BlendModes Plus v2.3.5 (3/24/10)


Recommended Posts

Wow, thank you so much for this. I was wondering, is there any way of including a blend mode that could supersede the How to Clone Yourself tutorial. For example, any pixels on the top layer that are the same colour as the bottom layer become transparent, and the rest stay normal. PM me if you don't understand. Thanks :)

Thanks for the plug-in in any case, it is a very important plug-in for Paint.NET. Like Shape 3D, Feather and Smudge.

I'm not sure how easy it'd be to align the photos in a way that you'd get a good result.

I could try to whip something up. Just me a day or two and I'll see what I can do.

...otherwise known as the "normal" blend mode. :roll:

Except that unlike PDN's blend modes, this plugin actually modifies the image so it would effectively be a three-way merge.

I'm not an idiot. I'll give you an example and use these two images.

Notice the windows are at different locations.

This is an example of "Normal" blend mode on both BlendmodePlus and vanilla blend modes and there's also the average blend mode which is sort of what I mean but not really.

This is what I mean

Notice the boxes don't blend at all (unlike Average in BlendmodePlus) one is over the top of the other.

Hope you understand now, thanks for you efforts APShredder. Much appreciated

You could try duplicating the layer with your clone, changing the blend mode of the other layer to Lighten and to Darken on the other one.

Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.

Thanks guys!

@LJXD - I've been working on that blend mode you asked about, but it might take a bit longer then expected.

EDIT: Sorry LJXD, but I don't think a blend mode like that would work. I've tried a bunch of stuff, plus I've tried the code Simon was talking about, and nothing really works. I think BoltBait was right about this one. Sorry. :oops:

EDIT #2: UPDATE: Vivid Light blend mode added.

Hey man it's totally alright. I have limited experience with VB studio so you never know I may try it myself, there has to be a way. I hope. :)

Thanks for the constant updates and stuff.

I had been wondering when someone would create a plugin to mimic Photoshop's and Gimp's blending modes. Hopefully, Rick would be able to use some of this to incorporate it into PDN at some point in the future.

Excellent job, ap! Give yourself some :mtdew: for a job well done. And make more plugins! :mrgreen:

Officially retired from this forum. Have a nice day.

Hi APShredder,

Often I want to compare two layers A and B, yielding a third layer C which contains the signed differences between the respective pixels of A and B. The Difference blend mode in Paint.NET only gives the absolute difference, so I lose information about whether the pixel from the top layer was brighter than the pixel from the bottom, or the other way around.

Difference blend mode: C(x,y,channel) = |A(x,y,channel) - B(x,y,channel)|

Signed difference: C(x,y,channel) = [A(x,y,channel) - B(x,y,channel)] / 2 + 127.5

Technically this can be done with built-in blend modes, Invert Colors, and Levels. But it's a ten-step process :(

Could you potentially add this to BlendModes Plus? I'd be grateful! I can upload an example of the intended effect later, if you need one.

Segment Image : Average Color (HSL) : Eigen Blur : []

Cool, new forum!
