@Scr4p M3tal: This is not the correct place to ask. I see you have found the Paint.NET Discussion & Questions section of the forum. That's where questions that are not about specific plugins go.

Hello BoltBait, I wanted to thank you for this plug in. I have not used it yet but I'm sure it will be useful. I am new at this and I'm just learning how to use this. I do have a question though. I can't seem to find where to put the Rainbow Palette.txt file. I don't see where to put it in Documents.

Also, I followed your instructions and pasted all the dll files into the effects folder but when I open Paint.net, I don't see the new effects. I don't know how do "unblock" the dll's?

I am running Vista, if that helps. Any help you can give me would be appreciated.

BTW, I am unemployed at the moment but when I get some work, I will be happy to donate for this :)

Thanking you in advance for your help,

Palettes should be copied into the Documents / Paint.NET User Files / Palettes folder. If you do that they should show up automatically in the little menu in the Color Window (Color Window > More > Manage Color Palettes)

Hi BB, Thanks for all your help and I followed the instructions in the above link, the new effects are in the effect folder but I can't find them in the Paint.net program when I open it to use. Any idea's?

As stated in the first post of this thread...

Read this for instructions on how to install Paint.NET plugins. If after reading that page you are still having trouble installing these plugins, post your troubles here.

I am sorry to be a Pain but I am still having a problem installing this so it shows up in the Paint.net program.

  • :ColorPalettes: I have also included an update to my Rainbow Palette. This has been updated for this release of my plugin pack. It includes more colors and a better organization in "reduced window mode".
    Copy the file Rainbow Palette.txt to your My Documents/Paint.NET User Files/Palettes folder and you can select it in your color docker window.
:PlusButton:

I do not find anything from Paint.net in My Documents, the whole thing was installed and unzipped into C/program files/Paint.net. Can you tell me what to do from here? Everything is unzipped but it seems that they are not in the right places. According to your instructions, it says that it should be in c:|documents and settings, but I do not see a "documents and settings" folder.

I am usually pretty good with installing programs onto my computer but this one has me confused for some reason.

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

BBE

Thanks for the plugin pack.

As a newbie I have come across more than one tutorial where your name and plugins comes up, now I have downloaded and will install at once.

And then return to tutorials, to see how to make good use of some of them.

I excuse for my bad english!

boltbait.pizza.png Thank You! Pizza for You! Can't wait to play with these!

I know this is the wrong place to ask...but for lack of trying to explain in another thread.

The above example - Selection > Bevel - How did you go about selecting the text?

My skills with the Magik Wand and Lasso have been weak at best...

Thank You !!!

Thank You !!!

The best way to select the text is to:

1. Place your text on a new, blank layer

2. Select the magic wand tool

3. Shift-Click the blank area outside of the text

4. Press Ctrl-I to invert the selection

The plugin pack attached to the first post on this thread has an updated plugin pack that includes an older version of outline.dll that includes a colorwheel. Sorry for the confusion.

Download and install again and this time, make sure to overwrite all files in your Paint.NET effects folder with the ones included here.

Nice work, but i cant get the object outline working...

EER summed it up nicely on another thread:

In Paint.NET discussions the term 'object' refers to an image element which is located on its own layer. In other words an Object is a collection of pixels on an otherwise transparent layer.

Some plugins require the rest of the layer to be transparent in order to manipulate the edges of an object. (Hint: find these plugins in the Effects | Object submenu)

Or, as it says on the initial post on this thread:

An "object" is a group of pixels on a layer that is completely surrounded by transparent pixels (or the edge(s) of the canvas). These are useful when doing "cutouts" or with text on a new layer.

Really great! Thank you.

But about the blur, is it possible to apply the blur on the photo to the alpha? black: no motion blur -> white: lots of blur.

 

I use 3D software that allows me to render grayscale mask distance (or altitude) [bryce 7 pro] ... It would be great to use the Gaussian Blur plug-in ...

 

This way but much faster.
 

http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/12668-applied-distance-blur-using-alpha-masking/

 

The ideal is to choose the gray level that serves as focal alpha mask. Then apply the filter it removes transparency (with transparency adjustment)

 

Sorry for my bad english (thank you google translate)
