Support WIC, windows photo gallery/viewer, windows explorer etc. so no more codec packs/programs are additionally needed for images.

Currently there are various codecs from first party companies for RAW support, as well as some packs distributed by Microsoft with varying support/overlap.

New formats like WebP, JpegXL aren't supported.

https://www.fastpictureviewer.com/codecs/ is the closest thing I've seen, but requires paying a license.

It would be helpful not needing to install a separate program, similar to how K-Lite enables windows media player to support different video and audio codecs.

Common image formats are already supported. Including WebP (non-animated).

For WIC support you can install this DirectShow filter:

This may get included in the future.

For images there are good free specialized viewers such as IrfanView.
