Maybe this is an age old question: I used to store files in TIFF format as long as layer is the only information I wish to keep (80% of the times). I always think that is better then keeping PSD format which is a special format of special software (Photoshop) and may be unusable on computers without photoshop.
Now I wish to do the same on GIMP, I saved in TIFF format, but the layers are merged. Is it possible to save as TIFF format while keeping layers (and its alpha channel)? If not, isn't it better to keep this feature as an option (e.g. ask user if they wish to save in multi-layer format) or preference (e.g. always save as multi-layer format, unless user set preference not to do so). I don't wish to keep a lot of GIMP format image in our company's document management system, because other colleagues cannot use it with their Photoshop. However they feel fine with multi-layer TIFF (even if they know text layers are converted to bitmap: that's not a big headache for them thanks to our entry level use of Photoshop/GIMP. They only want the layer information including alpha channel) _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
