Need help in moving one section of picture


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am designing a baseball uniform using paint.net. The player's name on the back of the jersey is not centered. I need to somehow move the name and only the name to the right. I know nothing about paint and the move tools don't do anything except shade the entire drawing. Could someone give me step by step info on how to move the name? I would appreaciate it very much.

If you put the names on their own layer, you could edit them/move them around without affecting anything else in the image.

Layers may seem daunting when you first begin to use them, but once you understand them, you'll wonder how you ever did anything without them.

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

Thanks, I found it but I can't get it to do anything. A cross and a rectangle box appear - I place them on the left of the name (I want to move it to the right) press the mouse, move the thing toward the name, thinking it'l push it but it goes right through it. How do you "select" an area?

You don't need to read the entire paint.net documentation just to learn how to use clone stamp. Just skip to the part you need. Here, I'll even link to it for you: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/CloneStamp.html

Why not  use control and magic wand and highlight all the letters you want to move and copy them,then add another layer and paste them on that for easy manuevering.  Then go back to the tea shirt layer and eye drop the color of the shirt and bucket fill the letters you moved. Then go move your letters around and merge when set.

 

On the magic wand you may have to adjust the tolerance to lock on to the letters clean.
