Smudge


Recommended Posts

My touchpad looks somewhat like this:

The area highlighted in red, on many touchpads, can be used for scrolling. What I'm saying is, if you have that functionality, it should be compatible with the smudge plugin.

apparently, our dell touchpad does have those finger gestures, but i can see why we'd turned them off. they're not very reliable and definitely not accurate, but i doubt that's paint.net's fault, more like the limitation of our hardware and or it's drivers.

 

thanks very much for your help, although i think i'll just stick to using the scroll bars and zoom buttons for the foreseeable future.

I was pretty excited to see that you created a smudge brush as I use it often in other programs. However, I felt that the effect was rather intense, even when setting it to #1. As a result, it works more like a "push" brush set at low intensity rather than a "smudge" brush...at least for my purpose. I use "smudge" to smooth out skin and wrinkles and to softly blend inconsistancies in skin complexion, so if the effect is too strong it's not going to look natural. Just giving my feedback, in case you decide to make any adjustments in the future.

Thank you for creating those plugins. You and all the other contributors are simply amazing.

You can also try using a lighter brush like this one:

Yes they do (go in /Effects/). You need to unzip the pack and move or copy the files into the /Effects/ folder. Then restart paint.net.

Unfortunately the smudge plugin crashes paint.net:

would it be possible for your PS ABR script to be integrated into Smudge?

 

Possibly, I would have to investigate it more.

From a quick look at the Smudge plugin code on GitHub, the brush loading code would need a fairly extensive rewrite to handle formats other than PNG.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

Understood, and thanks for responding.

have a question regarding the Smudge Plugin.  When I use the plugin it defaults to Size 30.  Is there a way to alter this default setting?

 

I don't think this is possible.  But, you can use the left bracket  [ to decrease the size when you are in the Smudge canvas.
