    stripey backgrounds with paint.net

    stripey backgrounds



    I’ve spent ages trying to find a way of producing cool stylish backgrounds without having to buy any new, expensive software and finally I’ve discovered a simple technique:


    Step 1



    Resize the background to the size you think it best, I went for about 1200px wide and 1000px high.



    Click the gradient tool and drag to however you want your gradient to look.




    Step 2



    Create a new layer called stripes or something like that.



    Click the fill button and select ‘fill: backwards diagonal’ then simple fill the whole new layer with stripes





    Double click on the layer ‘Stripes’ and set opacity to 17 this will give you a nice stripy background, save this as a .png file and away you go!

    thats basically it, i decided to make this tutorial because i cant afford any expensive software like photoshop and searched for ages to find a tutorial like this, only to realise just how easy it is using paint.net

    have a look at an example of this here
