Coornio Posted November 1, 2014 Share Posted November 1, 2014 (edited) I hope there's an answer to either of these two questions 1) I'm pretty sure that many of you would like to be able to record a paint.net session and replay it step by step for another image. Just take a history chunk, pop it to another picture, boom, automated painting. It's what i'd like to do in my case for several icons of different colors. They all follow pretty much the same procedure but having to write it down, and note the colors and values of each plugin for every step is just tedious. So i'm wondering, is there a plugin that can do something like that i haven't heard of? Is the idea awesome enough for someone to attempt it? 2) I am also looking for any plugin or feature which may make working in tiles much better. In some cases i wish to line up textures in a sprite fashion, but that requires me first to make a sample checker board so i can use it to know that my selections are aligned perfectly with each other. Is there something that would let me operate in this fashion where the selection snaps in place every 64 pixels for example? 3) As i said, i work with icons. I'm making a mod in a game called Tesseract that is pretty much a replacement for the current UI (which is a much older version of my mod to begin with, long story) but i'm helpless. I won't lie, i've no real clue how to draw anything that isn't a shape, at least, not reliable enough so i can reproduce it a few months later if i decide to redo it for whatever reason. Bottom line is, i suck. So i'm using dingbat fonts like webdings and wingdings to render the symbols unto the canvas, and then i work a little coloration on them and boom, ready to go in my mod to pretty things up. There is, however, only so much the default fonts can provide and having to rely on free icons i find elsewhere is both disgraceful and difficult when i run out of options since i can't exactly mix and match sets from different people, there would be no consistency whatsoever. So this is my problem really. I'm looking for dingbat fonts which may be able to render icons in a style similar to this icon pack i found: https://www.iconfinder.com/iconsets/super-mono-reflection Not to the letter, but clean looking like those. I would also appreciate any tips anyone might be willing to give me so i can create my own icon templates to work on. Because i could tell you some basic things about how an image is put together to make the end result but my knowledge would only go so far when complex shapes, intricate gradients, shadows, reflections and glows are in play.. Bonus: screenie of the kind of icons i'm using in my mod for reference. EDIT: the "no" and "yes" thumbs icons are what i was talking about when i said about coloring dingbat font symbols. It's a bit of a roundabout way that i'm going, using the Black & Alpha plugin to turn the image "inside out" by attempting to make transparent pixels opaque and opaque pixels transparent. If you guys know of another plugin to do something like that, MUCH appreciated. Edited November 1, 2014 by Coornio Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
