Hi ...You might want to post this in the Tips and Helpful Hints Category of the Forum and then list the tips and/or tutorials that you might have, there, if they are different than the ones accessed thru Paint.Net's Help. Maggie

Hi! I'm totally new to digi scrapping and would appreciate some help. I just downloaded paint.net and I'm trying to work on some quickpages but can't figure out what to do. I'm unable to find any helpful tutorials. I'm lost, please help!

Hello saanisama, Maybe I can help you with your quickpages.
First of all you must Open up the Quick Page in the software. You will see that it has a "blank" area where your picture will go. Usually it's gray and white checked. This indicates it's transparent (for your picture to show thru)
Next you need to open up your photo that you wish to use in the QuickPage.
Now at the right on the top you see both the quickpage and the photo. Click and highlight the photo. Then click on Edit and choose Select All.
You will now see running lines around your photo.
Now you must go back to Edit and click on Copy.
Now you must click on your quickpage on the upper right. It will pop into your workspace.
On the right you will see Layers.
You need to click the plus sign and Add a new layer.
Keep your new layer Highlighted. Go to Edit and click Paste.
You will now see your photo ontop of the quickpage........continued below

Now go to your layers on the right. You need to highlight your photo layer, then click on the down arrow at the bottom of the layers.
This moves your photo beneath the quickpage.
Now move your photo so it shows thru the "hole" for your photo.
I hope this helps you. If not just ask and we will try to help you further. Maggie

I'm sorry I didn't get back here soon. Paint.Net does seem to work fairly slow when you have a lot of files open. Especially if you don't have much RAM, so I suggest you just save your project (in Paint.Net's file format, just hit the Save button) Save it often. That clears the memory for the software and you won't lose what you've done. Just bring it back into the software then, and continue to work on it. Again saving often. Hope this helps.

Amy, I have not done this in Paint.net, however I suspect that it might need additional plug ins to do this. However it does seem to have the tools...ex. Paint brush, pencil, etc. So I suspect it probably will have more available thru the plug ins. Just make sure when you are painting/coloring one part that you do it on it's seperate layer, just like you would in PSP. Good Luck!! Maggie

I have been using PDN for awhile now but as with all things in life I learn something new everyday. What I am wanting to learn today is how to give my backgrounds and papers the "torn" look . Any suggestions ?

Hi asnapp. If you open your pic in Paint.Net then use the lasso tool to select the area you want to colour. Then you can select your colour & use either the paint pot or paint brush to add colour to the selected area. Hope this helps!
