I read about Jury wassname, but I don't think this is the pace to discuss the semantics of it
There is one major problem with the .psd format and that is that it is a propriatary format. Because of this The Gimp can load .psd but not save them. Adobe is not a nice company and was responsible for sending someone from another country to jail when they visited the US because they violated the DMCA even though in their country reverse engineering was legal. Adobe has also done other dirty little things like make killustrator change their name because it had illustrator in it even though that is a generic name. Eitherway I think in the game directory things will be saved in .png format. anyway you guys should have CVS access on sourceforge. think you probably can store it there. maybe we can create another module for storage for you guys there. All that needs to be shown on this forum is the occasional jpeg of what's going on for people to comment. I think Fatal, You and Maverik should all be on the core art team.
The reason I said to use psd is becasue it's an industry standard, strange the the gimp doesn't support saving them. Is there a plugin?
Also it's the best for working with layers, I find that other formats don't support layers as well.
The final graphics being saved as .png isn't a problem as each item can be saved as it's own file when we've finished the design.
