Align Object needs to be used on an object (i.e. a group of pixels) which is surrounded by transparent pixels. Put your object on it's own layer and run the plugin.

It seems to be working fine after Testing around. Thanks for feedback ?

Greetings!

 

Pasted pixels into new layer on a larger image, chose the plugin command, clicked every button in the menu and the selected pixels didn't move. Am I misunderstanding the plugin's effect?

I'm trying to find a way to move freshly pasted group of pixels to current center of the canvas (screen center, that is), without having to drag them from the corner after each new paste operation. Will the plugin be of any help in that case?

If the pixel group is pasted on a new transparent layer, it will be helpful.
The plugin only works on objects on a transparent laye
r.

After pasted, be sure to deselect the pixels as @toe_head2001 said.

Not my case.

I do not understand your case. The Align Object effect does work for me.

My case: copy item icon from the sheet, select only meaningful pixels of it, paste the pixels onto map image and move to indicate the correct position of said item. Every time I paste another icon I have to drag the pixels from top left corner by hand to currently centered area. I'm trying to find a way to either paste directly into current center (but not fix in place, as fine adjustment is needed) or to alter paste position with some plugin.

Sample pic attached (de-colored).

Paste each icon into it's own layer with Ctrl + Shift + V, then run the plugin on the layer.

Works that way, but the plugin uses image sides and corners, and as you can see on the pic, it's not my case. I was trying to find a workaround for dragging pasted image to center area, but it only gets more complicated with plugins, so I guess I'll just keep dragging.

What does the Test checkbox do? I can't seem to figure it out.

 

Well, the tooltips text is wrong. I will change it.
It's about low-opacity pixels which are not visible.
Test's purpose is to reveal these pixels.

Sometimes, around the object of interest these pixels are present and alignments can become confusing for less experienced users.
You can use this check box and Reset position button to see these pixels that lead to an alignment that does not meet user expectations.
