Recommended Posts

Make sure you use search. Here's a tutorial that will help

Cutting Out Images the Easy Way v2.

Cut out your pics and then paste them into a background like that city you have there.

If you want to understand Paint.NET better, there are 3 things I can tell you:

1. Look over the Help File (F1 while in PDN)

2. Mess around in PDN!

3. Check out the tutorials

Once you get a feel for things tutorials will start making more sense.

Okay, I'll do them, And I'll tell you if I get more comfortably using Paint.net, Because, I am new at this, So I'll just mess around and try to get things right, Thanks for the advice..

The post above probably has crappy art.. Just look past that

Honestly, even though the men are a bit stretched vertically, I think this collage looks better than your friend's - as far as cut outs go. Very nice and clean lines.

Now I would work on the text. Check out this tutorial, as well as this one. They might help you get some better text effects.

If I were you, I wouldn't save your pictures as .GIFs because they lose a lot of quality (you see all of those little dots everywhere on your pic?). Next time, or if you kept the layered .PDN file, save your picture as a .PNG or.BMP because those don't lose quality over time.

Hope I am of help

Wow, You have been the most helpful, I'm gonna check out the text tutorials, And I realized the .Gifs things, From now on I save it is .PNG but, I did actually take those pictures from photobucket :oops: but it doesn't matter, If I had more time I would have made my own, But I didn't. But thanks for the advice/help I'll be checking out the tuts soon!

I looked at both of them..

1. I do not want to download any plugins, Because my computer is stuffed, And If I add anything else it will freeze, (I gotta delete some stuff)

2. They were kind of confusing, The First one was confusing, And the second you need to download about 3 plugins..

Any help with the font....?

Honestly, plugins are soo small of a file size - I don't think they would have too much of an effect on your computer. (you're looking at kbs)

What would you like to know about fonts? Here's a tutorial :P that might help with installing them, if you're not sure how. A good site to get them from is Dafont. You can get a bunch of free ones there.

Regarding the tutorials: I know, the users try to be newbie-friendly when writing them, but my best advice to tell you is just to mess around in Paint.NET until you get a feel for where tools/ whatever else are. If you look under the Newbie Playground section of the Tutorials section, you should definitely get a good start on get oriented with Paint.NET.

P.S. Oh - and try not to discredit others by calling their art yours :|

Well, I actually just used their pictures in the collage, I didn't take their exact picture, Also, I don't actually know what I need to learn about fonts, I know nothing about fonts, I'm new to this, I just use whatever font there is there, Is there anything I should know about fonts?

Oh, ok, I thought you just ripped their pic :oops:

Well, fonts aren't very complicated to learn, as far as I can tell. Different fonts convey different moods.

A font like this, personally, denotes a classy feel

While a font like this is much grungier and dirty

http://www.dafont.com/district.font

You use fonts to convey different moods and styles.

Pretty basic, right?

Hey chris welcome to the forum.

I see that nab has answered most of your questions. I would like to quickly say that you should save your work as .png. It holds the best quality.

;)

Yes, So I've heard, LoL, But, I seen the quality with .Gif, and .PNG, There is a huge difference, Thats what I'm gonna start doing from now on..
