    One of my great frustrations of techie tutorials is that they either miss steps and it doesn't work the way they say it should. Or they use jargon and I don't know what they are referring to.

    Because I believe that every writer should know how to use imaging software to beautifully illustrate their work, I am publishing this tutorial (best free imaging editor) for writers specifically.

    Please can you check it, pick up anything that you think is clear as mud, and see if it can be improved in any way. I have searched the web and I have never been able to find anything that explains the GUI or is simplistic in explaining the steps. I've tried to be. smile

    Nice. This is the one I use too. Look into the grim reaper addon/plugin if you don't already use it: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/15595 … er-plugin/

      Thanks. I've just read through it, and it has a lot of typos. Funny. Never saw them the first time I checked.

      No, I'm unfamiiar with that plugin. Did you create it? Why do you find it useful? There are things I miss on paintnet, e.g. masking and feathering. However, the creator is back and looks like he will be working full time on paintnet this year, so it might well have some good upgrades.

        The plugin allows you to pick a colour and remove all pixels of that colour and you can set it up to delete with leaving certain transparency or with a certain closeness to the colour selected. It's really helpful if you want to remove backgrounds quickly. I use it a lot. Nope, I did not create it big_smile

          So in a way, it's like the magic wand - only more intense. The magic wand selects colors within a certain tolerance. So they wouldn't be exact. And, then, of course, you can delete that colour (or change it). So this would fine tune that. Have I got that right?

            Yup, something like Magic Wand. I had to look up magic wand now, never used it before as I always used this plugin. Thanks for pointing it out.

    I have used Paint.net in the past and it is nice. I prefer using GIMP right now as I have spent more time using it recently.

      I've never liked Gimp. I went from photoshop to Gimp because it is advertised as a look-alike. But it is complex and there are few adequate tutorials for it. I just gave up...

        Same here, not a fan of Gimp at all. I only use it if I need to create a vector graphic.

          Yes, I'm rather hoping the guy who owns paintnet will provide a few more tools... smile
