Fisherman's Friend Posted October 7, 2008 Share Posted October 7, 2008 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.
