How do I use pngs as a plugin?

Recommended Posts

I've seen pngs listed in the plugins section as plugins, but no info as to how to do this. Do I just download them into paintnet user files & they will appear in effects as a plugin or do I need to do something else to make this work? Thank you

The OptiPNG file type plugin?

Instead of installing the DLL in the Effects folder in the directory (default: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET), you install it in the File Types folder. You will then find the new file type (which is actually a compressional version of the standard, in-built PNG format) in the Save (As) dialog. You use it as any other format, although this does offer additional options to your arsenal.
