YO! WPG will not save edited pictures

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Music, Pictures and Video' started by ms-whaddabunchacrap, Mar 22, 2008.

  1. We have Vista Home Premium. After editing a picture I get the message
    "Changes to this picture can't be saved because it's no longer available. You
    might have lost your network connection or the picture might have been
    deleted." I am not on a network, photos are on the 'C' drive and they have
    most definitely have NOT been deleted. What gives? This used to work fine.
    Perhaps one of the 4 dozen Vista "updates" screwed it up?
    This is the first problem I have encountered in Vista but it is annoying as
    other photo editing programs do not work as well as WPG as far as lightening
    up under- exposed photos. HELP!

    Yo! WPG automatically saves changes you make. There is no action required on
    your part to save a picture.

    WPG is an image viewer with minimal photo editing features.

    If you're interested in a free full-featured photo editor check out:
    Paint.NET Yo!

  3. So why is this message displayed? And where does WPG save these changes?
    After the message displays the image returns to it original state. Are the
    changes retained or not?

    How are you attempting to save it?

    When you close WPG your changes are saved to the same location you opened
    the image from.

  5. After making changes, upon forwarding to the next picture, the "saving" box
    briefly shows and then the "Changes to this picture can't be saved........."
    message appears. Also when attempting to make a copy of the changed picture,
    same thing happens. As I mentioned earlier, I do remember this working
    correctly at some time in the past. I just noticed this defect in the last
    couple of weeks.
    Thanks for your attempt to help.

    I suggest you use a "real" photo editing program like paint.net.
