  1. I'm not going to do your work or evgirls work for you that is what the search function is for, the only difference between this and the may tuts that show how to put an image inside text is the background she uses.

    New users should be working through tuts rather than posting them ;)

    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 The majority of them are pretty old/outdated if you ask me.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...

  2. Sorry if I offend you but this tutorial is too simple and has been done many times before, check through the forum to make sure you are not repeating someone elses work first. Also as a new member I would suggest working your way through tutorials rather than writing them. Again no offense meant.

    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?

  3. 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:

    7. Duplicate layer and do steps 3 to 8 again on this new layer.

    Isn't it rather "do steps 3 to 6 again on this new layer"?

    In step 10 you say:

    Select color balance under adjustments and set red to 40 and yellow to 40. Yous should have the below:

    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.

  4. 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. B)

  5. (Lost) lol! (i'm finally in the middle of the 6th season)

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. Plus, they try to make us forget all the mess they made by making things sound "awesome" by adding this to our e-mails:

    We're constantly improving our streaming selection. We've recently added hundreds of movies from Paramount, Sony, Universal, Fox, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, MGM and Miramax. Plus, in the last couple of weeks alone, we've added over 3,500 TV episodes from ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, USA, E!, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, ABC Family, Discovery Channel, TLC, SyFy, A&E, History, and PBS.

    We value you as a member, and we are committed to making Netflix the best place to get your movies & TV shows.

    ....Respectfully?? They value us??...yea right

  8. 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.

  9. So many things to remember, you need SeamlessTextur eMaker

    Try this video for the plate's pattern:


    +1 Thanks for the video tut yellowman. However, I was stuck halfway through the tut because I'm missing the 'Engrave/Emboss' plugin. I've looked for it in the help search, but can't seem to find that specific plugin or in which plugin pack it must have come in. Can you or anyone perhaps know where I can find it? Thanks in advance.

  10. Yes

    Merge all rectangles down, so you have one layer of 5 rectangles in it, and in step 14 it says Duplicate this layer, that means the resulted layer "which has 5 rectangular in it should be duplicated",

    Then in step 15 add a new layer in between those two layers of step 14.

    Hope its clear

    Ok cool! Yes, that's clear yellowman, thanks so much for your help. +1

  11. Very nice outcome barbieq25. :) I was wondering if you or someone else can help me out a bit here? You sort of lost me after step 12. After Where you say "Mirror left half over right". Are we then suppose to be on our own and make a new layer per rectangle then use the MIrror effect according to the rectangles' position? Then once we're done with our complete images of rectangles we go to step 13?

    But then again on step 13 you say "Merge all the rectangles down.", but then on step 15 you say "New layer between the two rectangle layers." Which two rectangle layers are we talking here? I thought we already merged all the layers down in step 13? Sorry for the noob questionss, I'm just a bit confused.
