    odd little problem with discoloration and pixelating

    i was hoping someone could help me out but i've noticed sometimes that when i'm working in painter i'll notice some of my portions of my colors have changed and they seem to get pixelated. i only seem to have noticed it happen after i've made multiple save as files. i usually save as .psd. dunno if any of this has to do with that. another thing that may be making the difference is the res i'm working at (which is usually around 200 dpi). maybe it's just the brush i was using (oil pastels) or maybe i just need to reinstall Painter 9. here's an example of what i'm talking about (that pink wasn't originally there). this was done on the canvas layer.

    Hi,

    As I recall, in Painter IX, there was a color shift problem when saving to PSD from Painter, that got worse each time the file was saved again in PSD format.

    I think that problem was solved with either the Painter IX 9.1 Update or the Painter IX.5 Update. If you purchased Painter IX, you'll need to install both of the updates to get to Painter IX.5 which I think is the best version so far.

    Maybe others who can remember will confirm this or give you some other suggestions.

    Good luck!

    Save as RIFF unless you absolutely must use PSD
