So I'm making a stop motion w/ paint.net

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I want to make a stop motion video with paint.net. When I take my pictures they're all slightly dark, so I need to adjust each one and save. Is there a way for me to mass edit lots of pictures at one time?


Right now I do the following to get my pictures edited and saved.

1) Drag and drop them all into the program.

2) Press Ctrl+Shift+C to edit the first picture, then it I press those hot keys for each picture in the set.

3) Once I'm done I close the program so the dialog box opens asking me if I want to save all my work. I click yes for each and every picture.


I find this a little time consuming because I have to Ctrl+Shift+C and OK each picture, which takes about 1 second. And I also have to wait for each picture's save dialog box to open so I can "OK" the save. If i'm doing 100 pictures, that's 200 seconds, or over 3 minutes. I'm assuming there's a way to mass edit pictures but I'm just missing it. Any help would be appreciated.

No, Paint.NET currently doesn't have batch processing features, sorry.


You might want to try out pyrochild's Scriptlab , which would mean you'd only have to hit Ctrl+F to accomplish all of the edits over and over.
