356 posts in this topic

Euhm.. I'm not sure, but.. The Rainbow Palette isn't a .DLL file.. It's just a text-document, wich isn't really text, but wich is coding :S.

Nice effects anyways, some were perfectly what I was looking for!

Read the 1st post so you will know what's going on

Window > Colors > More > Open Palettes Folder

I have also included an update to my Rainbow Palette.

Copy the file Rainbow Palette.txt to your My Documents/Paint.NET User Files/Palettes folder and you can select it in your color docker window.

BoltBait, I'm really new to Paint.net and have been reading and trying

many of the tuts and downloading many plug-in's.

Really getting my feet wet and got some weird looking things.

I got your plug-in pack installed into EFFECTS o.k. but now in your

article you talk about

1)Window > Colors > More > Open Palettes Folder and

2)Copy the file Rainbow Palette.txt to your My Documents/Paint.NET User Files/Palettes folder

I don't have any of these files/paths, course being new...I've missed something.

Would you help me establish my needs. Thanks.

No problem.

Open Paint.NET.

Open your colors window.

Click the little button that looks like a Folder with a Color wheel in it. (Just above your color wells.)

Click the "Open palettes folder..." menu item from the menu that opened.

This will open a file explorer window where the palette file needs to go. Copy my Rainbow Palette.txt file into that window (drag and drop the file into that window).

The next time you click the little button that looks like a Folder with a Color wheel in it, you should see "Rainbow Palette" in the list. Select it.

BoltBait, I misunderstood and thought you meant my Window folder in Operating System.

I followed your instruction, opened Paint.net and do not see the "colors Window".

I've trying to attach what my files are and hope you can read them and further direct me..

Here goes...

I'm talking about this window:

colorswindow.png

Click the folder button ("5") to see this menu:

palettesmenu.png

That's when you need to click the "Open Palettes Folder..." menu option and follow the instructions in my post above.

Good luck. 8)

Thanks BoltBait, I did it !! and I agree that your color palette is

more organized and eaiser to use. Thanks for your trouble.

One more favor to ask of you...could you direct me to a tut

that gives some step by step instruction on working with layers ?

I found a brief description of the layer, but I need to have more

explanation of how to apply the various effect, etc., onto the layer,

to un-check layers will working on active layer, I could go on with

questions...which seem hard to get out of my mouth on to paper..

Once again, Thanks. I am enjoying working with paint and don't want

to be a big trouble.

Thanks MiguelPereira , I have printed these descriptions and

read them many times, but still need something more basic

as to each step of working with each layer.

As an example, the following burn-in to an image is giving me

a problem when I make the new layer black and then place the

image in...the background turns white and should stay black.

The instructions are easy to follow, but I'm missing something.

Just my failure. Here's the tut.....

Alright. I've been having this problem for a long time now, with a lot of plugins. I just haven't gotten around to seeking help.

Running Windows XP, Paint.NET 3.31, and have .NET versions 1.1 1.1hotfix 2.0 and 3.0 installed.

Yata, I'm running the same setup and I don't see any problems. Seems like there must be something else going on there.

Did the plugin DLL files get corrupted? How about Paint.NET, is it corrupted? Are the DLL files "unblocked"?

No, no, and yes. I have no idea what to do. Should I uninstall and reinstall all my of .NET frameworks?

Yata, I would recommend taking ALL files out of your C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects folder. Then, put each plugin back in, one-by-one, testing Paint.NET each time.

What would I look for, then? To see if the feather plugin or another problematic plugin works?

Yes. That's exactly it.

I'm curious if another DLL is "messing" with my stuff.

In fact, you may want to uninstall Paint.NET and completely delete the Paint.NET directory before reinstalling a fresh copy of Paint.NET and then installing the effect DLL files one-by-one.

I found the .dll causing the mess: PaintDotNet.Base.dll. The file details say it was created by the Paint.NET team, though. Strange. Very strange. Mostly because it was located in the effects directory.

Hi, I am a really new user of Paint.NET, as well as a new user of this forum. BoltBait's Plugin Pack seems extremely useful, and I'm sure it would be if I could only download it! Each time I click on the link to the zip file, I get a 403 Forbidden message that says the website requires me to login- but I AM logged in! Does anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong or had similar problems?

P.S. It's not just BoltBait's Plugin Pack I am having trouble with- I get the same message whenever I try to download ANY plugin.

All help is appreciated!
