Ok, I downloaded Paint.net to resize pics, images, or logos and to create window stickers. However, I am completely new to it all! After playing with it and using it for a few days, I've done a few things with gradients paintbrush and text. I don't know JACK about layers or anything else! I have a few questions that I'm hoping someone will help me with.

1)When I am placing graphics AND text on a new creation, for some reason I can only add the text FIRST and not AFTER I add any graphics. (So, if I mess up after getting my graphics on there and realize I need my text moved, I gotta start ALL over! Help! Look-----I told you I was BRAND NEW at this! Oh, and almost an old lady.....lol

2) Is there any instruction book on the program out there anywhere??? anywhere??? maybe a Paint.net book for Dummies???

3) How do I resize photo's?? How do I work with layers?

4) WHERE is the align tool? (or align object tool.....whatever it's called) I need a simple way to CENTER text and pics......as my eyes are getting worse these days! lol

The program has been useful to me from what I have learned by hitting the wrong buttons by mistake (lol) but I'm sure there are MUCH better ways to do things than what I've been doing......

Someone please help.....thanks and God Bless.

When you join, you should always read the rules.I'm not an admin, but i can tell you that you're not allowed to name a topic just 'HELP'.Know why?

1)YOU CANNOT SHOUT LIKE THIS.Talk like a normal human.

2)The topic title has got to have detailed information, you may not just say help.Maybe...'I'm new and need help' will work.

;) Not trying to be rude, just trying to make sure everybody is following the rules...Hope this doesn't upset admins...What i just told you.

Hi sampsons11, welcome to the forum. I'll need you to edit the title of your post to something other than "HELP!", or I will have to lock it. See rule #6, http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/2932-read-first-the-rules-yes-you-read-this-2010-12-31/ .
