Equivalent for MS paint 'black and white mode'


Recommended Posts

What it says on the tin.

 

Is this possible in paint.net? 

I'm guessing I could use some plugins, and setup some custom brushes for the various gradients.

I have attempted the google search but only erroneous results.

 

Has anyone attempted this before?

At the moment I'm stuck with MS paint - win98.  Input would be appreciated.

I cannot recommend PaintDNet highly enough. Once you have it installed - the basic features should accomplish your task easily. Its when you add the plug-ins that you will be truly amazed and WOW˝d at what can be done.

Thanks, but I already have it installed.

Of course it is possible, but I'm afraid that your archaic Windows version is a serious problem. Windows 7 SP1 is the minimum requirement.

 

I'm running the windows 98 version of paint, not windows 98...

Strange! Why?

 

I don't know the "Black-and-White-Mode" of MS Paint, but there are some Plugins to reduce colors or make a black-white image.

From the image, it loos like it has some sort of bulit-in dithering mode. I can pretty much say that PDN will never have a native drawing mode like that. There are, however, plugins that will convert images to dithered two-color versions.

 

I'm not after a converter, so I guess I'll have to draw every image in paint. Then copy paste them into paint.net for use with layering which is a pain. But not a lot else I can do.

You can change the Fill and draw with the tools.

Thanks, this is what I was looking for.

Bit of a shame there is no freeform polygon tool natively available but I'll have to make do. 

I have found this but it does not compare.

I think @BoltBait's got the solution for you: it's a plugin called Floyd-Steinberg Dithering. Find it in his plugin pack: BoltBait's Pack 

 

Demo:

Very doubtful. Save a copy of the original!
