Celestine Posted October 14, 2012 Share Posted October 14, 2012 Hello everyone. I'm completely new to graphic design. I had tried using Inkscape to produce what I want but I wasn't getting the features to work they way there were supposed to and I was advised Paint.net is easier to work with so here I am. I've gone thru a couple of the Paint.net tutorials which were not really related to what I need to do. I think it would be better if I just describe the project I'm wanting to do and get advice as to which tutorials I would specifically need to go thru to accomplish what I want to do. It seems like the tutorials are more oriented to toward working with a landscape document when what I need to have is a portrait document. I need to produce a digital file that will be printed on both T-shirts and posters thus the portrait document. The design is actually very simple. I have a free clipart photograph I want to use that would go in the upper left hand corner then have text in the upper right hand corner next to the photograph and more text underneath the photo and the right hand corner text. The photograph is of a solar eclipse and the edges of the photo are a very dark purple, almost black which I would like to have as the background color for the whole document. Or I could have it just shade into black, I just don't want the edge of the photo to show. The text would be white. I would need to know about importing photos to Paint.net (I've saved the photo I want to use on my computer), how to move photos and other objects around, how layers would work with what I want to do how to shade colors so that I don't have any edges where I don't want them and so on. What directions should I go in? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
