Glad you like changes!

Pdnnoob, BBQ & yellowman - thanks
Seerose - Danke! <3

yellowman - It now tests if the start pixel is above the transparency threshold before doing most of the calculations.
This makes it much faster for object layers. It may also be slightly faster for whole layers due to tidying up the code too. It is actually doing a few more calculations to deal with transparency now.
Plus, I probably rushed the first version a bit, due to forum interest and I was excited about it too! :)

WB, NN, Helen & Dug - Thanks for the comments, glad you are having fun with it! :)

Both Furblur and Clipwarp would not exist if Null54 hadn't showed me how to set them up correctly in Visual Studio. The help is very appreciated!

Sasha - Pleased the extra speed helps!

Dug - Great image - no one else would put the 'daddy-long-legs' (crane fly) on the water lilly! - the circle of life - love it! and the furblur results look good. Good composition too.

doughty - kudzu - I had to look that up - glad you're exploring possible textures.

This is quite an amazing plugin. Red ocre, do you somewhere have a description of how it works? I'm interested in plugins that convert photos into imitation art, such as paintings, and I think the ideas used in this plugin might be useful for writing a plugin that imitates brush stokes.

Many thanks scryer52 - sorry for the late reply.

Hello MJW,
I had the same thought myself and am working on something based of this code but using the direction and magnitude of the tone gradient to draw the trail/blurs. Here are a couple of preliminary results.

The FurBlur code (Visual studio I'm afraid) is here:http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/27013-furblur-roi-random-problems/page-4 - last post has the current code.
Basically furblur selects a random point then moves out at an angle to draw a blurred line. As it loops out from that point it adds a tiny change to the angle each time, which gives a curve.

Thank you so much, Red ochre. Using the direction and magnitude of the tone gradient was exactly the approach I was contemplating. I was also thinking of limiting the extent of the stroke to pixels that matched within a given tolerance. I'm eager to look at the FurBlur code. I'm very familiar with programming with Visual Studio, just not yet for Paint.NET plugins. I think I'll have to bite the bullet and switch over from codelab. The example pictures of the preliminary results are quite intriguing.
