  1. I have posted a bug-fix release (v2.1) in the first post.

     

    It solves two performance issues:

    - If there was not an image on the clipboard, the plugin re-attempted to retrieve an image from the clipboard on every single pixel.  This is why the plugin would hang sometimes.

    - The plugin computed shading data on every single pixel, even when a pixel didn't need or use shading data.

     

    It should be much faster now.

     

    Also, the plugin now uses a built-in method from Paint.NET to retrieve images from the clipboard; simplify the plugin source code.

    With https://dotnet.microsoft.com/apps/xamarin it would not be possible to build without too much modifications?

     

    Correct, it would not.

    Paint.NET still has many Windows dependencies that aren't even part of .NET.  For example: WIC, Direct2D, and DXGI.

    NOT as a mobile app. But as a desktop app with mouse cursor/window mode. As you can do with .... the newer Android 10.

     

    I'm not sure what Android 10 has to do with anything here. Mouse and keyboard support was added in Android 3.1, and multi-window support was added in Android 6.


  3. On September 16, 2019, TinyPic.com will go offline.  If you have an account with them, go login and download your images before the 16th.

     

    TinyPic has already stopped serving images to other websites, so you may see this sad-face image here on the forum:

    goodbye

     

     

    Popular alternatives include: Postimage.org and Imgur.

    Or better yet, host the images on a domain you yourself control. It's just a matter of time before your chosen service goes offline too (or goes pay only... ImageShack ... Photobucket).

     

    Oh, and bye the way, TinyPic is owned by Photobucket.

  4. Howdy, @carpless,

    Which image format are you saving in? Or do you have this issue with every format? Are you saving images large dimensions and/or many layers?

     

     

    No one is forcing you to update paint.net. You can decline the updates when prompted. You can also disable update checking in paint.net's Settings.


  5. This looks like an issue with the .NET Framework itself.  It is having trouble understanding the App.config file.

    My system: W10 x64, paint.net 4.2.1. I've already deinstalled & installed .net framework...

     

    Which version of Windows 10? Which version of .NET Framework?

     

    If you're running Windows 10 1903, then run the sfc command.

    If you're running an older version of Windows 10, then install .Net Framework v4.8, or update to Windows 10 1903.


  6. I've been using Snippets more and more in Visual Studio.

    I wanted to add a bunch of them to CodeLab, but I don't think people want the same snippets that I do.

    So... I'm thinking CodeLab could benefit from a Snippet Manager where you can add your own custom snippets.

     

    For example, say you're working on your script, and you realize you need to retrieve the current palette.

    You can have a snippet called curPal (or whatever), and it would expand into:

    IReadOnlyList<ColorBgra> CurrentColors = Services.GetService<IPalettesService>().CurrentPalette; 

     

    SnippetManager.png

     

     

    As it stands, you have to open the Templates (File -> New), and generate a whole new file. Then you have to copy and paste the relevant line of code from one tab to another.  Unless of course you have that palette code memorized, and are willing to type it out.

     

    Who wants this? Or is it just me?

    It's a png 3800 x 3200 with transparency (i use optipng for shrinking some kb).

    just to save some time, i hoped to bypass the preview computation! ;)

    by the way, it seems that the issue is on optipng end... normal png saves, as provided by paint.net, work pretty fast instead.

     

    OptiPNG is a lossless compressor. It's going to take a long time regardless of the preview. In fact, the preview has nothing to do with the wait.


  8. Two weeks ago I upgraded my graphics card. :D  It had been 6 years since my last upgrade. Now that I can play contemporary titles again, I've started playing Destiny 2. Everyone tells me it's a great game, but there are way too many cutscenes; it's quite obnoxious.

     

    I'm also looking forward to playing Borderlands 3, Halo Reach (on PC), and the System Shock reboot.  I still need to play the newer Battlefront 2 as well.
