Plugin suggestions


Recommended Posts

Hello! 

 

I can't believe I had not found this earlier.... I've been using Paint.net for a long time and I had never seen the forum or the plugins. Thanks to all developers for your great work!! 

 

I have no knowledge of illustration, and the directory is a bit overwhelming so I'm turning to the community for a piece of advice: 

 

My main use of Paint.net of to create grid patterns for embroidery and weaving from images. I'm looking for a plug in selection that would allow me to turn an image (line art of silhouettes) into a "pixelated" form where each cell is 1/8 in by 1/8th in, like if I would be drawing it in graph paper. 

 

For example, my latest project is to turn the attached image into a grid of 96 by 96 cells, each of the previous size

 

What would you recommend for this?? 

 

Thank you!

Why can't you just use the Pixelate effect?

Because that distorts the image too much if I try for big cells, like this 

But you said the cells would be 1/8th of an inch.

You need to resize the image by like 1,000%, and then run Pixelate. That should do what you want... if I understand you correctly. ;)

(1,000% is just an example. You need to do the math based on the individual images.)
