Image Editor Plus

by akaneyu in Addons

Image Editor Plus is an add-on that lets you modify your image in seconds. Clear, fill, flip, rotation, adjusting colors, and applying some filters in just a few clicks without external editors such as PhotoShop or Gimp.

This add-on extends the UV/Image Editor in Blender and provides the following operations.

  • Cut/Copy/Paste
  • Clear, Fill
  • Crop
  • Adjust hue/saturation
  • Adjust brightness/contrast
  • Adjust gamma
  • Adjust color curve
  • Flip, Rotate (-90/+90), Scale for whole image
  • Flip, Rotate (-90/+90/arbitrary), Scale for pasted layers
  • Offset
  • Apply filters

These image operations can be applied to packed/unpacked images, and reflected to the 3D model view immediately.

You can make a selection to edit the desired area on your image (currently only rectangle selection supported).

It's easy to copy/paste a selection or an entire image. The pasted images are displayed as layers, and they can be moved, rotated or scaled.

NOTE: To display pasted layers in the 3D View, you need to use a Image Layers Node instead of built-in Texture Node.

By applying the some filters, you can add special effects to your images.

  • Blur
  • Sharpen
  • Add noise
  • Pixelize (Mosaic)
  • Make seamless

‘Make seamless’ filter is useful for making your image tileable.
