BLP Plugin for Paint.NET

Submitted by Evan Wallace, Verhalthur
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This tool was made by my brother (NOT ME), and allows you to open, view, and edit BLPs in Paint.NET just like any other image format.

To install move Blp.dll to C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\FileTypes\

If you don't have Paint.NET, download it from http://www.getpaint.net/download.html

If there are any BLPs that you can't load/save with this plugin, please post on the Paint.NET forum and attach them (and what they should be as a PNG or TGA or something if possible) and I'll work on supporting them too.

Note: If you do not see "Blizzard Picture (*.blp)" in the open/save box, your computer does not have the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package. Click here to download.

    Keep in mind that I DID NOT MAKE THIS.

    My name isn't Evan Wallace. That is my brother.

    It also opens BLPs directly into Paint.NET by double clicking on any BLP file.

    Dl and enjoy :D

    Nice you posted it here as well.
    But you need to link to the other needed files don't you?
    Oh and so far I have had no problems (as long as you have all required files)

    It's not working

    I copied blp.dll into the filetypes folder and started paint.net.
    I could not open and save any blp files.

    sry for this post but i dont like this program verry much its too simple and for anybody who is reading before and now without this program they can open BLP's as ussually :- / , i like more complicated programs (i mean Programing tools with much more Advanced futured options such as anybody thinks that is impossible to have so complicated programs for example i will take the program Traktor Pro (i am DJ for some .NFO)so it is more easyer for me to work , because that the program is more easy so is more hard to work with it i think so for the others i dont know maybe they are on other mind but i am on that thoughts :-/ )

    This is a pretty useful tool, especially for creating own icons for a self-made map!
    Thank you (or thanks to your brother^^) 5/5
