Add thumbnail support for image formats not natively supported in Windows

ThumbView is an open source application that enables image thumbnails support in Windows Explorer for filetypes that are not natively supported by Windows. Windows supports thumbnail view of only a handful of image file formats like JPEG, BMP, GIF and some others. Other image file formats which are not supported do not show a thumbnail preview in Windows Explorer. ThumbView will add support to a total of 19 image types - directly inside any Explorer window!

The supported file type includes:

Apart from a thumbnail preview ThumbView also provide a little tooltip window when the mouse pointer is hovered over the image thumbnails.

ThumbView comes in two editions:
ThumbView Full - Targeted at programmers that want total control over the installed Thumbnail Extractors and make their own.
ThumbView Lite - Targeted at normal users that just want to have thumbnails and info tips for 19 image types.

They both work on Windows XP/2003/2000, but may or may not work on Windows Vista.
