MaxMuhlin Posted March 28 Share Posted March 28 I am a seasoned user of Paint.net - and I use it every day, all day long, and have done so for going on 20 years. I work as an artist, creating content for coloring books, thus many of my images are black and white sketches. HOWEVER, for the purpose of creating manuscript for my publisher, my images are always created as RGB mode and 300 dpi pixel count, 8.5" x 11" page size, and saved as .png files. Lately, when I edit my work for any reason in Paint.net, and simply SAVE the file at the completion of my work it is CONVERTED to Index file mode, often with strange (to me) pixel counts of 37.56 or 118.47 or 762.87 and humongous image dimensions. Is there a way to STOP this from happening? Right now, I must close and save the Paint.net work, then re-open my files in Photoshop, check the file MODE, and change it BACK to RGB (yes, even though the image is a simple black & white sketch, I NEED RGB for my publisher) and very often I must again resize to my 8.5" x 11" page size at 300 dpi, from a HUGE file saved by Paint.net at 37.56 dpi, or 762.87 dpi, or whatever, re-flatten the image, and SAVE again in Photoshop as a .png file before I can go on with my work. Thank you for any and all suggestions! MaxMuhlin Ann K. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
