Right now I'm having an issue where the horizontal seam carving is working just fine, but when I try to use the vertical carving the plugin crashes and throws this error:

File: C:\Program Files\paint.net\Effects\SeamCarving.dll
      Name: SeamCarvingEffect.SeamCarvingEffectPlugin

The log suggests memory corruption as a possible cause, so I ran memtest64 and it didn't pick up any errors. One thing that's interesting is the path: "D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\Effects\"- PDN is installed to C:\Program Files\Paint.net and I don't have a D:\ drive.

Yeah, sorry. 


I've been super busy and haven't had time to fix the error.


Give me a few days and I'll see what I can do.

I had paint.net 4.0.12


Upgrade to the latest version of paint.net as a first step. Then tell us if the problem persists.

I have Paint.net 4.0.21, running on Windows Pro (64 bit) SP1 operating system. I  just installed your Plug In Pack  4.7.6565.29427. I followed your clear instructions, and installed all of the Plug ins. Everything seemed to go smoothly. And the Help screens seem very good.


I was really interested in your Effects->Fill plugins. I really like the option of being able to Fill from a File via Browsing. I find that much easier/quicker than the traditional Fill from Clipboard.


But I think there is a problem with both of these plugins. The Zoom feature is REVERSED! Look at the attachment. The top screen ('Fill from Clipboard') shows the image I filled placed in the left upper corner. The Zoom is set to 1.0.


Now look  at the  2nd screen. Here Zoom is set to 0.301. But the image is LARGER. In  the third screen, the Zoom is set to 2.775, and the image is smaller!


In the last screen I used 'Fill from File'. The same problem exists, as shown my having to set the Zoom to 0.374 to get a larger than standard image.


Would you please check and see if you can confirm this problem?

Do you have a link with just the .dlls? My new windows 10 computer wont work with any of the plugin packs that use installers, but manually putting in the .dlls works just fine. I've included a screenshot of what happens, and when I click skip it just doesn't work.

BoltBait's installer should work with either Classic or Store versions.


Did you see this tip from the first post??

Windows Store version of paint.net: When prompted, select the "My Documents\paint.net App Files\Effects" folder.

A HUGE thanks to BoltBaits for this fantastic Plug-in Pack - it has given me the ability to do something I have tried in vain to do for years with a multitude of apps/programs and that is to superimpose cropped images (mainly figures) onto a background image WITHOUT the accursed white halo around the cropped image - I think I'm onto my 5th wig with the amount of hair I've pulled out of my head in frustration over the years - but I no longer face that issue from today!!! #OhHappyDay

The Feather Tool is absolutely AMAZING, or rather the Old Feather Tool is AMAZING x2, nay, make that x20! I have searched everywhere and anywhere for a feather tool that would work exactly as I require it to work but have always been left with the faintest of halos that may as well have been neon lights in the edited and finalised image, for all the good the tools I have used have been.... But now I have crisp clean edges that look superb compared to how my images have previously ended up.

I loved working with paint.NET on my laptop prior to finding this outstanding resolution to my frustration but I now have a newer, warmer fuzzy feeling inside knowing that my angst has been quelled once and forever! #JoyOfJoys

Again, a mahoosive thank you to BoltBait for his superb pack. I now look forward to diving into the various options the pack has given me to work with, but even if I was never to use another of the plug-ins, the Feather/Old Feather tool working SOOOOO fantastically for me means I am forever a #HappyBunny  indeed!!! ??? ??? ???
