What is AFP?

Looking at the code, i found at some bugs (unchecked using scanline when image is null), i can easily fix that.
A multiimage files are not implemnted (the code is supposed to read first image, still i don’t see why it can crash, i’ll try to generate such file and see what happens)

Well, opening DDS file in Qt Creator is that «0.01%» usecase, but it’s quite convenient to do such thing. In case it doesn’t crash, though:(
Or you’re developing a game and you need a map/level qwidget-based editor - it definitely should be able to open (and save) such textures.
Or you’re writing an archiver for a game with a file preview.
I don’t like reimplementing a wheel but i constantly have to because of that 0.01% of that «features that nobody needs»:)
