DMcCunney Posted August 2, 2011 Share Posted August 2, 2011 I've recently encountered a weird quirk in Paint.NET. I run v3.58 under WinXP SP3, on a 2.6 ghz Core Duo system with 4GB RAM. Paint.NET is primarily used for photo retouching - image cropping and resize, and brightness/contrast/color value adjustments. I normally use an ancient version of the ACDSee image viewer app as my image browser, and call Paint-NET from a right-click menu to edit the image I'm looking at. The CoreDuo CPU is a recent upgrade. The previous CPU was a single-core Pentium. The quirk I've encountered only happened after the CPU swap. I'll be editing an image in Paint.NET, called from ACDSee. When things are as I wish, I do a Save. Sometimes (but not always), Paint.NET will complain that it can't save the image, and that there was an error saving the file. The workaround is to do a Save As under a different file name. I have no idea what might be going on. It doesn't happen all the time, and I haven't seen a pattern to when it does happen. It's not a critical issue, and it's easy enough to work around, but I'd be happier if I understood what was going on. Has anyone else encountered this problem? ______ Dennis Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
