    Smile Plug-in dependent Save-as dropdown

    This may be just a pipe dream of mine, but if it were possible to make file formats in the save-as list dependent on the presence of the required plugins, a lot of frustration and complaints could be prevented. I know that other modifications have been suggested. This one would be of great benefit to inexpert users.
    Its: Belongs to "It"
    It's: Shortened form of "It is"

    Might work, but then you'll still have complaints that users were told IrfanView could "do it", yet they can't find the format in the list.

    Maybe we need to reverse the thinking on plugins. Since IrfanView already comes with a bunch, just make the standard install have them all. Then offer the lite version for people that don't want them, since they'll know what they are.
