Files saved in .PNG are corrupted...

Recommended Posts

Many of the FileTypes (including PNG) were changed/upgraded/modernized in Paint.NET v4.2.


If you go to File -> New, and then save it as a PNG, will that too be corrupted?

Did this issue start with Paint.NET v4.2.0 for you?

You are using the built-in PNG option, and not some FileType plugin (such as OptiPNG)?

(September 25th, 2023)  Sorry about any broken images in my posts. I am aware of the issue.

They might just have the wrong file extension. Try renaming from .png to .pdn or something.


Also, related to what @toe_head2001 said, make sure you're on the latest version (4.2.5) of the app. There have been some fixes in this area since 4.2.
