I use your program and I like it very much. Unfortunately, I have problem with opening a picture file.
I open the Paint.NET program. Then I click the Open icon or select File, Open from the menu.
I receive an error "Not enough memory to load the image".
When I right click on the file in windows explorer and select Open with Paint.NET the the file is open OK.
Format: JPG (1 layer)
I calculated the memory requirements for this image and it should be approximately 848 MB (I used the calculation found on your web (7016x10552x4)x(1+2)= 888 393 984 bytes))
Physical available memory is about 1.5 GB.
When I open the file by using the workaround then it can be seen that it took the calculated amount 848 MB. There is still some amount of physical memory available as expected.
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (2 GHz)
RAM: 2 GB (4x 512 MB modules, DDR400)
VGA: ATI radeon 1950 Pro with 512 MB VRAM
OS: Windows XP Home 32-bit English w/SP3 + all critical updates
Could you please look at the problem?
note: I have the same problem on PDN 3.5.2, 3.5.1 and 3.36.
