I'm trying to double the size of the image, and I'm getting this message:

 

Application version: paint.net 4.1.6

I got there by Rectangle Selecting the image I want outlined >> Image >> Resize >> and changing Percentage to 200%
Did I do it incorrectly?  I also want me some sharp corners 🤠

What's the new size of the image when you change it to 200% ?

How much memory (RAM) does your computer have?

Is your Windows installation 32 bit or 64 bit?

Installed RAM= 4GB

 

With Windows and other programs using much of that, it is doubtful that you have enough memory to handle such a large image in Paint.NET.

I got the advice from @Ego Eram Reputo on this forum to double my image size to create an outline effect.  This was in place of the plug-in I got that has the Outline effect that I couldn't figure out.  I was getting inconsistent boldness around different parts of my image with no apparent rhyme or reason.  Turns out, I needed to mess with the Intensity in the Outline option.  I set it to 99 and all my problems went away!  Now, I have a bold outline 🤓!

@Ego Eram Reputo, I believe you!  Lol, I'm just a newb 🤓@Rick Brewster, I'm glad I read this now, because I'm sitting at a Starbucks, and was holding myself back from Hulking-out on my little tablet for the lag in almost half of my design strokes.  I see it from a logical place, now.  Effing, woosah, 😌.
