Magnifier (Lens+) (ymd:100726)

Recommended Posts

Magnifier Effect Plugin

 

What's this?

This plugin is added to the menu Effects, submenu Distort.

It is a evolution of the Ed Harvey's Lens. I had a discussion with him about it to have his agreement to publish my version.

The improvements are :

- offset: to move the center.

- independant slider for vertical/horizontal radius.

- range from -200 up to 400.

- anti aliasing

 

Download it!

Plugin Magnifier.dll

The MadJik's All plugins package is available !

How to install

Close Paint.net

Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects

 

The User interface

...Choose the amount (negative values will flip the image).

...Choose the radius for X & Y.

...Move the center using the offset.

...Select the quality. The antialiasing is working on the selection area. To avoid to blur the whole picture first create a selection...

 

Some examples:

Working really hard for that GE award this year, eh, MadJik? Man, you keep outdoing yourself, and this is definitely going into my Plug-in Directory. What will you think up next?

Now, with Magnifier and Perlin Texture working in tandem.... :mrgreen:

I would love the option to automatically delecte everything that is not 'magnified' when clicking OK. I love using this to make planets (somehow Shape3D makes it looks like a plastic ball everytime), but having to manually delete the surrounding 'rest' is a pain in the neck :( (also the AA is useless then :/)

@Eli Could you retry please, I see a version problem in the zip files. Doing too much things at the same time...

@AndrewDavid Yes, certainly because I've just updated the zip file... Thank you for the test.
