  1. I have just made an attempt to download and instal the latest version of Paint.NET, but had to abandon it as it attempted to instal Astromenda on my PC, which is some sort of browser hi-jacker. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  2. I have just downloaded dpy's plug-in pack and installed it into my Effects folder. However, I can't see Circle Text facility in any of my drop-down menus, although it is in my Effects folder. I have had it installed and used it in the past, but had to replace my HD so hence the re-installation. I am running Windows XP pro. Probably pilot error. All help appreciated. Thanks.
  3. Many thanks, folks. All ship-shape and Bristol fashion. Problem solved. Eric
  4. Thanks, but the transparency setting is intentional. As I said, I have not had this problem before. Here is an example of why I require transparency, besides obtaining the desired colour intensity. As you can see, the original footpaths and markings are still visible, which saves time having to reinsert them. Eric
  5. Thanks a lot. I'v tried the anti-aliasing, already, and it made no difference. This is the problem I have. The lines are going on in layers, as you can see. Eric
  6. I frequently use the lines/curve tool for filling in large items on the documents (maps) which I update.In the past, I have had no trouble doing this, but I now find that the lines no longer merge into one another, but overlap. I get the same effect when using the paintbrush tool. It is probably something that I am doing incorrectly, but blowed if I know what. Can someone please give me some advice? Thanks. Eric
  7. I have opened a .jpg image in both Paint.net and Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. The Windows image is patently better than the one in Paint.net. Click here to see them http://www.artus-familyhistory.com/source/Ledbury.html The top image is Paint, the lower Windows Viewer. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  8. Further to my question, I think I have found the answer. Delete the background layer and save the foreground as .pdn Any additional advice welcome. Eric
  9. Is it possible to create a new layer, and then save it to be merged later? The reason I ask, is that I am restructuring maps on my website, a process which requires repeated file saving and although I am working on the files in TIF format, they tend to degrade after a while. To work without saving is high risk, as a great deal of hard work can easily be lost, as I have found out. I thought that if I could spread out the saving process, it would improve matters. Thanks in advance. Eric
  10. Many thanks, dpy. A very useful piece of kit.
  11. Rhettius. I am not very bright at this game (76 years old) but, believe me, once you familiarize yourself with layers,it opens up a whole new world. Go for it!
  12. Many thanks, PC. And thanks for your plugins so far.
