This technique to do just that might need a epilepsy warning.

3. ????


On 3, I don't know how to save selection in Paint.NET. If you can do that, then you can do this. The first 2 steps are correct.

If someone could figure this out, then this can be done in Paint.NET. The Transparent 25 Fill in Krita has black dots, and transparent background.

I figured it out.


1. Create a new layer.

2. Fill the new layer with Percent 25 and erase background.

3. Duplicate the filled new layer.

4. Create the cut shape by erasing areas you want in the top-most layer. Hide other layers.

5. Select the dots on the this layer.

6. Hide the top layer, and reveal the other layers.

7. Erase selection on the middle layer. Then repeat step 5-6.

8. Erase selection on bottom layer.
