  1. No, i was not using the File Explorer, and all my image-files are set to automatically open in PDN, whether i open it from PDN or FE.
  2. Hello y'all ! Im a home concept-vehicle designer and long-time user of PDN, and recently after returning to work on a couple of my BMP images, i discovered i am unable to SAVE, DELETE or MOVE these two BMP images (side-view versions of a concept vehicle of mine) !!!....Are these two BMPs "corrupted" ?.... THE PROBLEM : When i click SAVE (for either of these two BMPs), a message process-percentage box appears saying "working on it....", but the percent continuously remains at "0%", and nothing happens !....SAME thing when i try to DELETE or MOVE those BMPs. And the ONLY way i found i can STOP that process is by opening the TASK MANAGER (ctrl+alt+delete) and closing PDN, which CANCELS ALL my latest work on the BMP image !!!....My other image files are NOT affected. IMPORTANT NOTES : 1. My system : One 2014 Toshiba Satellite 15" 1080p laptop (64-bit based) pc with 687 GB total hard-drive memory (181 GB used), connected to a 2016 Vizio 32" 1080p HDTV/monitor (and two 2016 Insignia stereo pc speakers), using Windows 10 (home edition) and the Firefox browser (latest version 78.0.1). 2. I use PDN to save ALL my image-files as BMPs, as it is the ONLY "lossless" image format available and practically USABLE for me, in PDN. 3. Most of my image BMPs are way under 10 MB, but many of my concept BMPS are near or over 100MB each (necessary for fine-detail work), and the two problem-BMPs are both 140 MB each. Altho i was able to save new/editable copies of these two BMPs, i still want to know WHY this happened and HOW (if possible) to fix this problem, as it MAY happen again in the future....Ive searched the PDN forums and the Internet without success....Anyone here have the WHY and/or HOW ?
  3. Im a designer, and two VERY important large BMP IMAGE FILES i recently created and edited many times in PDN now CANNOT be SAVED, DELETED or MOVED ! (my other similarly-large image files are NOT affected).... IMPORTANT NOTES : 1. I use WINDOWS 10 (home edition / 64-bit based). 2. I never need or use LAYERS in creating or editing my images (and if i accidentally press the "merge layers" menu-item, i can then undo that).... 3. I save ALL my image-files ONLY as BMPs because it is the ONLY "lossless" image-format available and USABLE for me on PDN and Windows 10. During a SAVE/DELETE/MOVE process, the percentage window just freezes at "100%", and then NOTHING (stays frozen forever) !....the ONLY way ive found to UNFREEZE it is to open the TASK MANAGER and CLOSE PDN, which cancels ALL my latest work on the image !.... Any way i try to SAVE, DELETE or MOVE it (to the RECYCLE bin, for example), a percentage-graph window appears, stating "working on it", but no percentage count-down or anything happens (the graph stays on-screen forever), so i then have to open TASK MANAGER and CLOSE PDN (losing ALL my latest file-work) to return to my image files !.... I also tried RESTARTING (which does NOT fix it), and searched online for a SOLUTION....Does ANYONE on PDN (....Rick ?....) have a solution ?
  4. Hello Everbody ! QUESTION : Can text created in OpenOffice be inserted into a BMP image in PDN ?....If yes, HOW do i do that ?
  5. Hello everbody ! ....Hows this for a really unbelievable and crazy feature request : a TEXT tool on PDN (or a PDN plug-in) that actually provides the user the option to also JUSTIFY* the R-side of a paragraph or text !!! I realize some of you readin this are maybe thinkin "Hey fool !....that's already on PDN !" Well, i searched for it on PDN, with ZERO results. Or did i miss it ? * NOTE (only for those who do NOT know the definition of "justified text / paragraphs") : it means the L and /or R side of a text or paragraphs is vertically straight and not jagged.
  6. Ego- I use the latest version of PDN, on Window10 /Home Edition. 1. No, i was/am referring to the PDN tool windows ("dialog" box windows. Examples : ALL of the "Adjustments" dialog boxes, ALL of the "Effects" dialog boxes, etc). 2. What do u mean by "child" window (which most internet users probably dont know either) ? 3. Im not a "Developer", im a PDN USER and i need to have ALL PDN tool windows ("dialog boxes") appearing at a side area that i choose, NOT obstructing my work image. So again, would you (or somebody) please explain how that need does not make sense ?!!!
  7. I regularly use PDN (which is easier for me to use than other image apps), but a very frustrating aspect of it to me is that EVERY time i click to use a tool, the tool-window ALWAYS appears annoyingly centered on top of my work-image, requiring me EACH time to grab and move the window away to a side area !!!.... QUESTION 1 : Is there a way to permanently RE-SET this unwanted window-position to a designated side-area ? QUESTION 2 : If the answer to Q1 is NO, why does PDN not allow users to set their own tool-positions ?
  8. HELLO Again Everybody ! - Is there a PLUG-IN (or downloadable app) to instantly TRANSLATE text in PDN images ?....it would be very useful and time-saving to INSTANTLY translate foreign-language text in PDN images into PDN, JPG, BMP, and other image formats. For example : with one click a JPG image of a page of french text opened in PDN is INSTANTLY translated. Thx !
  9. Bolt- i did NOT intend, authorize or initiate those few multiple-replicated (incomplete) posts that just happened today. The system wrongly automatically posted those, so could you please allow deletion of those now ? - hypercat
  10. Bolt- thx for the reply. Its just a little confusing to me. Also, my incomplete reply to Rick was suddenly replicated automatically a few times but i didnt mean to do that or authorize that (and tried to fix those, because i dont see a DELETE option anywhere). i will try Rick's solution again, but as he related, its not a simple procedure.
  11. Im trying to DELETE my incomplete reply here, but theres no DELETE option, and these incompleted replies keep replicating automatically themselves on the topic page!!! (not my intention)
  12. Hi Rick - Thx very much for that latest solution ! I will try it ASAP and report to you the result (....gotta get some sleep now). BTW - Why PNG over BMP ? - hypercat ?
  13. toe - thx for the reply ! Below is the DETAILS info you requested (which i just now added to my post). ALL my PICTURE files are saved in BMP, and set to open with PAINT.NET as the DEFAULT, unless i specifically choose another app. Heres an example : 1. to get to one of my vintage MAGAZINE cover images, starting from my PICTURES folder, there are EIGHT categorized sub-folders. 2. There, i choose a file (a cover-image). 3. When i L-click on it, this msg appears in a small window : "The directory could not be found". 4. When i L-click on DETAILS in that window, this file-path info appears : System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Users\Paul M\Pictures\DIGITAL Photography & Video\Special Photo Collections\PMA Collection\1. Architectural\1. Publication Covers & Pics - 1920-2000\01. Publication Covers - 1920-2000\01 - Mags - 1920-Present\2.

  14. Hello Everyone- My BMP image files CAN be opened in other apps (MS Paint, SketchBook, etc)....but now they are NOT opening in my ONLY reliable (MAIN) photo-editing app, Paint.net !!! This started several moths ago after i updated to WINDOWS 10. ALL my PICTURE files are saved in BMP (a lossless format), and are set to open with PAINT.NET as the DEFAULT (unless i specifically choose another app). Heres an example : 1. to get to one of my vintage MAGAZINE cover images, starting from my PICTURES folder, there are EIGHT categorized sub-folders. 2. There, i choose a file (a cover-image). 3. When i L-click on it, this msg appears in a small window : "The directory could not be found". 4. When i L-click on DETAILS in that window, this file-path info appears : System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Users\Paul M\Pictures\DIGITAL Photography & Video\Special Photo Collections\PMA Collection\1. Architectural\1. Publication Covers & Pics - 1920-2000\01. Publication Covers - 1920-2000\01 - Mags - 1920-Present\2.

Anyone know WHY?....or of any FIX ? - hypercat ?
  15. "I regularly load over 700 plugins - should paint.net remember every one of them?" Ego- Mine arent plug-ins, as i said theyre tool windows, and even if i had a million of em (or 700) i still wouldnt want ANY of em in the MIDDLE-of -screen. Thats my workspace that i dont want repeatedly obstructed every time i return to my work (a reasonable concern, i think). but thx 4 the humor. - Hypercat ?
  16. I tried to DELETE my older unnecessary POSTS on PDN, but i cant find ANY way to do that, including NO trash-can symbol anywhere, not even in EDITING mode. Anyone know a way to do that ? Another classic PDN mystery. - hypercat ?
  17. Hey Everyone!....PDN is really GREAT !!!....but....can ANYONE please explain to me WHY the DEFAULT Position of the multiple PDN Effects Dialogue Windows are all PERMANENTLY set to appear in MIDDLE-of-screen (obstructing a user's work each time he/she returns to it), instead of to Last Position Used ?.... Can someone PLEASE explain this to me ?!!! Thanks ! - hypercat ?
  18. Heyall !....Is there a photo-editing app with a Drag-n-Click type tool for PaintDotNet that (either automatically or manually) corrects skew distortion (slanted or bulged buildings, etc) ??? Some years ago online i saw a photo-edit app use of such a tool.... The example shown : Step 1. User activates the tool. Step 2. User clicks on 4 corners of a skewed and bulged building in a digital image. A grid automatically appears over those chosen points in the same distorted shape. Step 3. User L-Clicks once on image and the grid then corrects the skewed and bulged building to its correct shape.... Anyone know where to get something like this ???
  19. What is the simplest way, in PDN, to un-distort a photographic image that has distorted perspective (such as with "crooked buildings", etc) ? Is there a photo app that includes such a "Perspective Correction" tool ? Many years ago i had a (now defunct) Corel app that had it (one simply clicked on corner points of a distorted object in the image, then the next click would instantly bring those points (and the rest of the image) to proper perspective.
  20. First, i want to say that Paint.net is an amazingly versatile app, but still there are some simple yet valuable tools and setting options that should be included. For example : When im returning to unfinished work, the Tool Windows always appear, VERY annoyingly, in the center of the screen (obscuring an image being worked on, which just makes no sense). Is there a way the Window Position Default can be RESET so windows automatically remember "last position used" ? Surprisingly, any such options are NOT yet provided in Settings.
  21. Hi Evan - I have latest Firefox browser on Windows XP/SP 3. After i assigned paint.net to open your FX plugin pack, i downloaded your FX pack (mainly for the Quadrilateral Reshape tool), but when the Paint.net workspace opens, this message appears- "The image type is not recognized, and cannot be opened" !!! How do i open this download ? Heres the download info in your post : Download: http://www.evanolds....l/EOEffects.dll (download link is case sensitive)
  22. Hi Tanel ! - Im a beginner with all this, so please help if you can.... PAINT.net only has that rediculous "TINT" slide-rule bar for color correction (if one slides it for less green, it then makes too much magenta, etc).... Do you (or someone else) have a COLOR PLUG-IN for PAINT.net to INDEPENDENTLY decrease / increase any of at least these FIVE colors (using slide-bars) ? : YELLOW BLUE GREEN RED MAGENTA ....Or at least any of these THREE colors ? : YELLOW RED BLUE (or GREEN) Also, do you (or someone) have a PLUG-IN for PAINT.net that provides for correcting perspective (slanted buildings, etc) using INDEPENDENT pull-points ? Thx ! Also, if downloading / using any of these is tricky or complicated, pls warn me ! Thx ! - Paul M.
