Paint.NET: Interactive Guide by Eulogy-Dignity -This is an interactivne tutorial for Paint.NET. It is a comprehensive visual guide to the interface of this program and is intended to give you an understanding of the basics of how this program works.
The information contained herein is intended to complement Paint.NET's Help file, and should not be used as a replacement for it.
I wasn't entirely happy with the first version and have since totally redone the tutorial. More screenshots (about 160, I believe) and more descriptions all around. It's much, much more complete than the original!
An Emoticon Animation Tutorial Part 1 and Part 2 by Jtcgh -I noticed that most of the emoticon tutorials here on dA refer entirely to specific software which may be too expensive (e.g. photoshop), or not powerful enough (i.e. MS Paint) for many members of the community.
I know that if the only option presented to me had been to shell out several hundred pounds in order to make emotes, I never would have started.
Good thing is, that isn't the only way. Paint.NET is a powerful, but most importantly free piece of software which can be used to create emoticons, and this tutorial guides you on how to go about doing that.
I want this to allow people who have wanted to try their hand at emoticons, but haven't been able to due to the cost of Photoshop.
Paint.net tut- outline by skymaggot666 -I've noticed there are not a lot of Paint.NET tutorials out there. To show my love of the great free program, I decided to make one of my own.
Paint.Net tutorial by Psychic-girl -Here is a tutorial I made for the Paint.Net program. It's a neat alternative to Photoshop if people can't afford it. Really! Hope you all like it and find it helpful.
PaintNet Line Art Tutorial by RisingEchelon -This is meant for those of us who can't afford photoshop (or can but choose not to spend the money on it) and have downloaded Paint.NET. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
Paint.NET Lineart Tutorial by acsoundwave -Digital inking on Paint.NET: Six Simple Steps. The trick with this process is that your pencils must be good to begin with. I picked this sketch because the lines were strong enough for the tutorial.
Paint.net Tutorial by eggo21 -I am like the only person i know off of DA that can do digital art, so i get the same question constantly. "can you teach me how to draw on paint"? I finally decided to make a tutorial for the people that wanted to learn how to use Paint.net. I know its not extreemely to the point, but part of a learning process is figuring some stuff out yourself. Download for a better view of the writing.
Paint.NET: Cell Shading by Otomodachi -This is a Paint [Dot] Net Tutorial. Paint.Net is an image editing program similar to both Photoshop and Paint Tool SAI, but not as advanced. It's free to download and is not a trial.
Paint.Net Tutorial- Coloring by TOXiC-ToOtHpAsTe -Sorry if you don't like my style of coloring, you don't have to look at it. This is just how I color, and I know I still have quite a lot to learn. Thank you very much for looking at my paint.net tutorial!
Quick Kirby Paint.Net Tutorial by DemandinCompensation -I didn't erase the color in this from when I went over the lines. I did for my final version, but just so you know, you can have transparency in your eraser. You just need to change the transparency bar just as you would for a color.
Part 1Part 2 by Neolioness -A friend was wondering how I made my BG in my Sailor Blaze picture, so I put this together for her. This basically covers some of my favorite ways to create a non-boring BG in Paint.NET. If there is anything that you don't understand that you want me to make clear, comment and I'll try to help you. A basic knowledge of the Paint.NET interface is recommended.
Tutorial for HairPart 1, Part 2, and Part 3 by peach-a-boo -okay ALL OF THE coloring is done by setting the LINART LAYER to "multiply". Then i added another layer under the lineart layer and it is a normal layer, and i named it COLOR HAIR.
Angel Tutorial by zelayda -Here's a simple tutorial on how to make someone look like an angel. C= You just need the free program called paint.net (you can look it up on Google). It's really simple and it's so much easier - as I remarked in the tutorial itself - if you have a tablet.
Coriolis Effect - Paint.NET by Ghost-Dreamer -I named this Coriolis effect after the first creation I made with it and because it reminded me of that effect, it is not the name of an actual effect in Paint.NET.
3D Text Tutorial by jake2k -Start out with a blank canvas (I add a pink bg to mine but you dont have to). It's better to make it bigger than what you want it to be so you can size it down.
New & Improved 3D Text/Logo Tutorial! by jake2k -Seeing how my last 3D text tut was a big hit but unfortunately a huge headache to many people I set out to find an easier way to accomplish this effect. Now many days... weeks... ok months later I have come up with what I hope is an easier more "noob" friendly tutorial, not to mention the improvement in the visual department.
Paint.NET: 3D Text by Eulogy-Dignity -jake2k's awesome tutorial on 3D text was deemed 'non-newbie friendly' by a few of the newer users on the PdN forums... This is the 'skin-and-bones' version of his tutorial. Easy enough, right?
Paint.Net: Transparency How-To by LatiasGirl93 -A little while ago on Pokemon Fan Universe, some random newbie was asking how to make transparent backgrounds. I whipped this together, trying to help. It is my first tutorial. Ever. Enjoy!
Artificial Fire - Paint.NET by Ghost-Dreamer -Here's the promised tutorial on making artificial fire, the tutorial was written for Paint.NET as that is the software that I use but I'm fairly certain this is transportable to Photoshop and possibly even GIMP.
PAINT.NET TILE TUTORIAL by cheeny -Paint.Net, is like Photoshops slightly retarted younger brother. Its an O.k. program as far as free software goes, but spending money on photoshop is worth it. thats why im gonna buy it as soon as i have the cash.
Paint.Net -Rain- by katana-mistress -Basically made it because ~RinAK212 asked me how I make rain and beause it would be to hard to explain it, and i was didnt feel like looking for a tutorial on Youtube, i made a tutorial!
I use to use a program that would let me draw over the drawing without using an ink tool or another layer. I would almost seem like the paint tool is going under the drawing and leaving it looking something like this [link] , it has the nice gritty pencil sketch right under the color and I want to see how I can do that with SAI and (just in case) Gimp.
WOW!!! O.o tis is such a awesome pack of tutorials ill try to look at all of the tutorials. ALL OF THEM! oh is there one on how to change sin color? like i want to get a picture of a person and change the skin color to grey is there one on this list or can anyone give me a link to a tutorial like it?
This is excellent, thank you so much for all your hard work and understanding. Were would we be without people like you. I don't know if i missed it while scrolling down your work but can you tell me if its possible to add a pattern inside a scallop frame in paint.net without going over the edges. would love to know. please keep the tuts coming....amazing. pippa x
