Help getting back the extra adjustments

Recommended Posts

Hello there. After the last update I lost from the adjustments menu the extra ones with a puzzle symbols on them.They where more advanced versions of the normal adjustment tools.  I really loved the one that let me change selected colors. If I in a picture of different colored planets, if I wanted to only change the green one to red, I could select the color range of green to be affected and change it just like the Hue/saturation one without affecting the other colors on the picture. How do I get them back? I do not care if I have to pay for them, I really liked them. It is really sad that the updates remove stuff without telling me what it removes, and no way to find them again. It is really frustrating to lose the tools I use without warning, and makes me afraid to update the program.

 

Hope to hear from you guys/gals.

 

With best Regards from me.

Those "puzzle symbols" meant those adjustment tools were plugins. I don't know if plugins being removed after an upgrade is normal behavior or not but those appear to be from BoltBait's plugin pack, you can try downloading and reinstalling his plugin pack.

Yes. I have no idea why I got them, or why they where removed, but they came with  last time I downloaded the paint.net program, and was gone after the update. The plugins I had manually installed was left alone. Thank you so much for the help. This was what I was after, and I have it installed now. I will make sure to donate to both him and paint.net on my next payday. I really appreciate it!

 

Have a great day!

Do you perhaps remember what version you upgraded from and assuming you upgraded to the latest (4.1.6)? Store version? Was it through the in-app upgrade or some other method? Could give some context into what happened and maybe others could figure it out.

It appears that your Paint.NET Effects sub-folder has somehow been deleted or moved.
The plugins with the puzzle piece icon are for indicating that these are not built into Paint.NET

but have been added on through installing plugins.

Look into the Effects folder to see what is in it.

If your  Effects folder has been moved, you need to put it back where it belongs.
BTW:
I have backups of my Effects, FileTypes, and Shapes sub-folder just in case of an event that you are experiencing.

I downloaded it for the first time on my new pc about 3-4 weeks ago I believe. I did only install the program, and then the new tools where there already, so I only downloaded grim color reaper because it is a favorite of mine. Then when the update came they where gone. Grim stayed though.

Thank you so much for the advice. I will take it to hearth.

You mentioned that this install of Paint.NET is on a new computer.
Do you have an old computer that has a copy of Paint.NET installed?
If so, and the old computer may have the plugins you need in its Paint.NET Effects, FileTypes, and Shapes sub-folders.
You can copy them onto a thumb drive and paste them into the Paint.NET folder on your newest computer.
