  1. Nitenurse - A very moody scene, could be drawn in charcoal. Excellent work! Sasha - That it is beautiful. I love walking on the beach at low tide and watching the ripples. Clever original photo taken from a low vantage point to emphasise the perspective and the clipwarp frame looks like a mirror. D.S. - Your dog looks happy there, out walking his master. The background foliage has come out well. LionsDragon - That's really brought out the texture of the mane. Glad you've been experimenting with both effects. Many thanks to all that have posted images, comments or awarded reps
  2. If you give a rep/like but you have used your daily allowance the rep doesn't register (as expected) but there is no notification that it hasn't registered?
  3. I just noticed that the upvote/like thingies have stopped working for me . Presumably I've spent my daily allowance but I only noticed the rep hadn't registered after I had logged out? So apologies if I missed anyone - will try to catch up.
  4. D.S. Thanks for the compliment and images - That's a great looking bike!... and the young lady is very attractive too. Seerose - Very effective use of the effect, thanks for posting the images. Lynxster - Great results on your Dad's tree and the flower arrangement. Many thanks. Pixey - Your flower image has 'watercolour' feel to it, that I like...and the leopard has new spots. LionsDragon - Thanks for saying thanks - just dive in and experiment. I'm sorry I don't know the difference between a 'like' and an 'upvote'?
  5. The typo in the U.I. has been corrected (outlines not oulines) - thanks Remake.
  6. Thanks for your hard work restoring tutorials Pixey!
  7. Great work Lynxster! Thanks for your enthusiasm for TGA. - I hope I clicked on the right button for reps
  8. Tone Gradient Magnitude (new July '17) Name: TGMagnitude (Tone Gradient Magnitude) Description: Shows the magnitude of the tone gradient giving various outline effects. Menu: Stylize Original release date: 22nd July 2017 Author: Red ochre (John Robbins) .dll name: TGMagnitude Compatibility: Tested on Pdn3.5.11 and latest paint.net4 version (4.0.17). TGMagnitude.zip The code for this is closely related to TGAngle and also makes use of MJW's ideas (Thanks again!). It creates outlines in proportion to the change in tone, giving results superficially simi
  9. Using Firefox 54.0.1(32 bit) & paint.net 4.0.17 I've tested the previous problem image (link page 1) and a few other web images. Glad to report no problems for me now. Perhaps Firefox have fixed their bug - either way I'm happy!
  10. Good work on the Seascape tut', LionsDragon! The long boat adds a story... Vikings off for a hard days pillaging?
  11. Seerose - Very 'craggy' rock textures. Thanks for posting. (I must hunt out my old Deep Purple albums) Oceana - I'm glad you're enjoying this one. Thanks for the compliment and for the picture. I like the textures created in the sky.
  12. Thank you (and helpers!) for all your hard work restoring images and creating PDFs.
  13. Seerose - Beautiful 'metallic' flowers, many thanks for posting the examples. Lynxster - Thanks for posting the text image. I've got PS elements on my Vista machine but haven't used it for many years, I find Pdn more flexible! I'm glad you have found a technique to get the text effect you after. If there are other text styles you can't emulate, do post an example in 'discussions'. Between us all we should be able to get close. Nitenurse - cool! Reminds me of the Janis Joplin song. Thanks for posting.
  14. Welcome to the forum, 2.7182818 etc. Good idea for a plugin, thanks for sharing. Suggestions: State that it is found under Effects/Object (though it works on opaque Secondary color backgrounds). You could link the max and min sliders tooexample code
  15. Andrew David - cool Eiffel tower image for Bastille day yesterday. Good work, thanks for posting. Eli - 'Oscar' Macron? - clever use of the effect, thanks for posting. D.S. - Object edge is one way to get a gradient over an object. I tend to use it twice, first with a large radius then with a smaller one to darken the sharp corners. The techniques I described here should work.Clipwarped text tutorial The unpublished 'EdgeShaderMJW' effect (on this thread edge shader) is also very useful. Direct download below. EdgeShaderMJW (MJW's version is at least 10 times faste
  16. LionsDragon - thank you! (I'm out of reps at the moment). D.S. - thanks for the info. Interesting how the O is distorted - computers never do what I expect them to!
  17. Interesting example D.S. - looks great btw, thanks for posting. My first impression was the text was standing higher than the background texture but it could equally be incised into the texture. Just a matter of the way we 'read' 2d images I guess. Most classical still life paintings use a top left to bottom right light source... the same direction we read text. As your image has a horizontal light source it could be considered either right to left (raised, convex text) or left to right (concave, inward text). Does that make any sense ...I can get carried away sometimes! T
  18. Line/Curve tool, constrain to straight? I draw a straight line between two points. I then wish to extend the ends to the edge of the canvas before 'finish'. I cannot currently see any way of doing this without bending the existing line. Is there a modifier key to constrain the control nubs to a straight line? I suspect there is not (as shift is used as an angle constraint) and I couldn't find anything in the docs. If so, please could one be added or ...(even better and more user friendly) add a straight line option next to the Spline and Bezier options?
  19. Thanks for the explanation and the links D.S. Thanks for posting the image Sasha, it highlights the textures well - the residence of Lord and Lady Bling?...imagine if it was chocolate under the gold foil!
  20. Many thanks - brilliant tutorial ...but it can send you boss-eyed!
  21. Another great result on the gear-wheel animation D.S. Many thanks for posting it and the tips.
