I searched for Layer Saver after midora mentioned it.
i d/l the file that was on the top and somewhere in the middle,
I would try them later when i'll get home, I read the thread and they talk there
about old Paint.Net versions (the thread is old) and i hope that it would
be able to read the last version of Paint.Net PDN files.
i'll keep you updated.
yellowman - I'm a "HE" ;-)
Well i have tried the utility "Save Layers" , its nice and does what it say.
However it has a major problem, that it does not save ALL the layers and saves
only the visible ones :-(
not visible layers are saved as blank transparent in PNG or white in JPG.
this is a problem for me since i need to load the PDN into Paint.net
manually check all the layers as visible and it takes time since there is "no"
button to make all layers visible or not. and i have 70 layers or more.
then save the file in a temp name since i don't want to override the Project PDN.
only then i can use the save layers utility on the new file.
using this utility is faster then my old way of flattening the PDN and saving the layers.
but still needs allot of work before using it.
can the programmer of this wonderful utility (I like Pi?) add the option to save ALL layers of the PDN?
this would be great and solve all the problems or should i say, save the time
to prepare the PDN as i just wrote above.
Rick i know you are busy, but a mark/unmark "all visible", button in the layers window would be great ;-)
(and if i can without making you angry, a restore button or have the undo option/window restore the layers
to the state they where before the mark/unmark all)
last thing , most of the time i don't need ALL the layers, so i just mark the ones i need
then save the temp file :-)
again thanks midora and Ego for telling me about this utility
and if "I like Pi" read this then BIG thank you to him too :-)
