty good for this, as it will make hair purple, skin blue and shirts glowing... They may like it. What elese... messing around with common effects like Gaussian Blur, Zoom Blur, Glow and the magc wand... it doesn't have to be great, as long as it's fun!
  11. This plugin is probably between my 5 favourites. The others are: - Strip Primary Color - Filtered Black and White - Conditional hue/Saturation - Transparency Amazing job
  12. I second Pyro's request. Anyway, I guess it's the simplicity too... the only program ever I was able to find and start working right away with no difficulties at all.
  13. "Detailed" like what? Doesn't it have anything to do with feathering the selected object or I am misunderstanding?
  14. Well, I guess that, for that, you could simply do something like this: 1) select the desired object 2) paste it in a new layer and delete the original one. 3) Use "unfocus" in the old layer. It'll make everything but the selected object unfocused.
  15. Well, I don`t know. When I'm drawing, whenever I finsih the CG the image is all sharp. I use, then, a combination of resizing so it'll become smooth. Bicubic is my option in resizing, as it just amplifies without expanding anything. I strongly suggest you experiment the different resizing methods.
