Ego Eram Reputo Posted September 29, 2012 Share Posted September 29, 2012 Some of you will be aware that I've been writing a book on Paint.NET. Well, it's finally here.... I've written this book for beginners through to advanced users. I hope Mastering Paint.NET 3.5.10 will prove the definitive guide to our beloved image editor. It's a complete reference to every feature, nuance, tool, filter and effect found in Paint.NET. It's almost 400 Word pages with hundreds of color images, tips, detailed explanations, hints and how-to guides. Contents at a glance: Contents Introduction About The Author Dedication Acknowledgments Conventions & Abbreviations SECTION 1 Before You Start With Paint.NET Chapter 1 - Introducing Paint.NET Chapter 2 - Installing Paint.NET SECTION 2 Basics Chapter 3 - Understanding The Interface Chapter 4 - The Menus Explained Chapter 5 - Tools Chapter 6 - Color Chapter 7 - Layers & Layering Chapter 8 - Adjustments Chapter 9 - Effects Chapter 10 - Selections & Selected Areas SECTION 3 Advanced Concepts Chapter 11 - Plugins Chapter 12 - File Formats Chapter 13 - Understanding Printing & DPI Chapter 14 - Blend Modes Chapter 15 - Customizing Paint.NET APPENDIX A Keyboard Shortcuts APPENDIX B Summary of Tips APPENDIX C Online Resources APPENDIX D List of Plugins APPENDIX E Menus What others are saying about Mastering Paint.NET Feedback Available from Amazon in Kindle format. Other ebook formats available by request. Here's what some of our esteemed forum users had to say about it: “Scott aka EER has achieved something with this book - teaching an old dog new tricks. A very informative read, with the author speaking to you ... not down to you as some user manuals do. His sense of humor adds to the whole reading experience.” -- Welshblue “Definitely a must of all users of Paint.NET. I learnt a lot in reading this & just had to try out many of the things I was reading about. An absolute pleasure to read with very good explanations & a great sense of humor.” -- barbieq25 “Scott Stringer's casual writing style makes this book a pleasure to read. He really covers the basics of Paint.NET well. I consider this book to be 'required reading' for all Paint.NET beginners.” -- BoltBait The book has taken almost a year to complete. I couldn't have done it without my supporters: Rick, BoltBait, Welshy, barbieq25, nitenurse79, Simon Brown, Evan Olds, NisseBosseLasse and just about everybody who has ever written something on the forum. My sincere thanks to you all. 3 Quote ebook: Mastering Paint.NET | resources: Plugin Index | Stereogram Tut | proud supporter of Codelab plugins: EER's Plugin Pack | Planetoid | StickMan | WhichSymbol+ | Dr Scott's Markup Renderer | CSV Filetype | dwarf horde plugins: Plugin Browser | ShapeMaker Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
