  1. Source code is available as of October 16, 2012. http://www.evanolds....dn_effects.html
  2. Posted version 3.7 which saves all images that have dimensions greater than or equal to 256 as PNGs. Please let me know if you find any problems.
  3. I think this guy gave me a donation (or someone did), so I'll look into this.
  4. http://www.evanolds.com/dl/IcoCur.dll I've re-added the option to save layers separately as individual images within one icon file. To do this, you will have to name the layers in the form #x# for example: 32x32 There are also some other improvements, most of which are just small efficiency improvements and may not be noticeable.
  5. Ok, thanks for the feedback. So my first comment I will steal from Rick: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=32826 As he says, Paint.NET really just isn't made for this. I would love it if I had access to each separate document that the user was working on and then I could save one icon-image per document, allowing the user to create exact-sized, layer-based, high quality icon images. But I don't have that ability. If I'm understanding correctly, it's the fact that there's no way to currently save different images in the same icon file that's really lacking? I think no matter what changes I made the u
  6. Ok, version 1.7 with a fix for this has been posted. Good find, thanks.
  7. Thanks for posting this. I've found the source of the problem in a call to a PDN function. I'll ask Rick about it in the developer's forum.
  8. Posted version 1.6 What was the Octagonal/Quadrilateral reshape/matte is now broken up into two effects: ("Distort" submenu) Quadrilateral Reshape and ("Transparency" submenu) Polygonal Transparency The Polygonal Transparency effect has a configurable number of control points in the range [3, 20]. The Conditional Hue/Saturation adjustment, 3D Object, and mirror effects are still present as well. In addition to these alterations, a small bug was found and fixed that may or may not have been the cause of the plugin being blocked in the first place.
  9. I have uploaded a version with the changes I've made thus far. I've replaced the old file with the new version so everyone that downloads will be BETA testing whether they like it or not : http://www.evanolds.com/dl/EOEffects.dll I took the quadrilateral reshape/matte out of the of the oct/quad one and it's now a separate effect, but the old oct/quad one is there also. I'm curious to see if people see a crash in one of these if they also see it in the other. The 3D object effect no longer uses the ray-tracer but a software renderer that has known clipping issues, but these will only be no
  10. I'm not sure what caused the problem since I've never been able to reproduce the problem. There was something like a DivideByZeroException in the logs Rick sent me. I have some changes that I've made and everything works fine on my machine, but then again, it was always working fine on my machine. Maybe I'll post an update later, but the same problem could just come up again for all I know.
  11. If you are considering donating (which is always appreciated ), I have a donation page that I put up today at www.evanolds.com/donate.html. This is a possibility, however this and pretty much all other options are kind of "hacks" in the sense that they're getting around the fact that Paint.NET isn't really suited for editing multiple images of different resolutions in a single document. I and several others have authored separate applications for icon editing that better serve this purpose. Now I realize that a lot of people don't want to have to download a separate utility application an
  12. The following effect DLLs are replaced by this plug-in and can be removed if they are still in your PDN effects directory: HueSatFilter.dll Octagonal.dll
  13. This is my collection of Paint.NET effects thus far. A quick rundown of the effects in the DLL: Mirror over line This lets you draw a line on a thumbnail of the image in a dialog and reflect what's on one side of the line over the other. Conditional Hue/Saturation Adjustment The conditional hue/saturation can adjust the hue or saturation of a portion of the image based on the existing hue values of pixels. Below are some before and after shots. Quadrilateral Reshape ("Distort" submenu) Lets you resha
  14. There is a bug on saving 8-bit images. Working on a fix.
  15. How are you adding the icon/cursor resource to your VS2005 project? For a C# app I don't think it will even let you add cursors and I had no trouble adding an icon. However, I did find an issue which I'll work on fixing, but you should be able to save an icon with the default options and have VS load it. You don't need the .NET 3.0 framework. Can you please send more details about the error and exactly what steps you take that cause it? Thanks
  16. Yes, I understand that without that option, icon authoring power is extremely limited. However, just due to the nature of Paint.NET, such an option is just not something I'm willing to maintain. I did some refactoring for the latest release and removed that feature. There will be probably one or two more clean-up/bug fix updates for this plug-in and then I'm not going to maintain it anymore. In Rick's own words, Paint.NET is just not an icon creation tool. It's highly likely that I will write a standalone application that allows for more complex icon creation. But trying to write a plug-in th
  17. The download link has been fixed: http://www.evanolds.com/IcoCur.zip
  18. Would anyone object if I took out the "Save each layer seperately" mode? It's really kind of a dirty hack how it trys to analyze the transparent regions and save images of different dimensions. Paint.Net isn't really well suited for it. I'd have more time to work on other features if I just scraped this portion. Please let me know by voting in the poll at the top of the page.
  19. Oops. Yeah, thanks for pointing this out, I accidently released the debug version. I'll see if I can get a fixed version up later today.
  20. I posted a new version at the same download link as before: http://www.evanolds.com/IcoCur.zip I made a small change; the 512x512 sample icon that was posted now loads correctly. Let me know if it works for all your other icons.
  21. Thanks for posting. I see what the problem is and I'll get around to fixing it eventually.
  22. I don't have WinRar nor do I wish to download it (I use 7-zip). If you a going to post a file for me to test, please make it a standard .zip file or a .7z file. It sounds like a previous post by J6628426 was saying that there was a problem loading icons which had dimensions exceeding 256 pixels. However, I cannot understand if you are having the same problem because you say (and I quote): Are you: 1) Having trouble saving a large icon in Paint.NET? 2) Succeeding in saving a large icon, but then can't re-open it in Paint.NET? or 3) Getting the .ico file from another source and having trou
  23. Can you post the .ico file that your are trying to open on the web somewhere and send me the link? Then I will take a look at it.
  24. Small update: I have added 24x24 resolution. Also when you check a check box in the save options it becomes checked, instead of having to click it twice like before. Just a small update with these two things, I'll look into the other requests later.
  25. I guessing it's exactly what Rick said. I had to revise the plugin earlier because Vista introduced a new aspect of the file format that allows embedded PNGs. While I implemented the loading code to handle this, I did not add it into the saving code because it would produce icons that many other icon supporting programs wouldn't read. It's Vista here that is causing the perversion of the icon format, but I guess that doesn't really change the fact that it's now the new way that icon files are expected to be. So, I might try to look into adding 256x256 PNG embeddeding into the save options nex
