.png saving problem with PDN 3.10 Beta+Official version


Recommended Posts

It seems that often, when I save a file as [filename].png, it ends up being corrupt. Now I always have to make .pdn files in case. Usually, copy pasting it in MS Paint saves it properly, but MS paint only handles transparency on .gif files, so all the transparent parts become white. And I don't want to save them as .gif, because of the dithering it causes. It's nothing caused by multiple layers when saving as .png, because I tried flattening before saving. Thanks for all help provided :)

I've never had a problem with this. Have you tried a delete+reinstall?

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.

No...

@Rick: Well usually, I just save them as filename.png. I'm going to try with the drop down box, and see if it works.

It seems to work with the drop down box. Will post if it happens again, I'll try and see now if saving as [filename].png works, instead of using the drop-down box.

By the way BoltBait, soften portrait is ou officially now I think. You can remove portrait from your signature :wink:

Edit: Oh, I think I see what's wrong... I tried to save a .jpg file in .png. the file name was "something".png, while the drop-down list made it save in .jpg. In previous version though, I think it made the extension in the file name have priority. Which makes sense, no one would type the file extension in the end if it wasn't the file type they want.

In the save dialog, .PDN is the default. So when you type .PNG, it tries to save a .PDN with a .PNG extension. You might try renaming the corrupted files to a .PDN extension and seeing if PdN will open them.

Rick, would it be difficult to always add the appropriate extension if it doesn't exist in the filename box?

I second that if it's possible.

No. Way. I've just seen Bob. And... *poof!*—just like that—he disappears into the mist again. ~Helio

Rick, by always adding the extension you might get files named:

MyPicture.jpg.pdn

But, they would never fail to open.
