Lilly Posted March 7, 2010 Share Posted March 7, 2010 Hello, Everyone, First, I am so grateful to everyone who contributes to this forum, but especially to all of you who have contributed and continue to contribute to this massively cool software's growth. You all have allowed so many to be able to create some pretty cool stuff, and allow the creativity to flow. So, thank you for giving something to people; for being nice and helpful. Secondly, I'm Lilly. A little backwards to the 'forum' scene, but trying my best to comply with the rules. I guess I've been coming here to read for maybe a month. I finally decided to register. I looked around for a place to post a suggestion to those who have the power to make plug-ins. I hope this is the right place. Anyway, I'm not a graphics guru. I do, however, use this software program for a few reasons, so far, but in time will do more. I used to use a commercial graphics program, for many reasons, and was going to upgrade, but I checked out PDN, not even thinking I would take it seriously, but I was wrong. I In fact, I'm not wanting to get the latest commercial graphics software program just yet. Not after finding this baby. OK, so, things I used to do with former graphics software but either haven't figured out on Paint.net yet or it just isn't a function....thus far, and that I, at least, think would be handy to have PDN do, if possible are the following: Have a default option thingie when you select "new" to click a little box or radio button that says "Would you like to make this your default" so that the next new background image I open can be the same size I selected as before. That way I don't have to keep changing the blank new image size every time I go to make a new image. Maybe this already exists, but newbie me hasn't figured it out yet, and I'm not that techie with the terminology, but it would be handy to be able to have something that allows me to softly darken the inner edges, the same color, of that particular image. Not a vignette, but something that is exactly the same as the colors. For example, if I created a tree, I would like all colors the same near the inner edges, just a soft darkening of those edges. If that is already existing, what is it called within the effects options? I have read that the PNG saving option is possibly being worked on so that images can be saved as a PNG format, with the transparent surroundings, or maybe I just read that there is a kink in that area. I'm sure eventually it will be worked out. I WOULD LOVE to be able to write a line of text and then be able to, for example, make my simple line of text go up and down repeatedly, like a hill and valley. I believe that would be called something like "text to path"? That would be cool, although I am still tinkering with the text effect actions. If it already exists, it would be cool if I knew where it was. Again, I'm a little backwards with some of the official graphics terminology. Thank you for your patience in that respect. I wish I knew how to make those cool plug-ins because I would be more than happy to work on them, as to further assist the growth of this program. It would be my pleasure. So if the things on my wish list are really difficult or somehow legal infringement issues, just ignore me. All I DO know is that you all are brilliant. Thank you.
