  1. Are you trying to create the scene from scratch, or do you have a photo you wish to enhance? If the latter, try this plugin: Sparkle For information on how to use and install plugins: Click here
  2. Yes please! I would actually prefer a load-all (into the dropdown list) from a specific area/folder/textfile. Thus all my matrices would be loaded and I could pick & choose from the dropdown list - rather than hunting and loading a specific one from (say) a folder.
  3. It looks similar to the Escher/Droste effect (plugin) http://www.getpaint.net/search.html search term "Escher" or "Droste"
  4. I think Simon meant Ctrl+Shift+X :wink: This combination clips the image/canvas to the current selection size. So if you select your "scratch" area, then invert the selection with Ctrl-I and then hit Ctrl+Shift+X it will resize back to the original dimension.
  5. I'm not sure that you can save a multi-layer *.TIFF. This post has the lowdown on the image types, and what is saved along with them: viewtopic.php?p=216729#p216729. According to Myrddin, saving from PDN as a *.TIFF does not retain the layer information. At the bottom of the above post there is mention of a Photoshop file plugin which would allow you to save the image as a *.psd. Would that be of any use?
  6. The grey checkerboard indicates transparency :wink: So if you can see the checkerboard, then that part of an image is transparent. Some image types support transparency, and some don't. So the format you choose when saving may allow you to take the transparency with your image (like a *.GIF image). Check this link out for more info: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=24593&start=0
  7. Try the rounded rectangle plugin by Tim!: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=29439 This plugin gives you loads of options.
  8. So I'll just cross you off the potential list of beta-testers for the backfilling plugin shall I? Shame Actually I have been working on a plugin to do backfilling (steps 18-26), and the initial right move (step 17). Anyone wanting to give it a run through should PM me.
  9. I'll bet this is it to do with your blog code and not your image. Use CSS to turn the image border off - like you did for your banner. In fact it's not a bad idea to turn all your images' border off with a global CSS statement like this: img { border-style: none; }
  10. If you're looking to begin coding effects, the answers provided by BoltBait to this thread are a particularly good place to begin: viewtopic.php?p=261395#p261395
  11. I believe that the intent was to change the name from Jeremy to Chunky? First you're going to have to erase "Jeremy" or overlay that part of the image with something else. On a new layer :AddNewLayer:, place a large rounded (filled) rectangle in a similar color to the "Jeremy" surroundings + repeated blurs : :GaussianBlur: or even glow :Glow: might just do the trick. Second you're going to have to find a large outlined font that you like (check out http://www.dafont.com). Install the font (viewtopic.php?p=23856#p23856), then restart Paint.NET. On a new layer :AddNewLayer:(above the one from the first step), use the text tool to write the name in place using your new font. Now you can follow pophiri's technique to import the images into the center of each letter.
  12. There are stacks of tutorials in that section of this forum: viewforum.php?f=29
  13. Have you seen this tutorial? Polaroid Collage
  14. I have tried three times to get them to remove my plugins, but their automated contact form won't accept my email address. I shall have to try another method...., Nice looking, yes, but it's laid out using tables, ugh!
  15. There is always the PM button (Private Message). This allows you to contact the plugin Author directly. But there is a word of caution: be sure you have read through the thread pertaining to the plugin to make sure you're not rehashing a known problem. Another thought on this issue: Wouldn't your inquiry (and solution) benefit others? I believe that this is one of the strengths of the forum.
  16. It's unecessary to check every time. Just click the "view plugin errors" when you update the version of PDN or download a new plugin. If you encounter a crash when using a plugin, then check for an update (this shouldn't happen too often though). More on this can be found here: http://blog.getpaint.net/2007/10/31/pai ... or-plugins Plugins are downloaded by thousands of users. I'm simply not going to track a huge list of downloaders in order to tell them to update. Sorry.
  17. Effect Plugins reside in the Paint.NET/Effects folder. Filetypes (those plugins that deal with what types of files can be saved & loaded) reside in the Paint.NET/FileTypes folder. Both of these folders should be present after you install PDN.
  18. You're welcome! Your picture doesn't look "newbie" to me! BTW You can post your images in the Pictorium (where you can even create your own thread for stuff you've done).
  19. Periodically hit the PREVIEW button when typing long missives :wink:
  20. I have a feeling I saw that file in a release by KrisVDM - but I think it was in a source folder so it shouldn't be "found" by most users. My humblest apologies to KrisVDM if I am mistaken here.
  21. Aww, shucks The process has fascinated me for a long time too. I read up on the technique on wiki and then started playing. I now believe that the vacant 3D expression is permanently etched on my face! The only thing I haven't been able to reproduce is the "staggering" of a single element with say the left-hand-side being nearer than the right-hand-side. I believe that this is down the the use of pixels, when I really need to step an element by half or quarter of a pixel. (all hugs accepted & reciprocated)
  22. Try this over the built-in forum search: http://www.getpaint.net/search.html Search term "installing fonts" :wink:
  23. ....not forgetting that the Function keys F5 through F8 toggle the visibility of the windows on and off. Specifically: F5 Tools F6 History F7 Layers F8 Color For more on the Windows menu: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/WindowMenu.html Oh and PhenomeMama, you might want to change the title of your original post. It's not very descriptive of your inquiry and breaks rule #6 (thread titles must be descriptive) viewtopic.php?f=20&t=3446. hint: click the EDIT button in your original post.
  24. I'm a little late with this suggestion :oops: , but have a look at the camera lens distortion correction plugin: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=21624
  25. Hobbiton. For that LOTR/medieval look without being unreadable.
