hi, really like your product but could you answer a few questions, sorry if this is the zillionth time youve answered these...
can you import, jpeg, tiff, psd and raw format images and does it matter if some already contain paths and/or alpha masks?
can you import a tiff forground image and a psd background image or other mixed formats ?
can you import cmyk images or only rgbs?

regards

max

You cannot import .psd or raw images. You can import jpeg, tiff, png, tga, and others, and you can mix formats between the background, foreground and overlay. Each layer can be in any of the acceptable formats, they don't have to match.

Alpha channels will be automatically detected, when you import images with alpha channels already in place.

I've never tried importing images with paths (there's no way to use the paths in PhotoKey, regardless), but CMYK images work just fine.

There is a free demo you can download and try any of these out, to see how it behaves.
