BLPLook
Version: 2.0 (Installer)
by: Foxlit [More]
BLPLook is a Quick Look generator for .blp files, providing a preview of the BLP image in Finder and other applications supporting Quick Look. Quick Look is a feature of Leopard; BLPLook requires Mac OS 10.5.

Note that BLPLook only previews the images, and does not convert them to another format.

Installation instructions
The default download contains an installer package that automatically installs the quick look plugin in a system-wide location. This does, however, require administrative privileges.
Version 2.0
* Added an Intel 64-bit version of the plug-in.
* Thumbnails may now generated from lower-resolution mipmap images.
* Updated BLP decoder to add support for more encodings, improve performance.

BLPView performs a similar function on Windows Vista/7.

I use XNView - seems to view and do thumbs.

Comes in handy when using AI-Art and browsing for textures you want to slightly modify.

no idea about windows ... but :
1. it'd need to support drop in file list views.
2. it'd need to support custom thumbnailer binaries.

I'd rather like a thumbnail generater too, but I don't know enough about explorer plugins to make one.
any chance we can get a new link to the plugin? as of 04/30/2010, the old link is giving a 404 error. (for non-tech geeks, its the "sorry, the requested page does not exist" error.)

The question is really whether those applications/frameworks define a sensible plug-in architecture that is well documented somewhere -- QuickLook does an awesome job of isolating image-generation code from the hooks required to integrate it the plug-in into the framework. I don't actually have a copy of Photoshop to test against, so that particular request seems unlikely.

You probably want to get a more malleable format out of a .blp on a mac; personally, I tend to spend more time looking for specific built-in graphics than editing them, hence the QL plugin. I can probably repackage the conversion code in a command line utility to simply let you get PNGs out of BLP.
Probably the easiest way to get a single BLP image converted to PNG is through http://www.wowprogramming.com/utils/blp2png -- simply upload it.
