Visual-studio – Image editing in resources of visual studio 2008


I want to be able to edit an image (png file) from the resources folder of one of my projects in VS2008. But the resource editor in VS will only allow me to zoom in and out. As the images are 32 bit, VS also will not allow me to use the image editor toolbar to change this. I would like to know if anyone knows how i can edit the image via VS or an associated plugin that is safe to use with source control?!
Thanks in advance guys!

I don't think the VS resource editor supports editing PNG files (see this related question).

I'm not sure what you mean by "safe to use with source control" -- any image editor should fit the bill. Check out the file, locking it if necessary, then edit it with your favorite image editor, such as GIMP. When you're done, check in.
