Supported datatypes

The EAS can take all file types, but it supports thumbnails/previews and metadata for the following formats:

IMAGE

Pictures are well supported. Basic support is provided by ImageMagick, for comments to individual formats, the List of supported Formats. In the EAS, however, the format must also be known in order to display the image (IMAGE) to be recognized.

Support for raw formats (including cr2, crw, nef, orf, raw and partial tiff) is of dcraw.

Vector formats are processed very rudimentarily in this class. To count ai and eps. More vector graphic formats are currently available unsupported.

If the support is not good (+++), then there is either single problem files (++) or here is still general for the format minor, known problems (+).
