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.

    I'm not saying this is a bad tool, this is quite helpful actually, but how hard is it to convert it to a .tga and opening it? D:

    I downloaded it and tested it.

    If you have all of the required programs this will work fine.

    I enjoyed the fact that the images would not rotate to wrong side.

    Most others do to give it a 3D perspective that i dislike.

    Overall i will give this program a 9/10.

    It works very well but it would be better if it worked for photoshop.

    If your brother gets it to work with photoshop then its a 10/10 program.

    GJ!

    This is EPIC! I can finally edit textures without the need of high powered image editing programs!

    Nice! Nice! Nice!

    Well done. I really like this tool, it feels like the missing part for my texture-working. Thank you very much :)

    Works! Super pawn, I usually use paint.net for editing since I only do minor edits.
