  1. I want to select a part of an image and paste it on the second layer with the main picture on the first layer. example: see pic i want to select the whole human body portion minus the surrounding white portion and the white portions between the arms and the body. is there an easy way to do this other than the cumbersome method of lasso select tool. thanks.
  2. thanks. i am using avira which is updated. tried scan with malwarebytes too. can you enlighten me as to what is this which is shown as added on aug31 in my PC: paintdotnet 1398388592 in the folder "Staging" I do not remember having donwloaded it nor does it show in my browser history. is that a genuine part of the software? is that an update or something? can someone from paint.net advise? what does the folder "staging" mean? Aren't the "nativeimgaes" connected with paint.net? thanks for advice.
  3. I have a peculiar problem with Paint.net which has been installed and running for quite some time. Now I find that a program installer package called PaintDotNet_1398388592 is created in my Paint.net/staging folder on Aug. 31, 2013 having size 20,687 KB. After this date, suddenly, my windows/system32 folder is adding around 92 MB (large amount) every day and my space is getting reduced alarmingly. BY the way, I also found that in the windows/assembly folder, a NativeImages file was added on sept.9, 2013 with a huge size of 199 MB. Does this have anything to do with Paint.net? A
  4. thanks and i understand. but what i need is to see all the plugins available and to automatically detect the ones which are missing so i can determine whether any of the missing ones are worth installing. thanks
  5. thanks no racism involved here. in fact i want to change all the faces by lasso-paste but my question was for a general guidance about how to change skin color. all faces i use will be asian faces so the body skin (arms, neck) has to match. i just gave example of one face. see rough example attached
  6. I would like to change skin color in a picture, without disturbing the detail/features of the face. for example, see attached picture. i would like to change the dark skin face at left to a lighter color skin, something like the other persons. what are the steps i need to take with Paint.net to achieve this? thanks for guidance.
  7. There are many plug-ins which are being developed all the time for Paint.net. While Paint.net forum lists various plug-ins, it becomes difficult to know which plug-ins are installed and which ones are missing. It would be nice if someone can develop an application to check all installed plug-ins by comparing with updated available plug-in lists and show a list of the missing ones. Thanks
  8. I am trying to fix some text material onto an image which requires slanting to match the angle of the main image. I have done the following: 1. original image 2. add layer 3. copy the text material from another image and paste 4. position the image with the tool "move selected pixels" when i try to match the angle of the original image with that of the text material, the edges become jagged and are not smooth as the original. How do i achieve smooth edges with the text material. can anyone please guide me. thanks very much attachments: tap1.jpg tap2.jpg

  12. I am trying to create a Club Badge or Crest on paint.net. (please see examples) shall appreciate guidance on the following: 1. Which tools to use for creating the basic shield shape outline? 2. How do i make the ribbon shape e.g.blaby bowling club 3. How do i write the curved lettering e.g. Nil satis 4. Is there any way that i can give a metallic effect like a police badge either to the whole badge or only the letters? 5. What about a fabric effect?

  13. got it friend! good tips. will refine my pic. thanks a lot.
  14. thanks. unforutnately i did not get the effect. 1. i first opened the image in pdn. 2. click 'add new layer'. no blank layer came up. 3. typed text which came on the image. 4. i was able to tilt the text but the image has a dark background. 5. what i need is a white tilted panel with text in dark letters just as per the specimen attached earlier. (visualize the black portion as part of the image) i am practically a newbie. thanks. ps. to give a better idea of what i am looking for, please see the attached magazine covers with tilted text panels at the top. i need something similar, w
  15. I want to place a text panel on an image but at an angle. You find such texts on magazine fronts. I am attaching just an example of the text panel rotated at an angle. Can anyone guide me on a step wise procedure to do this with paint.net? thanks very much.
  16. thanks a lot. will see if i can do it. which are the features in paint.net to be used?
  17. thanks but what do you mean exactly when you say " make subtle changes to it on the left side to animate it"? what are the operations in paint.net? thanks for clarifying above.
  18. I have a still image. I would like to show the still image alongside and animated gif in one single image. e.g. the animated gif can be on left side and the still image on the right side. can any one please suggest whether it is possible with paint.net. thanks.
  19. I have an animated gif. Now I would like to place a background to the animated gif. Can anyone guide in a stepwise manner how to do it in paint.net. thanks. Example attached shows one animated gif and a human face to be used as background.
  20. The lasso tool is great for selecting irregular shapes. However, for someone who is not a pro artist, it becomes very difficult to precisely trace the outlines. What I normally have is a jagged irregular tracing rather than smooth tracing. Can anyone help me how to achieve this precision by someone who does not have the steady hand that artists have. Just by way of example, I attach a simple graphic of a chef's hat which I need to select by tracing with the lasso tool and copy it to paste on another image. Thanks.
  21. I wonder if a plugin could be provided to this excellent program that will enable putting speech or thought balloons on images? Thanks
