32-bit bitmaps

Recommended Posts

Nope. PNG is recommended instead -- which the VS icons are also available in.

BMP doesn't officially support a proper alpha channel, btw. 32-bit, yes, but with no specification for what that 4th channel is for. The GDI+ codecs don't even preserve it, iirc.

I tried writing a FileType plugin for it, but I got that darned "WindowsBase version" error

I'll get back to you after I fix that

edit: Ok here you go, I couldn't find any way to make PDN use this plugin for 32bit BMP's other than giving it a different extension, so you'll have to rename your BMP's to bmpx if you want to open them with this plugin.

It's not very well tested, but it worked with the 32bit BMP's from visual studio - at least for as much as I tested. It shouldn't work on any other type of bmp.

Edit: Removed zip. Please post in Plugins section instead.

I would write plugins, if I knew what kind of plugins were needed.. :(
