View Full Version : IFF and Photoshop How to ?

01 January 2004, 11:27 PM
Im under photoshop 7

I made a search to find a way to open a IFF with Photoshop over this board and finally got over Highend 3D to get the plugin MayaIFF.8bi but my Photoshop makes an error every time i try to open the IFF file


anyone knows an other way to open IFF files with Photoshop 7 ?

OK ... First: Is it in the correct Folder ? I think sure, but however ...
Second: Have you first deleted the AmigaIFF File Format Import/Export extension ???

Sentenza Nop !!! i even reinstalled Photoshop 6 and looked that the File MayaIFF.8bi was really in folder C:\Photoshop 6.0\Plug-Ins\File Formats.

And on top of that i dont have a file called AmigaIFF i did an electronic search and manually checked that it was not on my Photoshop installation.

I used to open *.IFF files but i dont remember that it was that hard.

For some reason I found that if you put the plugin in the standard file formats directory PS doesnt find it. If you put it in 'Photoshop only file formats' though it does. Give that a try.
