silent skies Posted July 6, 2010 Share Posted July 6, 2010 Hi all, new user, first time poster. I've been toying around w/ paint.net for only about a month, so for all intents and purposes I'm pretty much a complete newbie with the program. I'm having an issue which probably has a very obvious solution I don't know about yet, but I don't know about it yet I've been using Paint.net to make some pseudo-charcoal sketches of chess pieces, which I want to use in creating a map for a 2D-game. I'm happy enough with the results of the sketching for my purposes, but the problem comes with repositioning said pieces, especially when I try to rotate them. They automatically blur over... I suppose this is the effect of the 'smooth' property for the move tool. (The 'pixelate' function is even worse, I tried) Pictures speak more than words: This is the knight I sketched up and recolored. There is slight, but still quite noticeable, blurring going on when the piece is repositioned (as on the right, when rotated). The problem becomes more and more obvious once I start throwing in the other elements of the map. For example, the repositioned knight, which I want in the foreground, is blurrier than the background! I'm sure this is a basic enough problem, but I didn't find anything relevant w/ the search function so I thought I'd ask. Does anybody know of any way to work around this issue? Plugins that might help? I've tried the Photo-> Sharpen Image function but with only limited success... Thanks for any insights. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
