Can't open large bitmaps

Recommended Posts

First time using paint.net

Tried to open a large bitmap (6,655KB) and get the error:

There was an unspecified error when opening the file.

The file opens fine with MS Paint and MS Office Picture Manager.

I can also open smaller bitmaps and JPEGs just fine with paint.net

The file might contain some bad info. Some programs, especially MS ones, ignore bad data, but PdN might very well get confused by it. Try loading the file into a program that does load it, (you said MSPaint works fine) and then save a new copy using that. Then try opening the new copy in PdN.

18+? Wow that's large. But, all the same, I'm able to open bmp's of any size in a timely fashion.

v An excellent open–source strategy game—highly recommended.
