bjf Posted June 16, 2020 Share Posted June 16, 2020 (edited) Hi, I'm a long-time user of PDN, but apparently I still have questions about it... I searched previous posts on here and on Google, and had trouble getting a straight answer. The Problem I am working with a source image that is in PNG format. This image contains a color with the hex code #796F75. Because I must export as JPEG, I am keeping the alpha at 255. Upon saving the image as a JPEG (even with Quality=100, Chroma Subsampling=4:4:4) and reopening the image in PDN, this color has magically transformed itself to #7A6F75. I attached a 16x16 PNG of nothing but #796F75 if you'd like to download and try. Color Profiles? I see this term come up a lot when Googling around this issue, but I'm not really sure what it has to do with this problem. I found a post on this forum from 2012 that says PDN had no concept of color profiles, and as far as I can tell, sRGB and YCbCr both handle full 24 bit-depth of colors anyways. My Question Is there a setting I'm missing in PDN, a missing feature, a problem with JPEG, or something else entirely? Is it possible for me to save a JPEG with this exact color? Thanks, Brandon Edit 1: I'm using paint.net v4.2.12 Edited June 16, 2020 by bjf Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
