The Introduction Thread


Recommended Posts

Hey everybody, FirmWare here. I've been using Paint.NET since about July last year, i used to use Ulead Photoimpact, but it was too basic. I recently tried out photoshop CS3, and thought nothing of it, so i decided to stick with the open source goodness of PDN. I used GIMP now and then, but found it way too complex, and compared to the ease of use and just-makes-sense-ness of PDN, stopped using that too.

So when i'm not making graphics, i'm either practicing my C++, foruming, or gaming. I guess you could say i'm a creative person, as i love to draw, write and code, but my musical talents suck.

So that's a brief history of my life i guess, and i hope to learn loads and help out here.

Hello, FirmWare. Welcome to the forum! I look forward to your contributions to this community.

Maybe if you studied C# a bit instead of C++, you could add to the plugin list... :P

I agree.

I joined a roughly a year ago. I really dislike my username. I also seem to not be very memorable, probably because it is hard for my to draw because I always use a laptop. Hopefully I will be able to get a Pen & Tablet so I can draw better. I also went for probably 10 monthes of not using or going to pdn forums.

So I noticed when I locked your thread in GDQ. ;-) Welcome back!


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Hi konkust! Welcome to the forum, I hope you'll enjoy your time! :D

Just one last thing to say - beware, I am the Emperor of unfunny jokes! (These jokes are awful and can cause side effects after being exposed to them!) :wink:

Ello everyone. I've been using PDN for about 6 months now, and only joined the forum roughly a month ago, (wow this really sounds like AA or something) when I decided that I just had to make cursors and icons, and needed a program for it. So I thought hmm.. I wonder if anyone has made one for PDN since it's open source and tada, here I am. I've just recently crawled out of the Pictorium and the tutorials, where I've been lurking, learning new things.

I'm 21, almost 22, I have a mean, but gorgeous 3 year old daughter, and I live in Ohio. You can call me Robin or shadows, or whatever strikes your fancy. Whenever I join forums, I'm almost always asked about my user/nickname. I know, its a bit odd. It's actually the title of a poem I wrote, that was published, and I've been using it on the internet since I was about 13 or so because I thought it was kinda catchy. ;)

Well I suppose that's all there is to know! Nice to meet you all and welcome to the new users!

Reminds me oddly of my best friend, somehow. He tells the most amazingly-unfunny jokes you may ever hear (unless you can come out with more?). They're most oftenly so amazingly-unfunny that they're hilarious.

I'm Mitchell, by the way. I hail from Auckland, New Zealand, but am currently a permanent residence of Victoria, Australia. I'm fifteen years of age, completing my first two units of Specialist Mathematics and first two units of Business and Finance (they're probably different categories/subjects elsewhere, but that is what they're called here). I started using PDN on Sunday, and recently sought out the help of some tutorials posted around on this site - gladly taking the steps and stuffing them some place probably already cluttered with short-term memory I barely ever use. Useless knowledge.

Hopefully, this doesn't become one of those useless obsessions and I finally get to do something with it. :]

I have a beautiful fourteen year old sister, and wonderful parents who provide for me. I am glad when I say that I do not have problems - other than the mental one I'm supposed to be seeking help for (narcissism). I know I should not complain about how bad I feel sometimes - because I obviously have everything I could ever want - but more often than not, I'm open about how I feel and don't really care what you think.

Hopefully you all understand when I say that I am barely ever narcissistic/self-absorbed on the internet, and you are all saved from my fury. There's no need to be afraid of me. :]

Hey! :)

New member on board!

I discovered Paint.NET just about a month ago, sort of by accident.

Quite a happy accident, I must say! :mrgreen:

Now I have been browsing this forum ever since and learned a lot about the program. Tried some of the tutorials. And having so much fun!

(Though it's not that good at all for finishing my masters... :roll: )
