Opening more then one image at the time from Windows Explorer

Bug Description

In Pinta 0.6 on Windows XP I would like to open multiple pictures at the same time. I did:
1. File | Open
2. Click on image1.png, pressed <CTRL> key and click on image2.png.
Result: image1.png is deselected and image2.png is selected.
It would be nice if multiple pictures could be selected and opened with single action.

Also when marking multiple pictures in Windows Explorer and right click to select Open with | Pinta only single image is opened. So I am forced to open one picture after another.

I also did which will open multiple images passed in on the command line to Pinta, which may fix the second issue.

I tried selecting multiple images in Windows 7 and doing Open, but it opens a new copy of Pinta for each, so it looks like that behavior has changed from XP->7.

I have installed Pinta 0.8 on Windows XP and opening two pictures from Pinta works fine (I can see two pictures from Windows menu), so main problem solved. But if I select two pictures in Windows Explorer and open them with Pinta only the last picture is opened (from Windows menu there is only one picture listed).

I made a test with Pinta 1.1 on Windows XP sp3. I am marking this bug report as new again. The bug in Pinta 0.8 (releasing the actual fix) was partially solved. Actually there was two bugs reported in this bug report:
1. Pinta can't open multiple files from File | Open using <CTRL>+mouse click. --> fix commited and problem solved.
2. In Windows Explorer mark two files and right mouse click selecting Open with | Pinta --> problem remains.

I am marking this bug tag from Fix commited to New.
