It's been a while since I've been blogging. I've been very busy with several projects, professionally with U2U Consult as well as personally. Anyway, I have decided to spend a bit more time on this again, and here's the first result.
I've updated my Paint.NET effects. Version 3.3 is a performance update mainly. All effects and adjustments have been optimized, with some spectacular results on the popular Drop Shadow effect. Depending on the scenario (i.e. image and parameter values), I have seen this effect to be more than a hundred times faster!
As a result, I have been able to increase the range for values of the offset, blur and widening parameters. Several users have requested a shadow opacity parameter, so that has been added as well.
Note that the Drop Shadow effect has moved to the Object effect menu, as requested by several users on the Paint.NET forum. And in case you haven't heard: Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software for Windows computers.
