paint.net file associations

Backgrounds have to be .jpg files

Or GIF, BMP, or PNG files, though PNG doesn't look good when resized or stretched by Windows via Desktop Properties.

In my defense, I'm still thinking of Vista. (I seem to have forgotten many of the ways of XP)

Strangely enough, Vista only allows .bmp and .jpg to be set as backgrounds. >_>

I guess it is because it was coded for Paint.NET only and to be view with windows picture and fax viewer. Think of it as a project file only for raw data (Code) that needs to be compiled into a image file in order to work as a image. Like a program done in C# that are only data files till compiled into a running program.

Don't worry about it my friend as Vista wont be here for much longer. it was just another ME that MS need to sell. Windows 7 (Codename: Vienna) will be replacing Vista sometime around 2009 & 2010. They were planing it before Vista even came out.
