Dear Seerose, <3:cake:  thank you so much for the wonderful picture and your kind words! You're always soooooooooooo nice ;)

And you already discovered the video about Rubber Stamp on YT, although I didn't post a link here ... :monocole:

To demonstrate some of the new features of CodeLab v3, I converted my 'Rubber Stamp' Visual Studio project to a CodeLab script.

New features specifically demonstrated here are:  the PreRender method, Slider Decorations (on Amount3), and Prop Rules (on Amount6).  Previously, those three things had to be done in Visual Studio.


Hopefully it will be of some interest to a few people.

It still works just fine in the current version of paint.net.

What makes you say it didn't work?

I downloaded it and installed it but it does not show up in my effects menu. I wonder if I didn't install it correctly? I am not very experienced with this stuff at all,   but I noticed there are two things to download above - the source code and the  rubberstampzip - are they both the same or do both need to be downloaded and installed in the effect folder in paint??? I watched several videos on how to unzip, copy to paint effects folder etc, but  it doesn't show up in my pull down screen with the other effects.   Do you have a method of downloading that you would be able to share, I really want this effect but I'm sure its something I'm not doing correctly. Thank you!!

Classic. Once I have unzipped the folder how do I open it to look at the dll folders? I am so confused, every video I watch they just double click on it and it opens, mine asks to find a program to open it??  Sorry I'm just not good at this stuff.

Not a problem, let's see if we can walk you through it :)


Right click on the zipped file and see if you have an option to Extract. If so hit that and then follow the prompt to extract the files.


Once you've extracted them, find where they were extracted to using your file explorer. Hint: probably in your Downloads folder.
