My list of must- have PDN pluginsPosted: December 27, 2010
Wait. I only have one cool application, Paint.Net, and that isn’t as cool as photoshop or PaintShop Pro.
Alright, I will rename this post.
My list of must-have pdn plugins.
1. The Fire Plugin: (http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=10518) This is EPIC. Install it in the Effects folder.
2: The Pyrochild Plugin pack. http://www.box.net/shared/rfc863iy75 (install in Effects.)
All you ever wanted. It has the smudge tool. THE FREAKIN’ SMUDGE TOOL!
3. Icon and Cursors: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/927-icon-cursor-and-animated-cursor-format-v37-may-2010/ (install in Filetypes) I made a Dunce hat cursor with this.
4. Custom Brushes. Does what it says. Gives you different brushes. (install in effects.) http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/15218-simon-bs-plg-pack-inc-custombrushesmini-4th-nov-10/
5. BoltBait’s plugin pack. http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/8318-boltbaits-plugin-pack-updated-july-15-2010/ (Install into effects) It’s a bit of a backup with Pyrochild. I recommend installing both.
Install Paint.Net at http://www.getpaint.net/ It’s not as versatile as Photoshop, but it is FREE!
How to install PDN plugins:
I made a new folder, Plugins. If it is a winzip file , put it in the plugins and extract it into either filetypes (I think those are for extra extensions like .ico and .cur) 90% of the time it is in Effects. You can delete them by going to the folder (effects filetypes) and deleting them. (they are .dll) You should know how to extract a winzip file. If you don’t, look at this:http://hesperia.gsfc.nasa.gov/hessi/solar_install/How_to_extract.html
