  1. My Mcafee does NOT like this. I was prompted by paint.net to update (which I don't remember having to do in the years I've had paint.net) and once it "deleted" the old version, it had an error and could not upload the new one. I came to the website directly to get the new version and all I get is virus warnings. Even when I push past them, all I got was downloads that had nothing to do with paint.net.....not the most tech savvy person....but this is so frustrating!
  2. I know this must be a very basic question. I used to do all sorts of graphics on paint.net until my last laptop broke. Then I went to photoshop on the family computer and now back to here, but I'm starting from square one. How do I put multiple pictures/graphics into one? On photoshop you click and drag. Also is there some sort of user manual? Thanks for your patience and assistance!
  3. *stupidity enters this thread* ok. I just downloaded my first 3 plug ins. I didn't see an option of where to save them...so they are unblocked and on my desktop. How do I "unzip" them (if they need to be unzipped?) and how do I put them into the paint.net folder. You have the "effects" file but I have no idea how to move it there I'm kinda dense with computers but once I learn something I do pretty well. Please help me, and give simple detailed help I'm using vista and dowloaded them using firefox. I also closed the program (paint.net) while doing the downloads.
  4. Wow! I love this! It's way beyond my level, but maybe as I learn I'll come back to it!

  6. I swear, I always mess up these tuts :? Where did I go wrong this time?

  8. Thanks I re-posted with follow up questions
  9. yes, rendering swirls, making some like the image I posted above. a-is there anyway to do it without having to delete every pixel around the image? As you can see, that would be VERY tedious (i.e. the image above with all the small details) b-this is what I get how do I do it so the whole thing changes? original image > how it turned out > Not quite like I want...it only does part of it
  10. First of all, please bear with me, as I really don't know what I'm doing most of the time with the program. I'll learn something new then forget it But here's something I really want to learn. I want to learn how to make simple swirl designs if it's possible (or if it's not simple-key word here) maybe you can recommend some free graphics sites? I haven't had much luck. Example: But I want transparents/png, I've found plenty of these kind of backgrounds, but only a couple with transparent backgrounds A couple other questions: > How can you easily turn a jpeg with background into transparent? In the same token, can you select 1 color out of the entire image and just change the hue on that? (like a green screen in movies) > How can you change the color of a black/white object without using the paint bucket tool? This looses all definition. I know how to adjust the hue if it's blue into the whole spectrum, but not if it's black and white Thanks for any help and suggestions rendered!
  11. hi. My sister is the graphic person...that was her degree in college. I graduated in culinary arts and business :shock: I suck at computers, but I'm having fun learning. I haven't been on in a while. The sad thing is, when I learn new stuff, I have no purpose for that knowledge, nowhere to use it So then I forget.... anyway There's lots to learn here. I just have to say, I see some posts where people, especially in the newbie playground tuts tell people their tuts are too simple. To them, I say: some of us need SIMPLE and are a little....slow at this
  12. I think instead of asking what went wrong, I should ask what DIDN'T go wrong :?:
