Quick way of inserting one image underneath another?

Recommended Posts



Please see reference image above.


Basically, I'm looking for a quick way to paste a series of images of the same width into one long image. 


Right now my process is: 


1. Copy image 1 

2. "New" 

3. Set height to some arbitrarily large value 

4. Paste image 1 and align it at the top of the new blank image 

5. Paste in images 2, 3, 4 etc. one at a time and manually pixel-align them under one another. 


Step 5 in particular is very time-consuming.


Is there a faster way of doing this?

Yes, but not with Paint.NET.


If you're willing to use a command line, ImageMagick makes this very easy:

In G'MIC, you can use this command in cli:


gmic ig \"folder location\" append y o name_of_img.png

I am away from this forum for undetermined amount of time: If you really need anything related to my PDN plugin or my G'MIC filter within G'MIC plugin, then you can contact me via Paint.NET discord, and mention me.

It would be great to have this 'paste on side' capability in Paint.NET, which would expand the canvas and paste the image on the chosen side.

I have to do this frequently (pasting screenshots of dialogs next to each other) and is the only reason that I switch to Irfanview, which has this capability, as shown below.
