Paint

file Paint cannot read this file. This...

 
  Description  
     
 

The paint program does not recognize the file as a bitmap. It is either an unsupported graphics format or the file is corrupted. The Paint program does not use the file extension to determine the graphics format, but looks for key signatures and structures to validate the formats it supports.
