I never tried the EXE-installer, so I don't know whether it works correctly. Both the EXE-installer and ZIP-archive contain the file PlugInst.inf, which holds the information required by Total Commanders internal plugin autoinstall feature.
You can reduce the wincmd.ini entries for the packer plugin to just one sentence using a dummy extension (see example below). This prevents any of Imagines supported graphic formats to be represented with a packer icon in Total Commanders filewindow, without the need to define a rule for each supported extension.
Code: Select all
img!=71,<path to imagine folder>\imagine.wcx64
Generally you are free to choose any file extension you like. I chose "img", so I know this entry represents the Imagine packerplugin, and added a trailing "!", as the likelihood to come across such a fileextension is rather sparse.
The value "71" in this config string represents the following packerplugin setup:
Code: Select all
PK_CAPS_NEW = 1 can create new archive
PK_CAPS_MODIFY = 2 can modify exisiting archive
PK_CAPS_MULTIPLE = 4 archive can contain multiple files
PK_CAPS_BY_CONTENT = 64 detect archivetype by content

Shouldn't I be able to select a bunch of images, ALT-F5 to one image file format (GIF,JPG,PNG...) and batch convert all the files without asking anything more, and not crashing?
I think image conversion via Imagines packerplugin is broken since quite some time, the author never got around to fix it, probably due to time constraints and/or lack of motivation. However you can always enter into any supported image format via pressing [Ctrl+PgDn] and copy the listed images out to PNG format via [F5], then you may continue to process the PNG images. Note that imagine also offers an internal batch conversion dialog, accessable via right-click menu when viewing an image, although it only converts the first image of Animated GIFs, so it's not quite that convenient regarding extraction of animated image formats.
