HOW can i recover a DELETED image i wanted to save ?


Recommended Posts

This morning i had just done a few HOURS of digital work creating a special modified movie still, and as i was opening another new canvas, the PDN system msg window appears, asking me if i want to share a particular image, showing an image i do NOT want saved, so i click on "DO NOT SAVE".  Then i go back to the special image i was long working on....and i discover THAT is the image the PDN system deleted !!!!!  I angrily screamed in disbelief in the realization i had just LOST all those hours of careful work !!!!!....WHY did the PDN system NOT show me a picture of THAT special image i was working on, but an UNWANTED image, when it asked me if i wanted to save it ???!!!!....

 

After this happened, i searched the PDN Forum for help on this matter using the SEARCH box with- "HOW can i recover a DELETED image i wanted to save ?", but got a list of thousands of question titles of which i could not find ANY related to my question....

 

QUESTIONS :  1. Is there a way to RECOVER a DELETED image i wanted to save in PDN ?.... 2. If NOT, why should there NOT be a way for the PDN to facilitate such an image recovery ?  Rick, if you are reading this post, or have read this post, please respond to it.

Paint.NET asked you if you wanted to share an image? I find that hard to believe. or was that just a typo of save?

In the save prompt, Paint.NET shows you thumbnails of all unsaved images. Perhaps you just noticed the first one, but not the others.

 

If you didn't save your image to disk, then it was cleared from memory and doesn't exist anymore.

Paint.NET will either show you the 1 image that's unsaved, or all unsaved images (when closing the app). You told it not to save it. Therefore, it's gone, and it cannot be recovered. Paint.NET did what you told it to do. I'm pretty sure you just misunderstood the prompt that came up.

 

Don't forget to save your images regularly.
