Add-ons

Post by seas »

I'm a fresh user of XnViewMP software, just a few days.
I tried to ad new addon from this forum (http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?t=11715), add on "Basic paint features (text, line, rectangle, watermark, ...) in view mode". I downloaded file named "paint" on my desktop and unpacked it to "program files/XnViewMP/AddOn". It unpacked in two files, Paint.lng and Paint.xnp.

With this I followed instructions on "How to Add Plugins to XnView" (http://www.wikihow.com/Add-Plugins-to-XnView).
Problem is that I cant see any commands or toolbar for this new addon. Ignore my ignorance, but I'm really new with this program.
Is there any way to activate this addon? How to do that? How to use this addon?

As I say before, I'm using XnViewMP version 0.61. Is it possible that this addon is created only for normal XnView and not for XnViewMP? If that is the case, what addon I can use to create text, line, rectangle, watermarka and so on?

Thanks in advance for your help!

There are TWO programs:

XnView - aka XnView Classic which supports plugins. For this program you found & read the above references.

XnViewMP - aka XnView MultiPlatform, which is the successor of XnView which has many things implemented better compared with XnView (and not only compared with XnView). However, the XnViewMP has very few things in common with XnView Classic. Hence the above plugin isn't supported.

However, if you want to add watermarks and text you can use the 'Batch Convert' from 'Tools' menu. There you can add actions (on the 'Actions' tab) from which two actions are called 'Text' and 'Watermark'.
