by the way.. if i may ask, how can i request plugins in here?

Just post a request in the General Discussion forum. That's no guarantee that a plugin will be written for you. But, if the idea is solid and "do-able" then I'm sure someone will take a shot at it.

Ok! I'm kinda upset, why is it not working for me? I got Vista, is that a problem? I moved the dll's for feather , light rays , jitter to the effects folder - C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects and nothing. i restarted PdN several times, restarted computer. Nothing. It is not in blur or adjustments , in fact all three are nowhere to be found under the menu buttons. Files are not "blocked". All permissions are set for system and administrator as well. Which is who i am since its my computer... So whats the deal !!!!?????

(I use Vista. They work fine here)

Feather is in Effects > Blurs > Feather

Light Rays - Effects > Render > Light Rays

Jitter - Effects > Distort > Jitter

things to check:

you are using the latest version of Paint.NET:

3.08 or 3.10BETA

files are extracted from their ZIPs

feather is shipped as a dll, but light rays and jitter are both zipped.

make sure they downloaded and extracted properly.

-right click, properties, make sure the sizes are reasonable. around 6-8 KB for feather and jitter, around 20+ for light rays.

make sure Paint.NET is in fact installed to C:/Program Files/Paint.NET

Okay, I'm really having trouble downloading plugins (I'm obviously new). IDK what I'm doing wrong, so help would be appreciated =]

Here's everything I'm doing (I'm downloading the Gradient Plugin) -

1)pdnea6.th.png

2)pdn2rb1.th.png

3)pdn3qb8.th.png

4)pdn4rl7.th.png

5)pdn5yt7.th.png

6)pdn7jk9.th.png

After doing that, nothing shows up in Effects (I've checked all the subs) or Adjustments. I know some previous people have been saying something about unblocking, but when I got to properties there's no 'unblock' option so I don't think that's the problem. Oh, and while I was doing all that ^^ PDN wasn't opened.

Help anyone??
