How is the Glow Effect Plugin Programmed?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.
I've been using paint.net to make my drawings/graphics glow using Effects>Photo>Glow which is great, but now i need to create some dynamic glow effects for my game, and I was wondering if anyone has any idea how the Glow Effect is programmed? and what algorithm was used for it?
Thanks :)

1) :LayersDuplicateLayer: Duplicate Layer

2) Run :BlurEffect: Gaussian Blur

3) Run :BrightnessContrast: Brightness / Contrast

4) Change the :LayersLayerProperties: layer's Bend Mode to Screen.

5) :LayersMergeLayerDown: Merge Layer Down

Wow, I wasn't even thinking of this approach and was thinking that the glow effect alters the RGB channels directly based on some algorithm. Thank You for the algorithm @toe_head2001.  I'll try to convert the instructions into code and will post the results.  :)
