  1. Greetings. I'm trying to understand how the metalize plugin works. I'm trying to make a shape look like gold, eventually. Some clarification would be appreciated. Thanks! Bruce
  2. Greetings, I'm interested in drawing a 3D cone, but can't find the right plugin for this. Is there one? Also, if I drew a cone seen directly from above, such as a tower's roof (basically a circle with a central point) how would I get the sort of shading that would convey the idea this is a conical shape? The conical gradient built into the basic Paint Net version doesn't quite work in this respect. I tried bevelling, but this produces more of a spherical cupola effect. Thanks! Bruce
  3. Re the deletion of plugins showing errors -- I found a dozen related files for that first one (CurtissBlack.Common.dll) which aren't dlls. Should they all be deleted?
  4. What are the most common plugin packs? These were pretty handy IIRC. I'd hate to accidentally delete a plugin I need and not be able to find it again. I use a good number of those, and I'm still working on understanding what others actually do. At least I can clean out the ones that show errors. If anything, it'll speed up PaintNet when I load it. <<search your system for PhotoShop.dll >> Excellent idea! I'd checked PaintNet's root directory, but omitted to look under Effects. Sure enough, there was that old one from last year. Deleted, and problem solved. Phew! Finally... Thanks!
  5. I posted the contents of my FileTypes folder in an earlier post (several minutes ago). If you see an old plugin there, please let me know. As far as can tell, it's the latest one. Thanks! As regards Megalo -- I honestly don't remember. I downloaded a whole bunch of these plugins years ago. I haven't had any problems since then, up until I discovered the issue with psd files yesterday. I've created hundreds of psd files up until last August without any problems otherwise. The only thing I can think of that changed since August was going from Win 8 to Win 10, and updating Paint.Net to the latest version -- I think. Can you name one plugin file from Megalo? I'll see if I have it under "Effects."
  6. Oh yeah! I also rebooted the PC multiple times (after shutting down Paint.Net, after removing the old plugin, after installing the new one, etc.)
  7. Here are the contents of my File Type folder and the screenshot of the error message I get when I try to save as photoshop.
  8. Well, the installed dll file is clearly marked as the one dated Sept 11 2016 (see my earlier screenshot). I got it from the zip folder labeled Version 2.5.0, which I downloaded this morning (I attached that folder to my original post) -- as far as I can tell, that's the correct plugin. I deleted the older plugin before installing the new one. I don't know what else to tell you. << No, it did not. >> I didn't invent it, if that's what you're thinking. If the error comes up when I attempt to save as psd, and that's what shows in the log, the logical assumption is that something's wrong with the plugin. At least this was my assumption when I came here looking for a fix.
  9. Well, I use Windows 10. Nothing else. I've no plan for replacing Windows 10. In any case I was showing the correct version of the plugin. So this doesn't seem to be an issue. The crash log came up as the result of my attempt to save a file as photoshop, using the newer plugin.
  10. Hope so. I looked up the plugin errors, under Settings. The PSD plugin isn't listed there, so it should be functioning correctly. Still no luck.
