Is filetype 'aliasing' possible?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I have used paint.net a few times specifically to view rgb565 images using the Rgb565_Bitmap filetype plugin. The question I have is this, my images are of type *.raw and to view them in paint.net I need to change them to *.rgb565, otherwise I get "The image type is not recognized, and cannot be opened." error. I have literally thousands, specifically 281200 files each of type *.raw. It would be nice to have some method of thumbnailing them, but I would settle for double click opening a *.raw file as a *.rgb565 file. 

 

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions to achieve what I am hoping for?

 

Regards,

 

Graham

Have you tried all the RAW file plugins?  There are several available.  Some work, some don't - this would be a neater solution for you than conversion to RGB565.

If you find one that works, please let us know which one.

 

Here's a list of the main plugins: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/20090-plug-in-to-convert-raw-nef/?p=337567  The top one seems to be the most successful.

A thumbnail handler be simple to create, but it would only work if all of the images have the same dimensions.

Attached to the bottom of this post is a RGB 565 filetype plugin that handles *.raw files, like the RAWFile plugin it will show a dialog to set the image dimensions.

 

The site you linked to in your first post is an illegal compilation of plugins from this forum, see Megalo = VIRUS! for more information.

The RAW files that the OP is referring to are RGB565 encoded files with a *.raw extension.
