Gigspixel won't process png files

(Margaret Weir) #1

When I try to process a png file in gigapixel, it goes through the motions, but has a message on the blank finished file, saying it doesn’t appear to support this type of file.

Do you think you could send us the image so we can take a look at it?

I cannot get any photo (PNG or JPG) with an embedded color profile of sRGB IEC61966-2.1 to output as a PNG; A.I. Gigapixel 3.0.3, crashes every time. If the original photo was saved without a color profile, it outputs to a PNG just fine.
I can get Gigapixel 3.0.3, with said color profile, to output as a JPG or TIFF without incident.
Gigapixel 3.0.3 can output a photo, that was saved as a TIFF, to a PNG, but the resulting PNG is stripped of its Color Profile. All this happens whether, the original photo was saved from Corel PhotoPaint, Photoshop CS3, or Afinity Photo. This happens whether “Use Deducted Graphics Processing” is checked or not checked.

In response to Margaret, try processing a PNG without an embedded color profile.

I will when I get back to my computer, Joe.

Thank you, Leslie. I’ll try that when I get home to my computer.

Sorry, Joe. My life is not my own. Here are a couple of pngs - a professional one I bought, and one of my own. For now, what I’m doing, which is not ideal, is allowing Gigapixel to process them as jpgs, then overlaying the original png and selecting the pixels. Doesn’t work if the edges aren’t 100% clear.

Thanks for your help, Joe.
