Importing PhotoShop PSD Files

One of my favorite graphics editing programs is Adobe PhotoShop, and it is very clear why PhotoShop is a leader in its field. Now you can import PhotoShop PSD files right into Flash.

The import process for PhotoShop files is easier than Illustrator or EPS files. Flash sees the imported PSD PhotoShop file as a bitmap. There are no layers to convert or any additional features. You simply select the PSD file, and it is imported into Flash. Download the flower.PSD file here.

What you will like is that the background around the graphic is invisible. This means that you can add additional graphics behind the imported PhotoShop bitmap.

In Figure 4, you can see an imported PhotoShop file with Flash drawings behind the bitmap.
