I want to retouch a TIF created for export to Google Earth.
Problem is that Photoshop won’t open the TIF. I get “Could not open myfilename.tif because the file-format module cannot parse the file”.
I can sort of get round this by opening in Paint(!), saving as a BMP and then using PS. Fine except if an irregular shape image I lose the transparency that fills out the irregular shape to make a rectangular image. Surely the TIF file should be compatible with the world’s foremost image-processing software? It’s the latest version, but this problem isn’t new.
It’s not related to image size. I do have a feeling that PS may not support TIF transparency?
Surely this should be fixed? Any suggestions to workaround?
