Editable Text v1.0 STABLE

Recommended Posts

Secure Download

If you get a warning, try the unencrypted download.

An often-requested feature now included in Popular Feature Requests is the ability to re-edit text. This plugin is an alternative text-tool that includes that feature. It works by using Steganography to store the details of the text in the text layer.

To add text to an image, create a new layer and click Effects -> Tools -> Editable Text. Then enter the text and text style. To edit the text, simply run the plugin again. Do not make any changes to that layer apart from layer properties and editing the text with this plugin.

Awesome idea!

A couple things:


  • [*:3jyt8up1]It seems like you're only using the B channel instead of all R, G, and B.
    [*:3jyt8up1]Why is the alpha set to 2 instead of 0?
    [*:3jyt8up1]I get a weird dark border with light colored text.

It seems like you're only using the B channel instead of all R, G, and B.

I guess I should look at that - I probably based the whole encoding on the index data - which would need to have a higher range.

Why is the alpha set to 2 instead of 0?

Unnecessary on second-thought - it is basically how the application determine whether a pixel was a code pixel when the pixels were placed in random positions on the vertical axis.

I get a weird dark border with light colored text.

I have no idea how to solve that - my plugin simply passes the size value to the new Font() method.

As I have said, this plugin is still in beta and I will fix those issues when I have time.

Most of your plugins start with very good and necessary ideas but very often they aren't very good executed... They are very often missing very important parts as like AA or proper undo options^^

Thanks :)

I downloaded it and put the files in C:\Program Files\Paint.NET

is that right or should it be in another location.

Because it takes too long to open and to respond to the text edits.

Any help.

Thanks a lot.

Thanks.

I put it there.

Still, when I try to use it it does not show before sometime, and it sort of "hangs".

Paint.net is fine, it just happens with the plug-in.

Is it compatible with version 3.36?

Thanks for the quick reply. :)
