Importing Png Layers To Photoshop

Posted 15 July 2004 - 11:12 AM

Hi Gang,

I am turning over a development project to another developer. I did my graphics work in Fireworks because it integrates so nicely with Dreamweaver. But he only has Photoshop. He can't seem to import the layers and editable text -- I think PS is giving him a flattened file even though when I open up in Fireworks it's all good.

Anything I can tell him to get this to work?

i think adobe passed over png integration and instead went with .swv or something along those lines. i dont think its possible with default installations, there MAY be a plugin however.

well, the current versions of photoshop can read and write png, just not the kool layers stuff. and the readme on that file says:
