  1. Thanks. I'd forgotten that I deleted "cutouteffect.dll when I installed Illnab's plugin pack. That explains the drop-down-menu-cutout-icon-without-corresponding-cutouteffect dll-mystery. FYI: The cutout effect just produces an error message regardless of which dll is installed separately. Oh well—so sad.
  2. Several times I tried to use the cutout effect and each time got only a Plugin Error message telling me to restart Paint.Net. I went to the effects folder in PDN to remove the cutouteffect dll, before installing a newly downloaded version of the dll, but there was no cutouteffect dll to remove (or anything similar); and yet '"cutout" still appears in the effects drop-down menu. So, I put the newly downloaded dll in the effects folder and restarted PDN. "Cutout" then appeared twice in the drop-down menu, but clicking on either one just returned the original plugin error message. I re
  3. I love it ! This is great for jewels and chrome and shiny sparkly icons. In only a month it's already become one of my favs.
  4. This plugin usually works fine, but if I try to open an ico file which is defective (unknowingly), I get the message "Icon/Cursor Data is invalid and can not be loaded." When I click OK to clear the message, PdN crashes ('unhandled error'), leaving a crashlog on the desktop. I don't expect PdN to open invalid files. I'm only posting this because because of the crashlog. I tried to attach the crashlog but got got an error message saying I'm not permitted to upload this kind of file.
  5. SkullSplitter Thanx for the tut, but your links here in post #15 and also in #1 lead to 404 Error. Cry.
  6. I am having the same problem as described by APShredder in his post in 2009. The first time I used it, I didn't change the default location, 'My Documents', and it worked fine; but I had to move it to the palettes folder in Paint.Net Users file. When I tried to use it again for another image it just wouldn't work at all. The UI would flash for a fraction of a second, then nothing -no save- no chance to save. So, I re-downloaded it. This time the UI came up just like the first time, but I wanted to save in palettes folder within Paint.Net User's File. So I changed the path just as descr
  7. Will someone - Mike Ryan or Admin or whoever is responsible for these things - please make the necessary spelling correction to the Effects > Color submenu. It's Color Trimming not Color Timming. Thank you.
  8. Thank you. Is the post for a particular plugin in this forum the right place to ask questions about that particular plugin ?
  9. I looked and looked for a place to ask this question but didn't find a similar question, so I'll ask it here. Does anyone know where I can get copies of the plugin icons used for the individual Adjustments/Effects in the Adjustments and Effects menus ? I would like to use the icons on my own collected plugin help files as a mnemonic device to keep my help files organized. (e.g. Is this Outline Selection or Object ? BoltBait, pyrochild, or Aziz ?) I tried using IcoFX to extract the icons from the .dll and .exe files in Paint.Net installed on my computer, but I only found 3 icons: the main P
  10. I downloaded this plugin today and there is a problem with the UI. In the Basic Mode, the upper half of the slider knob for the Highlights adjustment is missing and there is no "Highlights" label to indicate that's what the middle slider is for. In the Adavanced Mode, the upper half of the slider knob for the Tonal Range adjustment is missing and there is no "Tonal Range" label to indicate that's what that slider is for. (I am including a screen capture file showing this) It's not clear whether the plugin is malfunctioning as well. It doesn't seem to remove shadows and highlights as portra
  11. Thnx for the quick reply. Would Simon Brown's CustomBrushesMini.pdb (came with CustomBrushesMini.dll ) be an example of an "ancillary non-DLL file" which can be left in the effects folder ? What is a ".pdb" file ?
  12. 1. Can I create subdirectories, (e.g. one subdirectory for each plugin author), within the effects directory; and then place the plugin dll files within their coresponding subdirectory ? OR 2. Should/MUST the effects directory contain nothing but the individual dll files ? No subdirectories? No Readme (or other txt files) ? No nothing else but dll's ? 3. Can I create a subdirectory within the Paint.Net directory (e.g. "instructions") where I can save/store any saved instructions, comments on plugin use, explainations, etc. (similar to the way I might put explanitory comments within th
