  3. I would like some ideas for how to create the thread of a screw as in WelshBlue's work here on a spanner (Spanner.jpg). There is a tutorial on creating a screw head only. Have made a couple of attempts, but have hit a brick wall
  4. A big welcome to you ActiveBiz and thanks for the great comments.
  5. Try out the BoltBait's Bevel selection plugin - that will give a raised effect with shadow on 2 sides of the rectangle

    The alpha mask step is not working for me - see this link. I am getting a completely transparent Text layer - have tried twice and can't see where I'm going wrong.
  7. One plugin to try is Color Replacer - download from here My link See the following screenshot for the setting you need to change your white background to transparent. http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa341/afdcon/colorreplacer.png
  8. I haven't used the plugin, but I suspect the Delay option can be specified to adjust the speed of the animation and the Repeat Value if the animation needs to loop (value of 0 = no loop). Hope th at helps
  9. For installing plugins see this link. When you have installed the plugin, I suspect then you will be able to save file as .agif
  10. Please don't think you are not smart enough for this forum. It is a great place to learn lots of stuff about PDN and it does sound like there is a learning curve for you. I speak from experience - my first experience with layers was with Photoshop and it bamboozled me and then when I found PDN it took a while for the layers concept to sink in and, of course, now I understand it I can't believe I didn't understand it in the first place . Bottom line - stick with it. Try a google search for "paint.net video tutorials" - this could be a good way for you to get to a level where you do understand more of the postings on here. Second, get understand how to install and use some of the plugins and use some of the Newbie Tutorials to increase your confidence in using the software. ....and do please remember to give descriptive titles to thread you post.
  11. You may want to look at the following plugins - Circle Text http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=16347 and Wave Text http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=16634. When installed they will appear under Effects >> Text Formations
  12. The short answer is no. PdN isn't a web design program. However, it can be used alongside other programs to assist you put together a website - e.g. I use Serif WebPlus software and manipulate images in PdN
  13. Did you read the rules? http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/12139-tutorial-replying-guidelines/
  14. Download the plugin here http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=13003. It will appear in the Adjustments menu.
  15. Art, To get text in 1/2 circle, used the Circle Text plugin. On background layer I have created the outside layer of text - in the UI, Angle of Arc set to 180; Angle of Start -90 and Clockwise ticked. Radius set high - play around with setting. Created a new layer - screenshot2 - created the next inside layer of text - in UI same settings as before, except Radius value reduced. Then used Elipse tool to create circles - on new layer - setting brush wide as appropriate and using Object Align to centre. Created new layer and created 1st text inside elipse - settings as before but reducing Radius. Final text - "Distinction" - into another new layer - unticked Clockwise and adjusted settings until happy.
