Not sure if this is a bug or if it's always been this way ?


Jitter - when you move the Minimum Distance slider up the Maximum Distance increases too, but when you move it down the Maximum doesn't move.

A video to explain it better ... 




apologies if it's meant to do this.  It's more worrying I've completely forgotten yes or no

I meant what does redistribute mean? I cannot find a good definition online.

Thank you for the plug-in @pyrochild (I know this post is super old but maybe you'll see this 😀)! 

I have mine up and working (🤓 I'm freaking stoked!), although, I have a question about using the 'outline' feature.  My canvas size is 7,271px x 10,871px-- is this why I'm getting a less clean look?  I set the Thickness in different ranges between 1-10, and it wasn't enough to fully outline.  Higher than that, I get better outline coverage, but an awkward white outline around that.  

Any tricks for me?  

BTW: I promise I'm putting effort into finding as many answers as I can through forums and YouTube videos so as not to wear anybody out with my questions *cough cough @toe_head2001* 🙂.  This particular plug-in is something I don't know how to search for outside this forum and a Youtube video with a direct link to this plug-in, but that particular problem isn't one I saw had to be discussed.

Plese, tell me, where I can download Pyrochild pack for Dot.net 3.5. Unfotunatelly current pack is for Dot.net 4.0. Thank you.


You need to upgrade the software on your system. Install .NET Framework 4.8, then the latest version of Paint.NET.


We cannot help you if you're so far out-of-date like that.

Thank you so much for the plugins. I have one question...

As i'm using curve+ to manipulate the image but as i see that we can "save current as preset" but i want to know the values of the curve. Could you help me to get XY cordinate values from curve. I want to use it as Look Up Table in image processing.

Hi, I received the following error while using the smudge tool.


File: C:\Program Files\paint.net\Effects\Smudge.dll
      Effect Name: pyrochild.effects.smudge.Smudge
      Full error message: System.InvalidOperationException: Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute.
   at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowInvalidOperationException(ExceptionResource resource)

   at PaintDotNet.Menus.EffectMenuBase.RunEffectImpl(Type effectType) in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\Menus\EffectMenuBase.cs:line 1119


Paint.net 4.2.10 (Final

I didn't know where to find the version of the plug-in, but I redid my computer about 6 months ago and redownloaded all the plug-in packs if that helps.  (so sorry)


Thank you, you have great plug-in!

Really love this plugin pack!❤️

I do have a question regarding the Smudge tool though:


Is it possible to put a ''layer'' on top of the one you're smudging? 

For example:

I want to smudge/transform someone's face into a specific silhouette/outline. (say: Make my face fit into Squidward's  from Spongebob)

It's quite difficult to see the result when the smudge tool opens in another, separate, window.


Hope someone can help me out!

Thanks :)

On the first post of the topic specific for the Smudge plugin:

To change the background color or use a picture, right-click on the image in Smudge.


The trick is to copy the target image (or layer) on the clipboard, then switch to the image (or layer) you want to smudge and use the plugin. In the plugin window, right-click the background and chose the clipboard image.
