DELUXE PAINT SAVING WIN 8

Post IP: rejestrowane!

Hi all, I am able to save my deluxe paint images to my windows 8 desktop, but irfanview will not open it, no program will open it, all come up header unknown, irfanview says to check unicode under language, this did not help, have renamed file and type; no luck. Any help appreciated.

This might not be what you want, but have you considered simply taking a screen capture, pasting it into your image editor of choice and saving it from there? I did this only yesterday ( https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CMNqBGpWcAEXgIl.png:large )

Hey thanks for the info, I did try both of these things; no luck on windows 8, But I will try again, may try it on my win 7 system as well. I will let you know. I just love deluxe paint, still not a paint program I like better for bitmap graphics, one of the few paint programs that you can draw a circle starting from its center. Most start from an ever moving edge, which is near impossible to work with. Just imagine if this paint program was still in development, or at least fully done for windows. Amiga was the best machine ever made. Many fond , fond hours spent painting , and making music in med.

Do you have Irfan View Plugins package installed? This package contains coders for IFF file type.

With this you can open Deluxe Paint files and save it as JPG, PNG or whatever you want.
