Hello,

 

I'd like to take the image of the Christmas lights and make it conform to the curve of the green line. I've been banging my head against the wall trying to get it to work.

 

Hopefully, that's enough info.

 

Thank you!

You can draw a bulb light and then copy it to the clipboard and then paste it over the green line on an empty layer. I drew a red bulb.

You can also change the color of each bulb using the color adjustments provided by Paint.net.

You can also move the light bulbs from your original image.

Greetings theHydra,

 

You may have success in your endeavor if you divide your creation of the green path line into segments and use the Line /Curve tool.

Example:

Maybe in a future update to Paint.NET it will be possible to and additional nodes to the Line / Curve Tool so that you can make it better conform to a longer or more irregular path.

There are a couple of plugins that allow for the creation of multi-node line / curve paths.

Here are links to them:

Nice job on the video, Pixey....I just learned from it that you don't have to click on "copy" when cutting something to paste it onto another area.
