bit irrelevant in this topic but is there an easy way to make plugins or does anyone know if theres a plugin that selects all the pixels of a certain range of colours on an image


Plugins cannot create or modify a selection.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

@odam - welcome to the forum!
Your question should really be in the discussions and questions section - or even developer's central if you plan to write your own plug-in.


@null54 is technically correct regarding 'selection', however it is possible to 'detect' pixels within a colour range and set all other pixels to transparent.
There are quite a few plug-ins that can already do this including my own (ancient) Recolour choice

Try searching the plug-in index here: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/15260-plugin-index/

Yes, CodeLab. @BoltBait has published quite a few excellent tutorials to get you started.
