Align Object Plugin - Updated 06/17/2007

Recommended Posts

Appreciate your reply Ego Eram Reputo, But unfortunately this plugin doesn't suit the tutorial, because the tutorial is very simple, I really didn't have this plugin in the previous KrisVDM package, but I updated it last night after reading your reply and got it in my list, so thanks you very much sir, and thank you KrisVDM you too for the great plugins and for keeping them up to date.

Does it work with Paint.NET 3.5.10? I tried:

 

Edit -> Erase All, Erase Selection, Paste in to New Layer
 
Effects -> Align Object...
 
Nothing happens, none of these alignments work.

Ok, it worked but I had to uncheck Background Layer first.Thanks! There would be more logic if a plugin knew what to move by selecting a layer. It works this way in PaintShop Pro.

Plugins can only work on the active layer. This is the case for all plugins.

This particular plugin can only work if the object is on an otherwise transparent layer. The plugin needs to be able to find the edges between the object and the transparent pixels.

The reason the plugin did not work for you previously was that you had a selection active which confined the 'alignment' to within the selection.

In future, to align an object (object - group of colored pixels in a transparent layer) ensure there is no selection active then simply click on the layer and run the plugin.

I am new to this forum...I am trying to center an image (348x358) on a canvas size of  (620x348).

 

I am trying to use this align plug in, but when I click on the center horizontal button, or any button for that matter, absolutely nothing happens...

 

The first thing I did was open new document (for the lack of a better word), change the canvas size to above.  Then go to Layers, Import from File, Effects, choose Align Object, click on Center (I've tried clicking on "center" and "middle center") nothing happens...

 

What am I doing wrong...it has got to be me!

How do you install it, which folder do the files go into; Effects or FileTypes?! I put it in Effects. Also once i've installed it, how do i access the buttons?! I've tried unblocking *all* the files individually, but even though they're not blocked, it still doesn't show in my effects drop down menu.

It goes into /Effects/  Restart paint.net after you've moved the dll into place.

 

Once installed you'll find this effect directly in the Effects menu (not in a sub-menu).

Unzip the DLL file and move it into your paint.net/effects/ folder. Then restart paint.net.

 

Yes there is a problem with the images.

I don't unzip the DLL zip file. I just open it in the Download folder, copy the DLL file, and paste it into the Effects folder. Always seems to work for me.

Can someone confirm if the download is working at the moment?

 

Yes, it works. You need to click the very last link in the first post.

Thanks, It was downloading the file with no extension so I added .zip to the end then I could extract the .dll.

Cheers

I'll try reuploading the zip file to see if it fixes the problem.

 

EDIT: That seems to have fixed the name problem.

(Any archive extractor worth its salt will allow you to open or extract an archive with or without an extension, regardless of the extension's contents or lack thereof!)

 

Happy to hear that reuploading fixed the problem with the name; thanks for your hard work! So many people who never say anything appreciate what you do more than you know! Thanks from all of us!

 

Hurm. Looking at both my post count and date of joining causes me to ponder.

 

OT: When did the paint.net forum's format and/or hosting provider change, requiring users to sign up for new accounts? I seem to recall that happening, but I definitely remember those types of upheavals on other forums, so I might merely confusing this forum with another.

 

Query: Can someone with a more intimate knowledge of the history of the paint.net forum than the one I remember please tell me whether that occurred here at some point and relate some details? Rick? BoltBait? others? Thank you very much in advance!

Yes, I've noticed that too. It's off by like two pixels, if I remember correctly.

The migration happened in April 2010. Existing accounts (with posts) were also migrated; there was no need to sign up again. Maybe you signed up for a new account anyway?

Thank you!

 

Yes; it's likely that I was unable to remember or find my original username/password or the recovery data was borked in some manner, perhaps using an email address to which I no longer had access. ...or my data was backed up on a floppy disk or other medium I was no longer able to read. OR I had no posts with my old account (unlikely but possible), which would have caused it to be purged it as part of the migration from phpBB to IPB, forcing me to create a new account along with the other members who wanted to be part of the community and had accounts but no posts prior to the migration purge.
