  1. Wow, it's amazing, and funny, how all you guys are making such a huge deal over one small tutorial. Whatever, I'm done. Mission accomplished for you guys I guess.
  2. I didn't mean that as in they're not any good. I meant that many text effect tuts on here are old, as in date started.
  3. First of all, what automatically makes you think that someone who's new to these support forums are automatically noobs? New members can be a genius with Paint.Net for all you know. Maybe they just decided to share a nice little effect on here because they just felt like it. Like I said, and I still stand behind it, I don't see anything wrong with adding another "Simple" tutorial to these forums. They can use some new tutorials. The majority of them are pretty old/outdated if you ask me. Seriously though, what harm does it do? It's well written, easy to follow and well-organized. Damn, no wonder I don't see many new tutorials around here. People are afraid of negative feedback and/or having their topics closed for simply having a "similar" effect from other tutorials. So sad...
  4. Too simple? Personally, I don't see anything wrong with posting a simple tutorial. There are a lot of newbies out there that would benefit from a simple tutorial like this. Second, I haven't seen a tutorial with this exact text effect. If it's been done many times before, can you provide us with the links to those tutorials that have the exact same text effect as this tutorial?
  5. ventor1, there are a couple of questions concerning some of the steps I'd like to ask if I may. In step 7 you say: Isn't it rather "do steps 3 to 6 again on this new layer"? In step 10 you say: I set my red to 40 and my yellow to 40 as well, but I got a purple instead of the golden-like color you have in the image below step 10. It's not until I move the yellow down to minus 100 when it starts getting that golden color. Perhaps I missed something in the previous steps, I'm not certain. Can you please verify this for me before I continue with the rest of the tut? Again, this could just be me missing something, I just want to be sure. Thanks in advance.
  6. You're right, there are a lot of fire font tuts on here, but IMHO this is by far the best and most realistic fire text effect tut I've seen for Paint.Net. Awesome work and a +1 ventor1. I hope they don't delete/close it since it's much more different than the others I've seen on here. I'm going to go try this myself now. Thanks for sharing this ventor1.
  7. I agree that jim should've at least sent you a PM about it, but you have to admit that this rewritten tut is better detailed/explained for newbies to understand. I'm sure he wasn't trying to be malicious about it.
  8. I finally finished watching the end of LOST a few weeks ago.....I'm not going to ruin it for you, but I did not like the way it ended on the last 2 hour episode. I did like the show in general all the way from the beginning, but when I saw the final episode, I was a tab disappointed. My lady liked it, so it could just be me, but I just felt that particular ending was boring and made me feel I wasted my time watching it from the beginning. Again, that's just me.
  9. I've been watching WEEDS and LOST on Netflix. I'm on season 6 of LOST, which is the final season. Not a bad show if you watch it carefully. I watched up to season 5 on WEEDS, which is as far as Netflix will show us. I guess I will have to wait until they feature season 6.
  10. When I first started off with Netflix a few years ago, I had the streaming + 1 DVD which was for about $9.00 or so. Then when they came out with all this BS, I changed my plan to just streaming on my computer weeks before the change. If I kept the same plan, I would've ended up paying around $16.00, almost twice for the same thing. One bill for the streaming and another for the 1 DVD. Plus they tried to make it seem as if we were saving money with this new plan, when in fact they were the one's saving money while throwing us under the bus. Now that they realized how many members they already lost and many more are threatening to leave, they're trying to lure some back by saying they're not separating the two services after all and they're adding more movies and whatnot? I like the idea of more streaming movie choices, but they have a ways to go if they want to win old members back.
  11. Plus, they try to make us forget all the mess they made by making things sound "awesome" by adding this to our e-mails: ....Respectfully?? They value us??...yea right
  12. Sorry for the noob question, but I'm a bit stuck on step 8 where it says "Invert the colors of the TextMask layer so it is white". How exactly do we do that? Thanks in advance.
  13. None of the tuts that mountnman suggested seem to explain much and the thread where I got the Extract Color plugin doesn't explain how to use it either. I even went to this tut here, but it doesn't seem to make any sense. Several people in that thread have asked for help, but nobody seems to want to help them. My issue with that particular thread is that when I try to follow its instructions, I get nowhere near what they're trying to explain. For example, they suggest we open an image and use the Magic Wand (with tolerance at around 27%) and just click any part of an image and it's suppose to automatically choose the whole image (nothing more) and then we copy that image and proceed with the tut. However, every time I click any part of an image it only picks a very small amount of it (not the whole thing like the tut explains). Many people in that thread have somehow got it working, but they don't want to help those that don't understand it. So I guess my question is, can someone be kind enough to either explain that tut better than the original author did or know where I can find out how to use the Extract Color plugin? Thanks so much ahead of time.
