Beautiful QOM!

Another tip when copying your settings into the default .ini file:

Make sure there are no duplicate numbers! Each setting is given a number after "Setting" in the first field. If any of those "Settingxx" labels are duplicated, I don't think your new ones will show up.

Wink That was it!

Jeanie and Danny, Jeanie had the right answer as did you in private mail. So all who might be interested... you can import your custom settings but have to make sure the setting numbers do not duplicate what is in the default .ini file. After 15 minutes of checking and changing setting numbers, the updated .ini file works fine.

Thumbs down

Very cool, Jim, and MUCH appreciated.

To make it easier for me to try these out, before I load them into my PE .ini, I'm going to rename each as follows:

Before the name you assigned to each, e.g., Oil01, Oil02, etc., I'm going to insert a "#" ... #Oil01, #Oil02, etc.

That way when they are listed in the PE dropdown box, yours will be listed first because of the sort order (# comes before A)! It will also distinguish your creations from the PE default settings.

Thanks to your contribution here I can see I'll be having more fun this weekend!

Click HERE to see an example of an "oil painting" effect achieved using Paint Engine in conjunction with few other tweaks.

It's very good.

Just a "thank you" to Danny and others responsible for posting this link.

I did not have a clue of the potential of Paint engine, until I recently downloaded and tried it. Whoa . . . this is one really bad (meaning good) program, with a simple interface and a nice price tag.

I'm not sure if I agree that there are too many adjustments. I'm not sure if that's possible when you are working on a project. I love having choices.

Anyway . . . thanks again for the link, I'm quite certain I'll be using this, in one form or another, on a regular basis.
