midora Posted July 20, 2014 Share Posted July 20, 2014 ::PluginIndex::Effect::Color Harmonies::0.7::2014-07-25::Martin Osieka::Select set of harmonic colors or pick single color:: The 'Color Harmonies' plugin allows to choose a single base color or a harmonic set of colors derived from a base color. Download Find the latest version Color Harmonies v0.7 (25.7.2014) >> ColorHarmoniesv0.7.zip << Installation - Copy the two files OptionBasedLibrary vX.X.dll/.dlc to the Paint.NET\ folder (NOT to Paint.NET\Effects\ !!!) - Copy the two files ColorHarmonies.Effect.dll/.dlc to the Paint.NET\Effects\ folder - Do not remove older versions of the OptionBasedLibrary if they are required from other plugins. - But do remove older version of the ColorHarmonies effect if it used a different dll name. After a restart of Paint.NET you will find the plugin at Menu->Effects->Tools->Color Harmonies... (oder für deutsche Anwender unter Menu->Effekte->Werkzeuge->Farbharmonien... 😉 Compatibility Paint.NET 3.5.11 and 4.03 Supported languages English, Deutsch Keywords Color harmonies, Color picker, Color palette, Color set, Farbharmonien, Farbwähler, Farbpalette, Farbmenge Configuration options http://www.comsquare.ch/files/downloads/ColorHarmonies/ColorHarmonies.Effect.Dialog.jpg http://www.comsquare.ch/files/downloads/ColorHarmonies/ColorHarmonies.Effect.HSV-H.jpg Choose the type of harmonic colors on top of the dialog. Depending on this type the color area below will show some markers. The largest marker marks the base color. All other markers are derived from the base color marker. Below the color area there are the colors and hexadecimal rgb values of all the colors in the set. The leftmost color is the base color. This is the single entry you may edit. If 'Single Color' is choosen then a color picker symbol is right to the color box. Next are the boxes of the three possible color models (RGB, HSV, and HSL). Each box shows the values of the three channels building the color model. Selecting one of the channels by clicking the radi button changes the color area and the slider right to the color area. The slider allows to change the value of the selected channel. Right click to the color area shows a context menu. - Square or Wheel (or Square): Select which variant you like to use for the color area. - Full adaptive: If checked then the color area will be adjusted depending on the slider value. - Dark theme: Sets a dark dialog background On OK the base color will be copied to the clipboard and the set of colors will be stored as a palette file in your palette folder. The 'Colors' window of Paint.NET allows you to load the palette file. http://www.comsquare.ch/files/downloads/ColorHarmonies/ColorHarmonies.Effect.PDN Colors window.jpg http://www.comsquare.ch/files/downloads/ColorHarmonies/ColorHarmonies.Effect.PDN Colors RGB input.jpg Remark: The selected base color will not be your primary color automatically. If you like to use it then you have to paste the value in the box below of the RGB values in the expanded 'Colors' window. If you are used to the Windows build-in color selector then you may select the L channel of the HSL model. Then select 'Square' in the context menu of the color area. You will get the following view: http://www.comsquare.ch/files/downloads/ColorHarmonies/ColorHarmonies.Effect.HSL-L.jpg Color models http://www.comsquare.ch/files/downloads/ColorHarmonies/RgbCube-FrontSide.jpg http://www.comsquare.ch/files/downloads/ColorHarmonies/RgbCube-BackSide.jpg http://www.comsquare.ch/files/downloads/ColorHarmonies/RgbCubeAsHexagon.jpg Issues depending on the Paint.NET plugin API - It is not possible to request the localized name of the palette folder via the API. Because of this the subfolder name is stored in the .dlc file of the effect. If you are using a different language setting than English or Deutsch then the complete .dlc file must be translated to your language and environment .History 0.7 (25.7.2014) see download link above - rotated the color wheels so that the warm colors (red..yellow) are on top and the cold colors (cyan..blue) are on bottom - if the palette subfolder does not exist then the palette will be stored in the localized Paint.NET user folder - if 'Single color' is selected on OK then no palette file will be created. - Added 'Screen Color Picker' to 'Single Color' mode. Clicking the button activates the color picker. The picking interval is 200ms. Mouse click or any keypress stops picking the color (Escape restores the previous color). Remark: Outside of the application the cursor does not show the picker symbol but is still working. No idea in the moment how to fix this. 0.6 (20.07.2014) - First public release 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
