BoltBait's Plugin Pack for v3.5.11 - Updated January 31, 2015

Recommended Posts

Ok i have no effect folder on my paint.net. If someone can tell me how to get 1 then thtll be most appreciated.

Right-click on your Paint.NET icon and select "Properties".

In the dialog box that comes up, push the "Find Target" button (or "Open File Location" if you're on Vista).

In the window that opens, double-click on the "Effects" folder.

Put the dll files in there... OK?

I am guessing you are using vista, and for that reason, you will need to follow these steps to fix the problem...

I am using version 3.36 of paint.net and vista 32 bit. I tried downloading the zip and extracting it, but vista wont allow me. I visited the link you gave, but I am a bit afraid whether or not I should activate the administrator account. Anyone else has done it? Is it safe? I am just a normal computer user and dont know much about the intricacies.

Kindly suggest.

Thanks for the plugins, I hope I can install and use those someday.

Edited Later: Ok I have copy pasted the dlls without creating the administrator account. I can see them in the paint.net software. Is there a thread where I can know how I can use them, especially the feather plugin?

Thanks again.

An administrator account is necessary because Vista won't allow you to easily get around DEP. You'll need it to move files to program folders, etc. The *very* cool codelab project can only build a dll if you're running paint.net as an administrator on Vista.

Visit the tutorials forum and read, read, read. It's a terrific resource!

Colour Balance is a must. Have you considered adding a Greyscale "checkbox switch" and a contrast slider? You would have a great channel mixer. Outline, feather, selections - it's all good. Thank-You.

Disregard then because if you can't be able to add those different bevelling options.

Edit: After I thought about what I meant, I decided to show you what I meant. In this tutorial, there were several different emboss/bevel being done. I currently have two plugins that does Bevel (beside yours), and Emboss/Engrave plugin. They are okay, but what I am looking for is a plugin that incoporate those "styles" and giving more control. I understand if they can't work because they are working from a selection of an image. However, running Emboss/Engrave or Bevel plugin, I have to select the image first before activating the UI in those plugins; otherwise, it will render the entire canvas rather than the selected object.

For some reason all your plugins disappeared from the effects and adjustments menu when i updated my Paint.NET version to alpha v3.5. I'll download again but i'd thought i'd let you know. :)

My computer (or at least I THINK it's my computer) won't let me download these files. I followed your instructions on it, but unzip does not come up... why is that?

Are you downloading the *.zip file from the first post, or have you clicked on the information icon and been taken to BoltBaits website?

If it's the latter option, the files on that website are not zipped :wink:

BoltBait this is an amazing plug-in pack. I'm really excited about the new Gaussian Blur effect, I love what it did with the picture you posted, and the feather option. (And I'm excited about testing the others as well.) Thanks!

Hi. I can't seem to install these plugins. I saved the download to the effects folder and clicked it. All the files are there, pretty as you please, but when I open paint.net, the plugin features aren't there. My paint.net folder sits directly on my c drive, not in the program files folder and I have windows vista. Does anyone have any advice. I need these plugins badly. Thanks in advance.

The plugin .dll files need to be copied from the zip and pasted into the Effects folder.

All folders zip or non-zip should be removed from the Effects folder.

Only plugin files in the Effects folder, no folders.
