JadedLemon Posted January 29, 2012 Share Posted January 29, 2012 Here are some things that I would like to see in Paint.net. Feel free to shout loudly if they already exist, but I just haven't found them. Or if you would find any of these things useful too. 1. A SIMPLE shape tool similar to the built-in rectangle, rounded rectangle, circle and freeform shape tool that you can draw anywhere on your canvas. Something you don't need a mathematics degree to use. Something like Microsoft now have in MSPaint. 2. The ability to move these simple shapes, once drawn, with the mouse before finally positioning them to where you want it. Like MSPaint. 3. Some nice brushes like Microsoft now have in MSPaint. i.e. Caligraphy brushes (2 of them), Airbrush, Oil brush, Crayon, Marker, Natural Pencil, Watercolour brush. Some of these may be in Paint.net as effects, but I would like to draw with them. 4. The option for the shapes to be drawn and/or filled with any of these brushes, just like in MSPaint. 5. The option to rotate a selection (rather than the whole layer) by a specified number of degrees, not just 90, 180, 270, I would like anything from 1 to 359, clockwise and anti-clockwise. I know I can right-click on a selection and rotate it by hand, but what if I wanted just the selection rotated by exactly 35 degrees? 6. Ad Hoc Custom Brushes, just like in MSPaint, as explained here - http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/tutorial/mspaint and an example in the attached image. I am sorry if some of these things are already available already, but I just haven't been able to find them. Please forgive me as I am still new to Paint.net. No doubt somebody will even tell me why these things are not in Paint.net too. I mentioned that I was new, right? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
