MadJik Posted March 10, 2018 Share Posted March 10, 2018 Spot the center What's this? When you have selected an area with the ellipse tool, have you ever needed to find the center? So, you need this effect. Draw a dot or a + at the center. Center could be: -center of the canvas, -center of the selection, -center of the weighted selection (not dimension but number of pixels). Download it! Plugin SpotCenter.dll Here is the DLL http://jcljay.free.fr/pdn/SpotCenter.zip The MadJik's All plugins package is available! http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=7186 How to install Close Paint.net Classic version of Paint.net Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects (please reverse / for correct path) Microsoft Store version of Paint.net Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: My Documents/paint.net App Files/Effects (please reverse / for correct path) You have to adapt for your language My Documents The User interface This plugin is added to the menu Effects, submenu Selection. Size of marker horizontal/vertical Choose 0 for a single dot. Default is 1 for a small cross. More than one to draw lines passing through the center. Link horizontal-vertical When checked you could use one slider to define the both horizontal-vertical. Steps Instead of a line, increase the steps to have multiple spots from the center. Color of the spot Default is the primary color, but you could change it on the fly. Transparency Value 255 means opaque (no transparency). Adjustment Once the center is known then you could adjust it +/- some pixels. The middle of 5 pixels is the third. □□□□□ The middle of 4 pixels isn’t a pixel… □□|□□ Spot Center Three modes are available: -Selection: the middle is half the width and half the height of the selection, -Canvas: the middle is half the width and half the height of the image regardless the selection, -Weight: each pixel of the selection is 1 unit of weight. The center is estimated with the average weight per line and per raw. Voilà!
