VDJ Posted June 12, 2018 Share Posted June 12, 2018 I would like to use Paint.NET as an alternative editor for scanned documents. These documents are actually plans, both architectural and topographic. Especially the topographic plans can be 1. very old and 2. very big. A typical topo. plan is 30 cm high and between 3m and 15m. (yes, meters) long. It generates scanfiles of several megabytes, up to 500 MB when scanned to TIF. By default, all scans are done on 999 mm wide. (almost the complete width of the scanner) The scan has to be rotated (+/-90°), cropped, and leveled with the 'Layers>rotate' function, after wich it can be cleaned up with the 'Adjustments>Curves' tool. This works fine on smaller scans. But I have now a scan of + 4m (so, actually not that big) where it goes wrong. Whatever sequence of the above actions I take, also when I save intermediate steps, when I try to level the image, using the 'Layers>Rotate' function, it destroys the image and leaves me with nothing than transparent pixels. Destruction takes place from the moment the windows appears. What do I do? Can this be overcome? Paint 4.0.21 - Win 10 Pro 1607 - 8 GB RAM - the cropped image is 4600x49000 point, about.
