paint.net 4.2.13 alpha build 7497

Recommended Posts

This update adds some additional low-bit-depth choices to several file types (PNG, BMP, TIFF), and fixes some bugs. I should be able to do a final release of this soon!

 

To get this update, make sure you have "Also check for pre-release (beta) versions" enabled in Settings, and then click on the Check Now button. (Unfortunately alpha/beta releases are not currently available for the Microsoft Store version of the app).

You can also download and install this update directly: https://www.getpaint.net/files/zip/preview/paint.net.4.213.7497.39107.install.zip

 

Changes since 4.2.12:

  • New: Added 2-bit per pixel support when saving as PNG
  • New: Added 1-bit per pixel support when saving as PNG, BMP, and TIFF
  • Fixed low-bit-depth saving quality (8-bit, etc.), as it would sometimes produce very bad results (e.g. only using 64 colors instead of 256)
  • Fixed: Sometimes recently saved images would not have an updated thumbnail in File Explorer unless/until its window was manually refreshed
  • Fixed: Sometimes saving an image to a network share on a non-Windows server (e.g. Linux) would not work
  • Updated bundled DDSFileTypePlus plugin to version 1.10.4.0, which fixes an issue when loading and saving images using the sRGB color space. This issue was reported here: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116572-dds-file-format-bc1-bc7-srgb-export-incorrectly. Thanks @null54!

Enjoy!
