  1. There are stacks of tutorials in that section of this forum: viewforum.php?f=29
  2. Have you seen this tutorial? Polaroid Collage
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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: ... 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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).
  8. Periodically hit the PREVIEW button when typing long missives :wink:
  9. 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.
  10. 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)
  11. Try this over the built-in forum search: Search term "installing fonts" :wink:
  12. ....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: 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.
  13. 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
  14. Hobbiton. For that LOTR/medieval look without being unreadable.
  15. Probably the easiest option is the clone stamp tool. This tool takes a little piece of the image nearby and "stamps" it over the piece you don't want. The theory is that the fence would be covered by bits of the nearby background (shrubbery or whatever). There are limits of course. The larger the area you're covering, the more obvious it will be. Hopefully your fence is a wire-link and not a brick one To find out more: and the search term should be "clone stamp"
  16. There is also the Visual Studio plugin template (thanks to Sepcot) : viewtopic.php?f=27&t=2618. If you're starting out it's an invaluable tool.
  17. You're welcome! Don't forget that Paint.Net can access any TrueType font you have installed on your system. You can find loads more fonts at sites like if you're looking for that "special touch" to add to your logo.
  18. @ soul41: I really like the colored abstract more than the "electric" sig you presently have. I've been unable to do a decent abstract so will take a look at the tutorial you mentioned. I guess your present sig is a tad too symmetrical for my liking. @ Kemaru: I can't say I was wow'd with your sig initially. Until I realized it is a "double" image. It's a disk and a stylized dog/fierce-thing-with-teeth. Now that's different, and that's not a bad thing either. I like it more and more!
  19. 1. Create a new layer with this icon in the layers window: :AddNewLayer: 2. Make sure this layer is on top of all the others with the layer up/down arrows in the same window. 3. Click on the text tool icon (in the toolbar) 4. Click on your image where you want the text to appear and begin typing. 5. Alter the font, size & other settings by changing the font name, size, etc..., in the text tool bar (should be just under Image & Layers menus). oh and..., 6. Alter your post title so it reflects more accurately your inquiry - and do it quickly before someone sees!
  20. Try deleting any color surrounding the text so that the text is surrounded by transparency. The glow effect is rather subtle, more like an aura or halo. Try applying it more than once to boost the effect. To view the effect, insert a contrasting colored layer immediately below the text before applying glow.
  21. Did the built in glow not work? Glow: viewtopic.php?p=4700#p4700
  22. I just may be a bit slow this morning (it happens) but I'm not getting the idea here. Are we talking about the shadow in the main window? I just don't get what anderpainter means with "puts around all images". I've never had a problem with how PDN presents images, and certainly not had a problem identifying borders.
  23. Aha - Sobel filters? Brilliant! Downloading in 3....2....1
  24. So does this plugin allow for image transformations of this nature: ?
  25. How about this technique: viewtopic.php?p=242249#p242249 :?:
