  3. Flip...what 3d effects in movies do you think were better than Avatar?
  4. Worth going to see...I just couldn't justify paying extra to see it in 3D. By the way several movie goers leaving the theater were commenting about the same thing so it wasn't just me. Of course after Avatar maybe we are spoiled.
  5. Happiness is waking up to sun streaming through the window. Waking up to the smell of scrumptious breakfast cooking in the kitchen. Being served coffee in bed and savoring French Toast that someone else cooked for you. Oh yes, and not having to go to work.
  6. Alice In Wonderland just came out in 3D. To be honest I was disappointed with the effects but then perhaps it is because I'm still remembering the great effects in Avatar. I expected to feel like I was really grabbing for something while Alice was falling down the hole. At the end the butterfly was a nice touch and I almost felt like it was in the theater with me but overall the effects were disappointing. To be honest to compare Alice to Avatar is like comparing oranges to apples but I still feel like I was ripped off by paying extra to see it in 3D. Just my two cents worth. Now I'm off to see if the 3D glasses will make my images in Paint.Net look any better.
  7. You know you are addicted to Paint.Net when you have stood in line for an hour or longer to watch the release of a new movie and in the midst of it you take out your laptop because you got an idea while watching and you don't even mind that you get kicked out of the theater because the light from your screen is disturbing other movie goers.
  8. Good thing I'm addicted to this forum as I learn new things every day. I spend a couple of hours surfing through some of the personas out there and some are really well made. I played around with trying to make my own but kept coming up against the 300kb limit. Also the program is screwy as I have to pick a pre-made persona and then go back and set mine. It will not let me change them one after another. I've always customized when I've found a way to do it. It really freaks out the tech people if I have to have my computers worked on. I have to admit it would be nice to be able to be able to make my own themes for Firefox.
  9. You know you are addicted to Paint.Net when you spend $20 worth of ink printing out images as you can't decide which one you created to use on a greeting card that you could pick up at a store for under $5.
  10. Hi my name is Myoriah. I'm addicted to Paint.Net and lately this forum. I must confess I was overjoyed when my boss called today and said that I didn't need to come into work. She had more people scheduled than she had jobs for. I meant to go get my hair colored today after my boss called but I got sidetracked with this idea I had for a new sig as well as ideas for graphics to use for the St. Patrick day cards I'm making for friends and family. I'm afraid if I leave for a minute the muse will leave me. My dogs look at me with soulful questioning eyes as if to say "Why don't we go on walks anymore Mom?" I noticed the other day when I walked into the kitchen for a cup of coffee to keep me going that they now waddle instead of walk and JR now dusts the floor with his belly. One less household chore for me to do now. Talking about household chores the furniture now looks like someone used a blur effect on it. The original surface no longer recognizable. My bedroom looks like someone went and made a collage by randomly throwing around images on a canvas. Sorry have to go the muse is calling and I need to get back to my open program of Paint.Net and follow up. But I'll be back soon to check out the new posts
  11. Where are the nearest PDN Annonymous meetings held? Just in case there isn't one yet I'll start one right here. Hi my name is Myoriah. I'm addicted to Paint.Net and lately this forum.

  12. I'm not sure how to go about it but I think the soldier on the first one needs to be popped out a little bit. He is hard to see at least for me and I think if popped out he would appear more lonely. The second one I think needs something. Sorry but it appears too blah and ordinary. Doesn't invoke any emotion or nothing. Perhaps add some blurred wisps or more of an impression of fog without totally losing the soldier. Maybe just a touch of color somewhere. Thanks for sharing. I hope someone who knows more how to do things with this program than I do will have some good ideas of how you can improve them. I think you have a good start and see lots of potential with your images.
  13. I noticed as I walked to my car after a long and stressful day that the moon looked like a pregnant lady who was about to give birth. "Oh no! This is going to be a strange night" I thought. I opened the front door and instead of being greeted by the ecstatic sound of dogs barking I only heard whimpering. Radiating from my computer was an eerie light and eerie sounds. I cautiously crept closer and noticed that the words download Paint.Net was flashing. I tried to shut down windows and the computer would not shut down. I ran my virus scanner but no virus found. I even tried to reformat the hard drive even though I knew it would take me months to reconstruct the hard drive. Nothing worked so I downloaded Paint.Net and the rest is history. Seriously though I first checked out the original Ms Paint and found it very limiting but then those were the early days of Windows so I didn't really expect much. [windows 3.1 had just come out] Then a friend gave me a floppy with Paint Shop and I used that for awhile. Adobe Photo Shop came with a new printer as it was time to replace the dot matrix printer with something better. Adobe Photo Shop was all right but I really wanted something better. I tried Gimp and some of the other programs out there but would get to the point where money had to be shelled out or the program was too difficult for my feeble mind to comprehend. Having to make the decision to eat or buy a graphic program I decided that eating might be the best alternative. I continued to use Adobe Photo Shop and some online programs until one day I had to buy a new computer. The new computer would not install Photo Shop as it was a 16 bit program. Put free graphic programs in search and found Paint.Net which I immediately downloaded. I was trying to do something and help sent me to the forum. Boy was I ever excited when I found out all I could do with this program. I was very pleased when I upgraded to win 7 that Paint.Net continued to work flawlessly. Recently bought a new printer and Photo Shop came with that but after playing with the program for a few minutes I came back to Paint.Net. Only negative thing about Paint.Net and this forum is that it is addictive. But at least I am not gaining weight as I don't eat decadent chocolates or other food while playing around with the computer. Thanks everyone who shares their knowledge,puts together plug-ins,and offers it free. Thanks for the help also that everyone who comes here so willingly gives.
  14. fleeting glimpse you missed the black cat with the telporting unit on the back quarters. That is the first thing I noticed. My impression at first glance was that it was spirits perhaps of the departed watching over us. I also saw what appeared to be an alien watching us. Perhaps studying us. Interesting piece and choice of colors. Second look at your work and instead of spirits watching over us I'm thinking about a native american type poem that I wrote about spirit rising. It is about how at the time of earthly death the spirit rises to another plane,another place. So I thought perhaps the spirits were rising not singular but in a group somewhere.
  15. This is the first picture I came up with to use on the front of a card. Although I liked it it seemed to be a little blah so after playing around with different things I came up with this one. I like it a lot better. I thought I had lost this vintage image but it resurfaced so using the vintage image and a stock image of shamrocks I put together this. I plan to use some curling ribbon on the card to echo the ribbon in the vintage image. Another vintage image with the same shamrock image. I found a shamrock necklace strung on string and I'm going to use part of the necklace on this card.
  16. This is my first attempt at putting together a photo collage with this program.
  17. Way to go on the A! Rain is expected soon so I'll forgo listening to it until I can hear it naturally. For me "heaven" would be having a tin roof as I love to listen to rain tapping out its' melody. Hmmm...wonder if I could bribe my landlord to install a tin roof. Probably not . When not listening to the rain I get great pleasure out of one of my dogs drumming out music with his wagging tail on any surface he can find. He is so full of life. Maybe I should start a band and have him be my drummer. Took a walk in the sunshine. I would say I walked the dogs but if truth be told they actually walked me. These dogs may be small but I think they could easily pull a sled or wagon. Happiness is pets. They give so much and ask so little in return.
  18. I save my graphics in png format for use in Word and Publisher. I have gotten great quality in my printouts. I use the autodetect setting when I save them and so far have not been disappointed. If you have any doubts best to save first as pdn and then save in the different formats. Good luck!
  19. I had forgotten about that book until just now reading your post. Think I'll head to the library and see if they have a copy of it available for me to checkout. It is interesting how we appreciate and understand more of a book when rereading it during a later stage in our life.
  20. Several of the books that BoltBait and others have listed are also my favorite. It has been my experience that movies for the most part do not do justice to the book. I have some books that I reread and they are what I call my comfort books. The first book on my list is a poem but I'm a poetess so what else would you expect. The first poem I remember ever reading was Robert Frost's Stopping by Woods On A Snowy Evening. In 1978 it came out in book form with wonderful illustrations by Susan Jeffers. I was pleased to find it is still in print so was able to buy this book for my grandchild. Come Be with Me by Leonard Nimoy. Who would have guessed that Spock was a poet. The book is full of profound poems. In the introduction he writes "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory." Dr. Zhivago by Louis Pasternak is another favorite. In my opinion much better than the movie and the poems at the end are wonderful. I especially like reading this on a hot day all of that snow cools me off. Starting with Catering To Nobody by Diane Mott Davidson through her entire series. She writes mysteries with caterer Goldy Schultz as the main character. The predicaments that Goldy gets herself in are hilarious. The early books have the recipes of dishes she makes in the story scattered throughout but the later books have all the recipes in the back which I like better. Most of the recipes can be made with items found at the supermarket so no running around to try to find them. As a caution I must warn you that her culinary mysteries can be hazardous to your waistline and I swear I gain ten pounds just reading her books. Any book written by Dean Koontz. His writings are thrillers that deal with the nature of evil,the grip of fate and the power of love. With a lot of supernatural thrown in. He keeps me turning pages until the book is finished. His newest book "Relentless" which was published last year is I think one of his best. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy a classic. I first read it as a teenager for a book report. Rereading it years later I realized the significance that trains played in the novel starting with the children playing with a toy train in the first part of the book. Originally it was written as a series to be printed in the paper but a clash with the editor of the paper over the final installment caused it to be printed as a novel instead. Many of the Russians believed at the time of its publishing that it was only a romance novel about the upper class. Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell. I was glad that I had read it before seeing the movie. My parents didn't think it was a suitable book or movie for a young lady to be reading or watching. The pictures in my head are more vivid when I reread the book than the movie could ever be. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I especially enjoyed Jo who was ahead of her time. Only later when it was required reading in school did I discover that Jo was actually based on Louisa May. It was only years later that I discovered my dad had found a copy of Little Women in a cabin he had become snow bound in and had read it to pass the time and it had become one of his favorite books. Oh The Places You Will Go by Theodor Seuss Geisel aka Dr. Seuss. Great not only for preschoolers but for those of us who pledged to never grow up. There are those who think this is not the best of Dr. Seuss but it will still be my favorite along with The Cat In The Hat. It gives me hope that one day I may still be a success but then after just now rereading my last favorite book maybe I need to re-look at my priorities. By the way March 2 is his birthday although libraries in my area are celebrating it this month on the 27th. hope for the flowers with words and pictures by trina paulus. Although perhaps at first glance it looks like a children story it really is a book for adults. Although I must confess that it was my son's favorite bedtime story and one I didn't mind reading over, over, and over again. For those who are artists the one phrase in the acknowledgements (the author's spelling) will probably speak to you also. Someone asked an artist how long it took him to make a certain picture. "Five minutes and my whole lifetime," he responded.
  21. Here is an automatic drawing I did with two different textures being used as background. I did the drawing with my eyes closed. Good thing it was done on my computer or I would have had paint,pencil or crayon all over the wall.
  22. I've used Photobucket for a long time now. If inactive for too long they may delete your account. So perhaps that is what has happened to some people. They have sent me e-mail telling me that I need to log-in in order to keep my account from being deleted.
  23. Hi I have been around for awhile but have never gotten around to introducing myself. I used other programs in the past but when I got a 64 bit computer they would no longer work so found Paint.Net. I'm glad I did. I'm having fun experimenting and playing around with different things. This is a link to my gallery. viewtopic.php?f=26&t=33539
  24. This is something different. I got the idea to divide the dog and to use different images for symbols from Roy De Forest's Ink on paper "K-9 Corps". The music notes near Jr's tail is because he loves to use his tail as drumsticks on any available surface. One of these days I'm going to rent him out as a drummer.
