How to start a fire with Paint.NET

Recommended Posts

Im new to all of this, & I have had NO formal COMPUTER EDUCATION / TRAINING what so ever (ON ANY PROGRAM). What I have learned on the computer over the past 5 years is what I could figure out on my own, PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH ME.

I find it easier to make fire & flames utilizing the DENTS plug-in set in the following way-


I use this on lines (or shapes or?ect.), keeping the base or center of the flame (bottom line) white, then yellow, then red, on a black background, the gradient tool and clouds plug-in is nice for this application as shown in the tut, but I think the dents plug-in works best.

What probably happend is that your picture was too long and you did not drag the gradient all the way to the bottom of the picture. What you could do...is use the :RectangleSelectTool: Selecting tool and select the middle portion then crop to selection :Crop: ..And all will be good :)
