What's this?

Based on the original code from Boltbait for his Seamless Texture helper:

This plugin is added to the menu Effects, submenu Distort.

 

 

Download the DLL

Plugin SeamlessTextureMaker.dll

ar.pngHere is the DLLal.png

 

The MadJik's All plugins package is available !

How to install?

Close Paint.net

Unzip and place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects

 

 

The User interface

stm_UI.png

Choose the mode:

...Mirror on the axis (reduce): the image is duplicated and flipped.

...Copy and rotate (reduce): the image is duplicated and rotated.

...Normal+Cut: The image is duplicate and panelled half size and then blended with the original.

...Cut: The image is panelled half size. The center is going to the corners.

Choose the axis of symetry:

...You could decide to apply the effect on the proposed axis.

Flip the selection:

...With the mirror this option allows you to place the reduced image in a different order.

...With other modes, the duplicated image is flipped before the blending.

Transparent pixel is:

...transparent

...replaced by Black color

...replaced by White color

...replaced by Primary color

...replaced by Secondary color

...as original image

If there are some transparent pixel, you could choose to replace them...

Include transparent pixels

...The blend mode selected applies also to the alpha channel.

Hey ho ;) pyrochild, my sparkles are calculated from the settings.

This is now some examples of FXs:

Flare / Flake / Both - normal

Flare / Flake / Both - Inverted intensity

flareI.pngflakeI.pngflakeflareI.png

Flare / Flake / Both - internal radius >0

Nothing special. I drew an asterisk (with the cross spokes on different layers) and then played with various blurs and color balance/hue-sat till I got something I liked.

I think I also did some gradient fade outs. (Basically fading from the center out to black.) Just play around with pdn, and I'm sure you'll be able to come up with something similar fairly easily. :)

I miss this feature in paint shop pro. I quit using psp ever since corel bought it and ruined it, and photoshop doesn't have this feature. SO this is awesome :D I've been looking for something like this.

good job.

Hi Madjik,

I downloaded from the zipped file from the first page,

unzipped the file, sent the plugin to the effects folder, and confirmed its presence there as seamlesshelper.

Ran it on a picture but the plugin executed without any interface and therefore there was no user choice inputs available. Am I downloading the correct plugin or file?

Thanks for the help but I discovered that I've been looking for the plugin in the wrong place!

Searched desperately in the Effects drop down list, and in the Render section to no avail, and then discovered it in Effects-->Distort!

Thought it was on its own like the earlier seamless plugins.

Apologies for ignorance!

Wonder if this plugin should not really be located in the Render section of the Effects instead of the Distort section?

Also think that its location could be in the first posting instead of being found in an example in a subsequent posting.

I am not having any luck getting this to work.

I downloaded the .dll and placed it on the Effects folder of Paint.net. Is there something else I need to do?

Thanks

Hi, this is a really cool plugin. It seems to me that it would be one of the most handy plugins available IMO. I was wondering though it it was possible for it to do the following (And maybe there's a setting that I'm missing).

1) Have it expand the canvas size when it mirrors things. If it's 20 X 20, it would then be 40 X 40.

2) Is it possible to perform a half drop with this plugin? This would be TREMENDOUSLY helpful. I don't know if everyone knows what a half drop is, but it can be looked at like a 5 domino, where each dot is an image.

Thanks Again for a really cool plugin (Among others). :D
