  1. The cleanest way of changing the color would be to use an alpha mask to separate the outline from the object. Then use Silhouette Plus to change the outlines color to Orange and to reset the color of the object, then merge the outline and the object back together.
  2. Who said I payed for that shovelware? It's a family Wii. I payed for a good bit of the DS games, and I'll admit to losing money there, but in the long run I'd rather have a new 360 capable of playing my favorite games then a ton of my favorite games only available for a broken console.
  3. So I have $160 in GameStop credit by ridding myself of all my shovel ware using the 3 Games = extra 10$ deal. Now, I just have to wait for GameStop to have some slim 360's in stock so I can get an extra $150 for my first gen Xbox 360. Yup, a ton of Wii and DS shovelware plus a half broken Xbok is netting me a free slim. All I have to do is pay tax.
  4. He's probably looking for a PDF because he needs it in a vector file format. My suggestion is too save the PDN as a PNG image file, then upload it too VectorMagic to trace the PNG to a vector. The downside is that if your image is overly complex or uses gradients, you are sure to lose quality
  5. My first iOS 4 install was jailbroken to allow multitasking and backgrounds, but that was too painful. I though just 'downgrading' to a clean 4.0 install would be better, but it really isn't. I think I might join you, Pyrochild: Not only did the 3.0+ series run fine on my device, but Backgrounder also seems more natural in comparison at this point.
  6. I am hating the iOS 4 update. My iDevice (iPod Touch 2G) has become extremely sluggish, sometimes crawling to halt on basic apps such as Settings. Additionally, it now seems to have a heating issue and the music playback functionality is starting to lag.
  7. Here is an awesome list that Paint.NET tops: http://lifehacker.com/5567174/top-10-windows-applications-that-should-be-on-macs
  8. Effective immediately, Simon Brown is the competition host for the Weekly Skinning Competition until further notice.
  9. Go vote in the WSC thread. By the way, I've been gone for quite a while. I imagine that I'll continue to be gone. If any of you need me for any reason, email address: Mike.Ryan52[at]gmail.com and my AIM s/n is PDNxMikeR . Read the WSC discussion thread for why.
  10. My apologies folks, but I've departed the forums for a good, long while. Family issues, plus finals, plus lack of job = no Paint.NET time or related matters. I'll put up a poll tonight, let the poll run its cycle, archive the competition, and then revive once I'm back for good. Again, sorry for the lengthy delay. Hard times are difficult.
  11. A poll will be created when there are five or more entries
  12. Even if it was one in a billion (life on another planet), then chances would say there is at least another planet.
  13. One entry?! Come on guys, lets get skinning!
  14. That's because it isn't edited. Steve Wozniak wrote a guest post on Gizmodo (I think, could've been Lifehacker) and that was the image accompanying.
  15. Hahaha! This brightened up my day, to say the least: For those unfamiliar, that is Steve Wozniak - cofounder of Apple - in response to the Gray Powell / iPhone Prototype debacle.
  16. When Opera 9.6 was first coming out, Google Chrome wasn't around to set the bar. It has only been within the last year or so that there has been such a race for quality, quick JavaScript engines.
  17. That's because Opera 10.5 - for all of its greatness - is plagued with faults. A lot of the features in about:config don't do much or what they are labeled as, and customization is a bit more difficult. The reason? It was rushed to make it onto the European browser ballot. I have faith that it'll be patched up. I have a lot of faith in Opera.
  18. I really like "What inspires you?". That is my choice for the next SotW
  19. THanks! Congrats to the runner ups, yall's (I am so southern) were great! I think I've won nearly every SotW I've participated in. :? Anyways, I'll think up a theme quick. Any suggestions?
  20. I must be missing something, but when does the poll end?
  21. ACTUALLY, the easiest way is to click on the Post Number at the top right of each post. This'll produce a link similar to this: Post Above Me
  22. Very interesting, abstract, out of the box, and uniquely colorful entry, csm725! I like 'em. Just don't be afraid when I come knockin' in with an entry of my own!
  23. This was not intentional. The guy got drunk, lost his prototype iPhone at bar (which was sneakily disguised in a 3GS case), then Gizmodo paid $5,000 for it. Apple is writhing mad, with Cease and Desist letters and a formal letter saying "We want our phone back". The guy will get fired, no doubt.
  24. Oh, yeah that is allowed. Just make sure in your submission you note that you used a screen shot for stock.
