  1. Enjoying The Repair Shop on Netflix. Awe-inspiring to watch professional fixers restore antiques, priceless heirloom, and treasures back to life. Some of the genuine reactions from patrons are gut-wrenching, in a good way.
  2. Io on Netflix. 2/10. Started off really well but fell off the cliff. Plodding pacing...by the middle act to the end, I was ready for the movie to end.
  3. One thing I may have discovered by accident was how the opacity of the color appears to affect how much the eraser remove pixels from the image. When I was working on my Country House, I had left the color black at 25, and noticed the eraser took a long time to remove pixels. Then when I ramped it up to 255, the pixels were rapidly removed from the images. Had this been part of the eraser's ability?
  4. Not really. The term is most likely "Photo Bashing." This is Matte Painting. No...I don't have any painting skill.
  5. Thanks to everyone who has commented on the final 2019 piece. New for 2020 and new challenge for me, matte painting, and I present to you Country House Matte Painting.
  6. @Creed31, you could also try Fibonacci Fill plugin. I realize it will not generate random rectangles you want, but if you think outside the box for a bit, you could use magic wand to select a rectangle generated by the Fibonacci Fill plugin, copy it, and paste it on a transparent layer. It would be worth exploring.
  7. I think I figured out why the "closed" hand remain stuck as closed. While keeping the MMB depressed and scrolling up or down, the "closed" hand remain stuck. I have included the video that demonstrates this behavior. I have only noticed it by happenstance in 4.2.8. I cannot recall if this was an issue prior to current version. Here are my computer specs whilst bearing in mind I am utilizing Parallel running on top of iMac.

  8. @Rick Brewster, I have noticed lately how when using the MMB (Middle Mouse Button) to pan when zoomed in, after a while, the closed hand becomes "stuck" in closed hand even when switching tools, it stays stuck. By accident, I found that if I press the ESC key, it release the closed hand. I don't think it is related to what Pixey or the bug that was reported associated with the space bar. I just thought I would share what I have experienced.
  9. Rick, this is a bit of an aside topic from the OP question, but for the drop down list of font size, would it be possible to replace the drop down list with slider? The slider can start at default font size of 10 and then user can adjust the size with the slider.
  10. While I may get in trouble for responding to a thread that is dead (read the rules on necroposting by the way), I have a tutorial that shows you how you can separate foreground object from the background. Look at the link below my signature.
  11. Yesterday, the wife, the daughter and her life-long best friend, and myself went to the movie theater to watch Jumanji 2. I rate it 7/10. I was hoping there would be laugh out loud moments as the first one, but it was not quite as hysterical. However, I am especially impressed with *checks IMDB* Karen Gillan who was clearly the lead actress in the film, and it displayed her range as an actress. I thoroughly enjoyed The Rock and Kevin Hart's bromance and their bickering that reflects the characters they are emulating. In the first film, The Rock and Kevin Hart played two angry high schoolers who felt one had wronged the other. In the second film, it was aged men embittered over some personal loss. What left me a bit disappointed about Jumanji 2, though, was I hoped they would have followed up on comments made by Jack Black (who is hysterical and able to pull off different embellishment of the characters) and Kevin Hart (who appeared to have been a bit low key than usual) on exploring the how behind Jumanji's mythology. They wanted to explore how Jumanji is able to pull people into the game and make people take on the game' avatars. This was never explored in the film. However, without spoiling the movie, I think they have left open a possibility to make a 3rd movie. I would like to see Kevin Hart featured and taking the lead the way Karen Gillan did in this film.
  12. Enjoying watching The Repair Shop on Netflix. Amazing to watch how artists and experts are able to restore priceless heirlooms to near pristine conditions. They are right about one thing - we do live in a world where everything is disposables to the refuse.
  13. Have you tried and look through the Plug-In and look for those you are describing? There are some that might work for you.
  14. I really like this one. It's very calming to look at. Seem you have a knack for creating minimalistic abstract style.
  15. Not to hijack lynxster's gallery, but I would love to see what you have created. In fact, I am sure others would agree with me in encouraging you to open up your own gallery.
  16. What you are asking for is batch processing, and I am sorry to say that Paint.NET does not support batch processing. However, there are free alternatives out there such as Infraview.
  17. This happened to me when I was having trouble with the Brush Factory not opening in the extended monitor window on my end, and when I reported it, I remember you trying to help me get that fixed. Once Joshua released another version, that problem disappeared. I was going to post my own thoughts anyway. I was planning to add a line where this would be up to the plug-in programmers to add those options, and they probably don't want to go through that trouble. It is not easy to add a few lines of code just to make you happy and BoltBait confirmed it. As I stated earlier, it is just easier to click and drag the window of the Effect, Adjustment, or plug-in windows to tweak with the setting. It is second nature and I don't think about it at all. If that bothers you, then...¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
  18. Do you have a particular plug-in that you want to do that? Off-the-top of my head, only one that I can think of that does reseed would be the default Cloud effect.
  19. As a long-time user of PDN, I say, "Nah." Just click and drag, it is already 2nd nature to me.
  20. @Vagabondi has inspired me to do another double exposure (which took me all afternoon because I was struggling with the technique) after a conversation in her gallery, so thank you for the idea. Stocks used: Man, City Street, and Birds. Thank you, Maggie. Thanks, man. Thank you! Thank you!
  21. Wow, I didn't think the hummingbird was a good one as I was trying to make it look like the hummingbird was coming out of the plastic thing. The other one that I called Mysterious was trying to create a movie-style poster. I will certainly try and make more things.
  22. You must be referring to this? It was an experiment to see if I could achieve the double exposure technique in PDN that is easy to do in Photoshop or Gimp. It wasn't that easy, requiring some thinking and tinkering. I think I'll do another double exposure to see if I remember how I did it.
