By the file extension.

There are no settings really 'set'. If there are no diff tools set for
the image file extensions, TSVN simply uses TortoiseIDiff.
If however there are other diff tools set for those extensions, then
those tools are used instead.

Basically, everything that the IPicture interface can handle. And if
GDIPlus is installed on the system (default for XP and later, available
from MS for other systems), then all images GdiPlus can handle too.

That means:
wmf, jpg, bmp, ico, dib, emf files on all systems.
png with GdiPlus installed.

Sure, I could use multiple libraries for every image format out there.
But I like to keep the tool lean (hey, it's only 78kBytes!).
