Paste%20Frame.png?raw=1

 

Paste%20Frame2.png?raw=14

 

A few tips

  • When using copy disable antialising selection 
  • Paste to it's own image and copy again to avoid any fringing
  • The frame image continuity works best if the frame size and the image have a common divisor 800X600 works great with 10,50,100 
  • Select the graphic at the targetted corner point - in this example, from middle of the heart to the middle of the heart

Slow down ... I can't keep up! :D
(I'm still exploring what 'Third dimension' can do)
Another very useful plugin.
Once again many many thanks. ;) :beer:

Thanks Red, great graphics!!! Looks like an amusement Park.

Eli suggested it and it sounded relatively simple so....

I went to bed and woke up with a new plugin (Pixey, I think TR is a bot ;)).

 

TR This is exactly what I wanted. The corners look good. There is a little problem with mirroing however. I also tried on a large canvas and the border size was too thin even at 100.

Post Edit: Also, in order to have perfect symmetry at the corners why not start the tiling at the corners and blend the tiled image at the center.

sorry about that, I missed a 180 flip at the second pass (bottom) and that threw the rest out of sync (I should have tested with a different image). I increased the max border size to 300 - looks wild with smaller images but .

 

V1.1 ready for download!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy Moly - I can't believe the prowess of this bot @TR Plugin generator.  I don't believe his brain stops, even in his sleep ;)

It works great!

Two more requests to make this great plugin even better :

Could you add an option to load a picture (png) and take advantage of transparency?

Some people may want just an image tiled all around without any mirroing or flipping.

That's 3 requests.

All possible but it would require a more sophisticated interface than Code Lab can give us. I would have to move the project to VS. It shouldn't be too hard. Transparency would only be available from a file. 

 

Seerose - Nice frame job- I like those little furbie thingies you used as a frame.

Wonderful. I do not mind waiting.

I hope you all are around when I retire so I can play full time. That is going to be 30 years from now... I should be 80 :lol: .

Thank you Miss Nite Nurse 79. Nice frame design. If I could +1 you I would. But sadly I am out yet again.

I will have to get you when the reputation Gods bless me with more.

You did it! With the new features the plugin is versatile.  Thanks.

 

I do not know what other feature could be added. Maybe just increase the border size to 500 (for a very large canvas).

I agree with Goonfella, ALL credit goes to TR. I only sent a wish and TechnoRobbo granted it. Christmas came early for me. :)

 

Thanks TR for the fix and increasing the border size. I find that the quality of the frame is better when applied to a large canvas.

 

Just in case you are curious... What else do I have on my wishing list? Well... another pluging that will work on irregular shapes, selections or objects more or less like drawing an outline but instead of drawing a solid line, it will allow the insertion of images like Paste Frame does. I think I am being too greedy.
