Citing a passage regarding the "image parade" on Peter Sikking's blog post:What I find very intriguing is that the notion of which file is open starts to blur.
It should be noted that many plug-ins and filters provide dialogs in which the user is prompted (via drop-down lists) to select images/layers/channels/paths from amongst those available in currently opened images. It would seem unwieldy for the code to have to open previously closed files to search for these potential images/layers/channels/paths every time such a dialog is presented (and the resulting drop-down lists could contain LOTS of entries in which the user holds no interest). Thus it may be necessary to retain the concept of "opened images" and provide a means of distinguishing unopened images in the image parade (if they are to be included).
you are pointing out a serious spanner in the works. and if I do not find a way to houdini me out of that one, then that will be it for fuzzy... --ps founder + principal interaction architect man + machine interface works http://mmiworks.net/blog : on interaction architecture
