Macros - Can I automate procedures?


Recommended Posts

I've used Paint.Net for about a year and found it excellent.

I use the same procedure on most, if not all, of my original photos (fake HDR):

- make 2 copies of the original

- MULTIPLY the top layer

- OVERLAY the middle one

- staying on the same layer, select BLACK and WHITE, then INVERT COLOURS

- again on the same layer choose GAUSSIAN BLUR (about value 25)

Then FLATTEN the 3 layers and fiddle about with the final photo until it is right

This 8 stage procedure is tedious. Can I do all this with one button press, by writing a short macro?

This part can be automated with the ScriptLab plugin and the BlendModes Plus plugin.
