  1. I did locate the settings, unchecked the GPU box, and restarted pdn.....but still had the same problem. I also went into dianostics and tried to copy to clipboard, but discovered that it (clipboard) does not exist in the new Windows, no way to copy and paste....going back to 3.5.
  2. I am not certain of how to shut off GPU rendering...don't know what that is...but every since I installed the 4.0, I have had all kinds of problems. I use a Windows 64bit upgraded 8.1. It is a new computer...I am sure this does not help...but I wanted you to know this 4.0 definitely is unstable or is somehow not installing as well as hoped. I will try to figure out what GPU rendering means and try to shut it off...if I cannot figure it out, I will go back to the 3.5 as it worked excellently. I wish I were technical enough to help, Rick. Thanks for the work you ll do.
  3. In 2010 I retired from Truck driving. I took up simple drawing as a means of relaxing. I started with the paint that came with my computer. As I saw all of the artwork and photomanipulations, I decided I wanted to learn. I tried most all programs availiable at the time...and thought it was beyond me....I stumbled upon pdn at a time I was ready to give up. Of all of the paint programs out there, this was the easiest for me to learn. I learned mostly by playing around with it. Now it is the only editor I use other than photoscape which I use to animate with. I love this program. Thanks to all who have made it and who keep it running for those of us who want to learn and to share our inner expressions laid out in art form to others.
  4. I looked for a place to send some money via paypal, I did not locate one here, I do not have much, but I want to help this site when I can. Is there a specific address where I can do so? I love this site and the software.. Thanks for everything!
  5. I have the newest version of paint.net....windows 7, 64bit....this is what I am getting in the loading errors window of pdn : 1 of 6 -------------- File: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\ColorMixer.dll Effect Name: ColorMixer.EffectPlugin Full error message: A mandatory update is available. 2 of 6 -------------- File: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\ColorToAlpha.dll Effect Name: ColorToAlpha.EffectPlugin Full error message: A mandatory update is available. 3 of 6 -------------- File: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\Curves+.dll Effect Name: pyrochild.effects.curvesplus.CurvesPlus Full error message: This plugin is incompatible with this version of Paint.NET. 4 of 6 -------------- File: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\Gradient Mapping.dll Effect Name: pyrochild.effects.gradientmapping.GradientMapping Full error message: This plugin is incompatible with this version of Paint.NET. 5 of 6 -------------- File: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\ShadowHighlight.dll Effect Name: ShadowHighlight.EffectPlugin Full error message: A mandatory update is available. 6 of 6 -------------- File: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\Smudge.dll Effect Name: pyrochild.effects.smudge.Smudge Full error message: This plugin is incompatible with this version of Paint.NET. Okay...I have pretty much looked everywhere before I posted this...so what next?
  6. http://www.dreamies.de/mygalerie.php?g=uwhcyran Two of these are chops. One of me and one of a friend, that I made as a Friday comment. The rest are 100% paint.net images. Most of the work that I do are animated, so I did not include them, as I used animation software after I created them. I started drawing in May of last year. I know that my work doesn't compare to the real artists here, but I am learning. I believe that I have followed the guideline rules...I certainly have tried to. Thanks to those who work so hard to make this software and site availiable to all!
  7. Still learning my way around here. :)

  8. I am still learning all of the features that this magnificent software has...I was wondering if an extrusion tool is somewhere in the future. BTW...thanks for all of the work you guys have put into this software. Whether or not one is in the works or not, you people are fantastic!
  9. I had a problem with my smudge tool suddenly gone from my software. I wrote about it in the troubleshooting forum. I received two replies very quickly. I now have a smudge tool...very important to me! Many thanks to Nightnurse79 and BoltBait. I did not know where else to post this thank you because the topic there was closed. But thank you both...a lot!
  10. I opened up my paint.net and discovered I have no smudge tool anymore. This is a major tool for me. I removed all of the software and downloaded the latest version, but I still have no smudge tool. Everything else is working perfectly. Any suggestions?
  11. As an absolute novice...this was very helpful. Thank you!
