How to export from Photoshop original filters and import them into Paint.NET?


Recommended Posts

First, you need to download and install this plugin:

Once you have that, open up paint.net and select the plugin (Effects>8bf filter)

Go to the "search directories" tab and click on "Add..."

Browse for the folder containing the photoshop filters (In my case, My computer>C:>Program files>Adobe>Adobe Photoshop CS5>Plugins>Filters)

Press ok and return to your "Filters" tab. The filters you are looking for should now appear in the list.

pdnnoob, thank you!

Now... How can I group them to be like in Photoshop. So filter tips in Photoshop lessons I could use similarly in Paint.NET? (For example, filter>other>custom)

The plug-in only supports images up to 32000 pixels.

What if my picture is larger and I want to keap it that way?

Unfortunately, I haven't a clue how you would reorganize the filters.

Also, by 32000 pixels, null54 meant 32000x32000 (height and width). I can't imagine what use you would have for an image any larger than that. If you set an image that size to 300 dpi (standard print size), you would have a 153'x153' image (153 feet wide and tall)

Reorganizing... Someone, please help!

The filters are sorted alpabetically by category same as in Photoshop, instead of filters>other>custom you would use other>custom (or just type the name of the filter in the search box). :D

Additionally most of the filters included with Photoshop after 6.0 will not work with non-Adobe hosts.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait
