April Update

 

No less than seven new toys for you this month, including one new filetype and a contribution from a new author.  Welcome @Legorol

Measure Object - @Martin Osieka. Measures an object in a selection within the active layer. Measurements returned are: area, location, width, height, diagonal, and angles of the bounding rectangle.

PostScript FileType - @Martin Osieka. Imports PostScript (*.PS) , Encapsulated PostScript (*.EPS), and Adobe Illustrator (*.AI) files and renders them as bitmap layers in Paint.NET. Requires Ghostscript to be installed.

TR's DrumSkin - @TechnoRobbo. Re-maps rectangular images to circular.

TR's HDR-ish - @TechnoRobbo. Mimics HDR style images by smoothing out the transitions between light and dark, making a dull picture less dull

TR's PanoPDN Panoramic  Viewer - @TechnoRobbo. Converts equirectangular images (think: spherical images or spherical projections) into a texture map and renders them in direct3d.

TR's SphereCuber - @TechnoRobbo. Converts a Spherical View image into a cube-map of six files representing Up, Down, Left, Right, Front & Back views.

Unblend - @Legorol. Removes a chosen color from the image and replaces it with transparency. In other words, it performs the reverse of a normal blend operation with the chosen color.

May Update

Eight new plugins this month. I'm sure you'll find something interesting in this list of additions to the Plugin Index!

AmigaIcon - @Connect 9600. Load and save Amiga (.info) files. To use, copy AmigaIcon.dll and AmigaIcon.palettes to the Paint.NET FileTypes folder.

Fill From ClipBoard - @BoltBait. Fill a layer or selection using the contents of the clipboard. See post #6 in the linked thread.

Fill From File - @BoltBait. Fill a layer or selection using an existing image. See post #6 in the linked thread.

Slinky - @Red ochre. Render ellipses or circles along a line or curve... or in concentric circles. Named after the helical spring toy, this effect can be made to mimic.

TR's KlumpNoiz - @TechnoRobbo. Groups generated "noise" together in clumps to create colorful, vaguely fractal patterns.

TR's Paste Warp - @TechnoRobbo. Warps an image contained in the clipboard to fill any active selection.

TR's Plasmatics - @TechnoRobbo. Recreate the 80's with this old fashioned Plasma Effect. Cool man, cool.

Twainable+ - @null54. Allows Paint.NET to use 32-bit TWAIN drivers on a 64-bit OS. Place both files in the /Effects/ folder.

Can you tell me where the Font plug-ins are?

There are no "font" plugins. Paint.NET uses the fonts that are already installed in Windows.

If you want more fonts in Paint.NET, just go to a font site, like dafont.com and download/install your selected fonts into Windows.

Dpy has a number of text related plugins in his pack here.  Maybe you're after one of these?

June Update

 

Seven shiny new plugins this month!

Helix - @Red ochre. Draws a range of helical and spiral shapes. Many choices of shapes and colors.

Lameography - @BoltBait. Paint.NET 4.0x version of boltBait's Lomography plugin.

Mirror Selection - @GOAE. Mirror a selection horizontally, vertically or both.

TR's Glass Vignette - @TechnoRobbo. A Refraction-like distortion with an un-distorted center. In other words - it distorts the image as if it were viewed through curved glass. Shiny!

TR's SelfEeZ - @TechnoRobbo. Captures an image directly from a webcam and imports it into the current layer.

TR's Strange Attractors - @TechnoRobbo. A fractal generator which uses chaos theory to pump out the fractals known as Strange Attractors - think: wavy line patterns.

Vignette+ - @BoltBait. Enhanced vignette plugin. Adds a black, white or colored vignette. Softer than the built in effect.

Are these plugins for version 4, or even for 3.5.11?

These plugins work in 3.5.11 unless specifically stated otherwise. As the above authors have mentioned, many also work with 4.0x.

In the case of both of my plugins, downloads are provided for both 3.5.11 and 4.0.

 

My plugins are built and tested in 3.5.11 or using a 3.5.11 references so they can be used in both.

 

Mine are written for 3.5.11 - I've had no reports of any problems on the latest 4 beta (5226), so assume they will be ok for that too.

 

These plugins work in 3.5.11 unless specifically stated otherwise. As the above authors have mentioned, many also work with 4.0x.

 

Thank you all very much.   <3  My Paint version 3.5.11 and windows 7 home premium. They are all amazing!

I have downloaded the latest version of pdn and to avoid freeze ups from plugins I deleted all of them from 4,0's effects folder and I'm downloading them all new with just the compatible ones. I have quite a few installed that are compatible so far. I was looking for that list you started of the compatible or non-compatible plugins and can't find it. Could you please steer me in the right direction?

Next edition of the Plugin Index will divide plugins into Yes and No for Paint.NET 4.0x.  Somehow.  I've yet to decide on the most efficient method to use.

 

With the relatively small number of plugins that are incompatible I might just add to their description that they don't work with 4.0x.  I'll point the reader to any updates/rewrites of the plugin if they exist.

August Update

Four new plugins this month.

Color Harmonies - @Martin Osieka. Easily create harmonious palettes or variants derived from a base color.

TR's Color Reducer and palette maker - @TechnoRobbo. Reduce the number of colors (n) in an image. Useful to reduce file sizes. Editable color table if n<1000 and ability to save as a palette if n<97.

Two Tone Threshold - @Red ochre. Assesses the tones in an image and apportions two colours between the thresholds.

List of Filetypes is unchanged. So I changed the date :mrviolet:

Thanks NN.

Humble apologies to all. I have been busy but that's no excuse. I will flag these plugins for a inclusion next month.
