Save File Types.

Recommended Posts

Its brilliant paint.NET and I use it for ALL my computer graphics needs, but its a shame the lack of file types.

It'd be brilliant to have a few common (and possibly a Paint.NET specific) vector file format.

Its a shame when the detailed drawings loose their quality sometimes.

Paint.NET is a raster graphic editor. If you need a vector editor, perhaps you should look at inkscape.

I know you can only draw in raster graphics, but im finding uploading some larger images end up loosing quality in the upload to whatever it is, when they're raster graphics. So being able to save vectors would be useful for uploading files.

Use a different image upload service that doesn't mess with your image files.

What if you need to upload it by that service, for example its for something that service provides, yet if they support both vector&raster but raster graphics lose quality in upload, surely you'd want to upload it in vector. hence the request.

The two formats are very different, and are actually created in vastly different ways. You can't simply save a bit mapped image as a vector graphic. It just doesn't work like that.

Think of this like petrol vs. diesel. Both make vehicles run, but filling your petrol tank with diesel is doomed to fail.

Heed what BoltBait said...
