Ok, I used Search and I couldn't find this kind of tutorial anywhere...

I'm a n0ob obviously, and I really want to start playing more with Paint.NET.

I just downloaded Custom brushes plugin and converted some photoshop brushes into .png.

Is there any tutorial where it says how to use and all the stuff you can do with brushes?

I googled it but all tutorials I got were for Photoshop. Aaaand, it wouldn't turn out good, it's not the same.

[Please don't bite :oops: ]

...it wouldn't turn out good, it's not the same.
Nonsense, of course it would work.

Many Photoshop tutorials have been 'translated' in the past to fit in with the capabilities of Paint.NET, and with sabrown's advent of the Custom Brushes plugin, many more have been opened up and ready for conversion. All you have to do is guess what Paint.NET's equivalent would be to a Photoshop step. It will more than likely take a little experimenting, but hey, it's more fun that way as you'll learn far more by the trying of new techniques and methods.

Think of it this way, when you translate English into French, they are not the same language, and some context is lost in the conversion, but the meaning remains, just as it would with a Photoshop tutorial to Paint.NET.

If you require help with a certain tutorial or step, just ask here, after you have tried thoroughly yourself, of course :).

Well, there was biting in the overflow earlier... :-(

Yeah, "no biting" is still in effect. If they bite, report the post. Thanks. :-)

I played with it for few more hours, to be sure I tried many options and not coming here with some stupid question, aaaaand, I found it. But since I'm too proud to call myself dumb, I'll just say I was tired. :P

And the problem was...when you go and click on Draw with custom brush and the window with brushes opens, no one said I should change size. :oops:

Ok, you'll be my victim. :D Are you volunteering on tutoring me? :wink:

This is the brush package I downloaded, converted with abrViewer

How do I do this with some photo?

Hmmmm, toothy geeks who get offended if you type '.net' instead of '.NET'? :P

Well, first you would want to open your photo to use as a reference. Then you would create a new layer, fill it in white, and start brushing the area you want to show on this new layer in black. Delete the reference photo and save the brushing. Open up the photo and use the Alpha Mask plugin, load the file you saved, and voila!

Let me know if you need further explanation.

Call me expired. Please.

Hmm, I haven't really done a lot of work with the custom brush plugin yet. Perhaps I'll give it a try. That option might actually save some steps, if it is what I think it is.
