Can I do Layout and Design?

Recommended Posts

Hello, rainshine.

Sure, you can use Paint.NET for print work! When creating a new document (File > New..., Ctrl+N, or the New icon ( :FileNew: ) in the Toolbar), notice that you may specify the size of the document according to inches or centimeters, and adjust the resolution (pixels/dots per inch/centimeter).

If you would like some precision in your layout creation, I would suggest enabling the rulers, which are quite similar to Photoshop's, and can be enabled via View > Rulers or the Rulers icon ( :Rulers: ) in the toolbar.

Unfortunately, Paint.NET does not have any Guide system yet, but this grid making plugin might be helpful: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=4879. Also, check out the Align Object plugin: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=4900—very useful as well.

v An excellent open–source strategy game—highly recommended.
