  1. Thanks Pixey, but I've tried that. Oh well, will give it some more tries. All is well here, I'm now a proud grandfather, so I've got even more reason to get this thing back up and running!!!! Thanks so much! VTdad.
  2. Well, I've got a bit of a problem. I had to buy another computer, the old Dell I was using with windows XP just gave up the ghost. SO I bought a new one with Windows 8. Getting used to it and needed to download paintnet onto my new PC. I've been trying to download the plug ins I had on the previous machine, however I keep getting a "You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy this folder"message, below that there are 3 buttons, continue....skip....and cancel. I tried this with Pyro-child pack and also Ed Harvey pack. The only 2 plugins I had on the old machine. Any help
  3. I keep getting ....plugin error. I'd like to try this. Was there ever a fix made?
  4. Ok, I know I'm slow...I started at 8:30am off and on I finished at 7:15pm. hehehehe But here's what I came up with. I just wanted it done before the NCAA tourney started. As you all can see I have yet to master ANY of the tools...but hey, I'm trying. Not too bad for an old guy I think!!
  5. Thanks everybody. I went back to the site where I found this pic and was told the guy used a 3D graphics application called 3ds Max to make that one. I was just wanting to put the VT logo in place of the LSU one. I specifically ask on that site (it's a college football message board) if Paintnet or Gimp was used, and was told neither. That's when I was told it was done with the 3ds Max thingy.
  6. Are there any tools in Paintnet that I can use to make one of these? Of course I'd need to replace the LSU logo's and insert the VT logo.
  7. This thing is getting to me! Every time I try to download the Gradient bars plugin OR the other plugins to make me one of Pyrochild's sig thingy, I keep getting a window that pops us wanting me to register Winzip!!!! And when I think I have it (gradient bars)downloaded, I see a window open to my photobucket where all my pics are listed and it shows up as something called index5!!! I use Google Chrome and windows XP. I hope whatever I'm doing wrong is something simple but I can't figure it out!!! Gettin pretty frustrated here. later, kj--vtdad
  8. I am using Windows XP. I'll try the image shack thingy...don't really know what that is though. For my pic, etc. I use Photobucket...if that helps. thanks for your reply. later, kj
  9. Well, I know I'm doing something wrong!!! But what? Here's the response I get when I try to download the Gradient Bars. "The image is not recognized and cannot be opened"... I follow the instructions verbatim on downloading Plugins, I seem to be getting one step away from being done and I get the message that it cannot be opened!!!! I am using Google Chrome and I think I have the most recent version of Paintnet. I even wrote the instructions down on paper so as to NOT have to flip back and forth on the screen ans possibly miss something. Later, kj--vtdad
  10. I work for the power company so with all this snow I've been busy. I downloaded ( or I think I did) the graident bars thingy...I do not understand how to put it or make it go into my paintnet program???? sorry to be so pc stupid. later.
  11. Please try to bear with me here, but I'm not understanding the tutorial on how to download plugins. I was wanting to make one of Pyrochild's sig pic thingys. The one with the gradiant lines and water reflections. Am I supposed to download and install everything in his New Year's Eve plugin post? or Just the ones (I think there are 7 of them) that are under where he says here it is the long awaited graident thing. Like I said before I'm 57 so I'm not all that good at the PC, but I really would like to learn how to do some of the things I'm seeing you all can do on here. thanks vtdad
  12. Well, I have a really dumb question, in the tut on how to do the "Most downloaded sig" thingy by Pyrochild...I counted 7 different plugins. Do I have to install each one of those one at a time or what? I'd like to get that on in Orange and Maroon and I really like the water reflection feature. I plan to make that one and give it to my daughter she is a VT grad. later, vtdad
  13. Hi all,

    I'm 57 male and found paintnet just a bit before this past Thanksgiving. Trying to learn.

  14. OK, here's what I'm trying to do... http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll50/vtdad/logantsunburst.png to cut out the player in this pic minus the background. and add him onto this pic I found on here today!!! http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll50/vtdad/OandMexplosion.png I think this is very close to VT colors Orange and Maroon. This is guy is going to be our QB for the next few years and I was wanting to jazz up a pic to put on our message board. Thanks for being patient with me.....I'm 57 yrs. old and not too PC savy, I have been stumbling my way through trying to learn to use P
