What format did you save it in?

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. 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.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Hello, hello!

Sorry, I had to...

As for your problem, two things:

1) what version are you running (3.10, 3.20 Alpha 2...)? And;

2) did you insert a period into your file name, for example: test.1? If you did then that is the problem; Paint.NET saved it as a .pdn but with the 'extension' of whatever what after the period as well - it saved it as two different file types which would, naturally, conflict. Does this make sense?

I could be completely off with number 2), but it's worth a try. Also, isn't this more a Troubleshooting issue than a general discussion?

I also used Search as I recall a similar problem arising only recently, however the circumstance was different in the only topic I could find. Have a gander anyway:

EDIT: clarification.

I had a similar problem with a few saves recently.

The files were corrupted (some wouldn't open at all, some would open but with bands of 'noise' across).

My guess is that it was because I was saving directly to a usb drive (as it's only ever occured in that scenario).

I think that something in the save process corrupted the file; Wes' input somewhat confirms that.

Hi

This isnt really a reply but ive have the same problem i made this picture for a friend of mine and i was goin to show her and i cant open it other then in paint.net and i dont know ne thing about the PDN stuff you guys were talking about :? . So could someone walk me thro on what to do ^.^

This is slightly off topic, but the PDN file type is only viewable in Paint.NET. You need to save it as another filetype to be able to open it in another program.
