Dodge and Burn?


Recommended Posts

  • 3 months later...

Dodge and Burn tools are not available in Paint.NET.

The "Color Dodge" and Color Burn" referenced in the picture are Layer Blending modes that determine how a layer interacts with the pixels located in the visible layers below it.

To access the Layer Blending mode you have to double click of the layer for which you want to make the change, then you will see what is in the screenshot above.

I feel that using Dodge & Burn as layer blending modes is not as convenient as using Dodge/Burn/Smudge tools in Photoshop. Are we looking forward for such functionality in PdN OR am I missing to see some hidden stuff?

I am new to photo editing (as a hobby) and evaluating all the software I can for my comfort level. So do not take me wrong when I say something in support of some other photo editing tool.

Thanks in advance - Pranav.

A lot of these 'tools' take a lot of time to program. Time a lot of the people doing this for us, -for FREE- don't have that kind of time. Deal with it. Make a new layer, put in the colors you want to use the 'tools' on and where, then change the layer properties to burn or dodge. And there is your solution.

Chill out EvilNeko.

In something like version 4, the new rendering architecture should allow something as simple as choosing the Paintbrush tool, and then choosing "Burn" or "Dodge" as the blending mode in the toolbar. This would affect how the brush draws on to the layer without requiring that you change how the layer affects the composition.

It is in the layer properties window.

You can access it by pressing F4

I thought at first, you wrote "You can access it by pressing [ALT] + [F4]"...

Thought there was a geek joke brewing...

That's a cheat code in Halo, but it just shuts it down for me... :(

*psst*

[Alt]+[F4] is the Windows shell shortcut to close the current program.

Whoever gave you that cheat is having their jollies at your expense.

First, let me thank you for suggesting the work around solution.

Everyone here knows that PdN is for free and is a result of huge development effort by some committed developers. But, that does not mean it has to stop where it is and expect its users to do anything with what is available only.

Better remember that being a user of PdN, even I feel happy and proud when PdN becomes one of the most wanted programs on planet earth.

I tried to be as soft spoken as possible. Sorry for any harsh tone you may feel. :)

That is a great news !!

Thanks Rick for announcing this.
