Multiple Clipboard - Feature Request

Recommended Posts

As a G'MIC filters developer, I find it difficult to develop gmic filters that takes into account of 3 or more images without some workaround inside pdn, and this is a feature request aimed to get around this problem. I would like to add picture(s) into clipboard. This can also open up to new avenues for developing c# pdn filter as well.

I doubt it's possible to have multiple clipboards. The clipboard is part of Windows, and as far as I know, there's only one of them.

This doesn't really work as a workaround. I tested it, and G'MIC code filter with display debug shows at most [1] which means 2 images. Which brings me to a question to @Rick Brewster.

 

Can the clipboard history be accessible?

Sorry, I'm not adding this

 

Ok, so just one more thing, is there any plan to allow Paint.NET plugin to utilize more than clipboard and the current layer it's on without resorting to folder import or file import? Smudge for example is a plugin that benefits from this plan as you would be able to preview the end result or even smudge through multiple layer, and render the result from there.

Why isn't it possible to do like in GIMP and Krita, and be able to pass multiple layers to the G'MIC plug-in ? Are there any technical limitations ?

It is a limitation of Paint.NET's Effect plugin API.

Effects can only see the currently active layer, and cannot create new layers or images.
