IMG Viewer is a small tool which is capable of displaying the IMG files of W:A, WWP and W2 (W2 has not been tested yet, but the code for handling W2 images has already been written). It was programmed by using only the file format information given on this wiki, especially the decompressing algorithm written by Pisto. The related articles are linked at the bottom.

Main Features

  • Displaying IMG files and their settings including the palette
  • Converting IMG files to more common file formats like BMP, PNG and JPEG

A shell integration for picture previews in the Windows Explorer was available in but has been cut from because it didn't work correctly on most computers.

Planned Features

  • Saving images without dismissing the original palette
  • The ability to edit images and save them (at least for uncompressed images and without changing the palette)
