Feature Request: Bar-Removal.

Recommended Posts

Precisely. Paint.NET might be able to extrapolate (read: guess) what they're supposed to be, but restoring lost data is next to impossible.

Better to save in a lossless image format. (OptiPNG is great for this)


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.

I intended it for GIFs on Wikipedia. That's what I meant, extrapolate them.
extrapolation is the process of constructing new data points outside a discrete set of known data points. It is similar to the process of interpolation, which constructs new points between known points, but its results are often less meaningful, and are subject to greater uncertainty.

Basically, you want to be able to re-build them, right?

Just keep a copy of the .gif and .png. It makes more sense that Rick finding a way to implement this into the .gif dialog stuff:

You can't very well...

Because its already lost some pixels in saving, it can't regain them.

You could try Surface Blur or Median, but that may ruin it, especially if the graphic is small. GIFs already have a low quality so you may just have to accept the image as is.

Or redraw it.

Added emphasis to quote.

Tell you what - Post a link to two or three of the GIFs you need to restore, and I'll try and work a little magic. If I come up with a repeatable method, I'll post it here.
