What is a PDN file?

The .pdn file extension is used for an image file format, which was developed by Rick Brewster. These PDN files are generated by the Paint.NET software, a Windows application for creating and editing raster graphics. This program was also created by Rick Brewster.Also known as Paint.NET image files, these PDN files contain digital raster graphics. The .pdn file format is the default output file format of digital graphics that are created, edited and saved in the Paint.NET program. This software can also be used to export these PDN files to other image file formats that are supported by this application.It's recommended to only use the Paint.NET application when opening and editing these .pdn files. This software can also open and edit other graphics file formats.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
