Surely you are jesting? There are NO other editing applications capable of fully using this format. None. Zip. Zero. It may be open and documented (which is great) - but 3rd party support is still woefully lacking. Perhaps "proprietary" is not the right word here, I'll give you that, but it doesn't seem it would matter much if it was. Sure, there are some viewers, and some applications allow import or export, but natively opening and saving XCFs is not possible in any application that I know of - including, I might add, in Photoshop. Give me a TIFF any day, or a PNG - hell even BMPs are more widely supported. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XCF_%28file_format%29 -- VintageGimp (via www.gimpusers.com/forums) _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list List address: email@example.com List membership: https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list List archives: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-user-list
