safe in .jpg

Recommended Posts

Hi @comandante tuqueque

Welcome to the forum.

The default format for paint.net is PDN. Changing it would be a step in the wrong direction. It is default for a reason.

Another app that only supports .jpg would be your choice if you are insistent on that procedure.

(My New Signature) Nickpic was a image hosting source made specifically for RPers and its shutting down. 

I use postimage.IO for free web hosting. How long before they follow photobucket and NicKPic?

Can I change the default save format to JPG?

No, jpeg is a "lossy" format. That is, every time you open a jpeg and save it, you're losing quality. This is like making a photocopy of a photocopy, etc. PNG and PDN, on the other hand, are exact formats. You can open and save them as often as you like without losing a single pixel of quality. So, paint.net defaults to PNG format for single layer images and PDN for multiple layer projects. If you want to save as jpeg, you need to choose it by hand. This ensures that you won't lose quality in your image unless you specifically choose to do so.
