Brush and paint effects


Recommended Posts

I've been a member of this forum for some time, primarily as a reader, because I'm usually the guy that's learning from you others.

But today I wanted to share a sweet little find that satisfied my recent need for an airbrush effect that I'm certain some of you will agree is highly useful.

I love Paint.Net and use it for every project I work on. But I recently had a project come up that required a LOT of airbrush and pencil-like effects. No other way around it. I did not want to buckle down and go with any other program now that I'm so familiar with this one. What to do?

Well I'd had a free version of ArtRage 2.5 that does some really sweet painting effects. Its airbrush and several other features are only enabled in the paid version. I figured heck, it's $25.00 and I need to at least try.

Was I ever surprised. Not only did the airbrush prove to be superbly accurate but I found YOU CAN WORK YOUR LAYERS BACK AND FORTH as PNGs, between Paint and ArtRage, with no problems at all !http://raoulwidman.wordpress.com/

So don't get me wrong here, Paint.Net rocks and it's my chief tool. But this means you don't have to keep bugging Rick Brewster about brushes. Definitely worth the 25 bucks

Hi ! Thanks. (I am guessing you mean search in the application's "Paint.Net Search.." selection in the Help dialog.? When I do I see numerous forum threads on the topic.

Hmm. Though I'm fairly proficient now in navigating these applications I am in no way a code geek. So while I can manage to install plugins, I certainly couldn't write or hack one !

That seems to be yet up an out there in the realm of the uber-geek.

Right now I'm using the WACOM Medium Bamboo Fun tablet.

One of the programmable buttons shown instantly switches you between applications, so that's what I currently use.
