Yes. You must create a folder "Plugins" and put the libwebp.dll in it.
c:\Program Files\XnView\ShellEx\Plugins\libwebp.dll
Should I restart the PC for that to work?
No, no restart required
Should I copy the dll to some Windows system folder?
No
It worked like a charm. Thanks a lot!

XnView Shell Extension doesn't work inside dialog boxes of some apps. Vector Magic, for instance.

But Corel PHOTO-PAINT's dialogs show the Shellex thumbs.

Is there a fix for that? TIA.

Have you tested all the commands in context menu?
Because I had a similar problem (with other software), but the problem came from the first software (which displays the dialogue) and not from the software which should be called from context menu.

From inside the dialog box of Vector Magic (the first software) I could perform a lot of actions, like: rename, copy files, rotate an image, open a folder in an new window, open a file with several programs, including one that wasn't in the context menu list, that is, I could add it to the Open with menu from inside the first software.

Only the XnShell thumbs aren't there.

Good health!
The idea is wonderful! But alas, the quality of Resize is poor.
Compared to how Photoshope does it, the difference is obvious.
