Text: spacing of characters (kerning or tracking)

Recommended Posts


I´m new to paint.net and have limited understanding of layers and masks. I need to reproduce some text with the characters closer together. I read in a very old thread that you would have to use layers to do that, as paint.net doesnt support kerning or tracking - but I´m not sure how to do that with layers : would I need to have a seperate layer for each letter and then select and move the letters one by one and then merge all the layers? Is there a better way? I´d be very grateful if someone could give me a tip on how to do this.

You don't need to do every letter on a separate layer. Write your text, then use the selection tools and the Move Selected Pixels tool to move the letters to the spacing you desire.
