    PNGs open as BMPs on the Forum

    Hi Ambient Team,

    If a painting is posted as a PNG, but is too large to be self opening, then when it is opened by clicking, it becomes a BMP.

    In Art Supplies I posted a couple of PNGs as Bob Ross canvases. Thin paint coat.

    But this of course fails if they turn into BMPs on the Forum.

    Can this be fixed or is it built into the PHP software?

    This is kindof an Internet Browser problem, rather than a forum problem. The browser opens the image in a new window, as an inline BMP.

    However all is not lost! If you see the 'download' paper-clip icon in a post, you can right-click on it, and choose 'Save as' to save it as the original PNG (or whatever).

    "Sure - how hard can it be?"

    Thanks Andy,

    I'll post that within the Bob Ross bit of Art Supplies.
