Tutorials for creating a pdn file


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I want to create a Paint.net file (pdn) outside of Paint.net and create 3 layers, then draw on them separately.

 

Can anyone link me tutorials and hints to do this in Visual Studio? I don't know which class to use to create the actual file outside of paint.net in my own winforms application.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Paint.NET's license does not permit using its DLLs in your application. This is absolutely prohibited. You may not do this.

Ok, well I have not actually used the dll's. Is there a non-psd file format that I can create layers in, so that when the file is opened paint.net will recognize the layers?

 

Or is it ok to create my own file format and then, in turn create a paint.net add in that would read the file and create a layered drawing? I don't believe that would violate the license agreement. Is this possible? I'm only trying to create a 3 layer file for use with an effect add in, so the user doesn't have to create the layers themselves.I can do it inside paint.net addins, assuming I can hook to an event and modify the file from within paint.net under a plug-in.
