Help with locating plugins

Recommended Posts

Can someone make me a road map? I have downloaded the plugin index and found the plugin that I want within the index but now what? For example, the plugin is titled 'align object', the topic number is 4193 (what's this?), the author is moc426, and a description. So armed with this information I do what?

Go to the Plugins page & click on Plugins Index which should give you the choice of searching for plugins by name or by author . Click on show Hidden Content. Click on Align Object - moc426.

Download the Zip file at the bottom of the post (Zip File). Inn the plugins thread there is instructions on how to install the plugins. You must install them not just download them.

I hope this helps.

Sounds like you've downloaded the PDF file. This is intended as a lookup reference to what is available in the world of paint.net plugins.

1. Use the forum Plugin Index to locate the thread for the plugin you want (the name of the plugins are clickable - so should take you right to the thread).

2. From the correct thread, locate the link to the ZIP file (usually in the first post). Occasionally there is a link to an offsite URL where the plugin can be found.

3. Download the file.

Now you need to unzip it and move it to the right location. This thread might help

Alternatively (and possibly clearer because of more detail) is this page on BoltBait's site: https://boltbait.com/pdn/InstallingEffects.php
