Corrupted Windows 7 Paint File RRS feed

  • Question

  • I drew a picture on Paint and edited it on Gimp. I tried closing Gimp when I was finished but it didn't work. Instead it froze and turned black. I closed everything and logged off and logged back in. I opened Gimp again and it said "Error while reading 'C:\Users\KATERA\Pictures\Amber Legend-Merry Christmas!.png'. File corrupted?" If it is corrupted, how do I fix it? Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. (Sorry if I click the wrong category and forums. I just signed up.)

  • Hi,


    It seems that the picture is corrupted when you edited it via Gimp. Please understand, Gimp is not a Microsoft’ product, I haven’t much information about it.


    I suggest that you could try to contact the software provider to check this issue.
