Outline Object

Recommended Posts

Hi Pyro! Nice job with the new plugin. Missed your character on the last update. I have a question: I have noticed when using the outline plugin that it doesn't always evenly outline the item that is being outlined. Is there a setting I need to adjust, or is it just to be expected?

Cool.

Now, I just need to update my plugins.

Yes, at the moment the outline effect is a bit lonely. :)

Give me a day or two. I'll fill it up.

That's probably because the object you're outlining has some thin parts, in which case you'll just need to turn down softness.

Thanks! I realized this new update works better for me. I played with the settings with the last version, and the softness and width adjustments seemed to be the same, not giving me the result this one does. Keep up the good work! Happy Holidays!

Can anyone point me to the download? I tried it several times, but I can't find the updated files. :oops:

I think BoltBait lied... ;)

The problem is...

I don't want to simply recompile Feather under the new menu. I want to rewrite it. I just haven't found the time. :(

Soon, though. I PROMISE!

Excellent tool.

I had a complex image that I needed to surround with color so I could use it as a mask over another layer. But it leaked when I used the paintbucket, and color flooded the whole image. So I outlined it with the mask color, hit paintbucket again, and voila!! No leaks!

Bugged on me. When I typed in Help, it outlined the object in black. I pressed enter after the help page loaded up and it stayed there. It's a minor bug, but still pretty weird. :o

How is that a bug? "Help" is not a color, so what else is it supposed to do? Outline in magenta?

:roll:

I actually dislike this whole typing stuff.

Well it defaults to your primary color, so if you set that first, you don't have to type anything...

Then was there any point in adding the typing stuff in?

Would you rather have to close the plugin, tweak the color, go back into the effects menu and run the plugin again, on those occasions when you don't know exactly what color you want to use?

Wow! Not to sound rude, but this plugin seemed pretty straightforward to me. You type in the color you like, which doesn't require you figuring the color code, and outline. I guess I've sold myself short again :lol:

Because that's the default for Paint.NET's ColorBgra class. I don't see what the big deal here is. If you enter something that's not a color, obviously, the plugin has to use some sort of default. You sure complain a lot about something that has been given to you, completely free of charge. Sure, you can let me know about bugs. But this is not a bug, nor is it an annoyance. This is a completely trivial matter that you, for reasons unknown to me, continue to argue about.

Plugins can't read your mind; if you want it to use a specific color, tell it what color to use.

You say you entered "help" in the box, and then hit Enter. Why would you do that? That's like filling out a job application, only instead of putting your last name, you put the quadratic formula, and submit that. It's incomplete. Nobody is going to know what to do with it.

Indeed it is pretty straightforward. Apparently, too straightforward for some people... Some of them seem not to like how easy it is to change the color. They seem to prefer torturing themselves. Bloody masochists. Well, I'm glad that at least you seem to like it. :D

Actually....yes.

Because even still if you want to type in the hex code you'll have to close the plugin to find it, and then re-open it to put it in, unless you know the hex code colour chart.
