Saving JPEG Issues

Recommended Posts

Hello all, having some issues trying to save a JPEG file for a client. Can save the project file but cannot save the jpeg. Image size is 28800x28800 (96 inches x 96 inches) at 300 DPI. Attached is the error output.


My system specs (Not sure what all you need): AMD FX6300 Processor, 32 GB RAM, AMD 390 8GB Graphics card, Windows 7 x64, .NetFramework 4.6.1, Paint.net 4.0.9, anything else you need to know?




System.Runtime.InteropServices.ExternalException (0x80004005): A generic error occurred in GDI+. at System.Drawing.Image.Save(Stream stream, ImageCodecInfo encoder, EncoderParameters encoderParams) at PaintDotNet.Data.JpegFileType.OnSaveT(Document input, Stream output, PropertyBasedSaveConfigToken token, Surface scratchSurface, ProgressEventHandler progressCallback) in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\Data\JpegFileType.cs:line 72 at PaintDotNet.FileType.Save(Document input, Stream output, SaveConfigToken token, Surface scratchSurface, ProgressEventHandler callback, Boolean rememberToken) in D:\src\pdn\src\Data\FileType.cs:line 293 at PaintDotNet.Controls.DocumentWorkspace.<>c__DisplayClass244_0.<DoSave>b__2() in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\Controls\DocumentWorkspace.cs:line 3005 at PaintDotNet.Functional.Func.Try(Action f) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Functional\Func.cs:line 174

I think GDI+ / WIC just can't handle images that size


Well, that's really annoying


Just last week I tried saving an image that was 65,535 x 65,535 and it didn't work, but wasn't expecting it to fail on images much smaller. Hrumph.

In that case, why don't you try flattening all the layers of that image, then CTRL+C to copy then CTRL+V to Paste it on MS Paint and then save it as .jpg from there? With that size, I suspect even MS Paint would lag a lot.
