Suggestion: ECW support

Recommended Posts


I am using Paint.NET quite a lot with different image formats. One of the few formats I use is ECW. These ECW format is not supported in Paint.NET. So first I have to convert :( these images and after that I can load them in Paint.NET.

Is it possible to support ECW files in Paint.NET?

Paint.NET is very nice guys!!!! :)

Best regards,

Looks like it may be patent/legally encumbered. That doesn't stop someone else from writing a plugin to support it though. (although we need to get those plugin docs written...)
