  2. Vanishing Trails is similar to pyrochild's classic Trail plugin, but adds perspective. The plugin (Version 2.0, Sept. 12, 2020): Vanishing Trails.zip The Help menu describes the controls: The User Interface: Most of the controls are self-explanatory, but the Spacing Adjustment may require some explanation. Consider the left (red) ellipse in this example: When interpreted as an ellipse perpendicular to the viewing direction, the spacing makes sense. However, if it's interpreted as a tilted circle

I present Parrot Paradise Hope you enjoy them! 😊 (Both are clickable)

  4. Over here.... https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116364-math-support-latex/... physics_teacher asked if there was a way to "render on-the-fly latex in my diagrams". Unbelievably, my masterful Dr Scott's Markup Renderer was not doing the job. Wha....? Anyway, I decided to write a much smaller and more specific plugin to render Math LaTeX equations using paint.net. Download it by hitting the big blue button >> Download Installation: Unzip the file Copy both DLL files to one of these two locations (depending on which version

  6. Mise En Abyme creates a recursive picture-within-a-picture, like on the Quaker Oats box, often also referred to as the Droste effect. The plugin DLL (versions 1.1.0, 24 Oct 2020): Mise En Abyme_1.1.0.zip The region in which the canvas image is copied is determined by the selection. The plugin is in the Selection (not the Distort) menu for two reasons. First it requires a selection; second, the Distort menu is getting quite crowded -- at least mine is. The Help Menu: Mise En Abyme recursively copies the canvas image into a selection to achie

I can only hope that everyone on here and their families keep safe, isolate if instructed, look after yourselves, but also look out for your elderly family and neighbor's.. these will be challenging and life changing times for everyone for a long time to come. Take care everyone.

  14. A dark theme is now installed! Keep in mind, the theme is maintained by a third party, so we can only give it minimal support. If it breaks in the future, we may just uninstall it.

  15. Hello, I want to share with you my take on redesigned paint.net icon which would fit better with new Microsoft's fluent icons. I made two versions, first one more classic, second one simpler a bit more readable. Higher res: https://imgur.com/a/u5mvXqC

  16. A simple method that works surprisingly well is: - Put a black-and-white ray image in the lower layer. - Put a high-contrast black-and-white picture in the top layer (perhaps strictly black and white, though it doesn't have to be). - Set the top layer's Blending Mode to Overlay. - Apply a Gaussian blur to the lower layer. For a 800x600 image, I used a blur radius of 2. - After the layers are merged, the contrast and brightness can be tweaked, if desired. Photo>Sharpen may also be useful. Voila!

  19. Hi @Fiz, Out of curiosity I tried to achieve the effect you want with your image. This is what I got: And this is how I got it: 1. Open your file (as it is). 2. Image > Canvas Size > Width = 1200 Height = 1200 Anchor = Middle (so you get a 1200x1200 pic). 3. Run the plugin: 4. Add new layer > Paint Bucket = White. 5. Merge that layer down (so it becomes the white background for the Music spiral). Play with the plugin options - it is possible. Mine is only a rough attempt. Good luck. 🎵

  21. Hello friends! Today I'll be showing you how to use PDN to emulate Pool Caustics. First things first: what are Pool Caustics? A caustic is just a fancy word for the little shimmery light thingies you see under water. Here's an example: The big boys at NVIDIA and the other graphics folks want you to think you need to do ray tracing, and use GPUs, and simulate fluid dynamics to get these nice rings, but I'm here to tell you they're lying to you. We can do this 2000's style: back when computers only had 1 processing unit, and everyone hated Justin Bieber. All you nee

  22. This plugin allows HEIC images to be loaded and saved with transparency, and adds a few more options when saving. It replaces Paint.NET's built-in HEIC support. This plugin may produce smaller files than Microsoft's encoder for grayscale images. For most color images Microsoft's encoder is faster and produces smaller files. Compatibility: 4.2.14+ Installation: 1. Close Paint.NET. 2. Place HeicFileTypePlus.dll, HeicFileTypePlusIO_x86.dll and HeicFileTypePlusIO_x64.dll in the Paint.NET FileTypes folder which is usually loca

  24. Over the years, there have been many reports of crashes with this plugin. I believe I have fixed the issue, but I need some people to test the plugin and make sure it still functions 100% properly.

  27. Two new images. Partly to test how to link a big thumbnail back to a larger image (hosted on my own site). The first 'Bad moon rising' relates to the current tragic epidemic. Sadly it seems today's courageous medics and carers have little more protection than the 'plague doctors' of the past. In the larger image the pseudo-random pixel patterns suggest demonic faces to me, probably just an 'inkblot' (Rorschach) effect. The second is the result of various geometrical distortions ... which I find strangely erotic... just my sordid mind then!😄
