None of my manually-added effects are showing up


Recommended Posts

Here's the thing. One day, i decided to make something on paint.NET. I looked at the tutorials for something cool to make, but it needed a few effects. Usually, I would just go to another tutorial, but the Energy Ball just sounded so cool. I installed the effects it told me to. I re-opened paint.NET, only to find a message that said that a few files were missing or damaged, and it asked me if I wanted to repair them. I clicked yes, and started on my image. When the tutorial said to use a certain effect, I opened up the effects window, just to find that I only had the default effects that came with the download of paint.NET. Anyone have an idea of what I should do?

When you download a .zip file, you need to download it, then extract the files to C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects.

When you download a .dll file, you need to save it right to C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects. Then, either restart (if you have it open already) or open Paint.NET. If the effects still do not work, post another reply or PM me.
