Compatibility Chart

I have tested ThumbView with all possible format variations I could get hold of. I prefer to convert my test image for testing, so I know what the result will look like and what to expect from dimension and bpp. I was able to test that .mdl and .wal do "work", but I haven't been able to convert my test image to those so I can test the accuracy of the test.

I still need to convert my test image to these formats, and all their variations: dcx, mdl, mng, pcd, pix, pgm, pxr, wal. Also, if you have a non-listed variation of an image format listed here, let me know.

If you have any tips or if you can convert for me, please contact me!
