XPM File Type plugin

Recommended Posts

Having need for XPM support in Paint.NET, I wrote a plugin to read and write XPM files. It's reasonably robust but doesn't handle every XPM option, most of which I've never seen in the while anyway! So last night I sat down to learn C# (I'm a C++ and Java guy really) and wrote this plugin. All I can say is that it works for me.

The source code is available for those who want it.



Moderators Note:  This plugin has been updated.  Find the most recent version here:

I have reverse this DLL to correct a bug on non square image, and Unix/Windows text file format


I have rewritten almost everything (probably reversed from somewhere else anyway)


This DLL is to be put on the FileTypes directory.


It will register the "X Pixmap" file format for .xpm files.


If it can help someone...


PS : for the source code...ILSpy is your friend.


I have updated the plugin for Paint 4.0
