    Thank you very much for this plugin, MJW, although you think that it's not too exciting. I do like it and even made a YouTube video about it. View Framer on YouTube Because it's in German, I additionally made English captions - I hope there are not that much mistakes. Thanks again for your efforts in creating this plugin.

    This is a hotfix that fixes a crash in the Magic Wand tool. As usual, you can download the update directly from the website, or you can use the built-in updater via Settings –> Updates –> Check Now. The only change since 4.0.14, which you can read about here, is this: Fixed a crash in the Magic Wand tool if it was used twice in a row with a selection mode other than Replace. Technically, it's not "twice in a row" that causes the crash. It's actually just using the Magic Wand tool, with a selection mode other than Replace, on any selection that is "pixelated". There are two common sources of pixelated selections: the Magic Wand tool, and the Rectangle Select tool. "Pixelated" selections are comprised solely of straight horizontal or vertical segments whose endpoints are at integer coordinates. This distinction is important because there are some great optimizations you can take advantage of when the data fits into this limitation. Sadly, one of my optimizations fell over in 4.0.14. *phew*! Enjoy

    Congratulations on the Galleria award and well done Pixey for nominating. It's high time you started a gallery too! Really good suite of height map effects. Thanks. (Just realised I'm using the original version of texture shader.) Some of my experiments:

    This is a release version of a plugin I began almost exactly a year ago ago. The plugin is intended to aid in editing a region within a larger image, allowing the layers to be moved around the region without losing the areas outside the region. The View Framer is located under Effects>Render. The biggest improvement over the beta version is the addition of a scale factor to allow the image to be edited at a higher resolution than the final version. The View Framer surrounds the region with a semi-transparent background and optional guidelines. The result looks like: As the Help file describes it: View Framer renders a guide to frame a rectangular region within the image. The view frame should be rendered into a separate layer above the image layers. To create a flattened version of the region, the view area can be selected uisng the Magic Wand, and then copied into the new image using Copy Merged followed by Paste into New Image. The controls are: Width: The width of the view frame, before scaling. Height: The height of the view frame, before scaling. Scale: The amount to scale the view frame. Because the scaled width and height are converted to integers, non-integer scaling factors may alter the view frame's aspect ratio. The scaling factor is clamped so that the view frame is always inside the image. Location: The location of the view frame. Because the view frame must always fit inside the image, this is not the location of the view frame center. Background Color: The color of the region outside the view frame. The choices are Black and White. Background Opacity: The opacity of the region outside the view frame. Guideline Thickness: The thickness of guidelines drawn around the view frame. Specifying zero thickness disables the guidelines. Extend Guidelines: When checked, the guidelines will be extended to the image boundaries. Horizontal Guideline Color: The color of the horizontal guidelines. Selecting None disables the horizontal guidelines. Horizontal Guideline Opacity: The opacity of the horizontal guidelines. Use Horizontal Color and Opacity for Vertical Guidelines: When checked, the color and opacity of the veritcal guidelines will be match the horizontal values. Vertical Guideline Color: The color of the vertical guidelines. Selecting None disables the vertical guidelines. Vertical Guideline Opacity: The opacity of the vertical guidelines. The User interface: Because I wanted to add a few features that aren't available to CodeLab plugins, it's a Visual Studio project. I'll try to post the project to a public site soon. Here is the plugin: ViewFramer.zip

    @PaintNetRus If you disable antialiasing when creating the gradient you should not have the problem when using the Magic Wand at 0 % Tolerance.

    You can try a tool like Recuva to restore mistakenly deleted images.

    And what is the question? How to do this? Put your image in/as the background layer. Make a new (initial transparent) layer above this. Choose primary color (blue) and fill the new layer with the paintbucket. (If you choose for the blue direct a value for Opacity-Alpha, step 4 is unneccessary) Change for this layer in the layer options the value for opacity. Another way: Use a plugin like Color Balance+, ColorTint (EdHarveys Effects), Manual color... or similar to change the initial background image without additional layers.

    To proof that here is no problem, I've made a small demonstration video (1,32 MB, don't have a Youtube channel): Download-Link
