A Book Folding Plug-in


 


Menu: Effects->Object


 


This plugin is for folding books into decorative designs.


This is not an image effect.


 


It generates an Excel Spreadsheet for Book Folding


 


These Links may explain

Ok, I have watched the video of someone folding paper, read the posts in the provided links, read the plugin description, opened a picture, ran the plugin,(nothing happened) it asked me to save the file (the one where nothing happened) called a csv in my documents folder, when I clicked the file it opened up in Excel a series of numbers in columns.

My questions - Is this a plugin for folding and creating an image in paint.net ?  or just some generator for Excel printing  references ?

@NN - I think one needs an actual book, after using the Plugin to make the measurements.  Looks like a LOT of work - Phew!

Well, look at the bright side, now you know how to recycle last year's phonebook or an old encyclopedia (you could read a few entries while doing it).   :D

Thanks Pixey. I was under the impression it was an effect plugin.

I made the request for the awesome pixelcounter2. It has been a huge hit with our book folding groups on Facebook. Here is the result of a pattern generated with the plugin.

Hi Mandy.  You have to install the downloaded plugin from the first post.  Here is how to install it before you can use it.

Hi, I downloaded Paint.net, then downloaded pixelcounter2 and added it to the effects as instructed. How do I get the lines on the image to then use pixelcounter? Just as a black and white image the counter went troppo with over 7000 measurements?! Attached is the image I would like to use. TIA

I've saved your picture and will work with it this afternoon. The picelcountet2 does not require the lines as it is intended to be a cut pattern with many measurements. If you want a regular pattern with one fold per page then you must either add white lines yourself by removing pixels or select a white graph line pattern over the image.

Hi Heather, I would like to cut this pattern so no need for white lines. Thanks for your help, it's a bit frustrating at the moment trying to get this to work! :)

Your file associations are messed up. Adobe should not be trying to open or extract a zip.
