  1. Hi Vagabondi, Glad to see you making good use of Two-tone threshold! Impressive snow effect achieved in the first one. Many thanks for posting the example images and thanks for saying thanks!🙂
  2. What? Red - surely you jest 😄 ShapeMaker has the close path feature and as many nodes as you like. Curing the mis-match between the shape created and what appears on the layer would be appreciated!... I meant to back-up my reasoning on the 7th of the 16th! ... but thought you'd think it was just sour grapes. A line width adjustment within the the effect will also be very useful if drawing to the current layer (or default to line-width 1px if you don't want to add to the U.I.) and when re-opening the effect, ideally the bitmap background will line up with the vector image in memory... not sure whether the effect should take the layer's/selection aspect ratio or just clip to a square? Thanks for your ongoing input!
  3. So I sign in to quote this thread in relevance to the shapemaker thread and it asks me to do the CAPTCHA ordeal and squashes my post?☚ī¸ Draw on canvas is currently broken (position mis-match) and needs a line width adjustment within the effect. I'm pleased TH has posted that he will address the issue.😉
  4. Thanks for posting the puffin, Vagabondi!😉 Great to see you exploring 'Scribble's' possibilities.
  5. A Vettriano vibe perhaps... what's her secret?
  6. @E.E.R - I should have looked harder...who would expect it to be in a logical place!😉 @Old Banshee (Frank) You cannot select directly by shape but you could select all shape-A's, for instance, then save that selection for later use. (See E.E.R's links). Your method of colouring the selections as objects and saving on another layer my be just as good for one image.
  7. Great new images! - I particularly like the coloured tree 'texture' created in 'the bridge' image. Always enjoyable to see your latest creations.
  8. Additionally, selections can be copied (Edit/Copy Selection) then pasted into a text program such as 'notepad' and saved as an '.xml' '.json' (Edit by Rick: it's actually JSON, not XML) file. They can then be re-used at a later date by copying the .xml text in notepad then using 'Edit/Paste Selection'. They remain 'vectors' until committed to the canvas - as I understand. @E.E.R. - I couldn't find this in the documentation - but I didn't search for long ;-) @old banshee - well worth reading through the docs though (press F1 while Pdn is open).
  9. Cuboids Use on an opaque layer then reduce face opacity in the effect and play with the settings.
  10. Yes - just doubled checked? (running ABP ad-blocker plus too)
  11. Thanks! You know far more than I will ever know regarding web technology. That said, I've been using Kaspersky for years and if they wish they have access to everything on the computer do Microsoft. There's not much I can do about it (without a much deeper knowledge). All I can do is trust them both, unfortunately. It's a Lenovo laptop too ... I'm sure there will be O.S. 'backdoors' from all software and hardware providers. I've long thought that the purveyers of AV could be the writers of malware... like the glazier's children breaking windows. The whole website thing is new to me. Html and CSS are well explained on W3schools (php and javascript are next on my list) SSL is a complete mystery!. If you have recommendations for other useful learning sites please do share. All the best. John
  12. I get the smells and noises but I blame it on the whisky... ah spirits!
  13. Whenever I follow a thumbnail link to an image hosted on Postimg I get warnings from my Kaspersky anti-virus... It blocks what it thinks is malicious and still shows the images - so not a great problem for me. Just thought users should be aware... I assume it's no great danger?...what do others think?
