    Tone Gradient Magnitude (new July '17)

    Nitenurse - A very moody scene, could be drawn in charcoal. Excellent work! Sasha - That it is beautiful. I love walking on the beach at low tide and watching the ripples. Clever original photo taken from a low vantage point to emphasise the perspective and the clipwarp frame looks like a mirror. D.S. - Your dog looks happy there, out walking his master. The background foliage has come out well. LionsDragon - That's really brought out the texture of the mane. Glad you've been experimenting with both effects. Many thanks to all that have posted images, comments or awarded reps (or whatever they're called now ). I seem to have spent all mine again, I will catch up eventually.

    If you give a rep/like but you have used your daily allowance the rep doesn't register (as expected) but there is no notification that it hasn't registered?

    I just noticed that the upvote/like thingies have stopped working for me . Presumably I've spent my daily allowance but I only noticed the rep hadn't registered after I had logged out? So apologies if I missed anyone - will try to catch up.

    D.S. Thanks for the compliment and images - That's a great looking bike!... and the young lady is very attractive too. Seerose - Very effective use of the effect, thanks for posting the images. Lynxster - Great results on your Dad's tree and the flower arrangement. Many thanks. Pixey - Your flower image has 'watercolour' feel to it, that I like...and the leopard has new spots. LionsDragon - Thanks for saying thanks - just dive in and experiment. I'm sorry I don't know the difference between a 'like' and an 'upvote'?

    The typo in the U.I. has been corrected (outlines not oulines) - thanks Remake.

  8. Tone Gradient Magnitude (new July '17) Name: TGMagnitude (Tone Gradient Magnitude) Description: Shows the magnitude of the tone gradient giving various outline effects. Menu: Stylize Original release date: 22nd July 2017 Author: Red ochre (John Robbins) .dll name: TGMagnitude Compatibility: Tested on Pdn3.5.11 and latest paint.net4 version (4.0.17). The code for this is closely related to TGAngle and also makes use of MJW's ideas (Thanks again!). It creates outlines in proportion to the change in tone, giving results superficially similar to the Artistic effects 'Ink sketch' and 'Pencil sketch'. I have added the ability to lower the background opacity, hopefully making it useful as a mask to isolate objects. This also means you can place any background you wish on a layer below. I've had good results using it on photos but if you find other uses please do post. My example images should be below and I'd love to see what you can make using it.
  9. Using Firefox 54.0.1(32 bit) & 4.0.17 I've tested the previous problem image (link page 1) and a few other web images. Glad to report no problems for me now. Perhaps Firefox have fixed their bug - either way I'm happy!

    Seerose - Very 'craggy' rock textures. Thanks for posting. (I must hunt out my old Deep Purple albums) Oceana - I'm glad you're enjoying this one. Thanks for the compliment and for the picture. I like the textures created in the sky.

    Seerose - Beautiful 'metallic' flowers, many thanks for posting the examples. Lynxster - Thanks for posting the text image. I've got PS elements on my Vista machine but haven't used it for many years, I find Pdn more flexible! I'm glad you have found a technique to get the text effect you after. If there are other text styles you can't emulate, do post an example in 'discussions'. Between us all we should be able to get close. Nitenurse - cool! Reminds me of the Janis Joplin song. Thanks for posting.

    Cluster Clear Plugin

    Welcome to the forum, 2.7182818 etc. Good idea for a plugin, thanks for sharing. Suggestions: State that it is found under Effects/Object (though it works on opaque Secondary color backgrounds). You could link the max and min sliders tooexample code

    Andrew David - cool Eiffel tower image for Bastille day yesterday. Good work, thanks for posting. Eli - 'Oscar' Macron? - clever use of the effect, thanks for posting. D.S. - Object edge is one way to get a gradient over an object. I tend to use it twice, first with a large radius then with a smaller one to darken the sharp corners. The techniques I described here should work.Clipwarped text tutorial The unpublished 'EdgeShaderMJW' effect (on this thread edge shader) is also very useful. Direct download below. EdgeShaderMJW (MJW's version is at least 10 times faster than mine!)
