Re: [Gimp-developer] Megapixels counter

There's a small thing that I missed in GIMP for some time. That thing is a megapixel counter to add to window title or status. Hi! IMO we need to make it easier than editing a complex format-string to get this info in the window title. Well… I haven't thought of that, to be frank,
