I've seen stories that GDI+ reports that every format is a bitmap. I
didn't have the opportunity to test it myself because
GetImageEncoders() isn't in my GDI+ DLL.

Unfortunately, they're not present in at least my copy of WinXP. It's
why I do a TRY_LOOKUP() on GetImageEncoders and GetImageEncodersSize,
and why GetEncoderClsid() has a fallback branch that uses hard-coded

As would I. You can definitely do it with the existing architecture,
albeit a little awkwardly. The combination wouldn't have support for
any new formats dynamically added to GDI+. But in all honesty, I think
adding new formats is pretty uncommon and that 99% of people just have
the builtin set.

Thanks for working on this patch, Tor. I really appreciate it.
