Paint Cannot Save This File Error In Windows 8

Windows Paint is given error message that looks somehow comprehensive after reading the warning message displayed on the screen about the error. Before this time the work one has been doing is perfect without any cause for alarm. Trying to save the file in JPG, TIFF,etc it saves quite well. Due to the nature of the size and uploading of file online going with large size photos can be drudgery and time consuming. It  is very important, most especially, when one is going to get the images across on time to make sure they are converted to other format that compresses images to small size without loosing much of the rich quality. 

Notwithstanding, the PNG format saves photo images in smaller sizes than JPG format, with higher resolution as well. It is almost in equivalent to  high resolution one can get in BMP image files.

Save was interrupted, so your file has not been saved', that left one thinking about what must have gone wrong some where along the line.
