  1. MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin has been superseded by a newer version: Hi everybody! This isn't really a new plugin, just modified version from old OptiPNG file type plugin. Switching old OptiPNG plugin is recommended because it uses outdated version of OptiPNG which contains security vulnerabilities. Functionality is same and source based on I Like Pi's code, so most of the credit doesn't belong to me. Downloads: Download Plugin: OptiPNG plugin.ZIP Download Source: Installation: Both the OptiPngFileType.dll and optipng.exe need to be in the FileTypes directory. Changelog: October 7, 2011 - updated OptiPNG to 0.65, little reformatting to code and few changes to UI June 12, 2012 - updated OptiPNG to 0.7.1, and tiny changes to code I don't really care how do you use modifications I made, but because original plugin is licensed under GPLv3 this plugin is also licensed under GNU General Public License (GPL) v3 OptiPNG plugin.ZIP
  2. Moderators Note: This application is incompatible with v4. See the 'ZIP Archive' FileType Plugin for an alternative. This standalone executable saves each layer in a PDN file as a separate file. IMPORTANT: Unlike most plugins, you should not put this in Paint.NET's effects or filetypes folder. Just put it anywhere and open it by double-clicking. You still need to have a Paint.NET installation, though. Download Compiled EXE: Layer Source Code: License: GNU General Public License (GPL) v3 Source
  3. MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin has been superseded by a newer version: I did not see any plugins for rounding the corners of an image (like below), so I decided to create one. The effect DLL is attached to this post. The plugin requires the .NET framework 3.5, so you will have to install it, if you do not already have it. The source code, and additional information is available here: http://dan9298.blogs...r-rounding.html.
  4. MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin has been superseded by a newer version: TechnoRobbo's DistortThis! V2.7.5+ This is a distortion plugin (duh). Version 2.7.0+ adds manual value input and Persistent Data during session. Version 2.6.6 Adds X & Y Symmetry Option (Suggested by Pratyush) Version 2.6.5 Updated Render routine - to avoid potential issues Version 2.6.3 adds more control to Forced Perspective Version 2.6.2 -better preview. - select work area to distort. - better forced perspective Hidden Content: Version 2.5.3 Faster Version 2.5.1 will work with selections Version 2.5.0 Larger interface -Click and Drag Handles - single pixel accuracy Version 2.2 release fixes the full frame bug - allows more free form shapes Version 2.0 for PDN 4.0 Alpha Transparency for Concave Shapes also Faster - Streamlined Hit-Test Algorithm Controls default to Full Screen and Transparency Version 1.5 adds AlphaTransparency to Convex Shapes Version 1.7 allows you to create accurate perspective distortion Normally DistortThis! warps images as if your pulling stretching then corners. When Perspective is on the image is distorted as if it were 3D!!!! Menu: Effects->Distort The controls: V2.6.3 Forced Perspective Forced Perspective works by assuming that the short edge of the target polygon is closer to the vanishing point and the longer edge is closer to the viewer. Sometimes this may not be the case so 2.6.3 introduces the ability to adjust the amount of forced perspective to compensate..

Youtube Instructions for Alpha Transparency: Perspective How it works: Distort This! is a texture mapping algorithm that takes a quadrilateral created by the control sliders, subdivides it into polygons, and use a cross product algorithm to find their relative area. The results are used to UV map the image. The VS Source Code for Programmer The Plug-In v2.7.5 (bug-fix release by @toe_head2001) (v2.7.5)

  6. I made this a while ago and have been using it. I decided, I would sign up and share it with you all. DL: Hope you all enjoy.
  7. Moderator Note: This plugin is incompatible with the latest versions of (beyond 4.0.10). Hey guys! Decided to try my hand at one of these here plugins. Sorry if I'm newbing it all up. This is similar to other "green screen" plugins, but it uses the secondary color and allows you to configure tolerances. Mainly what I was after in this plugin was the ability to control the "softness" of the effect which you can configure using the "Alpha Falloff" setting. Source: Download: Developed on: PDN 4.0.6, NET 4.5.2, WIN 10 Version 1.0.3 BugFix: Shade threshold is now based off of "Brightness" (setting is now more meaningful) Moved to new DinkPDN codebase (preparing to make moar stuff)

Polikarpotchkin) Version 1.0.6+ adds 4X Zoom and more ToolTips Version 1.0.5+ Fixes Smooth Quadratic Bug Version 1.0.3+ HDPI Updated - Special Thanks to Midora for helping with the testing. The Dwarf Horde Rob Tauler (TechnoRobbo) - Code Lead, Design John Robbins (Red Ochre) - Graphics Lead, Design Scott Stringer (Ego Eram Reputo) - Documentation Lead, Design David Issel (BoltBait) - Beta Testing, Design Foreword The ShapeMaker plugin is a tool which facilitates the creation of SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) Shapes, Lines and Curves. The tool itself uses a WYSIWYG interface where Lines, Curves and entire Paths can be created and manipulated using just the mouse. Knowledge of the complex SVG structure is not required. ShapeMaker will create all that complex stuff for you and generate the Shape, code, or a complete reusable file. Why did we write this plugin? We wanted to create an easy-to-use click-and-drag interface which could create custom Shapes that itself could reuse via the new Shapes tool. That's right. 4.0.6+ allows the user to add their own Shapes to the Shapes tool set. Not only can ShapeMaker Shapes be reused, the valid SVG generated can be pasted into HTML documents for modern browsers to render. We hope you like ShapeMaker! Video Tutorials
  9. MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin has been superseded by a newer version: The Plugin Browser by The Dwarf Horde Rob Tauler, John Robbins, David Issel & Scott Stringer aka TechnoRobbo, Red Ochre, BoltBait and Ego Eram Reputo Version 1.0.4.+ The Plugin Browser plugin was designed to make plugins easier to locate and identify, especially when a large collection of plugins is installed. The Plugin Browser plugin does this by allowing the User to search alphabetically by plugin name, keyword(s), author or menu location. Included in these searches are the Plugin Title and Description. Once you find a plugin, you can run it right from inside of the Plugin Browser. Plugin Browser plugin gives the User the ability to Bookmark their favorite plugins and add their comments to bookmarked plugins so they can identify it and make notes about its use. As well as being a search tool, the Plugin Browser is capable of displaying an embedded image which we call the Preview Image. The idea of the Preview Image is to give the User a visual clue to the plugin’s function. In most cases the Preview Image will be an example of the effect or adjustment. The Plugin Browser will also suggest plugins that you don't have but may want to download. Once a month the Plugin Browser connects to the forum and downloads a copy of the Plugin Index. This file is used to match keyword searches against plugins by parsing the plugin descriptions from the Index. You will receive a prompt before the download goes ahead.

  10. MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin has been superseded by a newer version; available in BoltBait's pack: Due to the other Plugin's link being dead, BoltBait and I made a quick solution for Flipping a selection. This is unlike PdN's flip whereas it flips the whole image and crops to the selection, and this actually flips the selection. DLL: FlipPlugin.dll Source:
  11. MODERATORS NOTE: This effect is incompatible with Paint.NET 4.x. Please use 'Fill From Clipboard' as an alternative. This addin fills the current image with a tiled version of another image. Just copy an image to the clipboard, create a new image that is larger than the first, and run the addin. For example, start with something like this: And the tiled version could look like this: It can be useful for creating textures, or patterned backgrounds. The addin is attached to this post, and the source code is available here:
  12. Moderators Note: @toe_head2001 has recompiled this plugin to work under PDN 4. You can find the new version here: Point Warp / Engorged Smudge for PDN 4 This plugin applies a `point warp' at a given location on the image. It's basically bulge [ :Bulge: ] but in the horizontal plane instead of the vertical. The UI (v1.1) - I'm not truly sure of the uses for it, but it's interesting at best what can be done with it. Completely based on the Gaussian function and nothing more or less. Made with the v3.20 UI. DLL and source (both ZIP'd) attached. Edit: After figuring out what I actually meant when I wrote the base of this code back in April, I made some small modifications to the UI and code that should look and work with more intuitivity. (v1.1 minor)
  13. MODERATORS NOTE: This effect is incompatible with Paint.NET 4.0x; An update is available here: I decided to improve the zoom blur effect. I started from scratch using the effect template for VS2005. It is faster than the built-in zoom effect and you can move the center. Enjoy ! DLL : Sources : License : Same as Paint Dot Net license. (MIT)

The Original is on the left followed by the built-in Unfocus and then Unfocus+. Unfocus+ produces a result which is more realistic (as seen in the background of almost every night-time film scene) Second up, a high-contrast shot. Notice how the dark areas 'thin-out' and have a more pronounced edge. True Blur - tileable option tile is blurred and then tiled... note the boundaries The Original is on the left followed by the built-in Gaussian Blur and then True Blur with tiling on Edit 2009-04-03: removed PolarInversionPlus from list - see Ed Harvey Effects Archive for more details
  15. MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin has been superseded by a newer version: I've Done Some Small Changes In The Barcode-Project, and Re-Compile It Using The .Net 3.5sp1, with Visual-Studio 2008. - It Renders Much Faster Now. - It Uses Less Memory. - File Size Of Build DLL is Smaller. I've attached the source and DLL for you, It is tested and working, also hoping you take the lead from this one. thanks for a great plugin.
  16. NOTE: This plugin is incompatible with Paint.NET 4.0. Use the most recent version found here: This plugin integrates OptiPNG with Paint.NET. It optimizes PNG to make them smaller, which is good for web use. Compiled DLL: OptiPNG Both the DLL and optipng.exe need to be in the FileTypes directory. November 30 - updated to OptiPNG 0.62, some minor changes suggested by antond October 24 - updated to OptiPNG 0.61, no changes in my code June 20 - updated to OptiPNG 0.6, no changes in my code Source Code: License: GNU General Public License (GPL) v3 Source
  17. MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin has been superseded by a newer version: Version 1.1.x of my Paint.NET Barcode Plugin is completed. Note: I do not have access to a barcode reader and have not checked the validity of the barcodes, but they should be accurate ? Version 1.1.x supports Code 39 and POSTNET barcodes, as well as fixes some rendering issues. '' encoded with Code 39 '12345' encoded with POSTNET For more information about what is going on in the code you can visit:
  18. MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin no longer functions, and is no longer available. Download Uploading images to the internet is common nowadays, and yet it still takes effort to save the image to one's hard-disk, go to a photo hosting service, find the image in your badly organized file-system and copy the link. This plugin allows you to just flatten the image, select Effects -> Tools -> Upload to... and follow the on-screen instructions. Hidden Content: How to add Photobucket support. Download PhotobucketNet, rename it to PhotobucketNet.dll and place it in the same folder (Paint.NETEffects) as UploadTo.
  19. NOTE: This plugin is no longer being maintained or updated, and is incompatible with Paint.NET 4.x. You can read all about HD Photo here: NOTE: This is a BETA release. Eventually it will be built-in to Paint.NET though. Edit: This is no longer the plan. Installation Instructions: 1) Copy HDPhoto.dll to C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/FileTypes 2) Restart Paint.NET (if it was already started) If you installed to a place other than "C:/Program Files/Paint.NET" then substitute the appropriate directory name. Download: Change Log: v0.1, April 5th -- Initial release. Expires on June 1st, 2007. v0.2, April 28th 2007 -- Added ability to open images that are not 32-bit BGRA. Also added ability to save in 24-bit format. This version now expires on July 1st, 2007. v0.2 (again), June 16th, 2007 -- Recompiled and re-uploaded. Expiration date is now September 1st, 2007, and also will expire if Paint.NET reports that it is version 3.20 or newer. July 4th -- reuploaded version that should work now. v0.3 -- September 8th, 2007 -- Recompiled and re-uploaded. Removed date-based expiration in favor of version-based expiration. This plugin will cease working if Paint.NET is upgraded to version 3.20 or newer (which doesn't exist yet -- the plan is simply to have the plugin integrated by then). v0.4 -- December 14th, 2007 -- New release that works w/ Paint.NET v3.20. Version expiration now set so that it won't expire until Paint.NET v4.0.
  20. MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin has been superseded by a newer version: Very simple plugin that probably already exists. Uses the Sobel Filter from AMD's Render Monkey's normal map example to calculate the first order derivatives of the image. Light angle is adjustable. This plugin will probably only help you if you're a 3D artist and you have a height map that, for some reason, you want to transform to a normal map. I imagine that situation will be rare.. Version history: 1.0 - 2nd Jan 09: initial version, may include the ugly icon. 1.1 - 2nd Jan 09: various speed improvements. ps: I'm not an artist myself, in fact I'm so very not an artist that I didn't even give my plugin a proper icon. If you're an artist and you make a nice icon that you feel goes well with this plugin, please send it to me so that I can include it. edit: and I release this thing to the Public Domain. edit: Support terminated. You can still download it, at your own peril. This plugin is officially dead.
  21. Hi there! This is the first version of the Alpha Transform plugin. Recently, I needed to create an alpha mask based on the brightness of each pixel in the image, and I wanted a full range (0-255) of alpha values even though the brightness of the pixels was within a narrow range. I couldn't find any simple way of doing this, and so I decided to develop the Alpha Transform plugin. The range of brightness (of the pixels to be transformed) is specified by two limits. Pixels with brightness below the lower limit get alpha set to 0 (fully transparent). Pixels with brightness above the upper limit get alpha set to 255 (fully opaque). Pixels with brightness in the range between the lower and upper limits get alpha set to a value between 0 and 255 depending on their brightness. The brightness of a pixel is normally determined from the HSV Value (V), but there is an option to use Luminance (perceived brightness) instead. There is also an option to invert the alpha values assigned to pixels, and an option to replace all pixel RGB colors by the current Primary Color. Hope it works for you! Please let me know if you have any problems. This effect has been superseded. See this thread:
  22. MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin has been superseded by a newer version: I was bored and I decided to try doing a filter for fun, so I coded a little resize plugin based on the SubLCD algorithm by Kim Øyhus. This is also the first time I try coding a plug in... Not that I spent much time with it. It's useful if you want to display your images in a LCD/Plasma screen as it gives the apearence of a little more resolution. It's what's used to render fonts nowadays. For more information check: Now following with some samples (normal resize on the left, SubLCD on the right): Some lines generated with some line generator plugin... Text! A logo... notice the sleeves, look much sharper with SubLCD. A colour picture where it's "easy" to spot difference: look at the details in the helmet, and the holes. All pictures should at least look sharper on a LCD screen. Download it here: BTW: You should crop half of the image after using the plugin. I didn't bore to see how it's done. :oops: The source, I used CodeLab, is in the zip. Enjoy.
