MosaicManiac

Introducing "Mosaic Maniac Collage Paint" plugin

55 posts in this topic

I suggest that you provide some sample images for mosaic painting in your first post - like those flowers.

Good suggestion.

I added direct links in my original post.

More images used in my examples can be downloaded from http://mosaicmaniac.com/?c=TabDownload (bottom of the page)

I think this is a bug, maybe its only for me.
The first one looks like a bug.

You bring an interesting issue in your second point I've wandered about.

Technically, you do need a background to match the right image and apply color correction.

What happens if there is no background? Currently I ignore transparencies.

It seems to me like it's the right thing to do and it allows for some interesting compositions,

like this one:

978_palma_morze.png

Notice none of the photographs in this photomosaic are clipped as they would be if area selection was used.

This was created by selecting everything in the picture but the palm tree with a magic wand and making it transparent.

Rendering the photo mosaic using "Effects -> Collage Paint" and then resetting transparency back to opaque (255).

This is such a wicked cool plugin. I had it with the old version of PdN and I am so relieved to find that you have updated it. It runs so much faster now. Great stuff ! I will use this more and more. You da man !

I have it installed in Paint.NET 4.09 and it works fine for me. You will find it in the effects folder: EFFECTS>Artistic>Collage Paint...

There is also another effect called Custom Random Filler made by Mr Technorobbo. It can fill a selection with images as well but it does not build a picture like Mosaic Maniac.

This plugin does not work at all in the latest version of PDN.  At least I can't get it to do anything. 

The progress bar just keeps going, going and going.  I went and took a shower, came back, and it was was still 'working'.

I canceled it.  There were no error messages, though...

@lynxster4 The images size you are using to make the mosaic should not be larger than 255 pixels :)

Thanks, @Eli   Still not working. I've even lost the green in the progress bar.  Should mention I'm on Windows 10.  Oh well...:(

I'm at work now, on Windows 7, with the latest version of PDN....still not working.  The green progress bar just keeps going on and on.

I only have (2) images in my folder for this test.  So, something is broken.  I suspect this plugin will not work in version 4.0.13.

I see Eli is using 4.0.9...I don't know what version Seerose is using.

Maybe this needs to be documented as 'Not Compatible' with latest version or I'm completely stupid and not using this right.  :lol:

 

UPDATE:  I got it to work on Windows 7...some very lovely results.  Will test again at home.  It may be a Windows 10 thing!

I too am on version 4.0.13 and it's not working.  Like you I get two windows pop up and they just hang and go round and round.

Add my voice to the list. Just installed it on my WIN10 system and nothing happens with my folder of pics > all less than 256. At least it doesn't crash paint.

No error report to provide though. Makes diagnosing very difficult I'm sure.

Update to my previous post.

I'm home on Windows 10 and for the life of me, this plugin will not work.

I'm tempted to say it's a Win10 problem, if it wasn't for Eli's above post.

I'm stumped. If I want to use this plugin, I have to do it at work.  :(

I tried an experiment on my old laptop, with paint.net version 3.5.11, and the first time I tried it, I got something to work ...... but it did not show up the images in the white area properly, which was supposed to be little blue butterflies.

Then, when I tried to use it once more in 3.5.11 it would not work again AT ALL. 

 

So weird that it works for @Eli in Windows 10 and v4.0.13 - must be something in the air ............ or, we need to drink some French wine :D.  I tried Italian and it didn't work :lol:.
