  1. When I Paintbucket fill a new layer with Red (or other color) at zero Alpha - Transparency in the Color window, it Color Picks as black with zero Alpha - Transparency.

    In Overwrite mode.

    This, even before saving.


    If I make a zero opacity red (or other color) layer as described in post #5,

    saving as Optimized PNG, it produces a zero opacity layer with color values preserved.

    This is based on my actually testing this, not on my belief.


    Color Picking the attached OptiPNG will show different colors at different locations, all zero opacity.


  2. I don't know what file type you need this to be.

    With PNG file type:

    Make your layer with RGB values at full opacity.

    Fill a new layer with white, copy the white layer into the clipboard, delete the white layer.

    Apply the Alpha Mask Import plugin effect to the RGB value layer, with all boxes checked.

    This will give full transparency.

    Save as Optimized PNG, using the OptiPNG file type plugin.

    This will give zero opacity with RGB values preserved as verified by Color Picker tool.

  3. Duplicate your layer.

    Apply the Silhouette Plus plugin effect to get a result that is

    a single color of your choice, with matching opacities.


    Or apply the Silhouette Plus plugin effect, set to black.

    Use the result as an alpha mask.

  4. Most likely you are trying to bucket fill, use the paint brush,

    or erase outside of the selection area.

    Sometimes the Magic Wand will select only a very tiny space.

    The rest of the canvas will be unselected, and can't be acted on by any tools.

    Pressing the Esc key on your keyboard will remove

    the selection so that the tools can be used again.

  5. Right-click the DLL, then click Properties.

    Generally, if there is no option to unblock showing, I'd assume that they aren't blocked.


    Try this:

    Close, then re-open Paint.NET.


    Look here:

    Utilities > View Plugin Load Errors

    If any error reports are present, pls. post them.


    Also, open your Paint.NET Effects folder, and make a full screenshot.

    It should show the contents of the folder and the full folder path in the address field.

    Post the Direct Link, or thumbnail.
