  1. If rendering a large image is a problem, open a small 'work' image and run Rotate/Zoom on that in order to hit the 'reset'.
  2. Each of the controls have a reset button. Look for the blue swoosh arrow to the right of the control. Clicking the button will reset the control to it's default value.
  3. Hello & welcome Toast The recoloring tool will help. Here's the link to the documentation: https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/RecolorTool.html Here's how to use it... 1. Set Primary color to the color you want to end up with. 2. Use color picker tool + right click on your image to select the color you want to replace. This color will be installed as the Secondary color (which is why you used the right mouse button). 3. In the Toolbar, set the sampling mode to Sampling: Secondary Color 3. Adjust the brush width to something just wider than the line you want to recolor. 4. Wind the tolerance down to around 20%. 5. Carefully trace over the line using the mouse with the left button held down.
  4. You are trying to install an older version. Go here and grab a copy of 4.2.8 If that too fails to install, try working through the guide (#4 to #9) listed here: Don't be tempted to skip steps. Complete them in sequence before moving on to the next one.
  5. paint.net 4.2 - released on July 13th, 2019This is a big update that focus on adding HEIC file format support, fixing performance with very large images, and upgrading and modernizing the functionality of many existing file types (JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, and TIFF). .... New: Support for loading and saving HEIC images (Windows 10 v1809+ and codec installation is required). Please note that the "Quality" slider when saving is limited to a value of 90 (out of 100) while Microsoft investigates and fixes a crash in their codec. Source: https://www.getpaint.net/roadmap.html
  6. Try this: Select the region you want to enhance Apply Effects > Noise > Median at the following settings You can apply Median a second time (Ctrl + F) if you want even more enhancement.... Applying an instance of Sharpen with a high setting after Median makes it pop a little more IMO. Pretty cool yes? BTW your image takes me back to the days I programmed Motorola 68000 just for fun! bne = branch if not equal. jmp = jump aka Goto!
  7. Any of these provide a clue? https://defkey.com/what-means/ctrl-shift-x
  8. Just to clarify: you're pressing the Ctrl key, Shift key and the X key simultaneously? They need to be pressed at the same time, not sequentially. Can you swap out your keyboard to confirm it is not a hardware issue?
  9. Here's the answer.... ^^ this has been said many, many times. To say nobody cares about it is rude and insulting.
  10. The second (Axis-2) controls the rotation you want to play with Here's a little demo I threw together. The frames are 15 degrees apart, which looks awfully choppy. I rendered each from a common 'source' frame. The tilting axis was created later with the outer ring of rotate/zoom. Once you do the first layer, repeat on each other layer with the same settings.
  11. Hi @Dundorg Welcome to the forum Have you checked out the Shape3D plugin? It has a cylindrical projection and texture mapping options that I'm sure gives you the ability to render to the inside of the projection as well. The trick is to place the three objects on a transparent layer. Space them apart and locate them along the canvas 'equator' before running the plugin. One of the Axis rotations will easily spin the satellites around the equator. They are not going to always be "forward facing" using this technique, however I think you might like the effect of them being 'side on' at the left and right extremes of the arc. If you render to successive layers you can later rotate them to give all layers an angle of inclination.
  12. They are hardly countless, and each one makes the program better. I love the fact that PDN is being developed so visibly. It leaves you in no doubt that the developer is regularly improving PDN for all of us.
  13. ^ that looks really cool @LWChris White circles on transparent layers and some creative use of dents on the inner edge of the circles.
  14. Oooh. I like this. It will make creating things like this easier
  15. December Update Three new plugins this month, including a couple of Xhin-style polar-y ones and a new plugin from an old friend. Enjoy Coordinate Tracer Plotting Wither Plot points on an image by rendering crosshairs & coordinates to the canvas. Galaxy Transformation Xhin Spirals an image inwards in a deep galaxy/black hole sort of way. Can function like Polar Inversion plugin with more options. Self Spiral Xhin Twists the entire image around itself and reflects it outwards. It's the love-child of the Droste and Polar Inversion effects!
  16. Please keep me appraised of these changes so can update the Plugin Index. Thanks!
  17. Hi Evan - Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear you're having trouble. Unfortunately I'm not able to duplicate this on my setup. Can you please post your system diagnostics? Go to Settings > Diagnostics > Copy to clipboard & paste the contents of the clipboard into a new post here.
  18. You know users are going to post here because they dragged their dialog off the screen & can't get it back ðŸĪŠ
  19. Don't bamboozle me too much with technical lingo ... but why so ? @BoltBait answered this one quite recently.... https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/115410-effect-dialog-window-in-center-of-screen-resolved/?do=findComment&comment=564333 Before anyone says "that never happens..." I recall a user having trouble with the Shape3D, because S3D places the effect dialog on the second monitor (if there is one). If you turn your second monitor off - poof! No dialog! Yet PDN appears to be running fine on the first monitor.
  20. Another neat feature of Ctrl + Shift + C is that it uses the entire canvas if no selection is active. Hence no need to pre-empt the combo with Ctrl + A (select all)
  21. Programmatically, opening in the center of the screen is the safest place to put a dialog. Just sayin' That's not how this forum works. You don't get to decide what happens and what doesn't. Everyone who has an opinion is free to post their thoughts. Now, we can have a discussion about dialog placement, OR we can note your efforts to strong arm Rick into doing what you want, and lock the thread.
