  1. Well I appreciate the responses - I was saving the file correctly, re-created the issue on the test PC. However, you're right, it seems Adobe Acrobat will try to strip out the white on a transparent JPG and make a total mess of it all. I then made a non transparent, black on white signature and it worked a treat. Problem with that is, our solution requires a single file for users, for both MS Word and Adobe, not that this is the fault of Paint.NET - so we may need to continue with the current solution of ImageMagik or perhaps I could add a single, white pixel to a transparent signature, giving Adobe /something/ to strip out, so it doesn't ruin the rest of the PNG. Either way solution found - thanks so much guys. Sorry I didn't test deeper, been very busy with more work coming in with Corona virus. Good luck.
  2. Ok fair call - this is a work build - perhaps my Paint.NET is out of date or Adobe - I'll try re-creating it on a spare VM here.
  3. I'm a little annoyed by this reply but so be it, no big deal I'm not completely stupid - did anyone here *actually try what I said*? I'm definitely saving as PNG file. I am saving in Auto-Detect mode Yes you can see the transparency in the save as dialogue box. The results are identical. (yes, I screwed up discussing transparent JPG - ignore that at this point) The resulting file, from Paint.NET, continues to be entirely incompatible with Adobe Acrobat. So can someone else recreate / test?
  4. I've been singing the praise of this app for a long time. I tried making some transparent PNGs to be imported into Adobe Acrobat to use as signatures for our staff (Covid19 and all, working from home, etc etc) When I import a transparent JPG, made by Paint.NET it works fine. https://i.imgur.com/gn0VLgf.png When I import a transparent PNG made by Paint.NET I get this https://i.imgur.com/DpRzEyZ.png Normally I'd point my finger, straight at Adobe, not Paint.NET - but some other crappy dos based package my boss found has worked flawlessly at creating a transparent PNG. (Converts a JPG, into a transparent PNG and the resulting PNG, works fine in Acrobat) So what's the deal, is Adobe requiring a malformed PNG which ImageMagick complies with some weirdo bug or is Paint.NET not quite forming a perfect transparent PNG? (again, traditionally, I'd defer to Paint.NET always bein correct) All 3 files attached for your own testing. (I can produce the 3 files if it will help)
  5. Hey all, I tend to take a heap of screenshots for documentation and then just dump them into Paint.NET I have a heap of memory, it generally is very very rare that it will crash. I realise I should save, it's entirely my fault- but now and then I might get power loss (or in the case this week, some idiot unplugging my computer to test my power points...) None the less, curious if the application could write out say ~tempfile01.pdn ~tempfile02.pdn ~tempfile03.pdn and what have you, depending on how many files you have open? This may exist, but I've never seen it before? Be nice even if it just wrote every 10 minutes (!) Any thoughts on this?
  6. Thanks gents, I will take a peek at both of these. For some reason I thought it wouldn't be (too hard) to do.
  7. I have an odd request. I've defined a shape with the selection tool. https://imgur.com/3mPsFDd I would like to now paste an item into this shape and a plugin resizes and shapes the item weirdly to fit. I know it's an odd request. Here see this cartoon. https://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-cartoon-person-image12066721 That is a similar shape to the item I've highlighted in image 1, make that squish in? I could rotate it and it would very weirdly morph as I spin it. Does this make sense? In a more simpler sense, if I had a perfect square box and put inside a circle, the circle would be 'pulled into the shape' of a box. Is this possible? I imagine there's some practical uses, although I want to use it for comical effect.
  8. Hello, I've been using this app for ages, quite happy with it. I feel like one of the weaker functions is the rotate / zoom tool. I can click the small 'ball' and drag it - but it's particularly aggressive in how it moves. I want it on a perfect horizontal plane, just make the left size of the image 'zoom out' (get smaller) and the right side of the image get larger - and I'd like to do it in very fine increments and DEAD even - no up or down tilt, I've managed to line that up right. How can I do this? because apparently I need to manipulate not 1 but 2 numbers (??) the second one down and the 3'rd one down. Sorry to be critical, it's a great app but this particular function is not ideal to work with.
  9. I want something similar to Prisma or Painnt (I just installed this from the Windows store, cool but app has bugs) Is there a filter for Paint.net which will do this stuff? Prisma can produce stuff like this https://kt-media-knowtechie.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/prisma-app.jpg https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRWWjo2PKSrgwyBqribnjCs8-Br_0eBClTtLSplMk0W7lCVgVIo Painnt can do similar etc https://software.thaiware.com/upload_misc/software/2017_01/images/12913_170117101856mR.jpg Prisma requires talking back to a server and ios, that's awful and Painnt wants a sub, which I guess would be fine if it wasn't so buggy. Is there either an alterntive app or a plugin for Paint.NET that comes close?
  10. CTRL-SHIFT-G would act same as CTRL-H CTRL-SHIFT-H would act same as CTRL-G Is it redundant? yes. Is it standard to reverse some procedures with shift, yep. I definitely don't think it would work "better" than what's there if you removed the G option, I'm simply suggesting reversing feature as standard. If you had a hotkey which was just "shrink image 25%" as CTRL-I, I would expect that CTRL-SHIFT-I would enlarge image 25% It's simply the standard, if you don't want to add it, that's fine. I miss the rotate menu in PSP5 unfortunately, I found it faster to work with, hence trying to improve rotation in P.N
  11. I'm not suggesting a custom key, I'm suggesting that it be added officially.
  12. I've asked for a few things and sadly been shot down. CTRL H = Rotate. Love to rotate the opposite direction, simply by holding SHIFT (the Windows standard,.... ALT-TAB vs ALT-SHIFT-TAB CTRL-F6 vs CTRL-SHIFT-F6 (Firefox:) CTRL-TAB vs CTRL-SHIFT-TAB) ..... That's pretty much it. Thanks
  13. Sorry I have no idea how to use that? I wish i could import it into Red ochres plugin, because it's (mostly) really nice. How do I use your code?
