Tendercrisp Posted November 17, 2007 Share Posted November 17, 2007 First of all, I'm posting this here, because it's more of a little idea of mine than a legitimate tutorial. In other words, I just can't be arsed into making a tutorial right now, and if I did, it would be a really simple tutorial, not really worth posting. Okay, so one of the few major flaws (in my opinion) with Paint.NET is the lack of being able to use custom brushes. Apparently Rick should have them in Paint.NET some time into the distant future, but until then, we have to live without them. Now, custom brushes in Photoshop are usually just cropped B&W images that have had their brightness and contrast altered slightly. Now, who's to say that we can't make custom brushes in PDN? By cropping out images using my cropping tutorial, or any other method you see fit, making the image black and white, and then fooling around with the contrast, then saving the image as a PNG or GIF, you can create little decals and logos that are basically the equivalent of custom brushes. To save memory and time, you could compile them onto a little sheet for future use, and simply open them up as a separate image, and copy/paste them as you need. Attached is an example of what I'm talking about, a 1960's themed brush sheet that I've thrown together. Now, I didn't upload this to DeviantART because it kept messing up the transparency, and photobucket doesn't accept images this large, so instead I'm just giving a filefront attachment.
