Flip Plugin (Horizontal or Vertical Flip of Selection)


Recommended Posts

MODERATORS NOTE:  this plugin has been superseded by a newer version; available in BoltBait's pack:




Due to the other Plugin's link being dead, BoltBait and I made a quick solution for Flipping a selection. This is unlike PdN's flip whereas it flips the whole image and crops to the selection, and this actually flips the selection.

DLL: FlipPlugin.dll

Source: FlipPluginSRC.zip

Could you add a third option:

1. Horizontal

2. Vertical

3. Both


===> I made this update from the provided sources files:

here is the DLL

Effect in the submenu "Effects/Distort"

To install:

Close Paint.net

Unzip and place the DLL in your Effect folder usualy: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects



here is the DLL for normal Effect menu

How do you use this plugin, when I use it, it says:

"You have Chosen to open


which is a: DLL file

From: http://www.getpaint.net

What should Firefox do w/ this file?

Open With Browse

Save File"

When I opt for either, Lets say Save, it says (after I open)


You are a file of type 'Application Extension' (.dll)

Blah Blah...

Open with Cancel

When I hit open w/, it says:

Windows cannot open this file...

To open this file, windows needs to know what program created it.

Windows can go online and look it up automatically, or you can manually select from a list of programs on your computer.

What do you want to do?

Use the Web to find the appropriate program

Select a program from a list


What does this mean?
