  1. I do not have this issue, but two things to try. It's unlikely, but you may have changed your Fill Pattern. When you select the Text Tool, toward the right of the toolbar will be a drop down menu titled "Fill: [something]". The standard is Solid Color, if it is not solid color, change it back to solid color. Otherwise, the first button to the right of this menu is a toggle between Anti-Aliased and Aliased images. The Anti-Aliased option makes text look smoother, by applying transparent pixels. An Aliased image is pixel-thin text, and it doesn't look too good. What you're describing is possib
  2. I've actually created a back up collection of my Effects and Filetype Folders in Paint.NET that are stored on my external hard drive. I used it initially to copy over all of my plugins from one computer to another, and now I add on to it regularly in preparation for a crash. As for rounding corners, there's a plugin called Rounded Rectangle which renders a rectangle with rounded corners. If you use that as a masking layer (put it on it's own layer, then use the magic wand tool to select the missing corners and go to the other layer(s) and erase those selections OR select the rectangle and jus
  3. The plugin (and images) links are broken. If anyone has the plugin already, can you upload it as an alternate link for this thread?
  4. I really liked the simplicity involved, and the fact that I wouldn't have thought of something like this. Went off of aguba's reversal application to create this image that focuses on the eyes.
  5. I can't speak for Pinta, but I would believe he may just be experimenting and wanting to see how successful he was in his first try at something like this.
  6. Thank you very much Sarkut. That is much better than what I had done.
  7. I haven't found a way, and I don't think there is one. If there is, I'd like to know as well. This is a quote from over 2 years ago, and I don't think I had PDN back then. But I've used the method of saving an image as a PNG, it asks to flatten, then it saves, and then I undo the flattening and continue any work on the image that I want. I do this often when toying with an image, and trying different effects. If I find an image I like, I save it, and continue experimenting. This way, I don't have to remember how far back in history to go, nor do I have to reopen a PDN to "restore" my work t
  8. I'm having difficulties with resizing some wallpapers here. Some I know can't be resized easily to look nice, and some will blur up noticeably. But some with a solid background color are very easy to change up. I was even able to handle an abnormal gradient thanks the plugin Trail by, I think, pyrochild. But then this one case came up, which I thought was easy enough to do. But it was tedious to make it look nice and be free of any sloppy editing. I looked around the plugins section, and couldn't find anything that did what I wanted. The closest was the plugin Trail, which will pull an image
  9. You should have a very relaxing time using this software. It is completely free (and has no viruses if you're worried about that, the great community and the fact that the program has been around for years should be enough to prove that). It is a program you download from the internet, and then use solely on your computer. You do not have to be on the internet while you use this program. I often find myself stumbling onto PDN (Paint(dot)NET the software) whenever my ISP or modem are having difficulties, just to toy around with random images. I do believe there is a red-eye removal tool that
  10. All I can see is faint lomography, as Sarkut pointed out. There may be color enhancements that involve fine tuning the levels, which PDN is capable of. Otherwise, someone more familiar with Photoshop may be able to identify some effects without seeing the originals. Based on the level of professionalism on that site, I'm confident that Photoshop is being used to edit those images.
  11. Thanks! That helps me a lot, as I know what to look for now (just searching that in google images brought up a bunch of similar types of pictures), and it explains the terrible choice of name to describe these images (fractals with an 'iu' after the l). It'd be really nice to see for PDN, it'd be one of the best plugins ever. If a general batching process came out for PDN, Fractalius+Batch=Bunch of nice images. I've been messing around with this, and I'm getting some cool images, but I don't have many that are really compatible already on my comp. Too many colors and such, and when drai
  12. Sorry about the images, that's why I used a hide (forgot a warning though..). Haven't used PB in a long time, so couldn't find any thumbnails if they had them for my images. Ya, I wasn't sure about the name. Twice now when trying to find out about these images I've been told their fractals, so I haven't been able to find anything solid on them. I'll look into Apophysis, thanks all.
  13. Your version of PDN most likely doesn't have any of these plugins. If you're new to image editing, don't worry about plugins until you've familiarized yourself with the program.
  14. I was wondering if anyone had any idea about these so called Fractals. The fractals in PDN aren't like these, as far as I can tell. Here's a few images I've collected recently.

And especially if you know how to create these in PDN or if there's a plugin th
  15. I just upgraded to 3.5.1 recently, and immediately noticed smudge was gone. Wasn't a big deal, was just practicing it recently. Then I went to do some color adjustments in one of my projects and noticed curves + was gone. I really enjoyed curves+ compared to curves, much more useful effects. I skipped right over 3.5 so don't know if those plugins were removed. Is there any replacement for these plugins that I can utilize, or are there plans for the developers of the plugins to create 3.5 and up compatible versions?
