  7. This release will be fixing a handful of bugs and adds JPEG XR file type support. For now there's only a direct download link. I'll be adding this to the built-in updater in a few hours after I run some errands. Download: https://www.getpaint.net/files/zip/test/paint.net.4.201.7151.31272.install.zip Changes: New: JPEG XR file type support Fixed: Holding Ctrl when dragging a selection with Move Selected Pixels will again leave a copy behind (but only with the mouse) Fixed crashes when saving DDS images Fixed VTF plugin compatibility; it was not working in 4.2 except for images that were an exact power-of-2 size on each dimension Fixed: .BMP files can be opened even if they're not actually BMP images (they still need to be a valid WIC-supported file type such as PNG, JPEG, etc.) Fixed (stabilized) menu ordering of effect plugins that have duplicate names Fixed metadata handling that was preventing some images with EXIF tag 330 from being able to load Fixed metadata preservation for old images that pad EXIF string values with null terminators Fixed title bar text color when using certain custom accent colors in Windows 10 Fixed very bad performance when opening large images with embedded rotation metadata
  8. You can also Select All (Ctrl+A), then Copy Merged (Ctrl+Shift+C), then Copy into New Image (Ctrl+Alt+V), and save that as the PNG. There's your "export to PNG" functionality for now.
  9. Files are not being "closed" or "opened". Just undo the flattening. When you go to re-save it will require the use of the PDN format because PNG only supports 1 layer.
  10. This is coming back in 4.2.1 while using the mouse. The fix was intended to only affect the keyboard use (Ctrl + Arrow Key should move by 10 pixels, not copy and move by 10 pixels).
  11. FYI: The upcoming 4.2.1 update has JPEG XR support built-in, so this plugin will be blocked from loading. Edit: Note that if you're using Windows 7 then you will still need this plugin.
  12. In the Save As dialog: Tab (switch to file type dropdown) J (select JPEG) Enter (you're done) I'm not going to add an option for something that can cause data loss, especially since you can just practice the keyboard chord a little and be exactly where you need to be.
  13. There's no need for a new shortcut. You can already do this. Ctrl+Alt+Shift+C (Copy Selection) Del switch to the next layer Ctrl+Alt+Shift+V (Paste Selection) Del switch to the next layer Ctrl+Alt+Shift+V (Paste Selection) Del you get the idea There are also new shortcut keys in v4.2 for moving between layers (see Edit -> Go to Layer _____). (If you had read @Zagna's post above you'd already have figured this out.)
  14. Can you send me some of these images? I can do some performance profiling and get it figured out.
  15. I’ve seen this crash happen if a reboot is needed to finish the update -- the updater is supposed to tell you this (one person reported it did not though, which is really unfortunate). So ... try rebooting. That should not happen the next time there’s an update though. It was related to an obscure bug in the Explorer thumbnail handler for DDS and TGA image types, and it should be fixed now.
  16. I've got this fixed for 4.2.1. VTF requires images to have width and height that are a power-of-2 (e.g. 128, 256, 512). The Save Configuration dialog doesn't handle things correctly when the saved image is a different size than the in-memory image.
  17. Maybe you saved a PDN as a PNG by accident? Pretty common mistake. Rename the .PNG to .PDN and it just might work.
  18. Hmm, it's working fine here, as far as I can tell anyway ... can you give me exact steps to repro the issue? Include a sample image if you can. Might have to ZIP it up. (I split this off into its own thread ... easier to have a conversation about this issue directly that way)
  19. FYI, I can't investigate or fix this without the information requested above ^^^
  20. Okay thanks, I'll be sure to look into it soon for the next update (4.2.1).
  21. Well they're not DDS images, and that's a fact.
  22. Did this work in previous versions of Paint.NET? Can you upload the image?
  23. That isn't a DDS image. I have no idea what it is. DDS images are supposed to start with "DDS ".
  24. You might need to reboot after installing the update. Try that and let us know if it works.
