i already 'unblock' as per instructions listed on page 7 of How to Install Paint.Net plugins....♫...just a thought - i upgraded this comp. about a month ago & curly lines is the 1st plugin i have tried since, i notice that it is being downloaded as 'caroline/pc/user' - i am the administrator on this - would that have anything to do with it???  i promise this is the last question i will ask on this - if it is not solvable i wll take it to my computer guy.   many thank for your patience....

Start at the beginning.

 

1. Download a fresh copy of the plugin.  Get it from here: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/25591-curly-lines-plugin-updated-to-v11a-19th-nov-2012/

 

2. Locate the Zipped file you downloaded and unzip it.  If necessary, you may need to unblock it.

 

3. Copy the unzipped file CurlyLines.dll into your Paint.NET/Effects folder.

 

4. Restart Paint.NET.

 

5. Look in the Effects > Render menu for the plugin.

Under your own posts, there is an "edit" button. If you just need to add to your previous post, use that instead of adding a new post. Thanks!

thank you so much - no luck - i actually tried to install a program i already had fromPaint.Net & it would not allow me to open it either ...so i am very reluctant to blame a machine for my own incompetence - but i do believe there is somethng very wrong when you are denied access to something you already have installed & using - i will take it back & find out 'what's gone wrong'.....i am so vey grateful to you all...♥

Take a screenshot of your Paint.NET/Effects folder showing as many files as possible.  Upload it to an image hosting site and post the link here.

I would love to learn how to make things like the one in the tutorials. When I downloaded them from what I read in the chat, it would not work. So far I love this site and its my first time being on here. so far I have learn so much from this but there are some plugins like i said before, i have trouble to get those.

Hey Star32!  Welcome :grin:

 

You should be fine downloading the plugins from the Plugins section of this forum.  Despite their apparent age, the plugins you mentioned are the most recent versions available.

 

To find more information, check out the Plugin Index (link in my signature).  In the Index I list the original Release Date and the Plugin Status - look for ones that are flagged as Active.

Keep in mind- though many of the plugins were first posted years ago and thus SEEM to be old, most are updated frequently and can be rather new despite their apparent age.

Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Could you post a screen shot of your Paint.NET/Effects folder?

@Crimden: Yes, but that's a very incomplete list.  ;-)  That's why we have the full list of directions, you see.

Hi all,

 

Elderly first-post computer idiot here...hope I'm posting in the right place.

 

Loving using Paint.net for post-processing my scanned 35mm negatives. Also admiring the v helpful community you have here. No, really ; )

 

There are just a couple of tools I want that only come as plugins. Like this one: <No>

 

1) Does it still exist?

 

2) If yes - can I get it without installing a whole other bunch of effects I really don't need/want, ie by itself?

 

3) If no - anyone know of another, similar plugin? (I've looked and looked and can only find that one so far)

OK folks, I found it! Or one pretty much like it:

 

Camera Lens Distortion

 

If anyone knows of an alternative, perhaps better, lens-distortion-correction p-i, please say. But this one seems to work fine.

 

 

PS. I know there's a tool like this originating in Korea (linked elsewhere in Paint), but when I downloaded and installed it (it moved itself to 'render' in the effets sub-menu) it opened in a separate window and sat there - didn't link to my image at all (?!))

 

PPS. You guys probably know this already, but DrewDale

kindly warned me to beware of the site I linked in my first post - illegal and unsafe. My apologies.

I've edited your last few posts to

A. Remove the link to software pirates, and ..

B. Correctly link to the forum thread for Camera Lens Distortion.

All reputable Paint.NET plugins are released via this forum. Either get them from here, or from links posted here. DO NOT TRUST PLUGINS FROM ANYWHERE ELSE. Please - it's for your own good. The link you initially provided is operated by software pirates. They have been proven to bundle viruses with the plugin pack.

To locate plugins by name or author, or to download the free listings (updated monthly) - see this thread Plugin Index

I've updated the first post in this thread to include your warning and my response steps, EER.  Hopefully more people will see it now (and it can be a good link for us to use).
