pdn-> any other file doesn't work

Hello.

I recently spent a lot of time making around 49 .pdn files. However I want to make them into png, jpg or whatever for use in another program. Unfortunately, I was unable to use any converted files, as they always gave errors seen in the attached files. I tested again by making a .pdn, saving it, then flattening it and changing it to a png. It again gave me this error. Is there are way to convert these files without them seeming corrupted in these forms? And yes I did flatten the .pdn files into 1 layer. Also when converted back to .pdn, they worked fine.

Hi KGVale - welcome to the forum :D

 

How are you 'converting' these files?

 

The correct method would be to use File > Save As and specify *.JPG (or *.png) as the fletype from the drop down selector in the save dialog.

Thanks for the reply.

I've both done as you say and simply renamed the file ending. I also used a file conversion program after this. Each time it corrupts them:/

Changing the file extension does not change the format. The extension is an indicator of the format. A clue to how the data is encoded. Think of it like a chocolate cake: you can put whatever icing you like on it but that doesn't change the fact that it is a chocolate cake. If you want a carrot cake you're going to have to bake it again.
