Tile Fill Addin

Recommended Posts

MODERATORS NOTE:  This effect is incompatible with Paint.NET 4.x.

Please use 'Fill From Clipboard' as an alternative.

This addin fills the current image with a tiled version of another image.

Just copy an image to the clipboard, create a new image that is larger than the first, and run the addin.

For example, start with something like this:

Swirl.jpg

And the tiled version could look like this:

swirlPattern.jpg

It can be useful for creating textures, or patterned backgrounds.

The addin is attached to this post, and the source code is available here:

I hate to ask but, *cry* where is the addon in paint.net? I cannot find it. :(  TYIA!

It is located under the Fill submenu in 3.5.11, unfortunately it is not yet compatible with the current 4.0 beta build 5268.

I can't find it under the fill submenu.

 

BTW I'm using version 3.510.4297.28970 (to the last decimal in the properties file).

Never mind. I figured it out by watching a video. But my new problem is that I want to only fill a certain area, not the whole screen. What I was looking for is like the fill tool, but with pictures instead of colors

Here's a copy of the source code that's compatible with paint.net v4.0.7+ (when paint.net started using .NET 4.6). I've made some minor changes to the code so that it will compile, and so that it won't crash. No other changes were made.

 

TileFillFromClipboard_Source.zip

 

This is only meant for educational purposes, so I won't provide a built DLL file. If you want a proper tiling plugin, use the one(s) Boltbait created.

:roll: Imageshack. Fixed. For now...

Strange...so  I guess you can see them. Still just image name text here?

Still not showing for me - tested with Firefox, Edge and chrome.

All I see is the text "swirlqj5.jpg". Perhaps Imageshack doesn't like the U.K.? :/

 

No big deal for me as rest of forum is fine... but I guess most images are hosted on PB or Imgur.
