Newbie Needs Help With Eraser Tool


Recommended Posts

Hello all! I was SO PROUD of myself for learning the Adjustement - Curves action and was able to get an absolutley great color!

BUT - I've read the tutorial 3 times about the Eraser Tool and I've erased my heart out and nothing happens. It says it works best for layers, so I made my image a top layer - still no effect!

I've no doubt missed something very obvious that I just simply don't get! I'm a complete NEWBIE!

Please help me! Thanks! Pennie

I got your reply to my quest for help with the Eraser Tool. You asked for the Tutorial Link I'm using. This is it: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/EraserTool.html

It clearly explains how to use the tool, but does not tell how to finalize the deletion of the areas.

I'm trying VERY HARD to delete the surrounding white background from a clip art blue diamond for my logo on a jewelry website. I need deep purple to show through. The white square looks aweful.

I did go to your link and read it. I have no clue about "turning the top layer to "black and white".

Plus, do I make the lower layer all deep purple like I want?

I'm so sorry - I'm SO VERY new at this, it's really causing me problems!

I'll accept any help I can get! Thanks! Pennie

Forget about the link I gave in my previous post.

That was my wrong guess about what you were doing.

==================================

Open your image in Paint.NET as a single layer

and use the eraser.

The gray-and-white Checkerboard that indicates

transparency should show through.

==================================

If you can provide a link to the actual image you are

working on, it will help towards getting the best advice.
