  1. Go to the menus under "File", then "Acquire", and finally select "From Scanner or Camera". A new dialogue box will then open for you to select your scanner. EDIT: I don't know why you needed to start a new thread on this. You could've told us initially how you were scanning the negatives. You did not mention that you were scanning by some other method versus through Paint.NET. You simply stated that you, "...can scan and preview an b/w negative" leaving us to assume that you were scanning through Paint.NET and for some unknown reason it (the scanned image) wasn't coming up on the canvas. But now your question tends to suggest that you weren't.
  2. I believe if you go in the menu under "adjustments", you can select invert colors.
  3. The only references I find to C4D refers to Cinema 4D. These forums are dedicated to Paint.NET. If you do a Google search you will find many links to C4D/Cinema 4D.
  4. Since you say this has just started happening, have you run the repair utility found in the Paint. NET directory in case something has become corrupted? Have there been any recent changes to your computer (newly installed programs or posibly deleted programs that have common/shared files)? Maybe try a restore to the system?
  5. Great spacescapes Yellowman, and the alarm clock is awesome. While on the subject of the alarm clock, like usual you demonstrate you've got a keen eye for detail - it's really an amazing piece.
  6. Great work Sasha. You did a great job on the puzzle, but even more so I like the 3D effect you've been able to put to most all of your work. I don't know why, but the fingerprints on the glass cube really made me smile. It was a great thought to add them almost as though someone left them on it after handling the cube.
  7. If you wish to make lines thicker that have already been drawn, read this: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/25775-best-way-to-increase-line-thickness-of-black-and-white-tif-schematic/ If you are using the line tool/curve tool, you can adjust the thickness while you are drawing it (you'll see the "nubs on the line when you release the mouse button) by changing the brush size from the pull-down menu as shown:
  8. It's not making them smaller, you're simply using images that are different sizes. When this occurs, Paint. NET should be asking you if you wish to expand the canvas. Most likely you're responding with yes and thus the canvas enlarges to accomodate the new larger layer and keeps your original picture at it'soriginal dimensions. My recommendation is to respond no, and then downsize the new larger image to more closely match the first. I recommend this because enlarging the other may distort it too much.
  9. You need to paste it onto a new layer. Once you do this, you won't see the checkerboard. Once you've copied it to the new layer, you can then merge the 2 layers together without it resulting in showing the checkerboard. From this point you can save it.
  10. I can't even fathom how a person can somehow feel justified in taking this sort of action. Maybe in his mind he felt justified in attacking and killing his own family members, but killing all the innocent kids who had nothing to do with whatever troubles he was facing, nor being any threat to him, is totally sickening and I just can't wrap my mind around the whole incident.
  11. I've been meaning to comment on this. I think it's a cool tutorial. I haven't yet had an opportunity to put my hand to the test on this, but this is certainly on my list to try. Congrats!
  12. Shadows of the heart is a bit dark for my personal preference, but that aside, reflecting on all the other aspects of the piece, I think it is nicely done.
  13. I loved the "glowing glossy" picture. I thought it was very well done. Great work!
  14. Great start to your gallery. They all appear very well done - especially for someone new to Paint.NET (I was forever forgetting to use AA Assistant - and still do sometimes) to clean-up some of my work. I can't wait to see more... and good luck on the puzzle piece, I hope you enjoy it.
  15. This forum is about Paint.net. You should contact someone directly relates to the software you are using to get help.
  16. Thank you all. I'm glad you enjoyed it. @Welsh: I owe it to the Kangaroo. With its almost human-like pose, it only seemed fitting to make him more so.
  17. I've never experienced this behavior before. Are your drivers current? Are you using wireless? If so, do you have fresh batteries? Are you on a laptop? If so, maybe your hand is is grazing the touchpad. I know my laptop's touchpad is super sensitive. I don't know of these are your problems or not but I'm just pointing out some things you may take a look at since you've not already said what you've checked.
  18. First, if you suggest that coders do this "only if they want", then what about the folks who still want to put it into a favorites submenu but can't because the coder didn't change the code? Second, let's assume that everybody re-codes (for the sake of argument), how many tutorials will also need to be re-written? When I've written tutorials I've intentionally provided screenshots to show the menu paths of where to find the plugin as the reader is following along. Certainly on my end all I'd have to do is to add a note at the beginning of the tutorial that if a reader installed the "favorites" version then all they need to do is go to their "favorites" sub-menu. But I would submit that for a newbie who is involved in a tutorial flipping back and forth between the tutorial and Paint.NET, it would be confusing. And what about tutorials that have been written, but the original author no longer frequents these forums and/or maybe have one posted offsite? There are a lot of issues to consider and I think as much as you think it will simplify things, I think the reverse will more likely be the result. You may disagree with this, but look at how much folks are already trying to do as little as possible and still expect that the program is going to do everything for them. People aren't interested in the basics, everything needs to covered by a plugin or some "quick" way to accomplish something. Likewise, you're just throwing another something into the cogs for folks to consider rather than simply moving forward with what lies ahead. ...just my simple opinion - I'm not trying to be condescending or insulting, I'm just expressing to look at everything and human nature. People want to simply move on and don't want confusion which I think this is going to do.
  19. Once you've flattened and closed Paint.NET you cannot recover the layers. The right method would be to either: 1.) First save as a .pdn file then save again in the format you originally desired. 2.) If you've first saved in the format of your choice which required you to flatten it, as long as Paint.NET is still open, you can go to the History pane and click on the process just before where it shows "flattened". This will undo it and you can then save in the .pdn format.
  20. Possibly. He says it "becomes white after cut". But, he also said in paint.net "it becomes good". Since I'm associate "cut" with Paint.net as opposed to simply posting to a webpage, it seems contradictory. Now, I could be entirely wrong because of his broken english, but my questions should further clarify what he's trying to say.
  21. Duplicate the cage layer. Once you've duplicated it, on the top one, erase the "background" (easier said than done with all the mesh lines). Place your image that you're inserting in between these layers.
