    I thought it was builded like that. I don’t even remember if at least once any screenshot was opened instead of downloaded using any browser.

    What an awesome tip, just checked my new plugin’s screenshots and sure enough I got the download prompts. Didn’t even know it was doing that. Thanks!

    Now it would be nice if those images opened in some kind of Modal instead of on a new blank screen…

      Oh, I see I cannot edit my comment anymore? Ah well, an addition then.

      If you’re using Cornerstone (I believe Mac only?) to commit your plugins, then you can go to Get Info (CMD + I) and then switch to the tab Properties, where you can change the MIME Type with a dropdown.

      Sometimes they do. But unfortunately it’s not very often …

    otto was a great help with this when we were looking into it a couple weeks ago. see: https://twitter.com/Otto42/status/550122425464004608 and https://twitter.com/Otto42/status/550122819170729984

    perhaps a simple script could be written for changing the MIME type? that could be super helpful for future plugin developers.

      That would be an ideal solution. Sometimes I forget to change the mime type of my screenshots. It’s not that it’s difficult, it’s just an extra step we have to remember we pushing to the repo.

    Definitely a great reminder. Thanks! Now to remember to do it and keep track of it as well.

    This has been driving me mad for about a year now. I’ve cross referenced readme.txt files and image extensions but couldn’t see why my screenshots were downloading while others opened in a new tab. And here’s the answer, finally :) Thanks Jeff!

    Anyone knows how to do this in SmartSVN, properties mime type is grayed out on image.
