  1. Thanks Vivian for the How Tos . Most interesting, informative and a great video presentation. Fast enough to keep it moving along and yet slow enough to actually see what you're saying /doing, unlike so many on the UTube that race along at warp speed with out a sniggle of explanation as to what is going on. Again, Thank You Well Done.
  2. DrewDale As I am always out repairing the phaser canon , washing out the Grezxioen Tubes or some such worthless activity, I was remiss in not remembering you birthday. SORRY! here's a belated wish for you
  3. Egad! I'm and idiot 😲, I failed t mention that "Survey Scout..." (up there ☝️ somewhere) is a photo manipulation using Creative Commons images from Pixabay.com.

  4. I throw myself into the breech, once again, ol' friends. I Give You...
  5. Spencerlancs You may want to check on the file extension of your drawing . Paint.net is automatedly a .pdn and if you save it as a .jpg or you cutter changes it into a .jpg then the transparency will be removed and replaced by white. There you have my entire fount of knowledge, or drip if you prefer.

    The only thing that I see is the awful back-----Oh, just read All the words🙃 Seriously, Very nice, the details are very clean, as is the spinning seal, all are crisp and clear. The wood treatment is beautifully done. If I may, could you review the shadows of the metal legs from the right side. I seem to not to see a shadow from the shelf above either. I feel as if there should be a corresponding shadow, of the shelf, along the shelf surface as well. Of course you have the real thing there and if my question is contrary to your real world view then you may feel free to tell me "go get -very full" (of food?) I think the expression is.😉
  7. Finding on the internet picture #1 was, to me, a powerful graphic of what was, a vision of the massive struggle by firemen struggling to battle the fires after the earthquake of April 18, 1906 in San Francisco California. I was struck by the possibility's of this picture and have tried to convey the monumental effect and efforts that were in play during this historical event.

  8. Hope you can retrieve even just the thumbnails. Then perhaps when you remake the new version of the original files it will go a bit faster and a little easer. p.s. You are not the first person this has happened to, don't ask me how I know. Good luck and Welcome to Paint.net

    OH,OH, look at that! A time piece to tell the time with. Well done with the changes both subtle and substantive. You may now go on the project Next, with a happy heart--well something like that. 😉
  10. Pixey you are amazing, a word to oft bandied about, but in your case more than true and yet still slightly inadequate. I am in awe of your works. You do give me so many ideas to strive for. Thank you. ------I will now return to my usual silly-ness currently in progress on another channel-----
  11. While all of these worthy answers/suggestions/ideas are totally with in the spirit of help and cooperation found on Paint.NET, not at all surprising. But I would humbly suggest that instock reach out to the teacher and offer to help her/him with understanding How To Scan a page more successfully. I would venture that help would bring joy to all the students involved today and in future.
  12. NOTICE: I am not making any clams or judgements; this example is for the enjoyment of fun loving PDN-ers everywhere.🙄 Please do not think it applies to you , it is obviously for "the Others" on this forummm.😄
  13. I thought I posted this yesterday---but with my luck it probably got sent to my wife--sigh p.s. 100% pdn of course.....😉
  14. Well after all the holiday festivity ---yer welcome.
  15. Well, you are right. Driving a Kenworth and hauling logs on the ice road is what I do----in my mind😄. But never one to shatter the dreams of my favorite Swedish friend, ----- OK, OK, My only Swedish friend,. In reality, I am an extremely wealthy multi-national tycoon with private yachts, planes, exotic cars that even the sultans of Arabia can not afford, with vast estates scattered across the globe, OR I'm just a silly ol' guy that has a good normal-like life. That I have come to appreciate what I do have. Dang it, you made me get serious. It must be your smile or something. So, while the Times are what they are we all will just have to “Adapt, Persevere and Overcome” as I learned way back in my short lived military days. I shall leave you in peace, for a bit Var dig själv. Världen dyrkar originalet. –Ingrid Bergman
  16. You do know I have almost worn the arrow point of me little cursor completely out----tiring to pick up the corner of the drop down menu, to see what was wrong with the toast. THEN, finally, I realized out what you meant---Doh 🤣

    WHEEW ! Thank You, for receiving my thoughts in the spirit intended--got'a admit I wasn't worried in that regard ----until right as I clicked Send 😧 ..."the clock case took about me about twenty minutes...." 😉 Oh sure rub it in😄 ..."finish as a antique style mantle clock..." Its well on the way already.
  18. Not being totally sure of things that have power switches and do things with "0"s and "1"s all the while whirring and so on. I thought to use this forum to note I have changed/edited one of my Christmas SOTW entry's. Point of this note is for those who were so very kind, giving me "likes". I hope the revision is also worthy of your previous responses. Thank You.

    ipswichmanc Very Well Done! The wood grain, brass also the polished metal dial great stuff. As you have said this was a work in progress. If I may, a personal thought, I noticed, the main highlight appears coming from in front and elevated over the viewers left shoulder. Then there is a slight shadowing from the II diagonally to the VII. Then the arc (III to VI) along the outer edge of the dial is another lightened area. Giving me the impression that the dial/clock face is not flat but has a slight wave in it. It seems that the wood has not gotten the same highlighting design, as the face, in fact it seems to be slightly reversed from the dial's highlights, Also was confused by the 360° shadow at the base (i.e. against the "wall"). Please know that I really like your work here. So much has been very well done and is most impressive (my jealousy knows no bounds) Feel perfectly free to tell me to Bla,Bla,Bla and so on with my ideas. Respectively,
  20. Paint . Net 100% you betcha ,
