Illnab1024 Posted September 23, 2006 Share Posted September 23, 2006 (edited) MODERATORS NOTE: This effect may have issues with newer versions of Paint.NET. An alternative plugin, called Apply Alpha Mask, is available here: https://forums.getpaint.net/BoltBaitPluginPack Alpha Mask -- 2.0 AlphaMask.zip Version 2.0 adds the ability to use whatever image is on your clipboard. The supported image types at the moment is kinda sketchy, but the kicker is it works for stuff copied inside Paint.NET, which is 99% of this plugin's use, anyway. This plugin allows you to import an image from a file or the clipboard and make it an alpha mask. If the image has color, it will be converted to greyscale. Clipboard idea courtesy BoltBait. Source Download, 2 years later AlphaMaskImport - Source Code Old description / links: Spoiler Okay. Here is a temporary solution until the real thing arrives. This allows you to import an image from a file and make it an alpha mask. If the image has color, it will be converted to greyscale. The file import is based from pleska's Photo Flood Fill Plugin. Tell me if the link breaks. Please do not criticize the fact that you have to save an image; the Effects API cannot handle layer information. Thus, this is the easiest way. I hope you all enjoy this. EDIT: Released v1.1. I couldn't find a time to handle the OoM exception before PdN saw it. I will look more into it. Sorry for the wait, it has been a busy week. EDIT2: Release v1.2: Option to mix alpha added. Old 1.2 Links. Look at top for current DLL.
