PNG supported?

Post by xtine » 04 Aug 12 8:55

Is .png supported on PS for mac?

I have a mix of jpg and art work with transparency in .png. Other DAM software have issues with the png alpha channel transparency, since there is no trial version available of PS it is essential for me to know if PS also has an issue with that or that png is hopefully fully supported.

Any input is appreciated.

A little test in my Windows Alfa (Beta?) version shows that thumbs / previews handle transparency correctly. Since PNG format does support embedded metadata IDI-PS creates an XMP sidecar file. I have no reason to assume it's any different in the Mac version.
