http://boltbait.googlepages.com/install[/url]":2ae8a]Once you have followed these instructions, you can run Paint.NET and click the "Effects" menu. You should see your new effect in that menu.

You run Paint.NET after the installation, not the file. Everything you need to know is in the website quoted many, many times already.

Hi!

Is ist possible, that plug ins can only be added if PDN ist installed in c:\programmfiles? It've installed it under c:\winprogs and ist did not work. After a reinstall under c:\programmfiles there was no problem.

Can you please be more specific yarii_x303, what troubles are you having exactly?

You say 'i still cant download plugins', are you have a problem with the download - in which case what plugin(s) - or are you hindered by a certain step of the installation of a plugin - again, which plugin and also at what point of the installation?

We can't help you very much with little to go on.

this doesnt help me at all, i still cant download plugins.

Like Myrddin said. We aren't psychic...

Also, are you just stating this for our information, or are you asking for more assistance ... ?

Read the tutorial more closely. You don't open the plugin with Paint.NET, you place it in the correct folder. Go back to the first page and follow the tutorial :-)

Does that help?

So...

I downloaded the pluggins, put them into the right file and restarted paint.net. However I still can't use any of the pluggins....? Any clues?

Which plugins did you try?

    Some plugins show up under different menus. For example, the Color Balance effect in my sig shows up under the Adjustments menu, not the Effects menu.

Did you remember to "unblock" them?

Are you running the latest version of Paint.NET?

    Many effects will not run on older versions of Paint.NET.

in your effects drop down menu you should find it under the 'Distort' selection sub menu.

or if you installed it while paint.net was open you will have to restart the program.

where do u get the plugins i cant find one to download it

They are all in this Forum section. Choose a plugin topic which sounds appealing and the plugin will have a link on the first post along with description, instructions, and/or screenshots.

Click this example to see what I mean.

The link to the download may contain '.zip' or '.dll' at the end, so this may help to find it.

Does this clear it up?
