Suggestion for GFL

Post by Nikolay Raspopov »

Please add GetFormatBytesByIndex (int format_index, char* bytes, int* size_of_bytes) function that returns bytes used by GFL to detect image format. Example for Windows Bitmap it should return: "BM", 2; for Gif: "GIF8", 4; for Gimp XCF: "gimp xcf", 8. That simplify deep integration GFL in Internet Explorer as IMG-SRC-handler. I already tested some image formats and now my Internet Explorer may display psd-files embedded in html pages <img src="test.psd">. 8)
