The big problem with writing a support library for photoshop files is not that it's hard to do -- it's a moderate amount of work, and then some because the public specs aren't complete, but the real problem is that there's nothing public beyond version 6; everything after is closed and forbidden. It's better to spend time getting something together that's open, extensible and fits in with the emerging open document landscape. -- Boudewijn Rempt http://www.valdyas.org/fading/index.cgi
