Ed Harvey Effects v 3.5 (2012-02-13)

119 posts in this topic

the cross process will not download when I download the pack. it isn't there when I unzip to move all files. :(

 any ideas?

 

In this case each effect doesn't have it's own separate file. Ed Harvey complied them together.

Can't find weave in Effects>Render all the other effects show up fine but I need weave to make a carbon fiber texture.  :(

I've been searching and searching for an older version of Ed Harvey's plugins and can't find them! The latest update to PDN requires Win7 and SP1, both of which I don't have. The latest version of PDN I'm able to use is v3.5.11. In particularly I'm looking for the Wobble plugin compatible with that version, but there is no link for the older version in the "Ed Harvey Effects v 3.5 (2012-02-13)" thread. Can a compatible version of the plugin be sent to me?

Hi @Tarazha - you can still find his older version on the web here but please be cautious when downloading.  I tested it and it's was OK, but you should be aware of potential viruses too.

I wanted to use the Weave plugin, but while looking for it I realized none of Ed Harvey's render effects are showing up in my paint.net. I even tried to run a search for them with the plugin browser, the only thing the browser came up with were links to the forums under the "Plugin Information".
So at the moment the known plugins I don't have are :

  • Dither
  • Lattice
  • Textile
  • Weave

However, I also did a search by author using the plugin browser, it came up with 33 Ed Harvey plugins installed. I'm pretty sure there are more than 33 plugins in this plugin pack.

It's true.  I just upgraded this plugin pack from 3.5 to 4.0 & lost three effects.  This helps explain where two of them went ...

 

Removed because they were rubbish!
[shout out loud if you REALLY want them back]
  • Render->Dither [ by popular demand, 'Dither' now in the Archives :) ]
  • Texture->Textile

 

As for Lattice and Weave, I don't know why they haven't made the cut.

I just wanted to drop in to say thanks to Ed for this plug-in pack. I've been using Paint.Net for several years but I specifically signed up to the forum today because I needed the search function to see what was going on with some of the effects like color tint.

Now all is well :)

Hello guys. Moderartor suggested I should try Ed's plugin for what I want to accomplish. What I want to accomplish is commercial photography by applying proper touch up for photos I made with my old digital camera. My photos even when shooting on sunlight do not have enough lighting plus it feels as camera also leaves green tint on photos. The process is removing background, putting object on white background and adjusting it by raising light levels so although artificially, it looks like it was shot with enough lighting. Applying color adjustment later would be bonus and not as required as lighting. To give you example for what I am looking for, here's a link to "Before - After" photo:

Can you view them?

Another problem is that I am not savvy in knowing terms and adjusting parameters. Would that be obstacle?

I notice you state the lattice effect is in this effects pack, but I do not see it anywhere in the Effects->Render... was it removed/renamed? if so how can I re-get it?! The only reason I got this pack was because I need a lattice effect and am having trouble finding. and now this pack deosn't even contain one :/

I've just replaced the 2012 version of EdHarvey.Effects.dll with the 1/20/2014 version, and now when I start Paint.Net I don't seem to have any of the plugins in it.  (E.g.,  soft saturation is gone, which I would have expected, but I don't have vibrance either.)

 

Is the problem simply that I'm still using Paint.Net  v3.5.11, rather than upgrading to 4?  (If not, any ideas what the problem is?)

Very likely.

Upgrade to 4.0.x already please. 3.5.11 is dead and you should not use it.

Red ochre, thanks for confirming my suspicions.

 

Rick: Yeah, I know, but I fear change (insert half a smiley here).  Too many times I've been burned by upgrading a program or operating system to the next version and finding that half of what I knew about it no longer applies and half the add-ons and plug-ins I loved with the old version don't work under the new one.  But yes, I will upgrade Real Soon Now, I promise.

 

Does anyone know the Windows 7 technique for installing Paint.Net 4 while still keeping 3.5.11 around and usable just in case (rather than outright replacing 3.5.11 with 4)?

Just rename the folder containing paint.net 3.5.11 before installing paint.net 4.0.x

I also feel this way, always fixing what isn't broken. 

I suggest you do what Red and Eli suggested you do. Thankfully for my sanity I did this a long time ago. 

 

     Unfortunately quite a few plugins that I use a lot do not work in the newer versions of PDN and a few built in ones work differently than they have in the older versions. I honestly try to use the new version of PDN from time to time but always give up because something is missing, or does not work the same, or the still occasional crash of the program. Frankly it is quite annoying.

    A couple plugins that I use frequently in the old version that do not work in the newest versions, are Radial Blur Deluxe, Polar Inversion Deluxe, Jumble, and the Mirror effect no longer mirrors top over bottom or bottom over top, it just flips the image over like the Flip Vertical tool under the Layers tab.

If you're experiencing crashes in the new version, then report them. I can't fix what I don't know about. When you see the list of bug fixes in each update, that is hugely a direct result of people sending me those crash logs.

 

Over time I'm going to have to be more stringent about the "no old versions" rule here on the forum. If you're sticking to the old version and not reporting bugs, then you're actively hurting Paint.NET.

I have a series of photos that were all taken with the white balance setting for the light.  When using photoshop (and NEF files) there is a real easy way to adjust the color temperature - the calibration, even seems accurate.   How can I adjust using Ed Harvey white balance?   I'm playing with it, but can't seem to get the continuous gradations to fix properly.  Am I using the wrong tool?  Alternatively, could anyone point me to a link that explains the relationship between the settings on the White Balance tool (ie, Hue and Amount) and color temperature?

 

Thanks so much in advance
