dwphotos Posted February 24, 2011 Share Posted February 24, 2011 Hi, This is my first post. I'm new to paint.NET but want to start using it for photo editing. I have never used photoshop etc and have just recently read the paint.NET documentation pages that take you through all the features. My main question is: What does the magic wand tool actually do? This page: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/MagicWand.html gives good instructions on what to do, but not why i would do this and how it can alter my pictures. It seems to highlight over exposed areas of a photo. Does that mean i can adjust these areas to take the sharpness off these specific sections? On a second note, what other tools are useful for basic photo editing? Obviously 'Adjustments' (contrast, brightness, etc), and i have just discovered 'clone stamp' which seems great for editing out blemishes on photographs. Any other useful tips? Sorry if this post is not laid out too well. This is only my second time using a forum! Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
