Absoloutely Brilliant! B)

I couldn't see a .dll either - so compiled from the source code.
This will be extremely useful!

Thank you!
- I've been wanting something like this for ages! So thank you to 'cajos' too. :beer:

 

edit - my 1000th post! :D

Hi TR,
 
Its great plugin. It will be definitely the one of the most used plugin.

Thank you. Now I can make a "Where is Waldo?" game.

A couple of requests:

1. an option to add a drop shadow (just to give an impression of depth).

2. An option to keep the scattered image inside the edges of the main page or a selected area.

The plugin uses selections to mask the image. 

 

 

 

1. an option to add a drop shadow (just to give an impression of depth).

That would be a big rewrite. right now it's random sizes. In order to include visual cues for depth, I would have to render small to large, offset silhouette first. I'll play around with it,but no promises.

 

BTW. I found Waldo.

Thank you and I'm sorry but I've forgotten, what was the request?

Don't mind if you do not remember. I had sent you a plug-in request in a PM ages ago. (long before i introduced myself in forum) I had thought that this plugin would be more complex than other plugins, so it might take much time to complete. If that happened, I didn't wanted that anyone had who got interested in request and had to wait long. So, i didn't requested in forum making a new topic. I will send you another mail asking for that. If possible, please look into that. :)  . Anyway, thanks for all your efforts. I like them very much. :D

Re Drop shadows.
Include a semi-transparent shadow in your original image eg.

Creates a reasonable depth effect.

Request:
Is there any chance of limiting the amount of random rotation with a slider, 0 to 360?
If awkward don't worry - it could be very useful if possible though. Thanks for considering.
Great plugin! B)

I thought about Red ochre's solution for the drop shadow and yes it gives the impression of depth. However, the shadow looks like it came from multiple light sources not one. 

I also think that an option to control rotation would be a good idea.

For my second request I meant to have an option to keep, for example, in this image, all the mapple leaves inside a selection without being cropped at the edges of the selected area.

Thanks for the Rep.

Red and Eli, 


Nice work around but I got it covered.


One important note - I did not take in to account the Z-order of the objects - smaller objects do not get occluded by larger ones.


Shadows are easy. Z-Order would be the big re-write.  Z-order can be accomplished by multiple layers.

Thanks Pixey! Hi Nemo.


 


V1.2 is available


After seeing how the artists are using this tool I added more rotation control and better randomization

Control over rotation makes this even more useful!
Many thanks! :star:
(thanks for the updated source code too - I can change the default folder path. I may even change the name/menu to move it nearer the top of the list - it will be used a lot! ;))
