A repost with poorer quality than the original, replaced text, and a watermark from a similar site.
However, I support this post.
Hmmm. I suppose I'll be more mindful of watermarks.
I don't know if MSPaint has a crop to selection option, but Paint.NET is free to use and it does (just hit S to activate select mode, highlight what you want and Ctrl + Shift + X).
Excuse my wide lack of knowledge of computers, but is MSPaint essentially paint that you get with your PC? If so, then there is a little blue taggy bit at the bottom which you can click and hold, then pull up to "crop" things. Not an exact science, naturally, but it's just cropping a tag so wouldn't matter.
Takes about a second.
MSPaint is MicroSoft Paint, which comes with most Windows OSs. I just cracked it open and, behold, there's a crop selection on it.
Ahhh, thought so. Yeah, it's really really easy and simple to crop on that.
Is there an easy way to do masking in Paint.Net? I couldn't figure it out for the life of me, and the only guide I found needed like 3 or 4 layers to do it.
What do you mean by masking in particular? I never quite had it explained what the term meant.
i think, though i'm not certain, that masking generally means covering bits of an image or images (like a background) to make them smoother or to make them fit together better in a composite.
That was a very vague definition.
fair enough. i use photoshop frequently, and masking in that program is a technique that can be achieved in several ways. let's say i have a picture of you with a dead tree in the background. if i want to remove the tree without deleting part of the original image, i simply cover or "mask" it in any one of several ways. also, a short tutorial may provide a better explanation.
Well, all of those techniques are available in Paint.NET, and there are probably add-ons to help it (open source and all that).
In Mac OS you just hold cmd+shift+4 and you get a crosshair to select part of your screen. You select it and it saves to your desktop. I just do that and upload right from my desktop.
I stumbled upon the original (from this site anyhow) and lol'd 'cause you responded to it.
I would say mine is better quality.
I would have to agree.
How is this popular? It completely misinterprets everything about religion. I guess its popular to criticize without doing research these days
Of course it's going to be popular. Much easier to de-legitimise your detractors than to think about self-improvement.
