Introducing "Stencil"

20 posts in this topic

This plugin is a part of the "Jesse Chunn Plugin Pack" and can be downloaded here

This plugin will turn an image (or selection) into a two color image similar to a stencil.

Settings:

Bias: More primary color or more secondary color.

Invert: Swap primary and secondary colors.

The left side of these images are the original, the right side had "Stencil" applied with default settings (different primary and secondary colors):

file.php?id=1347

file.php?id=1348

Enjoy,

Jesse Chunn

Is it basically the same thing as using Brightness/Contrast and then changing the black to one color, and the white to another?

It is similar to setting contrast to 100%, yes, but with obvious differences.

Not that obvious, but it seems that it does a better job than Brightness/Contrast on lower quality JPGs (B/C leaves squares and rectangles, while Stencil makes smoother curves). I'd like to see anti-aliasing in there though. Thanks a bunch!

Well, by obvious I just meant that you can tweak it a little more... after re-reading my post, that could have sounded sarcastic... that was not the intent.

I could add anti-alias (or at least my version of anti-alias) but that would seem to defeat the point. I suppose it could make sense as an option... I'll consider that.

Didn't sound sarcastic at all to me :P

Antialias is easily done by hand, by separating both colors, but selecting the different zones might turn out to be a bit laggy. So, I encourage you to add it as an option.

Put it in your Paint.net-Folder in the subfolder Effects, restart Paint.net if it is running and search the Effect-entry in Effects -> Artistic -> Stencil

Of course. And maybe you learn something about changing privileges for special folders to avoid such errors in the future.
