Fill From File & Fill From Clipboard - for 3.5.11+ - Updated June 22, 2014

Recommended Posts

*NEW* Fill From File and Fill From Clipboard Plugins

I rebuilt my new 4.0 plugins for the Fill menu against 3.5.11 so that people that don't upgrade to 4.0 will not miss out on all the fun.

These plugins work as you might expect:

Fill From Clipboard

If there is an image on the clipboard (like after you've pressed the PrtScn key on your keyboard), use Effects > Fill > From Clipboard to tile that image into your current selection. If there is no graphic on the clipboard, you'll just get your original image unchanged.

Fill From File

If the image you wish to tile is instead in a file on your computer, use Effects > Fill > From File to tile it from your image file into your current selection. You can enter the path of the image in the text box or press the "Browse" button to select your image from a standard "file open" dialog box.

 

For Paint.NET v3.5x Download here:

FillFrom40.zip

$

If you are using Paint.NET 4.0 or beyond, download here: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/32048-v

Install the normal way. Once installed, look under:

Effects > Fill > ClipboardIcon.png From Clipboard

Effects > Fill > OpenIcon.png From File...

FillFromUI.png

Enjoy!  :D  :beer:

Hello and thank you for this tool. It's great for creating tiled backgrounds. May I make a couple of requests?

 

1. Is it possible to add a feature that will allow the user to start the tiling from the middle of the layer so that the edges will be symetrical at the edges (the top and bottom edges as well as the left and right edges)?

 

2. Is it possible to add a feature that will allow the user to control  the size of the picture being tiled or how many times the picture will be tiled on the layer?

Thank you! The new features allowed me to create this frame by moving around and resizing the flower picture:

 1. Created a tile with Fill from File plugin( used a square image).

 2. Deleted the inner section and added volume with Bevel and Drop Shadow plugins.

 

You did it so fast that I am not ready yet for my next request :)

I used the tiling capabilities of the plugin to create this frame. I started with an image to create a tile on two layers and with some duplication, flipping and cropping I ended up with this frame. It looks good to me. I thing that with your knowhow, you are very close to creating a new pluging for paint.net, a "Frame generator". Thanks again.

I just fixed a bug in the 4.0 version of this plugin.

3.5 users, it's time to upgrade! ;)

it says "If you are using Paint.NET 4.0 or beyond, download here: http://forums.getpai...p?/topic/28488-" but when i go there and search for 'Fill from' plugin, then press "+" it goes back to http://forums.getpai...p?/topic/28556- - making an infinite loop with no download  :P "FillFrom...dll" files in the pack and in the relative theme are different

 

it's weird in how it fills with things:

i would expect a perfect/equal filling with these: post-130576-0-25189200-1416718657_thumb. (it has a white border)

but i'm getting this type of shape: post-130576-0-00636300-1416718662_thumb.

Gendalf, the placement and zoom features are nice in this plugin. I get my square image with no problems using whole numbers (1, 2, 3, etc). The problem arises when zooming with decimal values. The squares tend to blend and, in your case, the white border disapears. Mister BoltBait will probably address this issue.
