How to make an LED in Paint.NET

Recommended Posts

I am not a really good paint user, but I need to create an LED for a binary clock program I am creating and I was wondering if there were any tutorials out there or if anyone knows how to create a realistic LED in Paint.NET.  I found one on YouTube, but it was in French and it did not quite help me with what I am trying to do though it did allow me to see that I need to install the plugin pack so I could have the buttons style available.  Now, I just need someone to show me how to make an LED.

How realistic does said LED have to be?

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

Binary clocks usually just have dots for a display, if I understand them correct. Is this what you are trying to achieve?

Almost though, it needs to have somewhat of a 3D effect and there should be two, one with a slightly darker color than the LED when it is on.
