Allow Plugins to Override Standard File Types


Recommended Posts

I'm a newbie to the plugin creation, but I wanted to make my own plugin for animated GIF files. Trouble is that Paint.NET will always prefer the default GIF loader instead of my plugin. It seems like this is somewhat of an oversight as it prevents developers from creating plugins that give better loading and saving of standard file types.

One fairly easy solution would be to move the standard FileTypes to their own assemblies in the FileTypes folder such that a user could opt to remove a standard file type and add in a plugin that replaces it. Alternatively the application and plugin system could have some system for users to be able to choose from using the default FileType or the plugin.

Thanks!
