  1. Can't save photo or image file with Paint.


    Good day. I recently added new jpg image files on my computer. I edited afterwards, when I try to save it, it gives me this Error: "Paint cannot save this file. Save was interrupted, so your file has not been saved". What can be the cause of this?


    Kind regards

    :)

  2. Cannot edit images when saved in Fresh paint

    Hi Kamila,

    As per the information, I understand that when you save an image drawn in Fresh Paint, you are unable to edit the image once saved.

    If the above is true, I suggest that you follow the steps below to save the image in a manner that will allow you to edit it.

    • To save your painting right click on fresh paint and click on
      Save as
      . You will get an option to select the location.
    • Select the location and save the painting.
    • When you reopen fresh paint you will be on the painting you used before closing fresh paint. If you do not get the painting, you may click on image and go to the location and select the image to edit.

    For added information on Fresh Paint refer to the FAQ below

    Note: Also applies to 10

    Hope this helps

    Regards
