    Default Template Question for PSE users

    I am thinking about making my templates TIFF and PNG file types only... is there a reason why I shouldn't do away with the PSD files?

    Are you, as PSE users, able to use TIFF layered templates?

    and any other useful info I might need to know?

    At this time, I am not doing page files or sbc files

    I use pse and always use the tiff files!
    But I think some customers prefer psd files, I wonder if every program supports tiff????

    Lisa, TIFFs open just like PSD files, I can't tell the difference in PSE or PS and I even like them better because they show the template image as folder instead of the PSD logo ANNND they are usually a smaller file size.

    What she said! I use PSE 5.0 and use the TIFFS and trash the PSDs, so that works for me. What about GIMP users? Can they use TIFF or PNG?

    Thank you everyone for the input. IDK what Gimp can use... I suppose I'll open my unused gimp program and find out. I always have pngs, though, in my template packs.

    I love Tiffs, too, for the reasons above.. you can see the preview and they are smaller file sizes!

    Paint Shop Pro, as far as I know, doesn't open tiff files right.

    Sarah, do you know what files they use? PSD? (paint shop pro)

    also, Gimp was brought up..... I tried to open TIFF in Gimp, but it won't open as layers.
