How to make another profile pic!

Level 23 : Expert Spleefer
I have recently updated my profile pic, and I thought, it would only be fair to show how I made this one. So first what you want to do is go into paint.net(you get it at getpaint.net) This is what it should look like:


So what you want to do is go into file, then click on new.

Make it so it's a 250 by 250.

Your going to want to install this plugin for the next thing : http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/18811-ed-harvey-effects-v-35/

After you install that, you want to go into effects, render, Mandelbrot fractal.

Then you want to choose these settings:


If it's too hard for you to see, the settings where:

factor: 2

zoom: 5.50

angle: -14.05

quality: 3

Then when you have those settings in, press ok.

Then you want to go into effects again.

Effects > Blurs > Splinter

Then you want these settings:


Again, in case you didn't see them, here are the settings:

Splinters: 8

Distance: 100

Rotation: 37

Mode: Lighten

Then press ok.

Once you have done that, you want to add a new layer:

Layers > Add new layer.

Then in you layer window, you want to press layer 2

When you have done that, you click on the text button.

You want to change the font to Gang_Wolfik, but the PC doesn't start with it so you have to install it.

Then when you have done that, change the font size to whatever you want, but it needs to at least be 20. I recommend 36.

Once you have done that you need to write either your PlanetMC name or your Minecraft name.

After that you should have something like this:


What you want to do next, is click on duplicate layer, one the layers window


You want to click on the layer that you just made (Should be the top one)

When you do that, you want to do the recolor button.

Set it to white.

Then drag it over your name.

When you've done that it should look like this:


When you did that you want to go into

Effects > Blurs > Gaussian Blur

I don't need an image for this one, you just need to set it to 7, then press ok.

Then go to the recolor tool again, choose your favorite color, then recolor the text.

You can either: Finish there, or do one more thing.

If you chose the do one more thing then what you do is go into Effects > Photo > Glow, and mess around with it until you're pleased. If you do that you should have something like this:


And then save it as a png, then change your avatar to this!

Hope you can all make a profile pic that you like!

Oh and all you people who think Paint.NET is really basic, this seemed hard right, it's only one of the basic thing you can do in Paint.NET!
