Paint.NET 4.0 & Photo Flood Fill Plug-In?

15 posts in this topic

Hi

 

Will Photo Flood Fill Plug-In? be ever Updated for use with Version 4?

 

Ever Since I Updated to Paint,net 4 Photo Flood Fill is a No Show on the Effects Menu!

 

Is there any other way to Add Textures to Selections?

I mean Every Just about Paint Program That I Have seen can add Textures using their Bucket Tool.

 

Why not Paint.net?

 

 

Thanks

Frank

Renda4,

 

Paint.NET 4 isn't even officially released yet.  Photo Flood Fill might be updated before it is, but it might not be.  Someone else might write a replacement that does work with v4, but they might not.  It remains to be seen.

 

As for why it's not part of the core Paint.NET - well, you have to understand that only one person works on this free project in his spare time.  Most projects of that type don't go past one or two versions.

 

As Cmdr. Tucker says in Star Trek Enterprise, "Keep yer shirt on, Lieutenant."  ;)

What you may try is Fill and Stroke of the path tools.

You may create a closed path and set the fill to a texture image in a file.

Attached is a really simple "Fill from file" plugin that works on 4.0.

<snip>

 

It shows up under the "Effects > Render > Fill from file" menu.

Yes, I know that without a "File Open" dialog box, it pretty much sucks to use this. I'll build a better one later.

Install the normal way.

 

EDIT: This has been added to my new plugin pack. Download it there.

Radius Fill Corners resides in Effects > Fill.  A submenu made for your plugin?

Good idea.

I fixed the dll and reattached it to the above post.

The 14 of you that downloaded it, please do it again. :)

You probably have the zip file installed instead of the DLL files. So, unzip the file and try that.

OR

You have the DLL files installed in the wrong directory. It happens. To fix this, find your Paint.NET icon on the desktop and right-click on it. Choose Properties from the drop down menu. On the properties screen, click the Open File Location button. Double-click on the Effects folder. THAT's where you need to put the dll files.

OR

You're not running the latest Paint.NET 4.0 beta build. These plugins don't work with 3.5x, sorry.

After reading and trying all that, if you still can't get it to work, wait for Rick Brewster to write a plugin manager.

Why not a new thread for these plugins BoltBait?

Because they only work in 4.0.

I'll eventually post a thread for them in the plugin forum when 4.0 ships.

Aha.  Good answer.  I must amend the Index accordingly.

I have compiled these plugins to work on Paint.NET 3.5.11 and 4.0+ and I have started a new thread for these plugins in the plugin forum.

Please continue the discussion there: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/28556-

Closed.
