Unable to open file


Recommended Posts

This evening, I spent a few hours working on an image in paint.net, saving periodically along the way as a .pdn. When I was finished, I flattened the image and saved it as a .png. Now, however, neither file will open. The .pdn won't open in paint.net and the .png won't open in anything. Both files are too big to attach. Any help on this would be appreciated, because I really don't want to go through the trouble of making that image again.

The ".pdn file" was actually a PNG file with the wrong extension.

Be sure to choose the save filetype from the drop-down menu,

not by changing the extension manually.

I couldn't get this one to download from min.us. (http://min.us/mveVanc The PNG)

If you like you can upload it again to another site, like this one:

tinyupload.com

Put it into a zipfile first, if possible.

No thanks, I won't trouble you further. Thanks for the help, and I do remember trying to manually change the extension out of habit, but realizing my mistake after the fact and doing it the right way... I guess that didn't help.
