Here's an idea for a "Photoshop" plug-in: PSD file format. Support both ways, opening and saving, making use, if needs be, of the Import sub-menu of the File menu. Even if you have to code it so it opens the newest SDK but only saves in, say, PSD for/from Photoshop 7 or CS1, that's fine. I don't think all that highly of the .pfi file format (never thought that I, coming from a Mac background, would find myself using a Windows graphics editor with a "one-horse charlie" proprietary file format; not in this post 2000 Pro era, anyways), yet it appears to be the only one you can save something in (in Studio X 10.0 at any rate) that supports layers.

You can bet your last Euro that if one went looking on the Photoshop side of things for an import plug-in for the .pfi format, it would likely as not come in some overpriced package with a lot of other software one would seldom make any use of. That is, if such a thing exists.

PS: In case anyone's interested, I found an .8bf version (all of 50KB in size) of the "Variations" edit window from Photoshop that works perfectly in the version of Studio mentioned above in my semi-rant. PM me if you'd like a copy emailed to you.

There are countless plug-ins that provide ways to enhance and change an image beyond the set of tools that are built into Photoshop.

As it happens, XnView 1.97.4 (not the Multi-Platform beta) opens .pfi format as multi-page images [ CORRECTION:single-page/single-layer]. As it's a viewer, there's not much you can do with them in that app, but there's the logical possibility that XnView could convert .pfi to .psd. The utility of this extra step would pretty much rely on whether "multi-page" translates to "layers." If XnView saves .psd as single-layer (and Pierre's good with his warning dialogs, so it would be the work of a moment to find out) files, then the whole thing falls down.

Which brings me back to the thrust of my comments in the earlier post. .pfi is aok for folks who just use PFS, but in terms of an alternative to .psd or .xcf, it's a dead end.
