  1. Actually the heading is less informative than you think in that the term 'mess' does not describe a specific outcome. Since reading and writing GIF files is built into Paint.NET; you can 'mess' with a GIF file right after set up. I assume you mean working with animated GIF files. There is a filetype plugin that enables you to open animated GIF files and have each frame open as a separate layer. It also enables you to created a series of sequenced layers and save them as an animated GIF. https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/31629-animated-images/ https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/13454-animated-image-24-agif-apng/
  2. Try this: https://sourceforge.net/projects/flexxi-image-resizer/
  3. It works for me ~90% of the time. I check a short time ago to see if any of the files had a block or read-only attribute. So far no explanation has been discovered.
  4. @toe_head2001 & @Ego Eram Reputo I just tried to copy and paste some plugins from a ZIP folder into the Paint.NET>Effects folder and it was not permitted until I pasted them somewhere else first and then copy and paste to the Paint.NET>Effects folder.
  5. I thought that in Windows 10, the single executable of Paint.NET is extracted from the ZIP archive in the background. Thanks for the nfo. I have not heard of this.
  6. Relax! I don't know what you or others know until they tell me. More Power To You, Bro! 🙂
  7. @toe_head2001 Windows has been able to create and open compressed ZIP archives since the Vista version. You don't need a second party creation/extraction app.
  8. Here is a video on installing the free version of Paint.NET: (The part about extracting the executable file from the Zip archive can be simplified by just double clicking on the Zip folder and it will open then just launch the app setup.)
  9. You can add a filetype plugin to Paint.NET that will enable it to read and write PDF images: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/22863-portable-document-format-filetype-plugin-pdf/
  10. @ Edward I have looked at some of Etsy's requirements and I have not been able to find where an image file has to be 300 DPI. I can only find that it is recommended that the image be ~1500 pixels square. Can you provide a link to other requirements? DPI is for printing purposes. Since the PDF ask for size of output information (will it be a letter size or tabloid size) before conversion, all of the sampling values are added to the document before saving, therefore there is no area to setup DPI instructions. Since you are viewing the PDF on a monitor that typically has a resolution of 96, the document defaults to that. See the comments at this link: (I provided a relevant comment and link to this thread today. 🙂 ) Also check this out: http://blogs.adobe.com/contentcorner/2017/04/19/optimal-settings-to-create-print-ready-pdfs/
  11. One click toggling between Primary and Secondary colors already exist if the Color window is opened. Click on 1 selects the Primary Color Click on 2 selects the Secondary Color 3 indicates which is active https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/ColorsWindow.html
  12. I just installed it and looks "So fresh and so clean"! Good Job!
  13. It has been nearly a decade since David Atwell posted the "DPI and YOU - Understanding Resolution for Print and Web" information, yet many of the Paint.NET forum members are still out of the loop about this subject. Over the years I have seen postings for help about the need to save a 300 DPI for this, that, and the other reasons. DPI (Dots Per Inch) is only relevant for printing! My advice is to create your Paint.NET at least 1920 x 1080 for most purposes and worry about the DPI when running printer software! Those who work with photos need to realize the average DSLR is ~16 megapixels, which is ~4920 x 3264 pixel image sensor about the size of a postage stamp. Image sensor pixel size ranges from 1.1 microns in the smallest smartphone sensor, to 8.4 microns in a Full-Frame sensor and is not stored as dots but as data. The image data is converted to a JPEG file at a resolution of ~96 PPI (Pixels Per Inch). After that it is up to the printer how that image will be transfered to paper or vinyl and this is where DPI becomes relevant. Here is yet another video that I located that I hope will in the understanding of DPI vs PPI:
  14. and... I have learned that from earlier comments to this forum. I have also learned that you can copy most images from various browsers in Windows by using the 'Right Click & Copy'. I then 'Right Click & Paste' into a folder on the desktop that I label 'Internet Images'. I have also experienced the black backgrounds in the image icons alpha space for PNG and WebP images captured from Firefox and Opera.
