I now have PDN. Now what?


Recommended Posts

If I'm not welcome here, I will understand. I've been lurking, a good bit. But, if you could, please point me in the right direction.

As background, I am fairly literate on computers, given that I am a trucker. I was about to get Gimp, until I discovered that I already had PDN.

I have a Canon A550 point and shoot, and can often get one of a kind photo shots. But, I have no time to set anything up. I have to point and shoot, or miss the shot.

I want to fix the noise and defects that I often get. Sometimes, it includes shooting through a dirty windshield, but I would like to be able to do some of what you guys do.

How many hours are there, in the learning curve?

If I get good, could I earn money with PDN?

Where do I start?

The F1 key brings me the the PDN site.

Same with the link in the Help menu.

There is no tutorial built in to PDN, other than tool tips, while hovering.

I'm running an off the shelf Toshiba laptop, with XP SP2, 1 gig memory, 2 processors, 15" screen. No mouse.

There should still be some photos at my 360 page:

By the way, you guys were so excited, that my first extension was Shape3D

Thank you, MKT.

And, compliments for such a polite and well run forum.

I was a moderator at a trucking forum, but have been missing in action, for a couple of months. I may not go back, due to the site owner's poor leadership.

I removed my rig, from my sig, since I don't yet know how to reduce it, properly.

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Do what David said...Help file, Rules, Faq, Search, Try as many tut as you can. Post you work in The Pictorium to get feed back.

Learning = never ends.

Make $ = You can make $ with anything that you become good/elite at.

Welcome to the forum!

Have fun PDN-ing. :)

Why not? :) It really depends on what you are able to do, both creatively and from a business standpoint. Paint.NET's license places no restrictions on this (it's not like it says, "thou shalt not make any money from your creativity while using this software").

Thank you, all, for the warm welcome.

I'm in the help files, now...

Just looked at layers and tinkered a bit with the magic wand. That thing scared me, a couple of days ago.

I'll be looking and lurking and learning.

Thanks, again.

Alliteration is fun! :D

Welcome, and enjoy! The knowledge of several hundred users is at your disposal, so if you have any questions, ask away! (Of course, search first. :wink:)
