    More Compatable....

    Would it be possible to make Artrage more compatable with other programs ..eg make Artrage pictures so they can be opened ???..... Jack.

    Export to jpeg or png and then import in whatever program that´s out there--what´s the problem with that? (Okay, maybe a layers thing, I understand, but it doesn´t seem much of a problem to me.)

    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Do you mean the ArtRage ptg files? We can't really make them more compatible with other applications because they need to store data very specific to the way ArtRage works. We do stuff with volumes of paint that no other application is doing.
    However we support exporting files as PSD because most other graphics applications can read those. You *do* lose some of the data about the way paint works when we export to PSD - there's nothing we can do about that.
    There are some image-viewer applications now supporting the ArtRage ptg format to access the preview information in the painting file.
    AndyRage's mantra for graphics engine code:
    "Sure - how hard can it be?"

    Andy... Thanks for that info..I can get around it by not saving as an Artrage painting,just as a PNG, which works quite well,and is compatable with just about everything and is about as lossless as you can get, I thought it must be some reasonlike that,thank you for explaining it.... Jack.

    Dear Scott....Jpeg is not lossless,so keeping a picture you are working on in PNG,or ArtragePTG,you dont lose detail, and now that we can post up to 2000 pixel size pictures,I was just wondering if there was any other way of making PTG compatible, but as Andy has just explained PTG contains lots more paint info,but changing to Jpeg to post is no real problem as you have said,and I agree.... Jack.
