Plugin request - a variation of the pixel counter plugin

Recommended Posts

I figured out the reason for all the 0 pages......I needed to increase the resolution back to 100 after resizing in order to remove stray light colored pixels.  I will mark up and fold the book and see how it goes.  Thanks so much!

one last thing....if it isnt too much to ask.  Could the pages increase by 2 always starting with an odd number since that is how it is in a book? Thanks again.....this new plugin is already making it soooo much easier than the original pixelcounter :)

It wouldnt let me attach the csv file to show you.

You have to Zip it first -  

 

Right-Click on file

Click on Send to ....

Select "Compressed (zipped) Folder"

Can it have one more adjustment? It's a bit tricky with the inches......could it be centimeters and only to one decimal point....like 6.5, etc? The book is marking and folding awesome. I'll post a photo when I have it completed :)

I dont know whats up with the new revised version but after running it on the exact same image I used before that worked in inches this new output has the start measurement good but no end measurements.....just gives 0.0.  When I ran it I entered 20 cm as my book height in cm.  I am sorry to be a bother :(

On a topic similar to this one, know that I know you write code do you also write programs?  I am looking for someone who can write a computer program for creating book folding patterns.  The only downloadable programs out there currently do not involve cutting to achieve more than one fold per page.  I like more options and detail which is why I was thrilled that you could do the plugin for paintnet.  If you don't do programs do you know of someone who would freelance?  Thanks!

 Seriously though, do you take tips or should I just go make a contribution on the home page?

If you like PDN - support PDN, I have.

 

 If you don't do programs do you know of someone who would freelance? 

 

I'm not into writing commercial programs.  But if someone else is interested the code is in this post http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/32362-plugin-request-a-variation-of-the-pixel-counter-plugin/?p=431949. All they have to do is create a ui and the installer.

I am unsure as to where I should post this, but I am starting here. I have tried to add the "pixel counter 2" plug in with no results. I have followed the step by step instructions and still no luck.  However, the instructions and what my computer did were a bit different. I have tried absolutely everything I know to do.  I got paint.net with no problems at all and am loving it, but need the pixel counter 2 for making book folding patterns. I have an HP computer with Windows 8.1 with 64 bit operating system. If I have posted this to the wrong place, I apologize. Steer me in the right direction, and I will gladly go there. Thank you in advance for any assistance you are able to give me.

Look in the post above yours....click on the link and there you will find the pixelcounter2.zip file you need. Once downloaded you will need to extract the files which will give you the dll file. This needs to be dragged into the effects folder writhing the paintnet folder.

Thank you heathersharmony, it actually was your video I watched in YouTube to install this, however, it did not work, as well, there were instructions on this forum that I followed that did not work. I was just curious if I was the only one having problems or if anyone had a tip.

I just wanted to give an update, I finally GOT pixel counter 2, woo hoo, after days of trying, lol. I had to turn off windows smartscreen and it finally went to my effects like it was supposed to. Thank you heathersharmony for your help with this.

TechnoRobbo you and Heather are my heros! Thank you so much for collaborating. I do have a question if you don't mind. On occasion I need to adjust the starting page number. Is there a way to do this in excel once the pattern has been created?

serramagk .....I'm not well versed in excel but I think you can click on the column heading of the page numbers to renumber them. We have a few Facebook groups of book folding where others who know more can help. One is Bookfolding Craft Cafe and the other is mine Book Folding USA.
