    Wow.  I just read this entire ridiculous thread and I gotta say it is just about the most pointless waste of time I have ever experienced.  I have been stymied for years as to why Photoshop suddenly forgot how to open a tiff file with a matte in it.  It really has been a bottleneck and a puzzling quirk in an otherwise remarkable professional tool.

     

    Chris, dude. Sorry to be blunt here but you're just about the most pig-headed person I've ever come across.  But I say this in the nicest way.  Okay, you win.   You win, man!  You're the smartest person on earth.  You're right about everything.  We're all ignorant morons and you're the main man who's righter than right.

     

    Now can we please just have a ******** OPTION, for crying out loud, to open a file with a matte in it exactly as it was saved.  Simple solution.  Nobody cares if it's the right way or the wrong way.  We just want to open the file without automatically applying the transparency information to the image.  Is great big Adobe too stupid to figure that out or what? 

     

    Sorry to be blunt here but holy cow.  I really don't know how else to put this except maybe in the future you could save us all about three hours of reading by just saying something like "Gee, thanks for the suggestion, we'll look into it." 

     

    I doubt this will be posted so you needn't bother answering.

    Files already open exactly as the file says it should be opened.

    If you save it with transparency, it opens with transparency.

    If you save it with alpha channels, it opens with alpha channels.

    Nothing is being "automatically applied", nothing is getting lost.

    They open exactly as they were saved.

     

    To be blunt: you really have no idea what you're talking about.

    If you save it with transparency, it opens with transparency.

    If you save it with alpha channels, it opens with alpha channels.

     

    WHERE? Show me an example where a 32bit exr with alpha channels opens with alpha channels intact into Photoshop? WHERE CHRIS? THat is why the thread was created in the first place.

    Everywhere:  Photoshop opens EXR images exactly as the EXR spec says it must.  (though we don't yet include channels beyond RGBA)

     

    Read back in the thread where Florian said just that.

    talking about the same thing.
