Fun Stuff; Possibly Useless

Paint.net plugins

I maintain a collection of plugins for the paint.net image editor.


Adjustments menu

SubLCD.png  SubLCD – Adjust image to appear to use ClearType-like rendering. Mostly useful for text. Originally created by @xrl.


Effects > Blurs menu

ClampedGaussianBlur.png  Gaussian Blur (Clamped) – Much like the regular Gaussian Blur effect, except this effect gets clamped to the active selection. This effectively stops colors (and transparency) from bleeding through from outside of the selection.


Effects > Distort menu

ScreenPixel.png  Screen Pixel – breaks an image into it’s constituent RGB components. Originally created by @Bleek II.


Effects > Fill

BlurFill.png  Blur Fill – Fills transparent areas of the canvas with a scaled copy of an object within the layer. The height vs. width ratio is fixed.


Effects > Photo menu

InsetBoxShadow.png  Inset Box Shadow – Uses inner shadowing to create photo type frame of varying transparency. Imagine a square vignette which can be placed inside the edge of an image by a given margin.


Effects > Render menu
