Adding a new file format to PictView plugin

Post by Grzegorz » 27 Sep 2011, 22:11

Is it possible to add support for new graphic format to PictView plugin? I.e. Is there an interface in PictView that would allow to to that?

I had designed my own graphic format few years ago and I would like Atlap Salamander to be able to display thumbnails for that files. I could write a simple dll that exports one function which would read my own file format and convert it to a 32bit DIB or something like that for the PicView plugin.

But this would require a plugin interface for a plugin, so I wonder if there is such an interface within PictView plugin.

+1.

It will be easier to add specific DLL with proper interface.

I also ask if the autor of PictView plugin consider more *opened* interface like load all plugins from for example XnView if path to installation is set.
