Reopen image with encoding


When you open an image file with SublimeText it is displayed as a preview.

This is very convenient, but sometimes it would be convenient to view the image in binary or UTF-8, having a look at magic numbers and pixel values, for example. Unfortunately you cannot reopen the file with a different encoding, like you do with text files.

I know there are plug-ins that allow to do this, but couldn’t this be added to core functionality? Why have these options been disabled in the menu for some files?
