  1. What? Red - surely you jest πŸ˜„ 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!
  2. 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?☹️ 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.πŸ˜‰
  3. Thanks for posting the puffin, Vagabondi!πŸ˜‰ Great to see you exploring 'Scribble's' possibilities.
  4. A Vettriano vibe perhaps... what's her secret?
  5. @E.E.R - I should have looked harder...who would expect it to be in a logical place!πŸ˜‰ @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.
  6. Great new images! - I particularly like the coloured tree 'texture' created in 'the bridge' image. Always enjoyable to see your latest creations.
  7. 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).
  8. Cuboids Use on an opaque layer then reduce face opacity in the effect and play with the settings.
  9. Yes - just doubled checked? (running ABP ad-blocker plus too)
  10. 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
  11. I get the smells and noises but I blame it on the whisky... ah spirits!
  12. 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? Here's the message:
  13. Thank you for the Galleria nomination Vagabondi - very much appreciated. Belated happy new year to all too.
  14. Happy Birthday! (belated). I hope the Martinis went down well 😎
  15. Thanks Seerose! Merry Christmas to you too πŸŽ…
  16. Thanks Remake! Thanks Welshblue! - Very reassuring comments... Glad to know traditional oil painting is still appreciated in a world where 'gaffer' taping a banana to a gallery wall is considered art!πŸ€ͺ More money than sense
  17. Hi Vagabondi, thanks for commenting. Time is always the problem. I must upload more recent ones, sometime. I've also got some more effects that need work. It took ages creating a website for my real paintings too: Here if you are curious. That sounds like I'm complaining - I'm not! (Learning to code in has helped to learn html/CSS and may help when the computers finally take-over! πŸ™„) It was meant to be a driftwood tree stump btw but a dragon is more fun. Water, particularly rivers and seas do fascinate me... analogy of emotion? possibly. Life (and time) are still mysteries to me but all images need light and dark. Many thanks for the compliments, happy Christmas (Or however you mark mid-winter)...and seasons greetings to all.
  18. Very enjoyable, entertaining and well crafted new images! πŸ•·οΈπŸ•ΈοΈπŸŽ¨
  19. I know nothing about .DDS and I don't know what you want to do to the alpha channel? My 'Alpha Threshold' plugin can show alpha as a colour but is not intended for height map editing. Perhaps combined with Pyrochild's 'Curves+' on alpha setting? If you are writing stuff for games you clearly understand what an alpha channel is. Therefore, why not explore codelab to write exactly what you require? All code needed is there (currentpixel.A) and I'm sure you will be helped if you have problems (post in 'Plugin-developers-central') people who know what they are talking about (probably not me!πŸ₯΄).
  20. Try pressing the windows key + V before pasting? New windows 10 clipboard behaviour where you can choose which clipboard image to use... all beyond me!
