Is there a way or a plugin to make shapes in the option "Fill" be larger?


Recommended Posts

Hello! I've been using Paint.net for quite a while now and I also downloaded several plugins to ease my experience using it, but the only thing that I can't really tell how to get around is the size of the dots or the shapes when you use the preset options in "Fill" its too small even if I adjusted the size of it, it only makes the brushes larger not the shapes in it. It could really help a lot if someone know a solution for this.

I think @Ranierz means the Bucket Fill option in the tool bar?  If so, there is no way to change the sizes, you will have to use a Plugin, like Parallel Lines and Patterns, or, Random Shape Fill.

 

Oh - and welcome to the forum @Ranierz :)

A little late replying - I hope you see this. Pixey suggests some good alternatives but if you specifically want those fill patterns but larger, this method may help... there are other work-arounds too.

 

MJW's 'Paste from Clipboard' plugin is very useful:

 

0. Install the plugin and re-start Paint.net.
1. Create a new image, quite small, say 32 by 32 pixels.
2. Edit/Select all.
3. Fill with the desired fill pattern (Paint bucket tool).
4. Edit/Copy.
5. Return to the image you are working on and select the area you wish to fill.
6. Run Effects/Selection/Paste from clipboard, select the tiled option and play with the size slider.

 

@MJW - a 'nearest neighbour' option for 'anti-alias quality' could be useful for these small patterns. Great effect Btw - thanks!
