Distort This! v2.10 (Dec 27, 2021)

Recommended Posts

Version 2.10 has been released.


This version adds the ability to move a Side (two adjacent corners together).

I also made some minor improvements to the Mirror option(s).


See first post for download.

I dont' understand why distort this! does move vertically, when I set the nubs to distort only horizontally! (what is what I would need).


I made a simple example. Even the thin lower line of the rectangle gets moved up and made thick. The shape has changed to a triangle, but the proportions of the parts are not even kept. Pls note that I turned off Perspective, it is not checked. Questions:

(2) What is the sense of this?


(1) how do I stretch (or minus-stretch) something  hor-wise or such in any direction that I want to specify. For example stretching a foto horizontally, but trapezally (lower part more than upper part). (opposite to what I have drawn examplywise here.)

but when I set Perspective and V ~50 percent I get the effect I wish, but don't understand.

And don't understand where my previous post (topic in forum Paint.NET Discussions and Questions, a few minutes before this post) has disappeared to

and here are the images that correspond to the first "reply" (triangle)

(i'll also try to extend the distortion, surrounding the image with a larger canvas and post)

Hi, I can't get the DistortThis pluging function to show up in Paint.net Effects-Distort dropdown menu. I downloaded the Distortthis.zip and unzipped it and copied DistortThis.dll (only file in the zip) to C:\programfiles\paint.net. I restarted Paint.net but find no means to select the effect. I suspect there is another step I must do, but don't know what. Please help? This is my first Plugin download attempt, I am a newbie in this arena. Thanks

This is so much awesome. I've spent 2 hours with other perpective plugins to fit an image onto a laptop's screen (well, I thought it was a basic feature in Paint.net, but I could not reach the desired effect in the built-in tool, which is not bad anyhow). With DistortThis! it took under a minute. Work area is also an excellent idea! Hands down!
