Saving by typing .png extension

Speaking of PNGs, I recently tried to save a png by typing in the .png extension in the save as dialogue box.

The file saved but could not be opened by PDN or Photo. Would this surprise anyone?

Did you also choose .png from the drop-down list?  THAT is what determines the format. The other just changes the name.

Understood. No, I didn't select it from the drop down list. I was just surprised it didn't save correctly.

Oh, it saved correctly... the file name just doesn’t match the contents. If you change the extension to, I don’t know, .pdn it would probably load.
