This is your Paint.Net toolbar. I'll show you the left side of it first.
Let's go to the first listing -- "File":
SAVE can be used in this way. As you know, it is to save the project you're working on. To make this simpler for you, you can also use the little button below, which is located under "Edit" as well.
EXIT is used if you want to close down your whole program.
OPEN RECENT is the button you'd use if you want to know what the last project you were working and to have the program re-open it. (This will only work if you haven't closed down your program and restarted.)
ACQUIRE is used for when or if you wish to load something in your program.
The next listing is this -- "Edit":
I tend to use the below buttons for the "Undo" and "Redo". Much easier than pulling up this whole box.
The next listing is this -- "View":
You truly do not need to open this box. Instead, to zoom in and zoom out, you can use this option:
The next listing is this -- "Image":
Flip Horizontal or Vertical does exactly what it says, but it flips vertical or horizontal the WHOLE image and not an individual layer.
The rotating buttons flip a layer or a completed tag in one way or another.
The next listing is this -- "Layers":
"Duplicate Layer" is easier if you use the layers box, so this option is extra.
I use "Flip Horizontal" and "Flip Vertical" in my layers a lot in creating my tags, depending on where I would like my element to be (right or left side).
"Rotate/Zoom" is great if you want to turn one layer in a certain direction.
"Layer Properties" is also shown in your Layers Box so this one is extra.
The next listing is -- "Adjustments":
The next listing is -- "Effects":
The next listing is -- "Utilities":
"Manage Fonts" will take you to your computer's font folder so you can easily delete fonts you don't want.
"Language" is understandable. If you speak French, you can change this program to French for you to easily understand.
"Check for Updates" will alllow you to look for updates to PDN without any trouble.
The next listing is -- "Window":
The next listing is -- "Help":
Now, to the right side:
Simply place your cursor on the first image shown. A red X box will show up on the image:
You will have to do this for every image you have open, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE TAG YOU ARE WORKING ON! If you mistakenly do this, don't fret. The program will ask you if you wish to "Discard", "Save", or "Cancel (and return to the program)". Just click "Cancel" and you can resume your work.
