  1. Well I guess this is my answer. If the author and developer of my beloved PDN is using it and not something else then I guess I hit the program hard and get over the learning curve. 😕
  2. I have used PDN forever it seems. I have gotten into more detailed images and graphics lately and a new limit I am seeing is "pixelation" . Although the output of my work will be in a pixel format I seem to loose fidelity when rotating and editing text and small images in PDN. The attached image is an example. It is the tip of the letter "A". The left image is rotated 30 degrees. The flat top of the letter becomes jagged. I have seen vector graphics made to a ping file that appear much sharper. It appears that if you start with a vector you will have a higher quality outcome when converting to a pixel format. So my question is to fold: Is there any plans to release a vector graphics version of PDN? Does PDN have the ability to generate vector graphics on screen and export in .png or .PDN? (And I'm just not aware o fit?) I am so use to the PDN interface that I am struggling with finding and maneuvering around in other programs. What would the community here recommend as a decent vector graphics program to compliment PDN? Has the maker of PDN partnered with or collaborated with another software that would make is seem more familiar? Thanks for the help.
  3. I've installed this plugin, but can't seem to get it to work. It is installed and I can call up the plugin, but the effect does not work like the video below shows: Skip to 2:10 to see the effect I am looking for. The video takes a shape and uses this plugin to make exact copies. All I get when I do this is a second effect but my original is not copied at all See my attached image. All I want to do is take the triangle at the top and copy it around evenly like the gear tutorial on the youtube video. My layer five looks like layer Help please?
  4. You guys are awesome! Thanks! (All these years I have been struggling with this and didn't bother to think of this....)
  5. I tried the gear plug in. Very nice,but not sure I understand how it works or if it will work for me. I found the below video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCQxG9ni8Ic The Kaleidoscope plug in appears to do exactly what I am wanting. I'm thinking of creating a shape such as a triangle and making 12 evenly spaced copies around in a circular shape. Will the Gears plugin do this? The Kaleidoscope plugin appears to no longer exist.
  6. I have been a long time user of Paint.net and quite a while back the zoom controls where moved to the bottom right if the screen. I do a lot of work that requires me to zoom is to up to 1000 times and back out to fit the page. On my 27" monitor, that's a decent amount of travel every time! It's rather laborious to do so. Can the zoom be tied to the mouse scroll wheel or made into a floating tool bar like the other windows? I absolutely love this program, but man do I spend a lot of time zooming in and out.😫😋
  7. I'm getting into making watch faces for Samsung's Galaxy Watch and would like to create my own graphics. Obviously this will require me create and copy artwork in very exacting circular pattern either by calling out the degrees or number of copies. It would be very similar to making a gear I would suspect. The problem is that I cant seem to find any tool or plugin to accomplish this. Any help or suggestion? Thanks
  8. forgive me if this goes in another section, but does Paint.net allow the abilty to switch back to the last used tool after picking a color? :?: I use the color select tool a lot and have to always go back and reselect the prior tool (usually the brush tool). It would be a great time saver if I could select acolor and have the program go back to the default/ previous tool. I also would like to be able draw shapes, like a square, and be able to enter the size for repeatability. I find drawing repeat shapes of the same size difficult with a mouse, when I need to make them identicle. (Try to draw a square 567 x 702, 10 times. ) Thanks for any input. broderp
