Recommended Posts

Excellent image Dryda!  A beautiful composition.  I'm pleased one of my tools helped you create it.

For something different...


This is the PDN icon made to look similar to the Windows 10 logo.
It doesn't look too bad in the task bar either:
How to apply this icon (windows only):

Hidden Content:

1. Download the .ico image from here, place it in a convenient folder.
2. Right Click on the desktop-> New -> Shortcut and the input should be,
 C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\PaintDotNet.exe
3. Name it whatever and press finish.
4. Right click the newly created shortcut and press properties.
5. Press "Change Icon"
6. Navigate to the .ico file you downloaded and apply it.
7. Open Paint.NET from that shortcut.
8. Right Click it in the taskbar and pin it.
Hidden Content:

If you want to locate the newly pinned shortcut, you can access it by pressing the Windows Key + R and typing,
 %appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar
Then pressing enter.

Anyway it was a bit of fun to make. Let me know what you think.

I like the icon a lot, actually enough to use it. My brain will take awhile to locate on my super crowded desktop now, because I'm used to the default PDN icon. :)


I hope that by your name mentioned it will notify you as a reply to your post?


Here is my submission to this topic:

It is a desktop wallpaper I made in PDN. This was made by a real image of a Soyuz Rocket. 1. I adjusted Contrast using Curves Tool, to create a black and white mask. Then I delete all white parts of the image. 2. Created a new layer under the image layer and created some designs 100% PDN that looked OK to me.  3. I think I used the Polar Warp Effect to create the pink magnetic field lines.
