Paint.NET tutorial number 124 – Psychedlic drip drop colours gradient wallpaper


Hello. Today I’m going to show you a tutorial on how to
create a cool wallpaper, something like this you see now. And lets get started, go to file – new. And create an image with size you want. I’ll just choose my screen rezoliution. And click ok. Now choose gradient tool. And draw from bottom to top. And don’t forget to hold left shift, so
you’ll get a straight gradient. And add a new layer. Go to effects – render – multi color gradient. Choose angle 180 if you want. I’ve changed the 3 last colors to darken ones. And of course click ok. Change this layer blending mode to overlay
and opacity to about 180. Click ok. And merge it down. Of course add a new one. And go to effects – render – gradient bars. Choose settings that you would like. My settings are 0, 2.4, 3, 0, 90. And click ok. Dublicate that layer. Go to layers – flip vertical. Change this layer blending mode to multiply
and of course change opacity a little. And click ok.
Merge it down. Go to layers – flip vertical. Because we will need this lighter part on the top, not on the bottom. And change this layer blending mode to color burn.
Click ok and merge it down. If you’ll have something bad on the top choose rectangle
select tool, choose that good part and crop to selection. Now go to effects – distort – dents. Choose settings that you would like. My settings are 120, 25, 21, 8 and 5.
And of course click ok. So now go to effects – photo – soften portrait. My settings are 5, 20 and 3, but you can choose any other by yourself. Click ok. And lets add some glow to it. So effects – photo – glow. Of course you can choose any settings by yourself. But my settings are 1, -57 and 10. Click ok. And I don’t like the black thing going on the bottom. Its too much for me. So choose rectangle select tool and choose that you want to keep. And of course crop to selection. And now go to image – resize. And as you can see at the beggining I’ve choosed 1080, but its smaller now. So write back that number. Of course don’t forget to uncheck maintain aspect ratio and click ok. So now its too blurry, so go to effects – photo – sharpen. Choose 3 or 4 and click ok. So this is the final result and it looks awesome. I hope you liked this tutorial and I see you next time. Bye.
