pn_user Posted January 19, 2006 Share Posted January 19, 2006 When saving a file, it would be nice to have more options. Both the TIF and PNG formats support a wide range of color depths and grayscale. For each of these, it would be nice to have options when saving files for different color depths and gray scale. Many pictures and images I work on are intended for the web, and thus size can be a significant factor. The fact that Paint.NET saves everything in 24 bit (except GIF which is 8 bit by default and TGA for which you allow options of 24 bit and 32 bit) doesn't make it useful for some images. For these same images, it would be nice to be able to reduce the color depth, or adjust to grayscale, within the program too, so that one can see the resulting image before saving. My current work around is to use IrfanView (an image viewer, but not an editor), as this free program works great with just about any image format and supports different color depths and coverting between formats. If you could marriage some of the format capabilities of IrfanView with Paint.NET, I think you'd expand the programs applicability significantly.
