I had three projects going at once,
one was saved.
I was re-saving it as a JPGs,
then when saved hitting undo to get back to having it un 'flattened',
so I could make alterations and resave it as another jpg.
The project was saved at the final point but I wanted to make different jpg versions.
This worked fine a few times, but I did undo too quick after saving one of them I think...
and paint.net hung and said it had to close.
While to dialog box came up asking me to click ok.. which I tried to avoid,
knowing I might lose my other 2 unsaved projects I was working on.
So in procexp which is a pro version of task manager,
I created a memory dump of the paint process which is just over 1gb.
Anyway I was forced to click ok and it continued the crash,
and when i reopened paint.net, to my dismay it hadn't recovered anything.
So my question is....
What do I do with a memory dump?
Can I use it to get my projects back?
I am thinking it contains the raw instructions like "image locations are here,
these are the layers and actions and this is the resulting image"...
Basically I had several images with varying transparencies and not much fancy graphic work,
but I don't think I can recreate them off the top of my head. As most of what I liked
occured out of luck.
Aka pasting in another image which asked to stretch the canvas, which created a blank space,
which I the colored and added text. Then rotating certain layers and etc ended up with the overall product I was happy with. But was about to save after I was done making the jpg copies of one.
