Image editor prefered applications?

My daily 2 cents request: how about adding an "Image editor" entry under "Preferred Applications"?

If I can push my luck a bit further: default it to "Pinta Image Editor"



I think this would conflict with the default "Image Viewer" preference. PNGs, JPGs, TIFFs, SVG, WebP (etc) would compete. There is XCF and PSD amongst other formats, but installing an editor should have already associated those formats.

If you wish for graphic editors to be opening regular images, you can change the default association by right clicking on that type of file and setting it from the Open With tab.

Does Pinta support Ubuntu 18 or 20?
