I KNOW HOW TO USE THAT I JUST CANT FIND IT!!!!!!!

Meh typing in caps doesn't help anything.

If you can just read English, and not being so impatient like a n00b, you can find the lens plugin easily.

Here's what I did:

1. go to http://www.getpaint.net/search.html

2. type lens

3. then the search result comes out... select the link that says something about lens plugin

4. takes me to the EdHarvey's effects pack, and by some reading, I found that it includes a lens effect

5. download it, extract it, and drop it into the effects folder

6. open paint.net, and look under Effects -> distorts

7. voila, you have the lens plugin!

Have a look here -

This should tell you all you need to know. Look forward to seeing your pics. :wink:

anonymous6366 - great pic. That star background is awesome and you did a great job on the rings, although it looks like you used a linear gradient on the planet. I tend to use radial as the planet is round and it blends in better. :)

Thank you so much for teaching this.

Here's my humble attempt:

@ Anonymous 6366, love that your planet's colors, lighting, and the starry-space!

One of the many good tuts that I tried. Great rings effect.

I started mine with the Add Noise plugin. The perspective isn’t that good but at least both axis, i.e. the one of the planet and that of the rings match, not like some I saw. :wink:

Thanks for a great idea.

Here is my version of Saturn:

[Edit] Looks much better now (I hope) :wink:

QUESTION TIME!!! How did some of you guys get shadows on the rings? Unless you actually did it free-hand or something... :?: :?:

My radial blur is different from what yours is in your tut pix. I tried the radial blur I have and it doesn't give the desired effect. Do you have any ideas of what I could do?

Thanks.

Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.

For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ.
