I assume this is also available on paint.net, but I cannot find it.


There isn't. If you have a new image, you have automatically a white background and can add text directly on it or in a new, transparent layer.


Or if you want just a kind of white "shadow" around the text characters, use a plugin like Outline Object or Drop Shadow.




You could also use Boltbait's Meme Maker.

Hello Ronald. Welcome!


Paint.net works quite differently to MS paint. The technique you're looking for is layers. A good introduction can be found here https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/WorkingWithLayers.html (I can recommend reading the online documentation)


You will need to write your text on it's own layer, then add a layer underneath to hold the white background.


If you have trouble, please ask. :)

 I will firts make a complete white layer, write text on it, and copy the part I Need to an other layer.


Thanks again for your replies.


Better to do this:


1.  Open PDN

2.  Make a New Layer - which will be transparent - add your Text here.

3.  Use one of the methods @IRON67 mentioned.

4.  Decide if you want the first layer, the background layer, to be a different color, or just keep it transparent by unchecking the background and then

      flatten your image

Tip:  save to PDN if you want to edit it in future.  Once you flatten to .png, or jpg, etc, your work will be gone.
