  1. There is also this plugin, which does shadows like on google maps: viewtopic.php?p=13957#p13957 Note the part where it says: That means that the part ot the image you wish to have a shadow should be the only thing on the layer. And don't forget that the shadowing process can be destructive, so duplicate the layer, and apply shadow the bottom of the two layers.
  2. No you're absolutely right Ash. I got it wrong about where the transparency should be (secondary color and not transparent mode) :oops: Embarassment is the price I pay for trusting my memory when I don't have PDN in front of me. :wink:
  3. Thanks for the pictures MJW, and for the plugin!
  4. Eyes a bit like this? viewtopic.php?p=223439#p223439 Try a transparent gradient ( :AlphaChannel: not :AllColorChannels:) on a new layer. Use the radial gradient option and click the mouse over the eye centre. Drag the mouse to control the size.
  5. Ok, I think I got that. How about posting a picture so we can see it in action?
  6. XP SP2 and not SP3 because I'm on a very slow rural dial-up connection. I do have auto-update turned on, so it's possible that SP3 is being drip fed to me. At 70mb it may take a while...., [You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to get 3.5 NET Framework installed in these circumstances. But that's another issue...,] This weekend may change things as I'm going to try download a number of items (at a different location & speed). SP3 and 3.5 NET included. If they can be slapped onto a DVD rather than installed from a bootstrapper then I'm good-to-go!
  7. There are hundreds of fonts on Here's a tutorial on how to install them:
  8. 1. (from memory) Scale, roughness, blend mode & reseed [edit] 2. No. Pens & pencils are for drawing not selecting. Use the Magic Wand to select irregular areas (tolerance will affect the selection area based on similar/dissimilar colors), the Ellipse and Rectangle selection tools select more regular areas. [/edit] 3. Blend modes change the result of pixels when overlaid. Check this link: 4. Search for the "Primary Color Difference to Alpha" plugin. 5. Alpha = transparency amount!. The above link also explains this. 6. Boxes, spheres and cylinders. All customizable to your hearts content. 7. There are a number of fractal effects, mandelbrot, julia and (memory failure - dang, I thought I had another one...). This link shows where to find them (and clouds) Section for PDN art? Sure is, we call the the Pictorium, and it's part of this forum.
  9. Great answer! The borders do have to be rectangular, but the image inside the borders does not. Try selecting the image you want to rotate and hit the Move tool, now holding the right mouse button down and moving the mouse rotates the image any amount.
  10. If it does it's not telling me. I tried several search strings, but only get numerous links to the free download. I did purchase an APC mag which touted the 3.5 framework on its cover DVD, only to find that it's just the bootstrapper exe. I was disappointed! I will keep searching....,
  11. In a similar vein, anyone know where I can find .NET 3.5 on a DVD? Its waaaay too big for me to download at my excruciating 4kb/s
  12. Type something in Latin. Always looks and sounds cooler. Old English also has enough echoes to modern English to convey meaning (got this idea from the making of Beowulf - DVD).
  13. F5 to F8 toggle the four windows on and off. The "four fingered salute" therefore clears your screen of all the windows, and the same salute brings them back again.
  14. I'm not sure I'm getting what you're after. You want to make part of your image transparent, but keep the image? What would show through if you were to make a part transparent? Do you have a background you'd like to show through? Could you show us a picture & walk me through what you want to achieve? Oh, and it's continuous :wink: If the wand or fill is bleeding into surrounding areas, lower the threshold percentage and it will behave nicer. A zero tolerance means it will only fill/select the color of the pixel you click on.
  15. Transparency is treated like that because its a lack of color. Totally transparent is thus a total lack of color. If you want a transparent area to behave like a color, just fill the transparent area with some contrasting color, do the operation you wish and then delete the color when finished. Tip: the magic wand might be useful to select the coloured area you wish to delete. Welcome to the forum!
  16. View your post & hit the Edit button. Then you'll be able to type in a descriptive title.
  17. When you create a new image the canvas defaults to white. So what you need to do is either select & delete the white on the layer, or deselect the white layer visibility (or delete the layer altogether) and then create a new one for your text (creating a new layer defaults to transparent). Its a great habit to get into to create a new layer for your text. You get the transparency without thinking about it and that makes moving or retyping text a breeze.
  18. 1. open both images as separate layers in PDN 2. Expand the canvas enough so you can align the images over each other correctly (use the move tool ) 3. Select one layer and apply the Conditional Hue & Saturation plugin until the tones match the other layer. If you don't get it right, UNDO the step & try again. 4. if CH&S dosen't help try BoltBaits Color Balance plugin - again on just one layer so you have the other for comparison. Good luck!
  19. There is a localization (read: language) thread. It has all the info you need to create a new language pack for PDN. Here's the link: Localization
  20. Two tutorials leap to mind: Brushed Metal with Shine and Color and Chrome 101 a community tutorial. Are these the tutorials you worked through?
  21. There is a tutorial that you might find useful: Polaroid Collage.
  22. If spacing is critical I'd recommend hard coding the font and size, but you'd need therefore to make the font a generic one so that you don't have to worry about it not being found on the users machine. Google "web safe fonts" for a list :wink: The location of the text is set by the last two variables in the g.DrawString call, selection.Top and selection.Left in the above example.
  23. It looks like the Red Eye Reduction plugin is not going to help. Here's what Tanel (plugin author) had to say: It's not that simple, the eyeshine phenomenon has quite different character color wise. I couldn't even find any good PS tutorial for that, other than ones suggesting to paint it over.I would say it is doable but should be a separate plugin. This one must keep UI as light as possible IMO. So I still feel that Conditional Hue & Saturation is the way to go.
