Crazy Man Dan Posted August 25, 2006 Share Posted August 25, 2006 Greetings smarter people! I recommended Paint.NET to a client for resizing images of their products to put on an online store. They downloaded it, installed it, went to use it, and encountered the error: "There was an unspecified error while saving the file." What they did was opened a .tif, resized it, and tried saving it as a .jpg. So I searched my system for .tif files, found a few (not very many, actually), and tried them out. Some of them worked, but I did find one that recreated this same error. Funny thing is, .jpg seems to be the only format that causes an error. I was able to successfully save the errant .tif file as a .png, .gif, .tga, .bmp, and .tif (I didn't try any other formats). Also, if you open the .tif and save it as a .tif, close the window, and open the new .tif, saving as a .jpg works just fine. I'm not very familiar with .tif, or what it takes to save it, but the client needs to resize many .tif images, and having to resave every one, close each window, THEN resizing and saving as a .jpg isn't really a viable option. The .tif file that's been causing problems is 3.11MB, and I can't upload it to my Photobucket album, so if you'd like to take a look for yourself, just ask and I can e-mail it to ya.
