I've forgotten to write working history somewhere... Question.

Recommended Posts

Hi. Yesterday I was working in Paint.net and forgotten to write history of what I've done. Now, I need to set a same filter to a many different images (red-phantom enemies filter in a game that I'm modding). So, is there any possibility to recall lost history? Or is it lost forever? Thank You. Still, if not, maybe someone have idea how to recreate my work as similar as is it possible?


Can't upload to attachment, too large size.

I'm sending tga files to mediafire in .zip archive, and jpeg on postimg. (I'm working on tga files)

I remember something with Color balance + plugin and brightness for sure I've done...















Thank You.

Sadly the History does not survive a close of the image or a restart of paint.net. While paint.net remains open it will remember the last used settings in each plugin dialog.


Going by your hints, I got close with...,


Adjustments > Brightness & Contrast: set Brightness to 60 and Contrast to 70.



Adjustments > Color Balance+ (dpy's version): check Shadows and turn the Red channel up to 100.



Duplicate the layer and set the top layer blend mode to Additive. Use the Opacity slider as a dimmer to control the brightness (I used 88 but you can go lower)

Ok, thanks for answer about history.


Thank You very, very much for trying to recreate texture and showing every step You've made (You even cared to take screenshots!), I really appreciate it.

About Your texture final effect, it's...... even better than before!

I love how the details (belts, chainmail, etc.) are highlited, looks like You have expierience in 2D, Thanks once more!

I will save and use Your steps on other images <3

I will credit You in mod credits too, no worries :)






Additive opacity 88, like You shown. Not lowered it.


Now it's closer to a +2 red color like on this pic (different game is btw):




Thanks once more for quick help! Take care! :beer:
