Gracias de antemano por vuestra ayuda.Saludos

I'm going to try and give you some hints to help you get started:

1. Open Fig1 in Paint.NET

2. Add a new layer :AddNewLayer:

3. Select the Paint Bucket tool :PaintBucket: and left click in the new layer to fill it with black.

4. Open Layer Properties (press F4) and lower the Opacity to around 174.

5. Activate the Rectangle select tool :RectangleSelectTool: and drag out a square selection (hold down the Shift key = forces the selection to be square)

6. Press the M key twice - or select the Move Selection tool :MoveSelectionTool: right click and drag with the shift key held down to rotate the selection 45 degrees.

7. With the selection still active, activate the Gradient tool :GradientTool:

8. Expand the Colors Window (Click More button). Lower the transparency (of the Primary color = black) to around 12.

9. Right click at the top of the selection and drag downwards. The selection should fade from white to virtually transparent. Stop dragging 1/2 of the way down the selection.

You should end up with something like this:

That at least will give you something to build ideas on.

Hello Ego Eram

Thanks for the info, I've done step by step explanation with his excellent result, congratulations and thanks for your help.

Could be interesting to have an oval shape with gradient regulation point to create light effect in both wall and floor, and see Fig_3 Fig_4.

From here to whom the request that if possible this improvement is taken into account to perform this type of effect as is done with Photoshop.

My thanks to Ego and Paint.Net team for their work.

Thanks Andres 462

You can use any of the selection tools to create the shape. The Ellipse select tool :EllipseSelectTool: will make the oval shape you discussed.

+ my vote. As far as I'm aware, we're lacking anything in this vein.

As I understood, you like to do a tutorial for this kind of light effect, am I right? If yes then go a head if you like just add my name at the end,

And you can get some more information on both effects, the conical and the oval shapes in this video:

It is better to convert it to PDF format then upload it to a hosting site that accepts PDF files, like ImageShack, then copy the link and post it to the forum.

Or if you want to present it directly to the tutorial section, then you need to upload all the images to a hosting site ( like Photobucket or Imageshack, then replace every image in Word file by its corresponding link. After that post it in the forum by selecting all the document, copy it and paste as any regular text in the post reply procedure of the forum.
