This stream auto-updates   

  1. Today
  2. Hi guys, a long time PDN user, first time poster. I need to automate a very specific kind of effect. What I want is to sort of displace the center of elements while stretching one side and contracting the other... Left is the original image, right is the processed one: The difference is that the centre of the original image has been shifted to the right. This image was processed manually so it's not precise, but it shows the general goal. I need a way to apply such a transformation to many elements. This is a small fraction of an actual data map that contains hundreds of such elements. The gradients can be different in orientation. It would be very problematic to do manually for each element, exactly because they are oriented randomly. Is there a plugin that may help me with this? If there is no such plugin, maybe someone can point me to how I can write my own?
  3. @barbieq25, I'm glad you're in a better place! Never underestimate relaxation. And WOW, I love those maple leaves!
  4. Thank you @Woodsy. They maple leaves were a different way of working for me. Happens sometimes. I got called away in the middle of it. Great theme though.
  5. Life on a Green Planet is pretty cool but now after @hippiechossaid they reminded them of chocolate wrappers, I see it too! THe animation is astounding! Yep! Holy cow!!
  6. Woodsy, @MadJikalso wrote some very cool tutes.
  7. @Woodsy, thank you for this comment. I'm calling it "My Pictorium" link under my sig. old stuff
  8. No, that's a different crash. Olden is sending bad data to another built-in plugin. NormalMapPlus is trying to access memory that it doesn't have permission for. I'll file a bug though ... I may need to block both of these plugins if there isn't a reasonable workaround I can find.
  9. @Pixey - Another blond moment?

Another Simon Brown plugin that fails to function in the new O/S PaintNet environment. @Willy McCoy Also read https://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/111478-paintnet-4016-crashes-when-i-select-tools/#comment-532219 @Ego Eram Reputo @Rick Brewster Same issue as Olden.
  11. I'm still not sure, however I'll give you a couple of suggestions: 1. Save your image as a PNG because these images support transparency (JPG does not). 2. If you're deleting part of an image and you want to soften the edge where the transparent pixels appear, try AA's Assistant or BoltBait's Feather
  12. Yesterday
  13. Nice abstracts Madjik! I really like your work! BTW, thank you for all the plugins you've written. I love to use them and they've pulled me out of a jam many times. I'm really surprised you haven't started a gallery of your own.
  14. Barbieq I love the two that you posted yesterday! I'm especially drawn to the one with the flowers! It's a perfect combination of the Cactus flower and the metal. I really like the red Maple leaf too! Too bad you weren't able to enter it in the competition.
  15. Like when you want to remove some of the white of your picture, in the signature, to give it tranceparency without making the head or everything else look weird.
  16. I'm having trouble understanding what you are asking. I suspect English is not your first language? Can you post an example of what you want to do?
  17. Glad to hear it
  18. I've been getting a lot of crash reports with Olden. I may be able to fix it for 4.0.17 ... but if not, I may need to block it :-\
  19. No i mean in like, getting the perfect outline of a fictional character, that the black border covering it dont look weird, when transparence is added.
  20. Beautiful indeed .
  21. The Independence Day Poll is now open until Saturday 1st July, 2017. Good Luck everyone and thank you for your entries .
  22. Installed the plug in, (vers 4.0.16) tested it and it worked great. Went to actually use it about a week later and it errors out with this message every time now. File: C:\Program Files\paint.net\Effects\NormalMapPlus.dll Effect Name: NormalMapPlus.NormalMapPlus Full error message: PaintDotNet.WorkerThreadException: Worker thread threw an exception ---> System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory.

  23. > delete> Sorry, please ignore the crash log ....... I didn't have the Math.dll in my effects folder .
  24. @AndrewDavid ....Wonderful animation! I love it!! (Big Star Trek fan!)
  25. Here's something new I want to share. A tribute to the GIF capabilities of paint-net. Sorry you cant see the AVI I made with music with it. That file turned out to be 100MB http://fav.me/dbdz1yd
