Copyright © Ulf Engstrand 2014.

This is a plugin that lets you load and save Amiga (.info) files.


Copy AmigaIcon.dll and AmigaIcon.palettes to your Paint.NET FileTypes folder.

Main features
* Load and save classic Amiga OS 1.0-3.1 icons up to 16 colors palette
    - Automatic palette recognition based on number of bitplanes and version
    - Automatic color remapping to new palette on save (useful for conversions)
    - Some common palettes included such as MagicWB and ClassicWB's FreshIcons
    - Additional palettes can be added in the AmigaIcon.palettes file
    - Palette selector is opened if multiple palette alternatives are found
* Load and save classic Amiga OS 3.5/3.9 icons up to 256 true colors
    - Supports compression/decompression (run-length encoding)
    - Supports transparent colors
    - Automatically creates an Amiga OS 1.0-3.1 icon for compatibility (make sure to select palette)
* Set icon type, stacksize and highlight mode
* Preserves icon tooltypes and default tool data

If there is any interest I may implement support for NewIcons. Please send bug reports or feature requests to me.

I can highly recommend the LowColor plugin by jxp for reducing color depth.
