A Paint.NET tutorial ebook?

Recommended Posts

A while ago there was a discussion of a Paint.NET commercial book that would include much content written for it specifically, however, the project went stale. There have also been many attempts to create a universal plugin pack, however, the issue of credit meant few authors gave permission and attempts were eventually cancelled.

However, I don't think the same problem will occur with tutorials, although the only contact plugins normally have with the author is with installation, tutorials have to be read to be used, and thus it would be trivial to mark each tutorial with the author's name clearly, and it would be hard not to see this every time someone wants to follow the tutorial.

If I were to create a freely downloadable e-book of Paint.NET tutorials, would you give permission to have yours included?

I don't know that any of mine are worthy, but you have my full support regardless.

It's an excellent idea Simon.

Though I didn't write any tutorials, I think that it would be a good idea. That way, users will be able to look through the table of contents and find what they need in a quicker manner. You have my vote. :wink:
