  1. Impressive MadJik, but way too complicated. I remember how I tested years ago, something like: - Draw an object on a transparent layer, duplicate the layer. - Rotate the duplicated layer 3 or 4 times, anticlockwise. Make sure the sum of the rotations is larger than 360 Degrees. - Rotate the same layer clockwise (negative degrees) as much as the sum of the anticlockwise rotation was over 360. - The object on the duplicated layer exactly overlaps the object on the original layer. QED.
  2. I have found Layers > Rotate / Zoom to be accurate. However, I prefer to use this
  3. Ctrl+Shift+C will copy all the visible layers, merged. It's not the same as saving the layered image but it's much better than saving just one layer.
  4. This was on the telly the other day and it's been playing in my head since ..
  5. A workaround for plugin installers that do not work with the Windows Store version is: 1. (If they do not already exist) Create two folders, one named "Effects" and one named "FileTypes", in the main "paint.net" folder, usually like "C:\Program Files\paint.net\Effects" and "C:\Program Files\paint.net\FileTypes". 2. Download and run the plugin installer. 3. Follow the instructions in the second yellow "Note" at https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/InstallPlugins.html 4. Cut and paste the files installed in the folders in step 1 into the folders created in step 3.
  6. @Eagle1, it seems to be a common problem for files uploaded through the forum. Just download the file on the first post and save it on your desktop. Then re-name it to anything you like and add the ".zip" extention. You should then be able to extract the dll.
  7. Merry Christmas to all PaintDotNet-ers
  8. (I checked here and kind of expected MadJik to have posted already something on this. Maybe I should have waited a bit). The great French performer, Édith Piaf, would have been 102 today. I listened to one tribute to her on a Cyprus radio station this morning and a second one this afternoon, on another station. And that's just me zapping on the car radio, stuck in traffic. I cannot even imagine how it is in France today.
  9. The emoticon gave it away. I thought of deleting the emoticon but then I wasn't sure how anyone would take it.
  10. Thank you xod for an excellent plugin. I agree with EER and MJW that you should release it in the plugin forum with it's own topic. I also agree with MJW regarding placing the plugin in a submenu. It is not "absolutely necessary" like you say, it's just better housekeeping IMO. I'll let you keep your own copy in the parent Effect menu because I like you

    Thank you, this brings back a lot of childhood memories for me. Our family car when I was a young child was a DKW. Basically the same car, only renamed for selling in the west.
  12. Definitely a dodgy mouse WB. It has happened to me a few times. Although in my case I can't complain because I always buy cheap and generic.
  13. Thank you for the housekeeping EER. These are two DLLs for two effects in one zip file. Still, I think this topic belongs in the general Plugins forum rather than in the Plugin Packs sub-forum.
  14. Rather: "Allows paint.net to open or and save images as PDF documents"
  15. I tried to attach it to a PM but I could not figure out how to. So, here it is. MeasureSelection.Effect v1.5.zip
  16. I suggested this a few years ago. Some forum members agreed it would be a good idea. I still hope
  17. Here's an easy way around until something can be done to fix the plugin. It actually works quite with images I tested up to the size of an A4 page. Pictures can then be easily copied from Word into PDN for editing if necessary.
  18. Congratulations to the winners and well done everyone who entered
  19. When Ali met Chrissie ... ... or, the definiiion of how to cover (only Ali's hair isn't "too long").
  20. For the silhouette in my "night-time" entry I used this photo: http://www.wallpapermade.com/wallpaper/1391/white-wolf-face/ I also used a texture I made years ago following yellowman's Stone Texture tutorial.
