PCX Viewing Support


Recommended Posts

Hey I remember PCX images, I even implemented some PCX read/write code in Turbo Pascal a long long time ago. I'll file a bug for it although I should let you know it's not a high priority at this point. Luckily the Move Selection tool went way faster than I expected so there does appear to be more time available for things like this (no guarantees though of course).

I've written a PCX file type plugin for Paint.NET which supports:

* Loading 1-, 2-, 4-, 8- and 24-bit color PCX files

* Saving 4- and 8-bit PCX files

The save path is based heavily on PDN's GIF file type handler. It uses the palettization code from PaintDotNet.Data.Quantize (a copy of the code shoved into a different namespace, since those classes aren't exposed) and the same UI (again, a copy; someday there might be more options).

Rick: Can you make OctreeQuantizer public?

I've tested it on various sample images I could online, but haven't used it thoroughly in content production cycles. If you want to give it a whirl, email me at inexorabletash@hotmail.com. If I get a thumbs-up from a few people I can stick the DLL/source up somewhere.

(I'm happy to hand this over to anyone else who's interested.)

This isn't the appropriate place to post this, Joshua. Please post this in the File Type coding forum. Please don't resurrect threads that are a year old.
