Align Object


Recommended Posts

I see that now.  I also prefer it under the Effects menu for super easy access!


Must have downloaded mine before xod changed it.  :)

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.

Omg hours searching and I tried 3 different plugins and none of them worked and it was because of this. It's good news and bad news at the same time, there is no way to line up without doing that? I find it more laborious to have to add layers and enlarge them

Nope. All the Align plugins use the opaque/transparent border to establish the size of the 'object'.


Try this:


Select your object (with the Magic Wand or other selection tool).

Ctrl + C (copy)

Delete (the selection)

>> alternative to the last two commands = Ctrl + X (Cut - which copies the selection to the clipboard AND THEN removes the selection from the layer)

Ctrl + Shift + V (paste into a new layer)


and now run the align tool on the new layer which only has the object in it.

This seems to be having issues past version 5.0.10, maybe a few versions before that I'm not sure I've just recently jumped a few updates but thought I should let you know that you will need a pre 5.0.10 (or older, subject to how old the last compatible version of Paint.NET for this plugin is) instance of paint.net to support this plugin.


EDIT: Never mind, my PC seemed to be buggy or something haha, probably should've double checked before I made this post.
