Hi.

Anyway, im starting (well going to) a comic, but I need a programe to do the speech bubble's so their nearly see through but not completly, I have Paint.NET and that's like 10,000 piece jigsaw, it's inpossible intil you die!

So could someone give me url or anything like that to a programe which is easy to make speech bubble's that are nearly invisible.

Thank you for reading and extra thank you if ya help :D

I'm sure paint.net will do that (it seems to do everything… does it do layers? If it does layers it can do it).

However, most readers really seem to dislike transparent speech balloons. I know it's a bit difficult to cover up backgrounds, but transparent balloons make it really hard to read what the words inside are. The letters need to be on a plain background, if you can still see the background through them it's more difficult.

Paint.net works fine for that. I don't get why you're having a problem with it.

It sounds like paint.net is complicated to use, I'm guessing here but he probably doesn't know the functions or steps he needs to accomplish the transparency effect.

I can't really help because I've never used the program. :[

I know Paint.net is useful for most people, but when I look on tutorial's and stuff, it say's stuff like layer's, but when I click add new layer, nothing change's, so I can make the right speech bubble's without another layer.

Also when you rub out, you get those freaking annoying square background…

That indicates transparency. You'll have to get used to it to do anything.

Also, what does this have to do with sharks.
i will also like to know you the more

Photoshop! That's what I use.

All you have to do in this little gem of a program is just mess with the transparencies. ^_^

It's a wonderful program for making comics!
