About Layers


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

well... i'm a new user to paint.net but i noticed something about the layers,

whenever i get a image into a layer and press "Enter" the image is cuted and gets the size of the layer, for example, if i have an image 1800x600px and create a text 18x18px, when i get to edit the size of the layer... it comes to 1800x600px... is there some way to fix it? or it's a good idea for the next version of paint.net?

 

Cya ^^

The layer's dimensions are the same as the image dimensions...why is this a problem?

That just means you have that whole area available for editing.

Well...if you think about it, you have an 18x18 box plus a bunch of space around it to edit your text.

The only problem comes when you're trying to edit something larger than your image. When that happens, you just have to edit the thing in a separate image and import it when you're done.

Nope.  Think about it.  What if you wanted to add three more characters?  18x18 would be too small.

 

In Paint.NET each layer is the same size as the image.  This means we can place an element in a layer and move it around within the layer.

 

We often describe layers as acetate sheets.  Stacked together they form the image.  It makes sense to have all these 'sheets' the same size.
