This might be info just for me, but .. Just in case. I downloaded the newest version of Paint.NET today, and it seems it has some new features. Specifically, it has this new distort effect called "Dents" and works wonders for roughing up an otherwise clean coastline, creating a bit of extra flavor. You do hafta fidgit with it though. Just thought I would throw this out there.
