@Rick Brewster Hello! I hope you are doing amazing! I wanted to reach out because I had some questions in regards to using Paint.net for designing clothing and mock-up designs such as hoodies, t-shirts, etc. my first question would be is it possible to screen print after designing using Paint.net and if so is it a certain resolution it needs to be to do this. Also, would I need to vectorize it first for the quality to be sufficient? Another thing I’m worried about is this program becoming discontinued after I became efficient with it. Worried about investing in something and it not being around long term. It such a beautiful software and I want it to stick around. My last question is do you think you will ever get it to become available on Mac? Thank you for your help!

Yes.

Not for a screen capture. Yes if you want to throw the results at a printer.

Unknown. What quality do you need? BTW: Paint.NET can't vectorize it.

Paint.NET has been going for 18 years. Relax.

@Ego Eram Reputo Hey! Thank you for replying to my questions I posted! I’m trying to get hoodies and t-shirts designed using this program but I’m not sure if this is possible. The reason i bring up vectorizing is because I may need to use a vector program instead to design clothing due paint.net being a raster program. But maybe I can just design in Paint.net then move it over to a vector program to trace the image. I’m going to screen printing picture designs onto hoodies and t-shirts. What’s you opinion?

I don't print a lot. When I do - I always use Paint.NET to construct the images. I've made a couple of games, and plenty of bits & bobs for things I've built.

 

Maybe if you give us the final image specs we can help you create a template that will match what you're trying to generate.
