Just getting started - Some questions


Recommended Posts

I just installed Paint.NET.

I intend to read all the help files.

I hope they are better than the Windows Paint help files.

My security settings do not allow ActiveX on webpages.

Why is there an ActiveX used on this forum?

In Windows Paint there is a "Paste from" feature that allows one to paste in an image from where ever you have it stored.

Is this feature on Paint.NET?

With Paint a .gif loses its transparent background if pasted in.

I would assume with Paint.NET one could add a layer or something so a .gif would keep its transparent background if it could be pasted in?

That would be nice.

I'll probably have more questions in the future.

This forum does not have an ActiveX control.

"Paste from" in MS Paint is like "Layers -> Import from File" in Paint.NET. We have to make it more generalized because you can import multiple files, and those files can have multiple layers.

Paint.NET should load a GIF w/ transparency just fine.

My guess is it's just one of those other addons you have installed that's trying to jump in and start doing things, because I know for a fact that this forum does not use any ActiveX anything. Try Tools -> Manage Add Ons from within Internet Explorer and see if you find anything worth nuking.

It is a page ad by Google that does it--

It seems to use Java.
