Raw Image Loader is a GIMP 1.1 plug-in which allows loading arbitrary bit-mapped data into the GIMP. It supports 24-bit RGB, Planar RGB, RGBA, and indexed data. Two types of indexed palettes are supported (standard RGB style and the BGRX palette used by Windows bitmaps). Latest versions also allow saving to raw RGB, Planar RGB, and indexed formats.
Release Notes: This release includes lots of rewrites to increase readability and improve modular support, improved load times for RGB images of depth 1, 3, or 4, updated indexed palette handling, and added some basic error checking to the raw save function.
Release Notes: Handling of Planar RGB format (where each color plane is stored sequentially in the file), and new routines for saving raw files as standard RGB, planar, or indexed with a palette.
Release Notes: Initial freshmeat announcement.
