Is there a way to draw crayon or other style arrows in paint.net?


Recommended Posts

I know how to do the most basic arrows, but it looks like the line style is fixed, you can't use a paint brush or any other drawing tool for the line, its just a line and perhaps some strange windows 3.1 era pixel tile patterns.

Any way to do that kind of thing?  Crayon or inky type arrows?

Hi ShuckyDucky - welcome to the forum :D

Right now your best bet is to use a custom brush.

This plugin makes certain image files available as a brush Custom Brushes

The line type of arrow may be possible in the near future. The Dwarf Horde™ is currently working on a plugin to create shapes just like this.

 

For the chalk type arrow - try modifying this tutorial: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/21552-chalk-text/

Thanks, I guess i'll just wait for the Dwarf Horde plugin then, I just wanted a fast way to edit pictures with a caption.
