  1. The dpi shouldn't matter to a computer (it is only relevant for printing purpose), only the actual pixel resolution does. What are your image pixel resolutions? PDN can get very slow with large image resolutions such as 8k and above.
  2. I know it's probably asking too much to ask, but a preview while warping would be very nice to have. Thank's again for your hard work on this excellent plugin.
  3. I am just inches away from eradicating all Windows partitions from all computers in my household. I'm spending 99% of my time in Linux and have practically no need for Windows anymore. It feels good just saying that. Even my computer illiterate wife is using Linux on her computer.
  4. TR, this is an outstanding plugin and it may replace my old morphing method. I really like how you integrated GridWarp and the output of PNG image sequence. Very well done indeed! It works perfectly in PDN v4.0.9, however not in v3.5.11. The warp function works perfectly, but not the Morph function. When I right-click on a grid nub, it doesn't display the clipboard image. I'm not sure if this is a compatibility problem with PDN v3.5.11, or because I'm running it in Linux. Maybe a Windows user can shed some light here, since I don't have PDN v3.5.11 installed in Windows, only PDN v4.0.9.
  5. Eli, if you click Grid > "Lock Borders", you'll keep the edges intact during the morphing. Yes combining Warp with Morph makes my butterfly look better. I actually did this before I read your post....
  6. Great job Pixey... I like how the Warp feature works also.
  7. I really like the water flow effect TR! Here's a butterfly effect.
  8. Another quick one. I'll be sure to post a good one when I have some time to play with this.....
  9. Just a quick test. This is going to be a great plugin I think.
  10. While not a true optical illusion, it will make you dizzy if you stare at it long enough after a few drinks. I had fun making it anyway.
  11. Just put a PDN shortcut in the Right-Click "SendTo" shell command.
  12. Looks to me like the problem is in the ability for PDN to open a CMYK Color tiff file. I imported the OP's tiff file in PhotoShop, changed color mode from CMYK to RGB and exported to tiff. It opened fine in PDN v4.0.9 in Win10 and the Alpha Channel was displayed correctly. That's my unscientific analyst anyway..........
  13. OK, I reduced the opacity and added a glow. I think the star wars hologram had a glow to it, if I remember correctly. This is the end of my input here, if anyone has a better idea go for it.
  14. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms533798(v=vs.85).aspx What's interesting here, is that I can't open that .tiff file on PDN v4.0.9 in Win10. I can however open it fine in PhotoShop v7 (14 year old program) along with Irfanview on the same system. I find that fascinating, even though I have no idea why that is. I wonder if it has to due with the Alpha Channel in the tiff image? The Alpha Channel is correctly displayed in PhotoShop, but everything else I've tried, just flattens it. It's also encoded with CMYK colorspace. If anyone is interested, here is the metadata on the tiff file as reported by Gimp: Hidden Content: metadata 2015-06-09T16:45:53+02:00 2011-10-06T09:13:29 0 2015-06-09T16:45:53+02:00 Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 (Macintosh) image/tiff unknown 1480813790 18/1 55/1 0/0 0/0 EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 45 16 0/1 unknown 1.1.0 _MG_5809.CR2 5.7 5.0 As Shot 3250 +6 0.00 5 +50 +25 0 25 0 25 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 25 50 75 +1.0 25 0 0 0 False Medium Contrast Adobe Standard 3E87BAD76D425A28CE9A20DF0E1EDB86 True 0.336028 0.036952 0.681293 0.796767 0 True True 0, 0 32, 22 64, 56 128, 128 192, 196 255, 255 4 Coated FOGRA39 (ISO 12647-2:2004) 2011-10-06T09:13:29 xmp.iid:2d98d6fe-c829-4a6c-a211-e03379b1ba89 xmp.did:05F9F0390D20681192B0DFE1678EEE74 100 unknown 1480813790 EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 18/1 55/1 0/0 0/0
  15. Try installing gdi+ and see if that helps. Interestingly enough, I can open your image in my PDN installed in Linux under Wine. I did install gdi+ on that virtual drive.
  16. That was just a proof of concept that I made in 30 seconds, it's not meant as a final product. Obviously one would tweak it to their needs. Something like this one I made in 3 minutes, maybe?
  17. Excellent job on this sketch plugin, ReMake. I like how it looks.
  18. I occasionally dabble with morphing too. Looking forward to trying out your new plugin. * Edit* Animation deleted on request.
  19. Great job on instructions Pixey! I'm not into theses types of things, so won't add to this. Don't really need to anyway it seems.
  20. Shot this on my front porch today. Created in PDN v3.5.11 (running in Linux) from decimated frames.
  21. Never used Picasa. I don't use any version of online storage for anything important like photos for obvious reasons like this one. If I want to share a photo, I'll just email,text or upload to wherever.
  22. Yes and Oracle's Virtual Box works equally well in Linux. However, you still have to install Windows on the Virtual Machine and before you can launch a windows program, you have to boot up the Windows OS. The advantage to using Wine, is the launch time for the windows program is very short and only requires clicking on the shortcut. PDN version 3.5.11 runs very well with all the compatible plugins and only takes about 5 seconds to load in Linux under Wine. Here is an example done all in PDN in Linux under Wine using midora's Animate Images plugin.
  23. I just made this quick example. I assume it's the way ASH did it. I set primary color to blue and set secondary color alpha to 0. Then on an empty layer I drew lines with a line plugin (Parallel lines and paterns), then used Shape3D to render the 3D image.
