News nybble: Access Photoshop PSD files

Plus a new version of rRaw.

PhShpLyrs is an application from Anton Reiser that makes it possible to pull the image and individual layers from a Photoshop PSD file and save them as a RISC OS-native image format. There are some limitations as to the type of PSD file, but when such a file is loaded into the application it allows the main image and any layers to be saved as sprites (with a full alpha channel). It’s also possible to wrap all of the layers (though not the main image) into a Drawfile.

Anton also released an updated version of rRaw earlier this year. Version 0.04 of the application, which is able to read raw files from various digital cameras, benefits from a bug being addressed that affected some Nikon NEF 14-uncompressed files, and also gains some new features, such as the ability to export GPS geolocation data from the ‘About this image’ window.

Many thanks to Carlos Michael Santill√°n for giving providing me with a heads-up about these.
