Over Laying Grid Line onto a Photo using Paint.net v3.5.10

Recommended Posts

I am new to Paint.net and I have installed version 3.5.10 and I am working on a project where I need to overlay gridlines onto a photo. I have tried using the gridline feature, but that does not work, and I have watched a video tutorial which has good information but the tutorial was for version 3.5.8. The features that were in the tutorial seem not to be available to me with the version that I am using.

I appreciate any help.

Thank You,

Hello Lobo 1943, welcome to the forum.


Are you using the gridline plugin ?    http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=4175

- if so, run it own its own layer above the photo and tick the 'foreground only' box to make the white transparent.


The little grid icon    :Grid:  is for the pixel grid, which is mainly used for tiny pixel art and probably not what you are looking for.


Hope that helps.
