Learn to edit your post, not double post.

Download the plugin again and update it.

I need some help installing the Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.DropShadow.dll: The "Drop Shadow" effect, under the Stylize effect menu.

I tried adding it, then I close my PdN program and reopen it, but I still can't find the Drop Shadow effect nowhere in "Stylize Effect Menu". I've tried this like 3 times now, but it still won't show. I've added other plug-ins before, but this is the first one I've added that won't show anywhere in the menu. Help anyone? :(

Did you also include the Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.dll?

Here are some snippets from his first post:

UPDATE: I heard your feedback. The effects are now split over six dll's (+ the framework one, always required) and the submenus should be ok now.

Effects per DLL:


    [*:3vcs6enb] Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.dll: You allways need this dll. It includes the framework used by the other dll's.
    [*:3vcs6enb] Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.DropShadow.dll: The "Drop Shadow" effect, under the Stylize effect menu. With offset, widening, blur and a color picker.

Wow, thanx a lot BoltBait, I must've overlooked that part. I went ahead and added that .dll file as well and there it was, the drop shadow effect. Thanx again BoltBait, I really appreciate your help and quick response :D

This isn't working for me. I have it downloaded, with the .dll thing, and it shows up in the stylize list, but when I try to use it, nothing happens. The image stays the same no matter how many times I use it or with what settings, it stay the same.

Drop Shadow requires some transparent area around your object in order to put the shadow in. So, be sure the layer you're working on has some transparent area.

Okay I've read all the posts about the problems/fixes for getting this to work and it's still a no go for me.

Do I unzip the plugin and put it in the effects folder like I did in the past? What should the folder structure look like?

My folder structure looks like this:

C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\Vandermotten.PaintDotNet.Effects

Inside the Vandermotten.PaintDotNet.Effects folder I have:

Properties (folder)

Resources (folder)

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.Samples.dll

src.V3.2.zip (zip file)

Vandermotten.PaintDotNet.Effects.sln

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.Blurs.dll

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.dll

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.DropShadow.dll

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.Duotones.dll

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.FadeEdge.dll

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.Monochromes.dll

I have no 'compatible' folder as mentioned in another post. I downloaded the plugin from the direct link. I am using v3.35 of pdn and running WinXP if it's relevant. Do I have to register the dlls? I'm at a loss.

Thanks in advance.

Directly under C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\ (no subfolder!), place the dlls:

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.dll (This one is mandatory)

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.Samples.dll

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.Blurs.dll

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.DropShadow.dll

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.Duotones.dll

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.FadeEdge.dll

Vandermotten.PaintDotNetEffects.Monochromes.dll

Each of the effect dlls is optional, but of course, you need at least one.
