A couple elementary newbie type questions.


Recommended Posts

I want to paint over a photo but still see the photo behind it. Isn't there a way to set the percentage of the paintbrush from say 0 being invisible to 100 completely covering the photo? 

 

Also: Are there default gold/ bronze colors/ silver colors?

Yes, just change the Opacity in the Colors window.

Those are not colors, per se. You get a metallic look because of how light reflects off these materials.... Therefore, they can't be represented by solid colors.

Thanx y'all. The opacity should be easy/ simple enough. Even 4 me. But is there a hex for gold, silver, or bronze say? I get silver might be tricky because it comes somewhere between black and white with shine.

I'd love to extol the powers of Gradient Mapping ... but it doesn't like me; as all the crash logs in my folder testify to

 

 

@welshblue - I remember you saying this before.  I too used to have a problem with Gradient Mapping which made PDN crash a lot.  The solution for me was to thin out as many of my Plugins as possible until I found that it was caused by my Imgur Uploader Plugin and I had to remove it to stop GM'ing from crashing. 

 

Since then, and a few PDN updates, I was able to use Imgur Uploader again and the problem went away.  I think, then, that one of your Plugins is causing this and the only way to find out which one it is, is to skin down your Plugins and re-introduce them one-by-one.  Just a thought ;)

TBH I've thinned them out drastically this week and not tried GM since then so will have a play later.

The last time it crashed I was sooo close to the perfect copper that I kicked a kitchen chair.  Not recommended when you're barefoot ... wasn't worth the pain or the ear-ache :lol:

 

Just to show why i got frustrated

I can see why you got a bit miffed at the kicking-dirt.gif.541138967865d4d1276faf5f84ae70a3.gif computer for failing to do what you want.    But it will all get sorted , I'm sure  therethere.gif

When the prefect paint.net image is created, I will still be wondering "How they Do that?"- sigh☺️
