Default How to make a beam using Paint.NET. ~Requested by chelseacool10~

Okay, so I made a guide on how to make a beam using GIMP. Now, here's a guide on how to make a beam using Paint.NET, though personally I believe that this isn't the best program to use to make beams. This was requested by Chelsea.

Oaks and dokey, so:

1.) Open up Paint.NET. (Obviously.)

2.) Open a new file. To start, 800 by 600 pixels is good.


Here's how it looks:
Click the image to open in full size.


3.) Add a new layer.

Here's the "layers" button.

Click the image to open in full size.


Here's on the side:

Click the image to open in full size.





4.) Choose a background. You can do this by typing up what you want in your web browser.

5.) Paste the background into the white "background" layer. Then adjust.
NOTE~ You can also make it transparent. Just ignore the background layer and delete it at the end.

Here's what you should have so far:
Click the image to open in full size.


6.) Add the object you want a beam around. (I'm going to use my character.)


NOTE~ Paste the object in the "new layer."

Here it is so far:

Click the image to open in full size.

I used a picture that I had already made transparent.


7.) Add a new layer.

Here's the "layers" button:


Click the image to open in full size.



8.) Take the "magic wand" and click on the screen, while on the "new layer." This will select the whole picture.



It's located in the tool section:
Click the image to open in full size.


9.) Select the "Line/Curve" icon.

That's also located in the tool box:

Click the image to open in full size.



10.) Select your width and color. (I'm going to use 20 for mine and green.)



Here's what I mean:

Click the image to open in full size.



11.) Draw the line in the middle of the object, from the top to the bottom.




Here's what it should look like:
Click the image to open in full size.




12.) Adjust the line so it curves.




Where it's circled is where you can adjust it. It just takes practice.

Click the image to open in full size.


13.) Take the eraser and erase every other line.

Here's how it should look:
Click the image to open in full size.



14.) Make it glow. *Optional* Make sure you're on "layer 3" and go to "effects," "photo," and "glow."

Click the image to open in full size.


Then, adjust the glow:

Click the image to open in full size.



Here's how it should look:

Click the image to open in full size.


15.) Add extras! (Such as text.)


16.) Save as .PNG

When you recive this message, click "flatten.":
Click the image to open in full size.


Here's my result!
Click the image to open in full size.



If you have any questions, feel free to post them here or to VM me!
Post your resutls!
