  1. Thanks everyone for assisting! From your feedback I should be pretty happy then with what I've been able to do via warp. Have a lovely 2013! Deborah:-)
  2. Hi all this is the image that I'm wanting to flatten and turn into a stencil actually... if that helps... really the closest I could get was using the warp but it still did not turn out very smooth so I thought you all might have a brilliant idea :-) Your assistance is greatly appreciated!
  3. Thanks JerkFight for the compliment! Much appreciated! Deborah:-)
  4. Can anyone help? I have a picture of a vase which of course has the shadow of a 3 dimentional object as well as the warp in the image caused by the image wrapping around the round vase. Is there a way that I can "unwrap" the image from the vase and to have the picture appear flat? I tried manually doing it with warp grid but it was a lot of work and did not look very smooth... Thanks much for your assistance. D:-)
  5. At night nurse, I like the color of your wood floor! Thanks:-) Sasha, that gives al kinds of additional ideas thanks!
  6. Goonfella... I like your wood with high contrast and light color it looks shiny... Perhaps next will be how to "carve" wood... That will be fun...
  7. Goon fella, the YouTube is working. I have tested on windows and Mac. EER did not know that as the terms said it was open source. I will now load plugins from this forum then. Troll what is your point you want to throw good content off the board just because I have never posted? I use this forum all of the time for help. I do not believe this is repeated content. I thought it helpful to others. I took significant time to figure it out, write it well and produce a video. Is this community really that ungrateful and bullying?
  8. DrewDale hahaha! I'm laughing:-) Way cool! So fast! I was thinking it was already posted and what a bummer that I spent so much time figuring it out :-) Very cool wood :-)
  9. DrewDale... where was that when I searched the forum for wood? That would have saved me a lot of time... I would not have bothered... Oh well... WelshBlue I added the URL to the plugins... Cheers.
  10. This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it I was creating a collage with a picture of a table and wanted to find some wood to collage. After a long search, I finally decided to create my own. Here are the instructions to create your own wood using Paint.net and a Video that will show you how . You can watch a video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTcdqbGMwWU 1. Create a new image 8 wide by 14 inches tall. You can vary the image, you will just want to make sure it is taller than wide as you will be stretching the image width wise for the final image. 2. Fill in the background with black. 3. Use the gradient tool to create random bubbles on the background. Note the settings for the colors in the dialog. Note that the secondary color black is transparent. 4. From the File menu, select Effects>Render>Clouds to create more irregular shapes. 5. From the File menu, select Effects>Render>Bars to create the grain of the wood. 6. From the Adjustments menu, select Posterize to create the growth rings in the wood. 7. From the Effects menu, select Photo>High Pass to create the final wood effect. 8. From the Image Menu, select Canvas Size to resize the canvas so that you can stretch the image so that it will appear more like natural wood. You will want to stretch the current image about 4 times the current width for it to look nice. So if you followed the instructions so far, increase the width to 32 and stretch the existing image to the canvas size. 9. Now it is time to color the wood. From the Layers menu, select Add layer. Fill that layer with a color of your choice. Orange works for a standard wood color. It will completely fill the layer that is okay. 10. Adjust the layer properties, try the multiple, color burn, reflect and xor settings to see different effects. 11. Save your work! You are done! You now have your wood!
