MP 0.38 Win: Some images NOT drawing in "Spotlight" -weird

Post by budz45 »

Hi,

The majority of image files I have tried (lots) have worked just perfectly with "Spotlight" feature in drawing spotlight. I have even created spotlights on an 6870x5028 resolution pic :o (on my dual-core Win 7 machine) with normal results.

However, and this is weirdly, two pictures I load in XnView MP is not allowing me to create the actual spotlights (spotlight toolbar + functions display as normal) but spotlight cannot be drawn.

To reproduce,

download this .zip,
cantankerous little devils.zip
..extract and load either one of the two image files in MP and try to draw a spotlight with the selection

..and this is my xnview.ini settings file (just to be sure)
xnview.zip
Could the issue be related to the image dimensions/pixels, or could it be the specific colors or each picture.. hmmm

Good luck!

tested on both Win XP sp3 & Windows 7 sp1
