How To Make Normal Maps With PAINT.NET - A Tutorial for Source Engine.

a very small tutorial on how to make bump maps (normal maps) with paint.net and what plugins you will need and how to install them

1. First you will need to download the plug-in from [here](https://github.com/simonbrown/NormalMapPlus/releases/ "plug-in") 2. Once downloaded open the .zip and extract to C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects 3. Open up Paint.NET the new effect is located in Effects> Stylize 4. Edit the normal map how you please and you are done 5. Optional* if you do not know how to get it into the game I recommend this tutorial [here](http://tf2.gamebanana.com/tuts/7180 "ingame")

Plugins and simplicity can make wonders. I never knew about plugins until I had to use an alpha blur plugin thank goodness i found out about them they save a lot of time :D

    > **Posted by Antivirus_404** > Meh... can anyone give at least proper use for these normal map plugins? They're not real normals anyway... honestly this tutorial could be taken as "how to install plug-ins on paint.net", but you have a point
