  1. THanxx for that, man. I'll go over it & let you know how it goes!
  2. Curmud, I'm a total beginner here, & I'm not familiar with most of the tools (including Clone) here. I've read the very brief paragraph on 'Clone Stamp' in the "Help" section, but it doesn't explain how to go about it. I'm going to try to work it out "on the job". Can you give some steps for "Just set the anchor point to an area that's "dirt-free" and draw that area over the dirty areas"? Thanxx again
  3. If I used Clone Stamp, would not that also copy the "dirt" (or dithering artefacts) from the original image? Thanxx
  4. Hello Stephan, Yours is the clearest, most concise answer, so far. So, I have to create a top layer, type the bold words on it, & then "superimpose" it on the 'bottom' layer which has the rest of the text & entire graphics? Sounds like a complicated process. . Would you be kind enough to give me the steps, starting with my original jpg which has the graphic & text in it? Thanxx a million!
  5. I don't know how to add noise to a picture (or graphic), ryan. I have a small graphic that appears to have some 'noise'. I've tried the 2 functions to reduce or eliminate the "dirt", but it seemed to make no difference. Can someone, anyone, please care to explain those 2 functions, because they are not explained in the 'Help' section? Thank you
  6. Hello xryan, I think you guys may not have fully understood what I am trying to do. Let me try to explain this 1 more time: I have a jpg graphic here. It contains some lines of text below it that I had inserted, using Microsoft PAINT. I wanted to make just some words in this text bold but I couldn't. When I highlighted those words to bolden them, ALL the text turned out bold. Same problem with 'underline'. So, just how do I do that now in Paint.net? Remember, the whole graphic now is in the form of jpg (including the text). [in a normal word-processor Like Microsoft WORD, when you've typed out some text, if you want to bolden (or underline) some words, you first highlight those words before you execute the bold (B) function. In paint.net, HOW do you choose some part of the text? I've discovered that you cannot highlight any text.]. Thanxx again
  7. Hello, I'm making this enquiry as a beginner again. It concerns the use of the feature "Noise Reduction": can this be used to improve the clarity of a graphic that has a certain amount of "dithering" or "artefacts"? (ie. what appears to be "stray" pixels just adjacent to the actual image pixels). The 2 parameters in 'Noise Reduction': Radius & Strength: There are no explanations in "Help" on them. Can someone please explain what they mean and how to use them to reduce noise? Thanxx again.
  8. Hello, I'm a total newcomer to paint.net; I've got the latest version. I'm exploring this because I couldn't do something rather simple in Microsoft Paint. I have printed out the entire "Help" section & read it, but cannot find this simple topic. I've also done a search a few times & came up with nothing. OK, the very simple thing I'm trying to do is this: After you've typed out some text, how do you selectively bolden or underline parts that you want? For a start, I tried highlighting the words that I wanted to impart these attributes, but I couldn't do it! (It appears you cannot highlight parts of a text. Is that right?). When I tried to bolden or highlight certain words or parts of a text, the entire text would be bolden or underlined! Same problem a I encountered in Microsoft Paint. Is this how it is meant to be? OR is there a way around it? I would really like to resolve this ASAP. Thanxx very much in advance for any help/advice.
