  1. "Open Recent" will not open a file if it was (a) deleted, (b) moved or (c) renamed. Possible solutions (a) Like @toe_head2001 suggested, look in the Recycle Bin, (b) Search the file name with File Explorer to see if you can find it in another folder (c) Check all image files in the folder you think you saved in case your file was renamed by mistake.
  2. You can toggle the floating windows on and off using the F5, F6, F7 and F8 buttons to access the menu and buttons behind them.
  3. Here is a list of all shortcuts:
  4. In this particular example, the easiest way to accomplish what you need is to add each image to a new layer and change layer all Layer Properties to "Additive" or "Lighten" (no need to do that for the bottom layer).
  5. Another: One way to accomplish this, is to use a plain B&W radial gradient as a mask over a four-way gradient. I remember doing this a while back.
  6. Congratulations to the winners and all.
  7. What @MJW suggested (he replied while I was typing), plus a few more techniques at these topics that could work:
  8. I think I've learned from this competition. Congratulations to well deserved winner @MJW, @Pixey and @welshblue for their placements and everyone who entered for their quality entries.
  9. @BoltBait wrote a plugin some time ago to address this. It works well with right angled objects. Hopefully someone with the ability and time will work on improving it further.
  10. I also usually use the same method as @Eli . Another way that sometimes works well in is to draw the first line on its own layer, copy the layer and then move the new layer with the Move tool.
  11. As the only entrant to be left off the podium, congratulations to everyone ?
  12. Oh, the brilliance of the man! Thank you @xod for reminding me to revisit this gem:

  14. It may be worth your while to have a look at this one too:
  15. In my case, it's more a matter of habit. I have both plugins installed but I routinely use Alpha Mask. I think it's because it's placed in the Effects main menu rather than in a sub-menu.
  16. The Alpha Mask plugin treats transparency like white. So, if your clipboard contains your layer of a white object (your outline) on a transparent background then the plugin understands that you want to keep all the layer and discard nothing. The way around this is to insert a black layer below your white outline layer and merge them together (remember to change the white layer properties to normal before merging). Then copy the merged layer to your clipboard and use the Alpha Mask plugin with "Paste from Clipboard" ticked.
  17. Have a look at the first steps of this tutorial:
  18. No big deal but that (and the deletion of Maximilian's link) came after my report. EDIT: ... or maybe not.
