Unable to open .PDN files [SOLVED - removed .jpg extension]

Recommended Posts

I saved my old artwork i made yesterday on an older patch of paint.net. I saved the file as a .pdn and installed the latest update to paint.net. I now cannot open the file on paint.net or any other image viewing software as they do not recognize the .pdn file format.


Here is the error details:


System.ArgumentException: Parameter is not valid.
   at System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(Stream stream, Boolean useEmbeddedColorManagement, Boolean validateImageData)
   at PaintDotNet.Data.JpegFileType.OnLoad(Stream input) in d:\src\pdn\paintdotnet\src\PaintDotNet\Data\JpegFileType.cs:line 78
   at PaintDotNet.FileType.Load(Stream input) in d:\src\pdn\paintdotnet\src\Data\FileType.cs:line 477

Check the file name and extension carefully. I suspect you may have appended a .jpg extension.

Feel free to upload the file if my hunch is incorrect.
