Applying Paint.net function using a command line


Recommended Posts

Paint.NET cannot be controlled using the command line like that.

Also, version 3.31 is EXTREMELY old. Get the latest version already! Seriously, why people don't install updates is so far beyond me that it completely blows my mind into itty bitty pieces that even a microscope can't find.

O.K. I installed the latest version 3.5.5. Now can you please help me with the command line issue?

Thanks! But, like I also said:

Sorry, but this functionality simply doesn't exist.

Why paint.net can't be started from RUN or command-prompt ???

Isn't it a good idea to start it from RUN box.

paint.net starts from run & command promt just fine, you just can't control what it does with command line arguments.

If someone absolutely needs to automate Paint.Net processing, it's possible to use AutoIT v3 (google for it). I've done some insane things with it. It lets you automate mouse/keyboard interaction with a Windows program (file open, apply different effects, save, close... file open... etc.).

There are command line tools like ImageMagic and GD. Also IrfanView has some batch capability and plug ins that might do something that could replace a desired function within Paint.Net.

But, really, after you learn how to use AutoIT... you can do automate anything in Paint.Net. And, the nice thing is, once you make that investment to learn it, you can use it with other Windows GUI applications. You'd be surprised how often that comes in handy.

I'm sure if someone was really into it, they could write a front-end application to simplify various automated tasks (like batch "sharpen"). Then it could be a distributable tool.
