  1. This is going to sound stupid. I want to do the concrete texture but...................where it says go to effects\color\solarize, there's effect and there's color but no solarize. Unless I'm missing something again.

  2. There may be compatibility issues. The Windowsbase in the log files seems to be the culprit. Check compatibility for the Ultimate version of Win7. It's different from the home premium and professional versions. On home premium the install is as smooth a glass. Also...I had this problem when loading PDN on Vista. There was a compatibility conflict with certain .dll's in system32. Had to go for a re-install under different settings. A dialog usually comes up saying this application may not have installed correctly. Either you ignore it and leave the install alone or do the re-install under the different settings. Other than that I really don't know. My time with it on Vista was very brief.

  3. Don't I feel stupid now. Talk about something staring you in the face. I apologize for my rant. I see them now where as before I didn't take notice. Thanks for all the help and patience. I'm gonna go back and try again. Who knows...maybe I'll get it right this time...lol.


  4. I am getting extremely frustrated. I'm doing the glass vase and in step 21......see screenshot


    This is what I get looking for it in distort......


    Tut says goto...Effects\Octagonal\quad reshape\matte......not to look in distort. I looked everywhere. I do not have it and the EOE.dll although newer does not contain this plugin...help lease.

  5. I like this tutorial. I've had a problem with creating the glow effect around buttons. Similar to the control buttons at the top right of the web page. I'd like to be able to use them in my calendars. Any suggestions? Or perhaps there is another tutorial you can refer me to. Thanks in advance.

  6. Here is my go at it. Admittedly it needs more work but I wanted to get some opinions as to how to improve on it. My main difficulty was with cutting the image. It isn't real clear as to how to do the invert selection. I tried it numerous times just the way it said in the tut but to no avail.


  7. Here's my go at the Interface Orb Had a bit of a problem with the picture layer probably because there's no picture there. Wanted to put the shadows top and bottom but it doesn't seem to work without a pic actually being there. I think it turned out pretty good anyway.


  8. Hello...my name's Ross, username uvah. I just joined up yesterday after discovering a few days ago that PDN has it's own website. I know...I must have been hiding under a rock but what can I say. I found it and here I am. I just wanted to introduce myself and while I'm not exactly a newbie, I've used PDN to create calendars for a website I belong to called Wincustomize. Anyway...(And this is not a plug as I'm sure a lot of people know them already), there are many, many, many new things I've discovered visiting Paint.NET, not the least of which is the amazing versatility of this app.

    Paint.NET has been called MSPaint on steroids and that is exactly what it was when I first found on cnet.com five years ago. Now PDN, with all the plugins installed, makes Superman look like a wuss. Now to the purpose of this post. I was notified of updates for a few of the plugins. I downloaded the package, unzipped it and got an installer.dll instead of an executable. On the web page for the download it says run the .exe. Was there a mistake? I mean..it's not like they're crucial or anything. with all these new found plugins (I turned it into a monster because I think I installed every plugin there is...lol). I put up an image to show you what I got. the zip and the unzipped.
