rwp80 Posted July 9, 2008 Share Posted July 9, 2008 (edited) Seasons Greetings! The Color Target Plugin Pack started off as 'Make Opaque' and developed into 'Color Target v1.0'. Successive versions of Color Target v1.0 (versions 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3) differ somewhat in their function, and thus became separate effects in their own right. This is the newest version of Color Target. Color Target Plugin Pack 13th July 2008 Unzip the file to your Paint.NET/Effects folder. (Normally, this is C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects) Open Paint.NET, and find the effects in the Effects>Colors menu. Color Target v1.3 (ColorTargetV13.dll) Use the Color Picker tool on the area to be retained. Color Target 1.3 retains pixels of a similar color and brightness, according to slider settings. All other pixels are made transparent. Color Target is the crowning achievement of this plugin pack; I urge you to try it on a photograph of yourself. Color Stretch v1.0 (ColorStretchV10.dll) (Formerly "Color Target 1.1") Color Stretch 1.0 enables the artist to stretch color values of pixels within specified threshold limits. Target Panel v1.0 (TargetPanelV10.dll) (Formerly "Color Target 1.1") Target Panel 1.0 is an advanced color manipulation tool. The daunting interface includes sixteen sliders: Eight for input, and eight for output. This tool works, but is not user-friendly. Here is a couple of demonstrations for Color Target v1.3 Here's a older demonstration of Color Target v1.0 (now obsolete and replaced by Color Target v1.3): Hidden Content: Here's a 'power-user' tutorial for the bear pic using Color Target v1.0: Get bear pic; Duplicate layer; Layer 1 - Black&White; Layer 2 - Hue/Sat (0,200,0), Hue/Sat (0,200,0), Color Target (0,255,0,0), Color Target (0,255,0,1), Gaussian Blur 6, Set layer to 'Multiply'. The user is required to use other Paint.NET skills in conjunction with these effects. Any effect is only as good as the artist. Common sense is mandatory! :wink: In an effort to keep things tidy, I have decided to delete the previous original post for 'Make Opaque' and 'Color Target v1.0'. My apologies to all those who commented below on the previous versions. For newer readers, keep in mind that any comments before 13th July 2008, are in reference to the older versions of the effect. Also, I recommend that any '.dll' files of older versions of Color Target or Make Opaque be deleted, as they are now obsolete. I hope you enjoy making use of these tools. 8) ColorTargetPluginPack130708.zip Edited December 27, 2014 by Ego Eram Reputo Added zipped *.dll Quote ::: My Gallery ::: ::: Color Target Plugin Pack ::: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
