Paint.NET is getting noticed!


Recommended Posts

Argh I must have mangled my install then because mine is in Object ... Which makes sense to me for all that. I can only apply it to something I would consider to be an object and not an entire image or layer pass like the stylize plugins do ... **EDIT: With the noted exception of blending a drop shadow on a layer with some transparency involved of course.

Meh, I guess I get to figure out why its in the wrong place, but to be honest I'm not sure I want to "fix" it or not ...

Seems like most got a solid nod from the article/ad spot ... I'd almost call it an ad with how they opted to write it up, but then I'm not familiar with the publication enough. Sort of reminds me of the Family Handyman format in some ways ...

Thanks for post GF. I'm sure they wont mind the potential reverse sales leads of it all.

Plugin Index (PDF) had over 6500 downloads last month. I thought my talent had finally been discovered! :lol:

SOLVED. If it's under Stylize it's an old version.

I just updated Kris' pack and the Drop Shadow effect now shows up in the Object menu.

Don't know if this was posted already, but the Official Windows Magazine mentions Paint.net briefly. I'll try and get a scan ASAP but for now I'll just quote what they said.

"If you don't have any extra image editing software on your PC, you'll know that Paint doesn't quite cut it. That's where Paint.NET comes in - it's a well-designed image editing application that not only fills in the gaps of the software that comes with Windows, but also has plenty of image manipulation features that you'd normally have to buy a package such as Photoshop Elements to get. The best thing is that Paint.NET is completely free. The interface is easy to get to know and uses a tabbed system, while the app works extremely quickly - there's no waiting around for it to start up. Features include layers, effects, unlimited undo, and drawing, gradient, and cloning tools."

Pretty cool.

Nice cameo in an official article about the newest Process Explorer, which can now show managed (.NET) call stacks: http://blogs.msdn.co...s-explorer.aspx

I even got to review the article before he posted it :)

I rep for Paint.Net everyday on an MMA site I live on at work.  Even made a tutorial for people that want to learn how to alter photo's and face swap on their site.  Here is my sig on the site, and if it's frowned upon to link to other sites then let me know before you warn/ban me please!

 

Photoshop too expensive, and you wanna SHOOP for free?

Hey everyone!  Paint.NET is in second place on the Lifehacker call for contenders for best Photoshop replacement!  Star the comment that reviews PdN, so more people can find out about how awesome our favorite image editor is!

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

A friend of mine introduced to me Paint.NET since I told him that I know nothing about image editing. He told me Paint.NET is easy to use, thus I decided to give it shot. It really is! ;)  All those easy basic things like making a transparent background... you can't get that with just using  Ms Paint.

Very cool find Pixey! I'm always happy to see Paint.NET getting attention.  :star:

 

Though, I am noticing some of these places that take notice to Paint.NET do get some of the info wrong, lol.

I got the wrong impression when I read this part "In addition to all the usual healing, burning and cloning tools, Paint.NET also offers layer support for advanced editing" Paint.NET does not have healing and burning tools. It only has the clone tool. But, with the addition of Plugins, there is the Smudge tool and Liquefy tool. ;)

I found LifeHackers post when I did a google search, which was cool.

From that post of "Voting" Paint.NET is 3rd on their Top Five list. And although they are 3rd on the list, 3rd is still really neat! Also, quoting from them, they even called Paint.NET one of their favorites, "Paint.NET is one of our favorite image editing tools" :

In issue 353 of Webuser magazine PDN was rated as the best free graphics program available in a comparison test with others such as Gimp etc. Great stuff !

 

My one concern in the review was that they never said where to find plugins and just said to search the net, instead of telling people that they should only be downloading from here. So I mentioned that on their forum and posted a link to the plugin section. Unfortunately not everyone who reads the article will visit the forum so will just go ahead and do as they say and search the net, possibly downloading plugins from other websites. A very serious omission I thought.

 

Anyway it was still nice to see our fave graphics program get a mention. :)
