  1. HELLO Again Everybody ! - Is there a PLUG-IN (or downloadable app) to instantly TRANSLATE text in PDN images ?....it would be very useful and time-saving to INSTANTLY translate foreign-language text in PDN images into PDN, JPG, BMP, and other image formats. For example : with one click a JPG image of a page of french text opened in PDN is INSTANTLY translated. Thx !
  2. Bolt- i did NOT intend, authorize or initiate those few multiple-replicated (incomplete) posts that just happened today. The system wrongly automatically posted those, so could you please allow deletion of those now ? - hypercat
  3. Bolt- thx for the reply. Its just a little confusing to me. Also, my incomplete reply to Rick was suddenly replicated automatically a few times but i didnt mean to do that or authorize that (and tried to fix those, because i dont see a DELETE option anywhere). i will try Rick's solution again, but as he related, its not a simple procedure.
  4. Im trying to DELETE my incomplete reply here, but theres no DELETE option, and these incompleted replies keep replicating automatically themselves on the topic page!!! (not my intention)
  5. Hi Rick - Thx very much for that latest solution ! I will try it ASAP and report to you the result (....gotta get some sleep now). BTW - Why PNG over BMP ? - hypercat ?
  6. toe - thx for the reply ! Below is the DETAILS info you requested (which i just now added to my post). ALL my PICTURE files are saved in BMP, and set to open with PAINT.NET as the DEFAULT, unless i specifically choose another app. Heres an example : 1. to get to one of my vintage MAGAZINE cover images, starting from my PICTURES folder, there are EIGHT categorized sub-folders. 2. There, i choose a file (a cover-image). 3. When i L-click on it, this msg appears in a small window : "The directory could not be found". 4. When i L-click on DETAILS in that window, this file-path info appears : System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Users\Paul M\Pictures\DIGITAL Photography & Video\Special Photo Collections\PMA Collection\1. Architectural\1. Publication Covers & Pics - 1920-2000\01. Publication Covers - 1920-2000\01 - Mags - 1920-Present\2.

  7. Hello Everyone- My BMP image files CAN be opened in other apps (MS Paint, SketchBook, etc)....but now they are NOT opening in my ONLY reliable (MAIN) photo-editing app, Paint.net !!! This started several moths ago after i updated to WINDOWS 10. ALL my PICTURE files are saved in BMP (a lossless format), and are set to open with PAINT.NET as the DEFAULT (unless i specifically choose another app). Heres an example : 1. to get to one of my vintage MAGAZINE cover images, starting from my PICTURES folder, there are EIGHT categorized sub-folders. 2. There, i choose a file (a cover-image). 3. When i L-click on it, this msg appears in a small window : "The directory could not be found". 4. When i L-click on DETAILS in that window, this file-path info appears : System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Users\Paul M\Pictures\DIGITAL Photography & Video\Special Photo Collections\PMA Collection\1. Architectural\1. Publication Covers & Pics - 1920-2000\01. Publication Covers - 1920-2000\01 - Mags - 1920-Present\2.

Anyone know WHY?....or of any FIX ? - hypercat ?
  8. "I regularly load over 700 plugins - should paint.net remember every one of them?" Ego- Mine arent plug-ins, as i said theyre tool windows, and even if i had a million of em (or 700) i still wouldnt want ANY of em in the MIDDLE-of -screen. Thats my workspace that i dont want repeatedly obstructed every time i return to my work (a reasonable concern, i think). but thx 4 the humor. - Hypercat ?
  9. I tried to DELETE my older unnecessary POSTS on PDN, but i cant find ANY way to do that, including NO trash-can symbol anywhere, not even in EDITING mode. Anyone know a way to do that ? Another classic PDN mystery. - hypercat ?
  10. Hey Everyone!....PDN is really GREAT !!!....but....can ANYONE please explain to me WHY the DEFAULT Position of the multiple PDN Effects Dialogue Windows are all PERMANENTLY set to appear in MIDDLE-of-screen (obstructing a user's work each time he/she returns to it), instead of to Last Position Used ?.... Can someone PLEASE explain this to me ?!!! Thanks ! - hypercat ?
  11. Heyall !....Is there a photo-editing app with a Drag-n-Click type tool for PaintDotNet that (either automatically or manually) corrects skew distortion (slanted or bulged buildings, etc) ??? Some years ago online i saw a photo-edit app use of such a tool.... The example shown : Step 1. User activates the tool. Step 2. User clicks on 4 corners of a skewed and bulged building in a digital image. A grid automatically appears over those chosen points in the same distorted shape. Step 3. User L-Clicks once on image and the grid then corrects the skewed and bulged building to its correct shape.... Anyone know where to get something like this ???
  12. What is the simplest way, in PDN, to un-distort a photographic image that has distorted perspective (such as with "crooked buildings", etc) ? Is there a photo app that includes such a "Perspective Correction" tool ? Many years ago i had a (now defunct) Corel app that had it (one simply clicked on corner points of a distorted object in the image, then the next click would instantly bring those points (and the rest of the image) to proper perspective.
  13. First, i want to say that Paint.net is an amazingly versatile app, but still there are some simple yet valuable tools and setting options that should be included. For example : When im returning to unfinished work, the Tool Windows always appear, VERY annoyingly, in the center of the screen (obscuring an image being worked on, which just makes no sense). Is there a way the Window Position Default can be RESET so windows automatically remember "last position used" ? Surprisingly, any such options are NOT yet provided in Settings.
  14. Hi Evan - I have latest Firefox browser on Windows XP/SP 3. After i assigned paint.net to open your FX plugin pack, i downloaded your FX pack (mainly for the Quadrilateral Reshape tool), but when the Paint.net workspace opens, this message appears- "The image type is not recognized, and cannot be opened" !!! How do i open this download ? Heres the download info in your post : Download: http://www.evanolds....l/EOEffects.dll (download link is case sensitive)
  15. Hi Tanel ! - Im a beginner with all this, so please help if you can.... PAINT.net only has that rediculous "TINT" slide-rule bar for color correction (if one slides it for less green, it then makes too much magenta, etc).... Do you (or someone else) have a COLOR PLUG-IN for PAINT.net to INDEPENDENTLY decrease / increase any of at least these FIVE colors (using slide-bars) ? : YELLOW BLUE GREEN RED MAGENTA ....Or at least any of these THREE colors ? : YELLOW RED BLUE (or GREEN) Also, do you (or someone) have a PLUG-IN for PAINT.net that provides for correcting perspective (slanted buildings, etc) using INDEPENDENT pull-points ? Thx ! Also, if downloading / using any of these is tricky or complicated, pls warn me ! Thx ! - Paul M.
