Is it possible to make a plugin that does basic pdn actions all at once?


Recommended Posts

Hey, i've been using PDN for years now and now that i'm using it more often for some personal work, i would like to know if there's a way to develop a plugin to do some actions that pdn already has (and if possible some from plugins i have installed), but all at once. As some sort of shortcut to make my work a little easier.

 

What i'd like my plugin to do is kinda simple:

Change Canvas Size (adding 4px each side) > Outline Object (with a width of 2px) > Set Lightness/Brightness (From HSV) to 100

 

I wouldn't mind if both of these actions had their values already set without a way to change them since i literally always use the same settings, i just want a way to do these actions faster since i normally apply them to multiple files making it pretty tedious to do manually.

I have some very basic knowledge of both C++ and C#, so i'd like to know, how could i go around making this, and would it be too difficult?

I realize this would be less convenient than a plugin that does exactly what you requested, but you could write a plugin to copy the desired image to the clipboard. You could then paste the image with a Ctrl+V, selecting the Expand Canvas option (which only requires pressing Enter). That might be a easier than repeating the steps for each image. Once it was done for one image, it could be repeated for other images with Ctrl+F (Repeat last Effect), Ctrl+V (Paste), Enter (Expand canvas), Ctrt+D (Deselect), Ctrl+S (Save).
