+afterimage.vim
+==============
+
+Edit ICO, PNG, and GIF icons. No really. They're converted with
+[ImageMagick](http://www.imagemagick.org) to XPM, a plain text image
+format with beautiful syntax highlighting in GUI versions of Vim. Here,
+it's easier just to show you:
+
+![Beautiful syntax highlighting](https://raw.github.com/tpope/vim-afterimage/gh-pages/actionshot.png)
+
+And yes, I did say edit. Obviously you're not going to be uninstalling
+Photoshop anytime soon, but for stupid simple tweaks, it gets the job
+done.
+
+Oh, and it can also handle PDFs (with
+[pdftk](http://www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-the-pdf-toolkit/)),
+Word Documents (read-only, with [Antiword](http://www.winfield.demon.nl/)),
+and Mac OS X plist files.
+
+Installation
+------------
+
+If you don't have a preferred installation method, I recommend
+installing [pathogen.vim](https://github.com/tpope/vim-pathogen), and
+then simply copy and paste:
+
+ cd ~/.vim/bundle
+ git clone git://github.com/tpope/vim-afterimage.git
+
+Once help tags have been generated, you can view the manual with
+`:help afterimage`.
