jfe Posted November 3, 2008 Share Posted November 3, 2008 I am brand new to Paint.net. I take a lot of photo's of machinery and equipment as an inspector. I annotate my findings directly on the pictures. The old program I used was not very flexible. I like many of the features of Paint.net, but I can't figure out how to make a "text box". The text feature just places the text on the picture, which is great sometimes, but not always. I need to create a feature where the background of the text is a white box (which I could sometimes move around). Same for circles rectangles. Sometimes I need them to be "transparent" and other times I need them to be filled with a color of my choice (usually white). Is there an easy way to do this? I have already figured out that I could layer in a white box, and then write on top of it, but that is too many steps. Any shortcuts?
