Gradient Mapping

Thank you @NN, @BB and @Pyro for your assistance :pizza::beer::cake: .

 

I gave up, after hours of trying to 'weed-out' plugins to make sure they were current, and took @BB's advice and  deleted the whole lot!  I now have 3 plugins:

Gradient Mapping, Liquify and Smudge.  Happily Gradient Mapping is now working.  I will watch what I add now, like a hawk, and hope the problem does not re-occur.

 

So in effect, I'm kind of naked now in the Effects folder emoticon-cute-002.gif

OK - it's Imgur Uploader that is making Gradient Mapping go awry.  As soon as I inserted it into Effects, it causes the same problem to happen.  Do I need to post this  in the Imgur Uploader thread?  I have checked and have used his latest version.  Strange thing is that it's still working fine on my lap top :roll: .  This is so frustrating as I use Imgur Upload a lot and also Gradient Mapping.  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr :/

Imgur Uploader was recently updated. Did you download the newest version?

Yes @EER - am using the recent version and it's working - only thing is, on my HP computer, it's clashing with Gradient Mapping.  Not so on my laptop which is not HP :roll:

 

 

Thanks @Pyro - I tried it and it works fine without Imgur.  Once Imgur is added to the Effects folder, it crashes again.  But, Imgur is working fine and I actually used it to show you

the crash below.

Hello @pyrochild I have noticed that since v4.1.5 the Gradient Mapping is acting differently.

 

This is with v4.1.5:

And now it no longer keeps the Preserve Alpha box checked:

@Pixey, take a look at the xml file of your preset (in any text editor). In the line

<Gradient xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" ... Offset="0" Wrap="true" LockAlpha="false">

replace LockAlpha="false" to LockAlpha="true"  and save this file.

Hi @ReMake thanks for your response.  I can't figure out how to "open" the .cs file.  I've gone to:

 

This PC -  Documents - Paint.net User Files - Effect Presets - Gradient Mapping - but all that's in there are the .xml's themselves 😲

I finally figured out how to open one of them 🤗 but I don't see the part where I can change it to LockAlpha="true"   All I see is this:

Replace line:

<Gradient xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

with line:

<Gradient xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" LockAlpha="true">

Note the space between the quotes and LockAlpha - it must be present.
