fregal,

I'm currently implementing PSD support into my GraphicEx library (see also: www.lischke-online.de/Graphics.html). This library supports many other image formats as well (tif, pcx, cel, gif, tga etc. etc.) and works with TPicture the usual way...

Since the PSD format is not very compicated (so far as the pure image is concerned) I believe to have the import ready between this weekend and the next one. I hope this is not too late for you?

Ciao, Mike

Hi Pete,

good news! A new version of GraphicEx is available for download at www.lischke-online.de/Graphics.html. I had a bit trouble with the CMYK and CIE L*a*b* color schemes because they are differently stored with psd and pdd files. But now this is solved and I hope you have much with GraphicEx.

Ciao, Mike

Mike,

Your job is fantastic! It's work fine.
Finally: What about MULTICHANNEL color mode support?

P.S. Wish you many points :)

Pete, if multi channels are of use then it is probably worth to be implemented. But the docs I have don't say anything about this format. I'm not sure how to proceed...

Mike,

I try to read multichannel PSD file as
RGB and CMYK with your library. It allows to view picture, but it looks very strange. I look into some programs: Paint Shop Pro and GIMP does not support multichannel PSD files, but ACDSee and Irfan's View does.

WBR, Pete.

I already implemented multi channel view. Actually, I tried to view them as RGB and obviously Photoshop stores an image summary as RGB image, so this worked. I don't want to update my online files yet, so if you are interested please send me a mail (public@lischke-online.de) and I will mail back the new lib. Actually, you can do the necessary changes yourself. There are three case statements where the image types are distinguished. Take in all three cases PSD_MULTICHANNEL into the same branch as PSD_RGB.

Ciao, Mike
