  1. Hi Scooter - I always enjoy your witticisms in the comedy thread!👍 Some minor, possibly unwanted? feedback: 1. 10/10 for crediting your source images. 2. 95% for cutting/pasting and placement - I feel the cart is a little low in the image. Considering the axles would point toward the vanishing point (on the horizon L.H.S), if it's on flat ground. Excellent cutting out of the different images though! 3. 24/32 for Lighting - an almost impossible task but you have chosen consistently lit images apart from the cat, which has rather a 'flat' light. 4. 5/4 for blendin
  2. I experimented with that square - mix- root method for Gradients Galore in 2018 but decided there was no great advantage and it looks worse for other colour mixes, so I didn't update the published version. It would be quite a task to use that method of mixing for all effects & operating systems too!
  3. @Jemcrystal - There are many types of Bezier curve, this article may help:Wikipedia😉 Shapemaker has more choices for cubic and quadratic curves and splines.Shapemaker
  4. I would think for simplicity the image on the clipboard would define the rectangle and grey-out the Rectangle Location and Height controls? It would then depend upon the user having selected a useful size and aspect ratio to copy.
  5. Thanks for the tips. Since a long image is required to wrap around the spiral but the spiral itself fits best onto a squarish canvas/selection, is it worth considering an option to use the clipboard for the long image? - Just an idea!
  6. I'm terribly sorry, I didn't know. Take it easy and best wishes for a speedy full recovery.🌼
  7. Svea - My best wishes to you, your mother (Leanne) and family (sister?). Sasha - I hope you recover to full health soon.
  8. Very impressive! works well. What settings give the largest number of turns? Two wrap-a-rounds seems to be about the max? More could be useful if possible.
  9. Good to see you posting images again. I like the warm colour combinations in 'Late Autumn Delivery' and the elegant witches in 'Waterlilies'. Stay safe!
  10. Many thanks Scott! ... however, the zipped version was previously about a third the number of the installer version?🙄 I haven't tried editing that thread for years. Is it now possible for non-admin users to add buttons without BB code or html? Ah, I see it now is, blue or grey! 😊 Perhaps the CSS shadow or blur behind the size/downloads text should be removed for readability?
  11. 1. Many of the plug-in packs hosted on the forum no longer show the number of downloads? BoltBait's and EER's do. Pyrochild's, toe_head2001's and mine do not? I believe these packs are all hosted directly on the forum. 2. I also notice there are no spaces between the 'sig' competition entries in the voting/winners sections? Wouldn't a one line gap between images be less visually distracting and more attractive?
  12. Thanks both for the info. I may investigate further when the hosting fee is up for renewal (November). Though called 'hosting.co.uk' they use German based servers, I couldn't find a uk based one! Quite possible they'll flip the big switch anyway when the Brexit transition ends!😁 However they are relatively cheap (£24 p.a.) and I haven't noticed any down time but they're far from user friendly for a website novice like myself. In the initial account details email they sent me it said (verbatim): "Please ignore the non-trusted SSL certificate error, when you
  13. The self certificated SSL has expired and does not give an option to renew as self certificated - only to purchase.(using cPanel via hosting.co.uk) Self certificated will still show a warning to site visitors and seems pointless for a simple portfolio site. https://docs.cpanel.net/knowledge-base/security/guide-to-ssl/ Which free DV SSL certificate provider would you recommend? - Installing a 3rd party free one looks intimidating! I may contact my host when I've got a few weeks to spare... or change host in November... or just close the site.🙄
  14. You mean purchase SSL certificates for a site that does not do financial transactions?
  15. Reptillian said Strange? - they show up for me in Firefox, Edge & Chrome.
  16. Happy birthday🍰 - thanks for all the effects! - stay safe😷
  17. Sorry - I don't understand (my fault) but thanks for replying. I'll try another approach.
  18. Hello toe_head2001, I have installed these templates into VS19 successfully (thank you). However I've run into a problem after creating a project using the Effect<TToken> template. My copy of Pdn is in C:\Program Files\NEWpdn\ so I had to add missing references. I built the project successfully, opened Pdn and found the new effect (custom U.I. with slider), however when selecting "ConfigDialog.cs[Design]" in VS19 it shows this error: "The designer must create an instance of type 'PaintDotNet.Effects.EffectConfigDialog`2[[MyCustomUIEffect1.MyCustomUIEff
  19. Me too!... he's certainly not on the form he was last year. Hopefully looking forward to O Sullivan's come back tonight... though I wouldn't mind if Williams can get another World championship.
