Update 2012-03-05: Alpha Blur v2.

Previous versions:

Update 2011-07-31: New effect Bidirectional Blur, new version of Sharpen+, Shadow/Highlight, LocalContrast, Basic Adjustments.

- Bidirectional Blur is gaussian blur with separated amounts for horizontal and vertical direction. Experimental / fun.

- Sharpen+, Shadow/Highlight and LocalContrast have new blur implementation* and are much more responsive to use.

- LocalContrast can now also reduce contrast. Plus options to apply to Shadows, Midtones or Highlights.

- Basic Adjustments has improved color rendering at extreme settings.

* The blur code is implemented from http://free.pages.at...lter/gauss.html (gauss2.ffp). Thanks to Alois Zingl for this impressive study and permission to use it.

Update 2010-07-22: New effect Grain, new version of Basic Adjustments.

Update 2009-11-02: Color Mixer and Color to Alpha compatible with PdN 3.5 beta.

Update 2009-07-08: Basic Adjustments updated; Black & White Converter updated and added to the pack.

Update 2008-12-24: almost every plugin is improved for rendering performance and quality, plus few minor UI changes and rearrangements in menu locations.

(Removed):

Hue / Saturation+

(Adjustments)

has the same functionality as existing Hue / Saturation adjustment, which sadly returns choppy results on gradients. This one keeps gradients smooth. <- No need for this any more - built-in effect has been fixed since Paint.Net version 3.5.2.

Nice set of plugins.

I've always been a big fan of Shadow / Highlight Recovery, although I still don't understand why you don't put this in the Effects > Photo menu.

Stickied! :mrgreen:

A set of (1.) stunning, professional effects (2.) with icons (3.) in the common submenus and with (4.) each effect being one DLL (so you can decide which effects you actually keep)...

What do you want more?

* Thanks for the 3.36 fix!!! *

Thanks for the terrific work, especially with the Red Eye Removal Plugin (hopefully, it will built in to future versions of PDN) :mrgreen:

Thanks! :)

Good point. Photo submenu seems more appropriate place indeed.

Should I better move Color to Alpha into Color submenu as well? What do you users prefer?

Yes, Color mixer too.

Thanks!

I agree with your comment about BoltBait's Gaussian Blur+ being cumbersome for blurs that strictly involve alpha blurring. In fact, I only use it to alpha blur. For this reason i keep the old version of that plugin installed in which the default is to only blur the alpha channel.

You plugin will replace that set-up...

Thank you.

You are not the first one with such problem, so I now mirrored the file in another server. See 1st post for url.

The basic adjustments plugin is surprisingly useful, and Sharpen+ is probably one of my favorite plugins evar. Good job. :)

EDIT: And local contrast enhancement is the McSexy. This is an A+ plugin pack.

What I want to do with a selected area is blur the background, just a little close to the selection area and more and more the further from the selection you get. (Am I clear or blurry?)

Is there a selection grow or shrink plugin?

Hi Tanel! This is a great pack, one of the first ones I downloaded after I cleared out my Effects folder tonight. I thought I might let you know that "Color to Alpha" and "Color Mixer" both crash on Paint.NET v3.5 Beta 4. They load without any errors when the program starts, but immediately crash when I attempt to bring them up. Everything else can be brought up without any problems!

Hi Tanel ! -

Im a beginner with all this, so please help if you can....

PAINT.net only has that rediculous "TINT" slide-rule bar for color correction (if one slides it for less green, it then makes too much magenta, etc)....

Do you (or someone else) have a COLOR PLUG-IN for PAINT.net to INDEPENDENTLY decrease / increase any of at least these FIVE colors (using slide-bars) ? :

YELLOW BLUE GREEN RED MAGENTA

....Or at least any of these THREE colors ? :

YELLOW RED BLUE (or GREEN)

Also, do you (or someone) have a PLUG-IN for PAINT.net that provides for correcting perspective (slanted buildings, etc) using INDEPENDENT pull-points ? Thx !

Also, if downloading / using any of these is tricky or complicated, pls warn me ! Thx ! - Paul M.

I have Color Mixer for that.

I need to fix compatibility with PdN 3.5 beta but it works fine under 3.36.
