In the color window, select black for your primary color, then select black for your secondary color. Change the Alpha for the secondary color to 0. Select the gradient tool :GradientTool: and draw a radial gradient from the center of your image to the edge. If the gradient comes out backwards, just right-click on one of the gradient's nubs.

Is that what you want?

BTW, there are better ways to do this, but this is a simple, "built-in to Paint.NET" way.

Here is few simple steps to achieve what you are looking for.

Step 1:

duplicate the color photo.

Step 2:

run black and white on the duplicated layer.

Step 3:

select the gradient tool(make sure primary color is black and secondary is white) make a :AlphaChannel: transparent radial gradient on the black and white layer from the center to the outer edges.

Step 4:

on a new layer above them all.. fill this layer with black and use a transparent radial gradient from the center to the edges.

if everything looks good now flatten your image by pressing ctrl+shift+f and save :D

I hope that helps mate.
