  1. This tutorial is still helpful to me, though it is almost six years old. If I may, I'd like to point out some advancements that have been made in more recent times. There is a certain photo editing software (that isn't Paint.NET... yet) that has intelligent upsampling with its Preserve Details feature. Before this feature's release, the software had the ability to upsample and fill in the missing pixels without scaling down the image size. However it relied on the bicubic smoother, which actually made the edges and the image on a whole too soft (rather than being super sharp and pixel-y).
  2. I actually like how that turned out, actually. Maybe you used negation on the cloud effects instead of the layer? Either way, it turned out pretty cool. Try the plugin: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=25180 The plugin makes life much easier. This is what I was able to do with the plugin: Before, I couldn't get a hollow effect with the text. The plugin made life much easier.
  3. I would love to replicate that effect. I'm trying, but the hint you've provided still leaves me a bit puzzled. Would you be willing to PM me with full instructions on how you managed that? I mean, did you use gray to achieve the translucent wisps as well? The fire in the eyes is spectacularly done as well. This is amazing. As far as the plugin itself, thank you so much for creating it! It has greatly simplified the various fire effects I have been trying out for text, not to mention the various other effects that can come from it. I think it would be nice if it had an slider for the curve RG
  4. Hint: Use dents Based on this hint, I have come up with these: I'm still playing around with all of the different effects I have available. I haven't been able to get the inside of the text to look more... hollow. Thank you! Hopefully this plugin will enable me to get the desired result (i.e. the hollow-like effect in the first image in this thread).
  5. I am using Windows XP SP2. I didn't know there was a SP3... until I saw this thread. I am reluctant to upgrade, however. Microsoft's newer products seem lower in quality on a whole, ranging from their Office Suite to their new operating system.
  6. I agree. I also had Googled it and consulted the help topic... the wording of the help topic is misleading. Had I not come across this thread, I would have uninstalled this program and discontinued my years of use of Paint.NET. I am glad that budu returned and cleared up the ambiguous wording of the document.
  7. Is this plugin meant to function with Paint.NET v3.22? When I try to use it, I get these error details: File: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\Outline Object.dll Effect Name: pyrochild.effects.outlineobject.OutlineObject Full error message: System.MissingMethodException: Method not found: 'Int32 PaintDotNet.ColorBgra.ToOpaqueInt32(PaintDotNet.ColorBgra)'. at pyrochild.effects.outlineobject.OutlineObject.OnCreatePropertyCollection() at PaintDotNet.Effects.PropertyBasedEffect.CreateConfigDialog() at PaintDotNet.Menus.EffectMenuBase.RunEffect(Type effectType) I am us
