Passed the 600th effect mark last night.  I think the Plugin Index has doubled in the number of entries.


Revision should be ready for the April update.  


Unfortunately the Forum post limit will not allow all the new information to be held in the posts.  I intend to revert to a simpler listing on the forum and make everything else available in the PDF.  Epub and Kindle versions will be updated the following month and won't be available this month.

Final count for the Plugin Index is 629 entries (the previous version had 460).


PDF now extends to 36 pages (previously 15).

April  (major) Update

The Plugin Index has been completely revised this month.  There are 630+ listings in the index. This means that it is too large to be posted in the forum :( I've therefore abbreviated the forum listings and included the extra data in the PDF.

Sorry, no Kindle or Epub versions this month. I have a life too! I'll hopefully have these version updated for the May edition.
New this month:

Homeworld2 ROT file import - @susgeorgesu. Import Homeworld 2 ROT image files as used in the game 'Home World 2' by Sierra Entertainment, Inc.

Also new is this filetype plugin:

Spritesheet Export Plugin - @MadDugan. Saves a multilayered sprite sheet to a single layered file with the layers positioned side-by-side.

I've found time to format the Epub and Kindle versions.  Attached to the first post.  Enjoy!

Thanks bethg7.

Glad you're enjoying my book and finding the Plugin Index useful. Paint.NET is certainly extremely powerful when you spend the time required to get to know it. It's fun to play with too!

Is There a way you can make a "Download All" button? I like to have a bunch of plugins just in case I need them, but I really do not want to go to go down this huge list.

Please??? :D

Ha I'm not sure that's such a great idea...paint.net loads slow enough with just 300 of them xD

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

Blend modes are like the filling in your sandwich. It's the filling that can change your experience of the sandwich. ~Ego Eram Reputo

No chance.  One plugin used well is worth 300 that were installed and never used.  Listen to what pdnnoob and welshblue are telling you about this.
