  1. Ohhhhh! So that's what it was! Thanks, I had no idea of what was going on, but I knew it had to be something related to that picture; it's the first time I've come across it.
  2. I've just come across something odd, I'm linking to the problematic picture for you to try (it's ~2.2MB zipped): https://gofile.io/d/tflvWZ It's a 24-bit 933x1080 PNG file I wanted to compress to JPEG resulting in a file smaller than 512 bits, however when saving as JPEG even with the slider all the way to the left with several artifacts the file still weighs over 1.5MB. I'm using 4:4:4 chroma subsampling but it happens with the other options too. Is there something wrong with the picture? The PNG file was produced by paint.net, I have checked 4.2.11 in case there was something wrong in the .12 release, but it seems to also produce the same results. In case it's relevant, I'm running Windows 10 2004.
  3. Oh... I see, thanks for the answer. After reading about the color profiles thing I think there's not much to do in that regard. Many programs (most of them?) don't understand color profiles or make use of them, and even in browsers things are not always correctly implemented. What I did in the end, in case anybody is in the same situation, was using a trial version of Photoshop (at least I know that understands color profiles, I couldn't find anything free that did the same) and there change the color profile to sRGB. sRGB seems to be a kind of generic color profile, so if an image is using that color profile you can omit its embedding when saving the image (or saving to a format that doesn't support color profile embedding). After converting to sRGB the image looks more or less (pretty close but not exactly the same) as when the original profile was used and I could resize it and save it maintaining the intended colors.
  4. Hi David, thank you for the answer. The image linked in the post was the original one, without modifications. Just by opening it you can see that it doesn't look the same as when opened in Windows Photo Viewer (the default image viewer of Windows). I'm uploading it somewhere else in case there's a problem with that sever, this is another link: https://db.tt/ANslAynn
  5. Hello, I just found a wallpaper I wanted to try on my laptop and since its resolution didn't match the one of my laptop I wanted to resize it. So I opened the image in paint.net and resized it but after saving the image I noted there were differences in colors. Windows' Photo Viewer displays the image correctly (original) but Paint is also unable to edit the image respecting its colors. Its as if the image became less warm, even less detailed of sorts. What could be the cause? This is a link to the image because it exceeds the maximum size allowed for an attachment: http://filebin.ca/1SN6IvK9n7Yw/ThroughClouds.jpg
  6. Hello, today I needed to edit some 32-bit BMP files (bitmaps with alpha channel) and while paint.net opened them perfectly (i.e. transparency was displayed as expected) when saving the file transparent pixels became white, the BMP went to be 24-bit. Looking for a fix I found somebody wrote a plugin back in the day for the 32-bit BMP format but it doesn't seem to work with the new version (haven't tried with the old one though). Since the source code was published along with the dll and pdb of the plugin it would be possible to update it and build it again, but I have no knowledge of C#. Could anybody do it please? As a side note, since opening a 32-bit BMP seems to work fine in paint.net, may I suggest adding the possibility to save in 32-bit BMP format in a future release? Thank you for the time anyway. PS. My browser is acting up (IE11) and I can't seem to be able to paste or add a link to the post... I'm writing by hand, there could be a typo: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/11201-alpha-32bits-bitmap-support-for-paintnet/ EDIT: I forgot to post here the error I'm getting... it's attached to the thread now. Error when saving.txt
