How to draw a triangle?

Recommended Posts

Hello

As one of my basic steps through the Paint.NET I decided to draw some polygons or simply, to draw the triangle.

Of course there is a way how to draw it - I mean, I can use the basic Line / Curve tool, do roughly three lines and be happy.

But is there any way or any plugin for simple polygon drawing?

I was trying to figure it out "pluginless", also searching here for some plugins in plugin section, but just can't draw such an easy thing.. :/

How do you draw a triangle?? :)

Thx for help

im not sure if its a plug-in or standard issue but Effects/Render/polygones...

i added a lot of the 'basic' plugin packs without checking what was included in 3.5.6

"pluginless"

The simplest way without plugins is to draw a rectangle with the right hand side edge on the middle of the canvas.

Draw a diagonal line from the bottom left of the rectangle to the top right.

Copy the layer, mirror it and merge the layers and there is your triangle... albeit, after erasing a couple of lines!

many ways to draw triangles

I often use the method Welshy gave above. and these as well

here are a few other methods using different plugins.

version 1

fill screen with your color and use perspective plugin

version 2

this uses gradiants of your primary and secondary color

version 3 using radial gradiant and kalidescope

first fill your screen with gradiant
