Follow the instructions carefully

  • Unzip "ChopUp.Effect"
  • Copy the two files OptionBasedLibrary vX.X.dll/.dlc to the Paint.NET\ folder (NOT to Paint.NET\Effects\ !!!) A typical location is "C:\Program Files\Paint.NET".
  • Copy the two files 'ChopUp.dll/dlc' to the Paint.NET\Effects\ folder. A typical location is "C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects".

  • Do not remove older versions of the OptionBasedLibrary if they are required from other plugins.      

After a restart of Paint.NET you will find the plugin under Menu->Effects->Tools.
