  5. Here is what I consider my "Essential", award winning , plugin pack for Paint.NET v4.2.12 and beyond. It includes 46 plugins in 36 files, 1 palette file, and 48 shapes. This allows you to pick and choose to install only the effects you want. Then, later you can run the installer and uncheck an item to uninstall it. When you see in this post, you can click it for more information (including source code in some cases). To install, download this file to your Desktop, unzip it, and run the install program. Download Donate I'm going through a really tough financial time right now, so anything you can spare would be much appreciated. Which of my plugin packs is right for you? You need to look at the Paint.NET version number in the title bar. Classic: Download: 3.5.11 https://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/8318-b 4.0.x https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/32048-b 4.2.12+ You're in the right place! Click the download button above (surrounded by blue arrows) Windows Store version of paint.net: You're in the right place! Click the download button above When you see the main screen (shown below), select the "I'm running the store version of Paint.NET" checkbox. Installer / Plugin Manager: Once you click the download button above and open the zip file, run the included install.exe file. You'll see this: When the installer first runs, it updates the check boxes to what's currently installed (checked for installed, unchecked for not installed). However, if nothing is installed, it automatically checks ALL the boxes figuring the user would like to install everything. Carefully review each line and make sure the items you wish to install are checked. When you click the Install button, checked items will be installed and unchecked items will be uninstalled from your system. For high volume network managers: Plugin Manager has a silent install function... for more information: C:\> install /? New for this pack: I have gone through all of my plugins and redesigned the User Interface (UI) for each with the goal of making the UI dialog box shorter. With shorter UI's, less of your image will be covered by the effect UI while you're working on it. For example, here is a comparison of the previous version of Gradient (left) and the new version (right): I have always been a fan of shorter UI's and in this pack I take advantage of some new functionality in Paint.NET v4.2 that allows for a more compressed look. Help: If you need help with an individual effect, look for the question mark "?" in the top right corner of the effect UI (near the X) and click it. Once you install this plugin pack, here's what you get: Adjustments menu Black and White+ Use selected method for converting a color photograph into B&W. Color Balance Easily adjust the tint of an image. Useful for color correcting photographs taken indoors without flash. The difference between this and the built-in Hue/Saturation adjustment is that this one will affect black and white areas. Combined Adjustments All of your favorite adjustments on one screen. Hue/Saturation+ Conditional Hue / Saturation effect. Temperature/Tint Temperature / Tint effect. Transparency Adjust the transparency of a selection just like you can adjust it for an entire layer. Effects menu Flip Horizontal - flips the selection on the vertical axis. Similar to the layer flip of the same name. Flip Vertical - flips the selection on the horizontal axis. Similar to the layer flip of the same name. Effects > Artistic menu Dream This makes your picture look like it was seen in a dream. Oil Painting+ Makes your photographs look painted. Pastel This makes your picture look like it was drawn with pastel chalk or water color paint. Effects > Blurs menu Gaussian Blur Plus - With it, you can blur only the Red, Blue, Green, or Alpha channel of the image. It also allows you to blend the original picture with the blurred image. (Try blurring all channels of the image with a radius of 10 and a Darken blend mode. Cool stuff.) Effects > Fill From Clipboard Fills the current selection with the graphic on the clipboard. From File Fills the current selection with a graphic file. Effects > Object menu An "object" is a group of pixels on a layer that is completely surrounded by transparent pixels (or the edge(s) of the canvas). These are useful when doing "cutouts" or with text on a new layer. Bevel Object This effect allows you to make objects 3D. Works great with text! Feather This effect softens the edges of objects. Inner Shadow Renders a shadow on objects so they look like they have been cut out. Object Shadow Renders a shadow behind objects. Outline - This effect puts an outline of the selected color around your object. Paste Alpha - This effect takes the graphic on the clipboard and converts the colors to shades of gray and then uses that for the alpha values of the current layer. Useful for using masks. Switch Alpha to Gray - This effect converts the image to shades of gray based on the alpha value of each pixel. Useful for making masks. Switch Gray to Alpha - This effect deletes white from and image and converts all other pixels to black. Useful for isolating line art. Effects > Photo menu Combined Adjustments Many adjustments for photographs all on one screen Level Horizon Rotate an image by drawing a line across the horizon. Meme Maker Create your own Memes. Remove Dust Removes little white dust particles by clone stamping them out. I find this very helpful when scanning photographs. Sharpen Landscape Makes your landscape photographs look like they belong in a magazine! Seam Carving - Reduce height Reduce the height of an image without scaling (squishing) the image. Seam Carving - Reduce width Reduce the width of an image without scaling (squishing) the image. Vignette+ Extends the capabilities of the built-in Vignette effect with colors and the ability to render a vignette to a blank canvas. Effects > Render menu Calendar Render a monthly calendar. Month name and Days of the week are localized. Includes many options. Charts and Graphs Like a mini spreadsheet, enter your data and plot a graph! Dimensions This doesn't measure anything. It just renders the dimension arrows and label text. Flames This effect allows you to render flames. It is based on Tom Jackson's excellent fire tutorial. Gradients Render colorful HSV (rainbow) gradients. Grid / Checkerboard Create checker board or grid patterns. Polygon / Stars This effect allows you to render triangles, pentagons, hexagons, etc. It also allows you to render stars. It is useful in making standard shapes and the pointed edges of stickers. Effects > Selection menu Effects in this menu perform their effect by following the selection outline (marching ants). While they will work with a square selection (or no selection by using the edges of the canvas as their path), they are more interesting when the selection is curved , selected by hand , or by magic wand . Bevel Selection This effect allows you to make selections 3D. Works great with text! Blur Selection Edge - This effect feathers the edges of a selection using the surrounding colors instead of transparency. Useful when the selection is not surrounded by transparent pixels. Feather Selection This effect softens the edges of your selection. It works just like the feather in other graphic$ program$. Inner Shadow Selection Renders a shadow on the inside of a selection so it looks like it has been cut out. Outline Selection This effect allows you to outline a selection. Effects > Stylize menu Floyd-Steinberg Dithering This effect will reduce the colors of your image using the Floyd-Steinberg dithering technique. Effects > Text formations Creative Text Pro Creates professional looking 3D text. Outlined / Gradient text Creates text that is outlined with a selected color and filled with a solid color or a gradient. User "xod" has published a version of this plugin with even more features. If you find that my plugin isn't enough, install his. Window > Colors > More > Open Palettes Folder I have also included my Rainbow Palette. This is very popular on the forums. In the Color docker window, click the button and choose Rainbow from the list. This is what the Rainbow Palette looks like: Custom Shapes This plugin pack also includes 48 custom shapes. In the installer, you can pick-and-chose which ones you want. This pack supersedes my plugins available elsewhere. I will be updating the other locations eventually, but if you want the latest versions, download my plugins from this post. Enjoy. Also, for you luddites that refuse to use the installer, here's a zip file with all the DLL's in it: BoltBaitPack51DLLs.zip How to install Paint.NET plugins. BoltBaitPack51.zip

  7. Dear @barbieq25 and @MJW it was actually not my Birthday - which is in January - this was posted, by mistake by @Manc. The header should have been edited earlier, in order to alert you all ................. but it did make for an interesting thread anyway 😂 So be sure to watch for the 4th January next year 🥂🎉

  8. Sorry I missed wishing you happy birthday, Pixey. Due to a careless power-company subcontractor, I had no Internet service from Thursday to Monday.

  9. btw @midora are you aware that your OptionBasedLibrary is basically broken because it assumes effect loading is single-threaded?

  10. Microsoft has set the release date for October 5. That's only five weeks away, and it seems a bit premature to me. Don't get me wrong; I think there's a lot of great stuff in Windows 11. But I also think there's a few areas I think could have used a bit more attention and polish. Then again, they've also said they won't be sending it through Windows Update until early 2022, so I guess they have time to improve things before most people actually use it.

  11. No Time to Die will now premiere in October (in the USA). Even though the movie was finished and ready to go, the release has been delayed 23 months. I really liked Skyfall, but I thought the plot Spectre was very dull. I hope in this next one things get better.

  12. While browsing the GRAFNET website, I found a free DSB Flux filter by Mario Klingemann. Inside the zip file is the texturizer folder, which contains 99 prepared textures in .psd format for the Texturizer filter. Create a folder Textures in a convenient place for you (in my case Documents\paint.net User Files\Textures), where you will collect and store your textures and move the contents of the texturizer folder from the zip file there.

  14. If you do not depend on the original 256 colors then just use the default settings and press ok. Just to finish the sentence 😉 No idea why I have to fight with this forum in the last months. But tries to edit my post always return with "This comment can no longer be edited. It may have been moved or deleted, or too much time may have passed since it was posted for it to be edited."

  16. You are correct, Pixey. I think booster shots begin some time this month. But people whose immune systems are compromised can get it now. 🙂 This copied from Google search page: Is the Covid booster the same as first shot? Yes, the Pfizer and Moderna booster shots will be the same as the first and second doses that you already received.
