k so

I made an image for my YT outro and saved as a .pdn file. I put it back in and took it out as a png. It still wouldn't go in my editing software because it was still a .pdn file. I tried to put it back in, and even though it's a .pdn file it won't load. I get this:

System.FormatException: file is not a valid paint.net document
   at PaintDotNet.Document.FromStream(Stream stream) in D:\src\pdn\src\Data\Document.cs:line 1333
   at PaintDotNet.FileType.Load(Stream input) in D:\src\pdn\src\Data\FileType.cs:line 496
   at PaintDotNet.Functional.Func.Eval[T1,TRet](Func`2 f, T1 arg1) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Functional\Func.cs:line 158

 

Any help?

What does that mean? Are you saying a you made a copy in the PNG format? Or did you try to somehow change the format manually?

To determine exactly what format the file is, run this plugin: What's it

I removed the pdn, pressed 'save as', and changed the file type to .PNG.

It says '.pdn' but I'll try it just in case.

 

EDIT: It is indeed a .pdn file.

Changing the file extension doesn't change the format.

 

^^ this.

 

Change the format back - the same way you did it in the first place. Reopen the image then use File > Save As... to specify a new file format. Select the file format from the drop down list - don't type it in!

You will be able to AFTER you change the extension back.

Poltusi, I think that people are trying to tell you that you need to change the file's extension by renaming the file (in Windows, not Paint.NET). If you save a file in PDN, but give it an extension that doesn't match the format, you won' be able to open it.

 

Right-click on the file.

Select Rename from the dropdown list.

Rename it to have the correct extension (ignore the Windows warning message).

You should now be able to open it.
