Creating Shapes

Recommended Posts



I am a bit of a beginner with paint.net and would like to see if someone could point me in the direction of creating my own custom shapes.


I am looking at creating hearts, starts, squiggle lines, circles with different style edges to them, all of which I want to be able to fill with colour or patterns.  I hear lots of people talking about plugins but not sure what I need or where to get them.


I have tried to upload a picture of the kind of thing I mean but it wont let me.


I would appreciate any help.



Thanks in advance

Hi Jenny and Welcome to PDN :) .


Yes, you will require a Plugin or two to get started. 


This Plugin has a lot of the shapes you speak about:

And here is the link on how to install them: 




It does take quite a while to get the hang of it but don't be afraid to ask for help if you get stuck.


Good Luck :)

Hi Pixey


Thank you very much for the welcome :). I am looking forward to reading lots of tips and info on here as I really like paint.net its one of the more straight forward programmes I have used however shame I cannot get it to work with vector files unless its just me.


I will go and take a look at the links you have posted.


Thanks again for your help, much appreciated, wish me luck
