Hello, maueey. If you used the standard installation, your effects folder will be located at C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects. If you installed it in a different place and can't remember where, a search should reveal its location. If none of this works, I'm sorry, I cannot help you, other than advise you to reinstall.

Good luck.

The "Paint.NET User Files" folder is in your "My Documents" area on your computer.

To get to Program Files, you have to go up a few levels to "My Computer" ("Computer" if you're using Vista), then into "Local Disk (C:)" (the default install drive), then into "Program Files", and into the folder "Paint.NET". In that folder, you'll find the "Effects" folder, which is where you'll need to drop the DLLs.

I don't know why you addressed this "for mods". I really have no idea why you think this question requires us mods to answer it.

Also, this belongs over in troubleshooting.
