Large Files can't be saved in all File Formats

Recommended Posts

Paint.NET has severe problems with large files when it comes to save them. It happens often to me. Today I encountered it when saving a 3323 x 5656 image (600 dpi). When you set the bit depth to auto (BMP & PNG) or to 8 bit, it says "computing..." "error".



If you ignore that and save the image, you get this:


You can only save it as 24 bit BMP or JPEG (not lossless). 24 bit PNG gives the error (in conrast to BMP).

I assumed it could be a memory problem, but I have 3 GB of RAM and a page file of 3.29 GB (not enlarged), giving me 6.3 GB of memory (again, with not enlarged page file).

If you work with high quality artwork that can become nasty.

Note: I did search but the stuff was about TIFF files. Because I do not want to resurrect the old one (from June, I believe) and the issue obviously does not only affect the TIFF encoder, I decided to make a new topic.

Well, the DPI will not affect this in the slightest. My question: If you save it as a BMP and then try to save it as a PNG in another program, does it give the same error?


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
