  1. You mean the Effects menu? Please post a screenshot.
  2. I've added the new "bundled" status as Active (Bundled) because the two plugins with this status are both active and bundled. This is the same pattern we've been using for Active (New) and it works in the same way.
  3. We were all off wearing tinfoil hats in honor of @pyrochild's birthday!
  4. Your problem is that the left hand edge of the image does not match the right hand side. This reveals itself as a noticeable edge as you have found. You have a couple of options: recreate the texture so it tiles seamlessly. Use CSS to make a single instance of the image stretch across the entire screen. How to - First option First have a read of this post: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/2244-seamless-texture-helper-plugin/ BoltBait does a really nice job of explaining what you're trying to achieve. Download and install this plugin: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/4591-seamless-texture-maker-ymd100718/ Apply it to your texture to make it tile seamlessly. How to - Second option Go here & read the section on making a "Hero image" (its the last example on the page): https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css3_pr_background-size.asp
  5. No plugins are required - everything you need is available in paint.net itself, as HyRez said. Open the image you want to enhance. Add a new layer above the original image. Activate the Ellipse select tool (other shapes will also work - e.g. use a vertical rectangle for the side highlights) Drag out a flattened ellipse where you want the highlight. It needs to be quite thin (reference the top highlight in you example image) Press Shift + Backspace to fill the ellipse with white. Apply Blurs > Gaussian Blur. Use the Radius value to soften the edges of the highlight. Press F4 to open the layer properties dialog and fine tune the effect by lowering the Opacity value.
  6. That's where certain plugins are placed when paint.net is installed. These plugins are supplied with the installation package, so you don't have to download them separately. You can still download & install the latest release of the plugin. It will be used if it is newer than the bundled version. This allows you to use any recent updates to the plugin without waiting for a new release of PDN.
  7. I have no problem adding Bundled as a new status. It will only require a few minor tweaks to the code behind the Index.
  8. Quite correct. I'll flag it the entry for some attention. DDSFileTypePlus is also bundled (since 4.2.2) so I might as well add that to the update list.
  9. I'd be happy with an options to align effect dialogs. Left, middle, right and top, middle, bottom with respect to the main window.
  10. Hi @Xhin, Thank you for another delightful plugin. I think users would have a better appreciation of this effect if you used a non-abstract image as the base. While colorful and beautiful, the initial images shapes are mirrored horizontally and vertically - so it's hard to see exactly where the deformations are occurring. If you used a picture of a banana (for example ) I'm sure we would understand the changes much more easily. Just a thought....
  11. Nice. Would it make more sense to have a drop down list? It would shorten the UI quite a bit and also allow you to add more options if they come along.
  12. October Update Eight new plugins this month - all of them from Xhin. toe_head2001 has also released a bug-fix and improved performance version of TR's Displacement Map (v2.1) Enjoy Advanced Kaleidoscope Xhin Turn an image into a kaleidoscope with many options & features including reflections in a number of different axises. Color Magic Xhin Recolor an image in a variety of ways with many fine-tuning options. The plugin is designed to keep colors in reasonable proportion to one another, Cubic Transformation Xhin Distorts an image using Pyramid, Tube, Convex & Concave settings amongst many other options. Glass Blur Xhin blurs an image in a proportional way to its lightness while keeping some darker outlines intact. It ends up either looking like you're looking at the image through thick glass, or the image itself is made out of glass. Polar Kaleidoscope Xhin Performs a polar transformation on the source image then applies a kaleidoscope effect. Polar Reflection Xhin Reflect part of an image outwards in a polar-like way. Alternatively 'clamp' part of an image. Many options & features. Rectangular Inversion Xhin Turns an image inside-out via polar coordinates Trace Xhin Trace works like Ink Sketch (and similar plugins) with reduced number of artifacts and fine-tuning options.
  13. @Xhin Please make it plain where users should look for your plugins. I have hundreds installed. Knowing which menu to look in would be a big help.
  14. If you install all the plugins expect PDN to be slower to start. Rick has made many optimizations to improve startup performance, but a load of plugins will still slow it down somewhat.
  15. You can hover over the plugin in the menu and it will show you the name of the DLL. This make it a little easier to track down the source of the double entry.
  16. I'd have recommended this plugin as it used to work, but it seems to be on the blink in 4.2+ https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/14969-introducing-mosaic-maniac-collage-paint-plugin/
  17. Here is something to play with... it is in the Adjustments menu. Note: your 'white' background is not uniform The red color doesn't return a full range of intensities. I out of time today to play with it any more. Sorry. Let me know if you want me to work on it further. RecolorFromTable.zip
  18. The solution is given in the second (and third) posts in this thread.
  19. Hello @Mywork - welcome to the forum Don't import the second layer. That will resize your canvas if the second image is larger REF: https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/LayersMenu.html#6 Open the second image, copy it (Ctrl+C) and paste into a new layer over the first image (Ctrl + Shift + V)
