A description of how you did this would be most helpful. I was not here, being a newbie, when the tut was written and going to that forumer place is an exercise in futility as I can never find what I'm looking for. For us beginners knowing how to start it is kind of important. An excellent tutorial it is. Even a zoom would help.

I had a hard time reproducing the facets, especially if I tried to change the gem's color. I read somewhere in this forum that gem facets are hard to reproduce in PDN. I wondered why the PDN gems I'd seen lacked them. Anyway, I thought I had posted this, but I don't see it here. It's not perfect, but I got the idea okay. Thanks for this tut.

Ok, assuming you have black set as your primary color, and white as the secondary color (the default setting when you start Paint.NET):

Step 1: Select the Gradient tool

Step 2: Choose the Linear (Reflected) gradient option.

Step 3: Click near the center of the canvas and drag the mouse towards the top left corner.

Second screen is the same Gradient tool and option, but this time right click near the center of the canvas and drag towards the top right corner.
