    How to Open Multiple Files into One Image with a Format Plug-in?

    Noel Carboni Community Member

      Basic overview question:

       

      I'm interested in creating a format plug-in that will open multiple image files and combine them, then provide one image to Photoshop for further work.

       

      1.  Can an .8bi plug-in receive notification of multiple files to be opened?  (Not unlike Camera Raw).  Or does one absolutely need to use an .8ba Import plug-in to do this?  I would prefer .8bi.

       

      2.  Assuming yes, could the latter parts of the plug-in interface be used to open just one combined image?

       

      Thanks!
