HOW TO INSTALL PLUGINS/General Plugin Troubleshooting Thread

1,182 posts in this topic

Once you have p;laced the feather effect plugin in the effects folder, in Paint.NET, you will find it in the Effects menu under Blurs.

And as for the second comment, some effects appear in Paint.NET's adjustment menu instead of effect menu.

I think the sig's fine Bob =-P

The sig is too big according to the forum rules. The maximum size of graphical sigs is 500px wide by 150px tall.

by the way.. if i may ask, how can i request plugins in here?

Just post a request in the General Discussion forum. That's no guarantee that a plugin will be written for you. But, if the idea is solid and "do-able" then I'm sure someone will take a shot at it.

Ok! I'm kinda upset, why is it not working for me? I got Vista, is that a problem? I moved the dll's for feather , light rays , jitter to the effects folder - C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects and nothing. i restarted PdN several times, restarted computer. Nothing. It is not in blur or adjustments , in fact all three are nowhere to be found under the menu buttons. Files are not "blocked". All permissions are set for system and administrator as well. Which is who i am since its my computer... So whats the deal !!!!?????

I'm pretty certain that there are more than a few forum members that use vista, so I don't think it should be.

(I use Vista. They work fine here)

Feather is in Effects > Blurs > Feather

Light Rays - Effects > Render > Light Rays

Jitter - Effects > Distort > Jitter

things to check:

you are using the latest version of Paint.NET:

3.08 or 3.10BETA

files are extracted from their ZIPs

feather is shipped as a dll, but light rays and jitter are both zipped.

make sure they downloaded and extracted properly.

-right click, properties, make sure the sizes are reasonable. around 6-8 KB for feather and jitter, around 20+ for light rays.

make sure Paint.NET is in fact installed to C:/Program Files/Paint.NET

This is installing plugins, NOT fonts.

Using search will get you the answer.

Okay, I'm really having trouble downloading plugins (I'm obviously new). IDK what I'm doing wrong, so help would be appreciated =]

Here's everything I'm doing (I'm downloading the Gradient Plugin) -

1)pdnea6.th.png

2)pdn2rb1.th.png

3)pdn3qb8.th.png

4)pdn4rl7.th.png

5)pdn5yt7.th.png

6)pdn7jk9.th.png

After doing that, nothing shows up in Effects (I've checked all the subs) or Adjustments. I know some previous people have been saying something about unblocking, but when I got to properties there's no 'unblock' option so I don't think that's the problem. Oh, and while I was doing all that ^^ PDN wasn't opened.

Help anyone??
