Magnifier (Lens+) (ymd:100726)
Posted 26 July 2010 - 01:24 PM
This plugin is added to the menu Effects, submenu Distort.
It is a evolution of the Ed Harvey's Lens. I had a discussion with him about it to have his agreement to publish my version.
The improvements are :
- offset: to move the center.
- independant slider for vertical/horizontal radius.
- range from -200 up to 400.
- anti aliasing
Here is the DLL
The source is available with the plugins package!
How to install
Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects
The User interface
...Choose the amount (negative values will flip the image).
...Choose the radius for X & Y.
...Move the center using the offset.
...Select the quality. The antialiasing is working on the selection area. To avoid to blur the whole picture first create a selection...
