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.

dipstick, You've been on the forum long enough to know that only the latest version of Paint.NET is supported. You're on your own for requests like that.

I used to have the smudge tool, but on my last update of paint.NET, it seems to have disappeared.  Does that mean I have to pay for it now?

 

I'm not sure how you reached that conclusion, but the Smudge plugin is still free (gratis & libre).

You probably have an old incompatible version of Smudge. Try downloading it anew.

When I tried to do that, it seemed that a donation was required.  Do you have a link where I can find it?  Thanks toe-head2001.  :)

 

EDIT:  Sorry, I did find the link to download the zip file from pyrochild.  Unfortunately I got an error message when I tried to unzip the file.  Any advice?

 

EDIT 2: I tried a tactic that worked once before, which was unzipping the file in the download folder, then cutting and pasting directly to the paint.NET folder.  It sort of worked, but Norton flagged two of the components as dangerous and deleted them: grid warp.dll and gradient mapping.dll.  Smudge doesn't even show up.  Has anyone else had this problem?

It is well known in the forum that it is a Norton problem. The file is safe but Norton treats it as a dangerous file.
