markalan Posted November 1, 2008 Share Posted November 1, 2008 I've been learning about paint.net for a week. I have no background in design, drawing or anything else that would give me experience with a program like this. I'm starting at the very beginning. I have read the rules for the forum, searched etc, and still haven't found answers. I'm building a city on my railroad. I need to make signs for the front on my buildings and their windows. I can find images via Google such as: To answer my own question, I can use paint.net to resize sign images, flip them to make two sided signs and crop them as needed. But, I would like to do two other things and my searching and reading has not provided answers. Perhaps, I don't even have enough knowledge to search correctly or find where to read. First question--Is there a way to correct perspective? Photos of signs are not always taken straight on. Can I adjust the image so they look as if they were. For example, can this be straightened so it could be used as a sign? The Rotate/Zoom command under layers doesn't quite do it. With this image the top and bottom still converge towards the left. SOLVED! More work resolved this question. Second question--Is there a way to create transparent text with a white background or text in outline form with a color within the outline? (Using a text editor I know how to create colored text with a white background but not transparent text. And, I could paint by hand but using the computer and printing on transparency sheets would be much quicker and more accurate.) This is an example of what I'm trying to obtain. I hope these questions aren't too basic and reflect excess ignorance on part. Thank you, markalan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
