  1. BoltBait's suggestion is a good idea for your most commonly used ratio. ===================================== Back to my suggestion. Open Paint.NET, add a new layer, delete the bottom layer. Make a Rectangle selection in the way that you currently are doing it. Use the Paintbucket tool to fill the selection with a solid color. Press F4, and name the layer according to the pixel dimensions/ratio of the filled selection. Repeat on new layers for as many different sizes/ratios as you want. Name the file "CT01". (Crop Templates 01) A short filename is preferable here. Before saving, use the Move Selected Pixels tool to position all of the rectangles near the top-left corner of the canvas. In the Layers window remove all checkmarks so all layers are invisible. ======================================= Once you have imported the file into a current project file, you can click the layer named with the selection that you want, and Magic Wand click near the top-left canvas corner to create the selection. It can the be moved using the Move Selection tool. It can be resized while maintaining aspect ratio by using the Move Selection tool on a corner nub with the Shift key down. . .
  2. Not normal. All that I have in my Staging folder is a single compressed .msi file. Make a copy of your Staging folder and paste it to your Desktop. Then delete everything in Staging except for any .msi file. Re-start Paint.NET and see if it works without crashing. ======================================== Also, try running PdnRepair: Typically - Program Files/Paint.NET/PdnRepair.exe
  3. You could prepare a PDN file with objects of the various pixel dimensions that you would like to have as crop sizes. When needed it could be imported into your current project file: Layers > Import From File... The crop size of your choice could then be produced using the Magic Wand. Alternately, you could make a special Paint.NET desktop icon targeted to always open with the crop mask file loaded. Be sure to set the file Properties to Read-Only to avoid inadvertently overwriting the file.
  4. Use the Line / Curve tool with the Shift key down.
  5. Here are some links discussing Paint.NET and Mac: http://www.google.com/cse?cx=017811919762320179081%3Achfn-2g_cbg&cof=FORID%3A1&q=mac&sa=Search&siteurl=www.getpaint.net%2Fsearch.html
  6. Starting with a solid gray sloped object. Duplicate twice. Use Adjustments > Brightness / Contrast to lighten the middle layer and to darken the bottom layer. Apply Gaussian blur, radius 2, to the two lower layers. Use the Move Selected Pixels tool with the keyboard arrow keys to move the lighter layer up 3 pixels, and the darker layer to the left 3 pixels. Merge the two lower layers and apply the Trail plugin effect. http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/6821/slopegradient04.png ======================================= Settings for blur and layer displacement will vary according to image size.
  7. Yes, that is clearly the more efficient way of doing things. This is targeted for beginners. I don't want to confuse things by telling them to do the "After" before the "Before", and the "Before" after the "After". The tutorial as-is introduces the use of the Move Selected Pixels tool. Your post is a worthy addition.
  8. Selection stretching/compressing. (Use the Move Selected Pixels tool on a center adjusting nub) and pyrochild's Liquify plugin.
  9. Use MadJik's Oblique plugin. evanolds's Quadrilateral Reshape plugin. and/or Layers > Rotate Zoom. .
  10. Try clearing your browser cache before downloading again. Clear Browser Cache
  11. Yes. The .pdb files can be helpful to the plugin author for debugging if a problem shows up with the plugin. .
  12. Images saved as the multi-layer PDN (Paint.NET) file type won't upload to hosting sites. Open the PDN image, then do File > Save As... . In the Save As dialog, open the Save as type: drop-down menu and choose PNG. When prompted, OK flattening. The PNG file should upload with no problem. .
  13. Paint.NET is an image editing program that can be downloaded and installed on your Windows computer. Once installed, image files can be opened for editing in the usual way. File > Open ================================================ http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/InstallPDN.html http://www.getpaint.net/download.html#download .
  14. It's part of the KrisVDM plugin pack.

  16. Sounds like it was not Paint.NET. Try doing a Google web search on "free image editors for Windows". Check the screenshots at the various links that come up in the search until you see something familiar.
  17. Here's a possibility. Save your layers of animation as PDN (Paint.NET) filetype. Extract the layers as PNG files, using the Layer Saver app. (PNG will preserve image quality better than GIF.) http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=9704 Import the PNG files into MonkeyJam (or other suitable video software). http://www.giantscreamingrobotmonkeys.com/monkeyjam/download.html MonkeyJam has an export to AVI option. .
  18. Here's a link to the Plugin forum: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/forum/7-plugins-publishing-only/ The author of Shape 3D is MKT. Shape 3D is one of the pinned topics on the first page. .

  22. Running the .exe file is all that you need to do.
  23. No, that won't work. I recommend against having anything but plugin files in the Effects folder. Some plugins have ancillary non-DLL files. Those are OK, too. That should be alright.
  24. At the bottom of the first post: Edit > Use Full Editor ============================================= Perhaps a good background would be Sword/Lady of the Lake. .
  25. This plugin will count the number of pixels of a particular color: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=15357 .
