  1. libavif released v0.7.3 with native lossless support, might be helpfull? https://www.reddit.com/r/AV1/comments/gdi12d/libavif_v073_tagged_including_native_lossless_mode/ https://github.com/AOMediaCodec/libavif/releases/tag/v0.7.3 Changelog: https://github.com/AOMediaCodec/libavif/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
  2. Thank you very much for this FileType plugin. Looking forward to start experimenting with AVIF. Is lossless supported/ is quality slider at 100% lossless? Would it be feasible to implement a bit depth option when saving an image?
  3. Decode support since v4.2.2 using Microsofts decoder from Microsoft Store is great, thanks for that. 😊 It would be even greater if Paint.NET could embrace this new open codec even further by implementing the ability to create lossy and lossless AVIF files. Not asking for an ETA or anything, but better get the discussion going sooner rather than later. Since it's about creating a single keyframe, visual quality should be more important than performance/ speed. Don't know enough about AV1 encoders to say which is most fit, but someone else might have the answer to that. Leaving some inspiration on the topic of AVIF: https://netflixtechblog.com/avif-for-next-generation-image-coding-b1d75675fe4
  4. I don't own a ARM64 Windows 10 device yet, but if I ever got one I'd be very glad if Paint.NET could run natively on it. Would it be possible to compile Paint.NET to ARM64 without too much hassle for you developers? Maybe release it in Microsoft Store only. I've already payed for the store version and I love it. I very much like auto updates + supporting the Paint.NET developers at the same time.
  5. If it's a real WebP file you should be able to open it with Paint.net natively I think. You could also try to install this extension for Windows 10, it lets you open WebP files natively in the "Photos" app: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9pg2dk419drg If it's not real WebP, maybe a PNG, remove the ".webp" in the end of the file name so it only says "<name>.png", then try open it with Paint.NET or Windows 10 built in "Photos" app.
  6. New Paint.NET v4.2 uses HEVC video extension on Microsoft Store to encode and decode HEIC images containing HEVC. Neat Can the "free" version of the HEVC video extension (free because license is included in hardware) be used as well? https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9n4wgh0z6vhq
  7. HEIF image extension uses the HEVC video extension for the actual decoding. I think AV1 video decoder will be used for AVIF aswell. HEIF and AVIF are only containers, HEVC and AV1 are the format/ codec they use (yes, HEIF can take many other formats aswell). I also know of the user-made ones. But support for using Microsoft Store codecs for special image format decoding would be much easier to implement for users not that tech savvy. Plus "normal" users don't need to export to webp, avif and other fancy formats, they'll just be happy if they can open and edit photos from their phone and internet. I'm realising that I'm generalising much here, but yeah.
  8. Would be cool if both the exe installer version and the Microsoft Store version of Paint.NET could use the codecs available in the Microsoft Store to open special image file types. This will mostly be decoding, AFAIK there is no encoder in these "codecs". Examples of codecs that would be relevant: AV1 Video Extensions https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9mvzqvxjbq9v HEIF Image Extensions https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9pmmsr1cgpwg HEVC Video Extensions (Software decoder for all hardware, $$$) https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9nmzlz57r3t7 HEVC Video Extensions from Device Manfufacturer (Hardware decoder for supported hardware, free) https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9n4wgh0z6vhq RAW Image Extension https://microsoft.com/store/apps/9nctdw2w1bh8 WebP Image Extensions https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9pg2dk419drg
  9. First of all I'd like to say that I'm a long time user of Paint.NET, and just recently bought the Microsoft Store version. So far so good, well spent money. I'd like to request a feature addition: Ability to set a custom folder location for Paint.NET App Files. Today i use %userprofile%\Documents\Paint.NET App Files, symlinked to a OneDrive for Business folder, so I have the same tools across all my workstations. Have been working flawless until now, but symlinking is not compatible with OneDrive for Business latest features, "Known Folder Move". I'd like to have the ability in Paint.NET settings to set a custom App Files folder, directly to my OneDrive for Business folder.
  10. With Paint.net manual install version I could choose to open SVGs with Paint.net through the "Open with" dialog. With Paint.net Windows Store / UWP version, Paint.NET does not show as an alternative. I have to open Paint.NET first, then drag'n'drop a SVG on to it. I'm using this FileType plugin btw: https://github.com/otuncelli/Scalable-Vector-Graphics-Plugin-for-Paint.NET Is it possible to add SVG as a file type Paint.NET may be able to open, or is this a limitation with Windows Store/ UWP apps? Choosing the exe manually from UWP install folder (C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\dotPDNLLC.paint.net_4.101.6828.0_x64__h55e3w7q8jbva\PaintDotNet.exe) is not possible, gives an error code.
  11. No, I did not recently turn on that setting. There have been several restarts of my Windows laptop since I reported this, and the issue is still present. Also, it happens on both my laptops, so I think it's not a isolated case. Happens with v4.0.21 too (nothing regarding this in the changelog, but thought I should mention it)
  12. Hi! Let me start by saying that I LOVE the new black theme! But it has a little bug: When the Paint.NET window is not active, some places turn white. See this screenshot: - This happens on both of my laptops, both running Windows 10 1709 16299.192 en_US. One 'Pro' and one 'Pro for Workstation'. - Happens both with theme set to auto, and dark. - Windows theme is set to dark. - Happens regardless of the "Show accent color on the following surfaces: Title bars" setting.
